I've been hearing about glue head amongst the other doll rescuers (#rescueddolls), and now I have had my first experience. This Ever After High doll, purchased at our thrift store, came home with very waxy hair.
What to do? A regular shampoo and conditioner didn't help. I've heard of people using Goo Gone, but I didn't happen to have any of that. Some people cut the hair out and re-root with new hair. Too much work! YouTube said I could use baby powder, but the closest thing I had was corn starch.
No longer separating and looking wet.
What did I NOT do? A boil wash. Rumor has it that only melts the glue in the head and lets more seep out. All washing was with cool water.
