My Little Pony - Frizzy/Matted Hair fix.

Picture of My Little Pony - Frizzy/Matted Hair fix.
Welcome!
In this tutorial im going to show everyone how i fix matted or frizzy my little pony hair. There isn't really any correct way of doing this, this is just how i do it. Theres lots of concern about melting the pony, or shrinking or melting the hair and ive never had any of this happen with the method i am showing you now.

Please note im not an expert, this is just how i learned to do it.

Step 1: Things you will need.

This is a pic of everything i use to fix the pony.

Step 2: Shampooing and cleaning the body.

I wet the pony down, all over. Be super careful not to get it in the holes or it can go inside the pony and cause mold or smell and rust the tail. Once she is all wet i grab a small amount of shampoo and i shampoo the tail and mane first until really soapy. I use some of the excess soap and put it on the body, i then grab my old toothbrush and give the pony an all over scrub. Please be careful to avoid the cutie marks and eyes etc, as some are fragile and may just scrub right off.

Step 3: Conditioning and Detangling

Okay so now that you have shampoo'd her and given her an all over scrub she should already be looking a bit better, grab your conditioner and massage some through. About the same amount as i showed in the last step. Once you think you have gotten it through nicely, take a good firm hold of her like shown in the image, and start brushing her hair VERY GENTLY from the bottom and work your way up til it looks like the next picture. Do the same with the tail. :)

Rinse her out again and you will notice a very decent improvement :D give her a rough dry and another light brush.

does this work on normal dolls

Hey, i used it on a monster high doll, if that helps any. I dont think it matters on the doll as long as the hair is the same as the pony (Nylon Hair) :)

Thank you.

Aww thank you :D The main reason i did it was because as a kid i used to get so bummed out about their hair. The more i brushed it the worse it got, so thats how this came about.
I understand what you are talking about. Now the bad hair days are gone forever with your tips! well . . . . at least most of the bad hair days! Have a great day!
