At Home Doll Hospital ; Saige

Hello Sunshines! 
Today I'm going to show you how my doll Saige's hair went from...

This. >-<

To this! :D

So, you may be wondering...
Why yes, she was. Over a year ago, I took dear Saige to my dad's house. My dad has a german shepherd. That german shepherd loves chewing. One night, I came home to find this doll in the jaws of Gunner, the dog, stuffing spilling out. 
I have since admitted Saige to the AG doll hospital, where they replaced her torso. (Which had a gaping hole in it.) However, Saige's hair was still a big problem. Damaged by slobber and sharp teeth, it has been a MESS for quite a while now. 
Mess, no more!
Here's how I did it.

Saige and the supplies:
Dove conditioner (it's super gentle)
Water spray
Container with water

First, this was the big part. I mixed to Dove conditioner into the water, making a kind of gross-looking solution. Then, I dunked Saige's hair in it. I started with the tips, and scrubbed the hair thoroughly. I worked my way up to the top eventually, stopping before I reached her wig-cap. 

After letting her hair soak for 20 minutes or so, I took it out, and dried it with the towel. I laid Saige down with a AG hairstyling cape over her to keep the damp hair from damaging her cloth body.

Next, I cut her hair. *cue the gasps of terror* I didn't cut much, but the ends were rather unrepairable, so they had to go. 

Her hair is a tad uneven here, I later trimmed it better. I actually much prefer Saige with shorter hair.

I wrapped her hair up in curl-buns. You can find he full tutorial on this awesome curling technique HERE! It's really a miracle. It can tame and renew even the most ruined of curls. (Even though it looks weird.)

WOO HOO! Bouncy, silky, soft, strong curls!

Saige is thrilled to be beautiful again.

Look at the difference!!!
Bye-bye sunshines!

Do you like Saige's new look? I think this almost calls for a new name... ha ha! Do you guys have any ideas? I'm always open to name suggestions. Fun Fact: Maddie @ Dolls On My Mind named Astrid!


  1. Ooh, Saige looks beautiful!! Hmm, how about.... Ember, Liberty, Ashtynn, Kimberly, Forest, Cady (pronounced Like Katie), Naveah, Leighton, Tinsley, Dakota, Rowan, or Evelynn? :)

    1. Thank you! I really like Liberty and Naveah. Tinsley is cute, but too close to my own name! :P

  2. She looks wonderful! I'm tempted to condition Julie's hair; it's not terrible, but kind of dry and frayed.

    1. Thank you, Gracie! I'd do it. It's a very mild and safe way to restore doll hair. I'd love to see how it works for you with Julie! I've never done this to a straight-haired doll.

  3. You did such an amazing job with Saige's hair! My Saige's hair is kind of getting dry at the ends... Do you think this would work just for the ends, or are ends pretty much hopeless? :P

    Ooh, and here are some names I think would be cute for Saige:


    1. Thank you! I think it's worth a shot for the ends, and even if it doesn't fix them, it won't do any damage!


Thanks for taking the time to comment!
I read all my comments and reply to most of them.
Please no swearing at all.
Thank you! <3
