jessimocha-- Owly (I think?) has instructions on her blog that are AWESOME. It looks as though her way makes for much less bulky and overwhleming hair. She has lots of patterns for sale too that look really well done.
I just took a bunch of lengths of yarn (twice as long as I wanted the hair to be), doubled them over and pulled the loop through a stitch, and pulled the ends through the loop. Doing it this way makes a massive amount of yarn hair, so make the neck very strong! I mean, neckless basically or the head will flop all over. I was going to take pictures but my camera battery is dead. Sorry
If you need them let me know, I can take them tomorrow!
sara_dippity-- thanks for your concern
I'm sure most people that I would make the dolls for already know I'm weird and appreciate my weirdness. If I spend this much time making a doll for someone that doesn't appreciate it they better not ever think they're getting a random gift from me again!! lol
