How to make a natural hair doll!

What you’ll need:


  • A doll. I got her on Amazon for €20 (R300)
  • Pipe cleaners. R19,95 at the Crazy store
  • Cup of boiling water



Step 1



Grab a few strands of the dolls hair and curl/roll them around the pipe cleaner working from the root to tip. When you reach the tip of the strands cut the pipe cleaner and do it again with the other strands. Continue until her whole head is done. This took me about an hour to do.

Step 2

When you’re done, dip her head in the boiling water and hold it in there for around 30 seconds.

Step 3

Let her hair dry overnight.

Step 4



When her hair is dry, remove the pipe cleaners and separate her curls. Voila! Gorgeous curly hair!!
