Here's what you'll need:
an American Girl brush or other wire-wig brush-
( NEVER use your hair brush in your dolls hair! )
My doll-hairbrush is a dog brush from the pet store
A misting bottle of water-
Always mist your dolls hair before styling.
This will keep it neat, make brushing easier, and prevent split end/dryness
a un-sharpened pencil-
You'll use this to shape Rebecca's curls
a bottle of braid spray ( you can get it at the Beauty Supply store)-
Rebecca's hair is especially prone to dryness, so braid spray keeps it shiny
Hair bow- this is optional, I just think it looks pretty :)
Start by misting Rebecca's hair with water, but be careful of her eyes.
Spray some braid spray on too, but not too much, or her hair will feel oily.
roll up the section of hair on the pencil
Now, carefully unravel the rolled-up hair
You can twist it around your finger to shape it
So you can shape 3 or 4 smaller curls
Twist a section of hair on a pencil
remove the pencil, and secure it with a bobby-pin
In the morning, she'll have nice curls!
Have fun playing with your dolls hair! :)
