My Kaya arrived today... With hair that is so dry and knotted up that it feels like sandpaper, and man, for about half a second I thought it was textured. And I KNOW it shouldn't be. Kaya =/= Addy.

So, now, wonderful readers, should I brush it first, wash it first or braid spray it first. I'd suppose washing it first. I don't know what sort of crud is actually in it. OH, but I got a backpack out of the bargain, too, a nice thin plastic one with those straps that are like ... thin ropes. I actually like those.

Also, seller forgot to mention that either she, or someone in her family, or someone at the post office smokes... So poor Kaya smells like a smoker. I don't mind smoke. My dad smokes. But I'd have liked a warning. But I guess that's where braid spray, shampoo etc comes in.

Even despite all that, and being naked, I still adore her. She's absolutely beautiful.

Hey [personal profile] nethilia you're the doll whisperer. How much Braid Spray should you use on a doll whose hair feels like straw? Help a girl out?

As a smoker, I strongly feel people should let buyers know they're smokers prior to expecting them to pay for something. We cannot smell it, but nonsmokers definitely can.

I don't know much about AG dolls. Is Kaya an African American doll? If so, I don't know enough about the hair to help a whole lot. Or what material is used to create the hair. But if it's that screwed up, maaaaybe put a shitton of conditioner in it prior to trying to shampoo it? I'm sure someone can come along and tell me if that's a Very Bad Idea™ or not. :oP

Ooo! I love her! (Even if I'm scared of dolls! lol) Yeah, I'd think conditioner or a detangling spray would work. At least if kankelon is anything like actual NA hair. Oddly, I am now sympathizing with Kaya and her hair troubles. :oD NA hair tangles like whoa anyhow. :oP

Urgh, I'm sorry you ended up with a doll that smells of smoke. Smokers ought to make that clear! I don't smoke but if I did I'd let people know if I were selling something on ebay as it's blatantly obvious to non-smokers.

My Rebecca has dry hair at the ends. I expect dry hair from Addy as it's supposed to be textured and that's what a lot of textured black hair feels like. Emily's hair was soft and silky and felt like 'people' hair, just as Addy's did (Well, in that it felt like convincing 'people' hair, not that it was the same texture as Emily's white). But Rebecca's hair feels like straw in comparison! Not quite as bad as Kaya (and Rebecca doesn't smell of smoke), but it is pretty bad nonetheless.

You may be able to get the smoke smell out with Febreeze. I did that once with some stuff that smelled smokey. Like you, though, smoke doesn't bother me like it should despite my asthma because it smells like my uncle.

That's me and Newports. It used to be Benson and Hedges but my grandma stopped smoking when I was little. (Dad never did, I think.)

The sports was pretty awesome! I am getting a Superbowl shirt because WHOO! (Also I am convinced that the Seahawks won because I bought the cake, the family ate it all, and I paid attention. Don't tell me otherwise.)
