My poor 18" dolls with red hair are bald!  Cry One is an early Springfield doll, and the other I got at a garage sale or thrift shop so I don't know what she is but she's not an American Girl, that much I can tell.

A couple years ago the Springfield doll lost all her hair and now the mystery doll is starting to do the same. The hair just falls out at the "roots."  Shocked

I want to make or buy them wigs - I was even thinking of buying a synthetic red Halloween costume wig - one wig might provide enough hair for both dolls.

However, my thinking on that is thus:  if it's cheap synthetic red hair, would I just be throwing my money away? On the other hand, if I pay for a pricey pre-made wig from a doll supply company, will I get a better product that won't be likely to self-destruct?

Thanks from me and my poor bald dollies for any light you can shed on this problem!

I think it would be a good idea to buy a wig. Antina's (http://dollsupply.com/shop/) has low prices and a pretty good selection of wigs. You can go higher:

I second the idea to buy some wigs. I've not had any luck making them myself Sad
