PARENTING : how to smooth your child's dolls hair

It's finally happened guys, my daughter is into dolls big time and even more so when it comes in Disney anything. 

I am super excited I have to say because this is something I have Beene airing to happen since the day she was born, I LOVE dolls. But I HATE the synthetic hair it's a pain in the ass and by the end of the playing day it looks like her dolls (mainly elsa) looks like the poor doll has run through a hedge backwards. 

Trying to tame synthetic hair is a complete bitch but you have to do it to ensure that the dolls actually last longer than 5 minutes. 

There are a number of ways out there that are floating around the Internet on how to make the fizz disappear, but I have a personal favourite and I pretty much use it for everything and this secret weapon is coconut butter. I love it, it's truly amazing I eat it and I use it on my body and hair. 

So I had a light bulb moment and thought this was going to be a winner for poor elsa's hair. And it worked perfectly., it made it easy to brush and style back into a plait and has made it easier e erg day after to keep it styled. 

Autumn was super excited when she saw her hair the next day she thought it was magic and elsa did it herself. 

I can honestly say I am so happy I always have coconut butter at home because I can see I will be needing it a lot in the future as more dolls make its way into our home. 

You can buy it in any health food shop or online. 

Hope this helps any parents out there

  1. Genius idea! I'll definitely be doing that now. I hate dolls purely because of the hair, but I can get my little lady to do this and be happier to brush the hair. Thanks

  7. Ahhh thank you so much for this! My daughter had dozens of dolls with wacky hair styles so I will definitely be trying this out. I can't believe how knotty their hair gets, it's ridicolous xx

  8. This post makes me laugh so much! You blog is so lighthearted and encouraging for women and mothers. That is why I want to nominate you for a Liebster Award! You can read more about it on my site http://www.7seasonsstyle.com/2015/09/its-oki-have-liebster.html but it's a little award passed through the blogging-sphere. Keep doing what you are doing, laughing and smiling along the way!~~~~

  9. LOL. I never even thought that smoothing a doll's hair was that hard. Then again, my sister and I didn't have dolls with long hair except Barbies and some of them quickly got huge tangles in their hair. I'm so glad your daughter has finally copied your love for dolls.

  10. All my daughters dolls end up with the 'hedge' look. I would have never thought of using cocoa butter! x

  11. We don't have dolls to worry about, but I shall be sharing this for my friends who have kids who like dolls. Coconut oil is such a helpful thing to have around.

  12. My daughter isn't really interesting in dolls like this yet - but I am going to file this away as I think it going to be really useful when she is a bit older! Thanks for the tip!
