This doll has been saved, even though it took a lot more work than I was hoping for. For that reason, I give it the rating of:
I spent about 30 minutes combing through the crazy tangles. But that is not so bad considering how her hair looked before. I did not think it was possible to comb out some of those rats, but I guess the fabric softener helped because Dolly is looking much sleeker and less like a demonic wild woman. And her hair smells fantastic, too!
One last note: some people commented on the Pin about how toxic fabric softener is and were worried about using it on a child’s toy. I sprayed the stuff on, combed through it and let it dry thoroughly before letting my daughter play with it and I feel fine about that. But this is something you’ll have to decide for yourself.
