How to tame doll hair with one simple trick.
I grew up playing with Barbies, but mostly just when friends came over. I remember my mom spending hours sewing special outfits for my dolls. The sad thing was, I never really played with them. Now with two young girls in my house, you would think that I would be sewing the special outfits and tripping over well loved barbies. It must be genetic because the girls play with them some, but like me only occasionally. Barbie hair always seems to be out of control. We set up this simple indoor play salon to help fix Barbies hair, and the girls loved it.
Did you know that on March 9, 1959, Barbie (Barbra Millicent Roberts) debuted at the American Toy Fair in New York City. Who knew Barbie had a full name. Happy Birthday Barbie.

How to Fix Barbie Hair ~ Set up a Doll Hair Salon
As you can tell from one look at Ariel (decked out in Belle’s Dress), the barbies in our house are in need of some love. After some quick research on line about how to care for barbie hair, we set up a little salon.
My girls love this simple trick , and it totally works!
You will need:
- A Barbie ~ or similar doll or my little pony
- Barbie Hair Brush
- Hot water (but not boiling)
First, brush your barbies hair the best that you can. Then simply “dunk” her hair in really hot water for about 30 seconds and towel dry. Now all you need to do is give your barbie a new hair style.
Brush and style your barbies hair. Once the hair is dry, the frizz and snarls will be gone. OK, it’s not that magical but it will leave your barbies hair looking much, much better.
I love how they are all lined up. Bree is learning how to braid, and a captive audience like this is the perfect time to practice her budding skills.
The barbies look so cute all dressed up and hair done. Nothing like a trip to the salon to make a birthday special.
