Last year we purchased the 2005 American Girl doll of the year, Marisol, on eBay. When she arrived, her hair was a mess. I knew it I had some work to do to fix her hair. I found other articles online that suggested using Downy softener to fix frizzy hair.
**Disclaimer**- I am NOT responsible for the outcome of your doll’s hair. American Girl does not endorse using Downy. Please do this at your own risk.
Here are the before pictures of Marisol:
What you will need to do is get a pan or dish to hold the Downy softener. Warning, you might want to use an unscented Downy or it WILL smell like the Downy fragrance.
After I soaked her hair in Downy for one hour, I rinsed with water.
