The hair is crucial to Barbie doll
Who would have ever thought forty years ago that Barbie Dolls would still be such a popular item with little girls today? It seems as if these dolls are always in vogue.
Like anything, beauty is in the eye of the beholder and the same is true with collectors of these dolls. The true value is really dependent upon the person who is interested in the doll and what they are willing to pay for one. One of the things that goes a long way to determining the value of a Barbie is the hair. The hair used for Barbie and the hairstyles have been modified constantly for over four decades now. Taking care of a Barbie’s hair is crucial to her maintaining value. Even though a girl may not particularly care about what the Barbie is worth ,she will in most cases care about keeping her Barbie clean and looking pretty. This is one of the reasons that Barbie has remained such a timeless doll.
Keeping a Barbie’s hair clean is an easy thing because you can shampoo it with regular shampoo. This makes it easy and fun because the toy can share the bathtub with the child and they can both have their hair washed at the same time. Just be sure that the water used on the hair isn’t too hot because that can damage it. After shampooing and rinsing, a conditioner can be applied and the hair combed through to remove tangles. Be sure to never allow a blow dryer to be used, the heat can melt the doll.
