How to Keep Barbie Hair Looking Great


If you love Barbie, you know she has stunning multicolored locks, fun accessories, and an irresistibly fashionable outfit. To keep her looking her best, it’s essential that her clothing and hair receive proper care.


Many collectors successfully clean their dolls using gentle soaps and fabric conditioners such as Downy to detangle and soften the hair. However, be careful, as some products could alter the hair color of certain dolls.

Brushing and Conditioning

To keep Barbie’s locks healthy and tangle-free:

1. Brush out her hair using a hairbrush.

2. Apply a small amount of conditioner to her head to soften her locks, decrease tangles, and protect her scalp.

3. Use a metal doll comb or dog comb to distribute the conditioner evenly.

4. Rinse her hair before air-drying it.


Washing Barbie’s hair helps maintain its look and prevent further tangles.

1. Heat a pan of water until it reaches a comfortable temperature.

2. Dip the doll’s hair into the warm water for five seconds to soften it for easier combing.


Regular conditioning keeps Barbie’s hair shiny and healthy.

1. Work a small amount of moisturizing conditioner through her locks.

2. Rinse her hair using lukewarm water.


Style Barbie’s hair for every outfit and occasion, such as waves, curls, braids, buns, or ponytails. You can also accessorize with bows or other accessories.
