My dreads came a few days ago and I adore them! The customer service was more than perfect, quick replies and seller was super friendly. The order came adorably wrapped (even with a little seahorse matching my ocean dreadlocks theme) and the dreads are super soft and really well made! My doll will love his new wig, thank you so so much <3

My Story

I took all of the knowledge gained through over 35 years of my personal experience and generations of my families trades and hobbies and cooked them all together to make beauty and delight that can be found in my shop.

All the creations in my shop are created by me personally. I do have the pleasure to create for and run my shop alone.

Let the Muse take me where I will happily follow:)

Frequently asked questions

How much hair does a Blythe reroot use?

1.5 ounces to 2 ounces depending on desired thickness.

Do you accept custom orders?

Yes. I personally make all of my doll hairs and I love to make custom colours.

How to care for Suri Alpaca Doll hair?

You can treat it like fine human hair. I wash mine with a gentle dish soap(baby shampoo works well, too). Any human conditioner may be used. You can even curl or straighten to suit just like the hair on your head.

Can I get the hair shipped to a different address?

I have sent plenty of hair directly to the Reroot Artist. It is no problem at all, as long as the Artist is in the same Country as you are.

If your Artist is in a different Country, please have them purchase instead. Etsy does not allow me to change the Country to ship to.

Also, please know that I am not responsible for any custom fees or charges, so please work this out ahead of time with your Artist.

If you have any questions?

Please contact me at anytime through the Etsy Convo system. I check for Convos constantly throughout each day. I am always happy to help!
