This tutorial covers how to use the reroot tool. My featured doll is actually just a spare head from a second-hand doll I rebodied. Let’s call her Heddy?
You Will Need:
- Cotton Swab
- Doll head
- Doll hair
- Embroidery sewing needles (size 7, 8 or 10)
- Reroot tool
- Waterproof craft glue
- Wire Cutter
Remove it from the body,and cut the hair as short as possible. Mechanical razors and a nail scissors will get it super-short. You can use tweezers to pull hair out through the neck hole. For this tutorial I removed the doll’s scalp and pulled out all the hairs to show the ridge details, but this is not needed for rerooting. Just get the hair as short as possible so you can see the holes!
4. Scoop the hair up with the reroot tool. Put it to a hole on the doll’s scalp. Always start at the bottom row, and root your way up the spiral… one circle at a time.

7. Styling. Now you doll's hair probably resembles a troll's. Style its hair straight by pouring boiling-hot water over it and letting it air-dry. Click here for more detailed styling instructions. Please have an adult assist you if you are under 13, or have difficulty holding the tea kettle on your own.
