Quality Tibetan hair does not require adding any conditioner to it. REMEMBER.. anything you can use on your own hair you can use on the Tibetan lamb hair. You don't need to purchase special products. I do not recommend using conditioner, but you can use any kind of conditioner, shine spray, mouse, hair spray, or fixative that is sold in the hair care isle of any store. Don't waist your money buying special so called "Tibetan hair conditioner". It's just drug store products repackaged with a hefty price increase!
You can wig your doll by creating a scull cap with the skin. My advanced patterns include directions for creating a wig using my Tibetan skin.
I do not offer a separate wig pattern...
You can also cut the hair from the skin and apply it to the dolls head using Fabri-Tac or a Thick Tacky craft glue. Use only a small about of glue and work on one line of hair at a time. Apply the hair towards the face. After the glue has set you can brush the hair back to create a very realistic hair line.
To re-set the curl in the hair simply dampen it with tap water and scrunch the hair with your fingers. I use a spray bottle to wet the hair. When rewetting dyed hair some discharge will occur. Caution should be used to avoid dyeing your hands and clothing.
Use a hair pick for permed hair or a wide toothed comb to untangle the hair.
Just about anything you can do to human hair you can also do with Tibetan lamb skins/hair.
This includes Dyeing, Curling, Using Hair Care Products (wax, hair spray, mousse Etc.) to manipulate the hair.
You can set the curl in the hair using tap water and curlers or perm rods. You can also use a curling iron to straiten, set or soften the curl.
To get a wind blown look apply a little water or hair wax, manipulate the hair with your fingers using a hair dryer to set the style.
If you wet the skin please do not dry the skin in direct sunlight. This will cause the skin to stiffen making it difficult to work with.
If you sew the skin use a dull needle to remove the hair from the sewn seam line.
To avoid cutting the hair cut only through the skin.
Please remember the Tibetan lamb skins are a natural product and contain lanolin. Variations in color are a natural occurrence and should not be thought of as a defect!
