If your daughter has a Corolle brand doll or styling head, how is the hair holding up?

If your daughter has a Corolle brand doll or styling head, does she brush or style the hair a lot? If so, how is the hair holding up to actual use?

  • The hair of a Corolle doll imitates real children's hair. Infant dolls have Angel hair. Corolle has a patent for this very fine hair. Corolle also uses what is known as rooted hair. Rooted hair is hair which is stitched into the scalp. It is made of nylon and can be either straight, curly or wavy.

    Unlike other manufacturers, instead of rooting 24 threads in each stitch hole on the head, Corolle roots 6 or 12 threads which gives a very natural look. Because children enjoy hair play, the hair styles are very long on the toddler dolls. Modern cuts which really look like today's childrens' hair styles, are also used.

    The hair is washable and can be treated like real hair using a curling iron briefly (a few seconds only), a hair dryer on low setting, and shampoo as long as the water does not exceed 105 degrees Fahrenheit.

    Collectible dolls are not really play dolls. Most have hair which is actually a wig made of Kanekol
