Are there any dolls with long hair that stays brushable instead of turning into a frizzy matted mess?

My 3 year old LOVES fixing hair. She likes to brush it and put rubberbands in it, so she really needs one with longer hair. She has a Barbie Styling head, but the hair is almost always a frizzy tangled mess. What I have read is that most all doll's hair gets this way when it is actually played with. Even the reviews I read for American Girl dolls said the ones with longer hair had this problem. My scalp is sore from my daughter's "styling"...we really need a new doll or styling head! Are there any dolls available that have long hair that can actually be brushed and styled?

  • maybe buy a good wig from a wig store, and superglue it to one of them head thingys or something, this way she's not using the synthetic crap hair they put on them adorable dolls

  • Can you wash the doll or styling heads ? If yes, then maybe wash it with a detangling shampoo might help ?

  • Thanks! My husband's cousin is a hair stylist. Maybe I'll give her a call and see if she can hook me up with something.
