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!

And whatever you do, in word or in deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. -- Colossians 3:17

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
