Before Christmas we had a big decision to make: Introduce Barbie or delay further, even though our 5 year old really wanted one like her friends. One thing I didn’t consider was how to comb Barbie hair.
We had already found a Barbie knock off that had long Rupunzel hair.
Rupunzel hair sucks.
Barbie can bring a bald Barbie. I’ll pretend for the moment that the real reason I want a Barbie who is bald is for those with various ailments that take away their hair.
Telogen Effluvium has you losing hair? Vote for a bald Barbie.
Chemotherapy has you losing hair? Consider requesting a bald Barbie.
Lupus has you losing your hair? Petition Matel for a bald Barbie.
Alopecia Areata has you losing your hair? A bald Barbie may just be something to bring public acceptance of your situation.
Barbie and her knock off friends should come with disclaimers. I hear American Girl Dolls can be sent in for new hairdos when their hair gets knotted. I think they just re-hair them. Seriously. This doll’s hair will be staying in braids. Otherwise, we’ll just give her a nice buzz cut. She’d look good that way. next up: Barbie wigs.
Oh, as a matter of fact. Vintage Barbie had a wig option. You can even buy it on Amazon (affiliate link enclosed).
What are your tips if someone asks how to comb Barbie hair?
Is a bald Barbie sounding better?
