How do you untangle American Girl doll's hair?

First, fill the spray bottle with half warm water and half liquid fabric softener and shake it to mix well. Lay a towel on a firm surface (I use our kitchen counter) and lay the doll on the towel with the hair spread out.

Can you wash an American Girl doll's hair?

American Girl dolls have soft cloth bodies that should not get wet or they run the risk of developing mold. The first step in washing your doll's hair is to undress the doll. Little hands can do this. Place a washcloth across the doll's face to protect her eyes, which will rust if they get wet.
