How I reroot a doll….

The type of hair I used here is a mix of Midnight Black and Brunette Saran (mainly midnight black) purchased from My Little Customs. You can also get the long needle to make your “tool” from her as well.

    Your method is still the best one! I love the cork handle idea on your needle.


    To update… I’ve up the amount strands I use in a plug to 40-50.

    There needs to be a tutorial on how to handle and separate/combine hair without getting it tangled up all over the place. lol Do you set aside a number of plugs before you start? I’m finding myself 5 hours later with one plug in and doll hair all over and a tangled mess of the rest of it.


    You are a GENIUS! This is the absolute BEST method !


    The BEST genius method Ice. I share this link all the time.
    Mr Calvin – I buy 38″ hanks. I wrap a tiny piece of paper around the middle (with the color name written on it)& use a magnet to hold the paper to a metal table. I only take a few strands out at a time (sometimes only one) being careful that the strands I pull out aren’t tangling up the hair on the other end & that the whole thing doesn’t fall on the floor in a tangled heap. I lay them on my kitchen counter, line up the ends & WET them. I keep wetting with every few strands. I count 36-42 strands. Then I cut the 38″ wet clump in 4 parts for Ken, 3 parts for long hair & 2 parts for REALLY long hair & knot the pieces in the center. When I put the hank away I put a clip on the hank over the paper in the center, fold the hank in half & put the arms of the clip over the hank. I use those plastic paper clips (they’re usually black) that have the metal arms (hope that makes sense) To store the hanks, I carefully lay my hanks (folded in half like I said) on a huge piece of fabric, fold the sides of the fabric over it & carefully fold it all to fit in a box.
