First alpaca hair


#1

I just got my first alpaca hair. I can’t believe how much it feels like real baby hair. It’s sooo soft. It’s a little static-y
and flyaway. Will that diminish once it’s rooted?


#2

It sits quite well once rooted Jean, and looks natural, but keep checking on the inside of the head when rooting, that the hair has gone all the way thru. I did experience some trouble with this on a kit. Of course it may have been that particular vinyl, who can tell.?

Thanks for the tip. I’m anxious to try it. Does this hair ‘finger curl’?


#4

I don’t think it would, it’s very very straight.


#5

I’m rooting for the first time with alpaca, and I’m experiencing the issue that @Missly21mentioned of hair not going all the way through. It looks beautiful, but I don’t think I will be able to properly glue it from the inside. Instead I plan to try the “applied hair” method that Melissa George uses. I’ll let you know how it goes!

I ended up doing just that with ‘Tink’.


#7

She’s beautiful!! And the hair looks great. Thanks for sharing :blush:

What did you stick it down with?

Jean, I follow MG Dolls Patreon and use the Golden brand A/D mediums.
