Reroot Services and Pricing

Quick and dirty details:

  • Payment is due when I receive your supplies and begin work on your reroot.
  • All reroots are done using the secure knot method.  Knots may be dabbed with craft glue for extra security.
  • There will be a $15 charge for hair removal if a scalp is sent with intact hair.
  • I do not paint scalps or reattach/remove scalps from dolls.
  • Buyer is responsible for all shipping costs, shipping costs depend upon your location. I prefer to ship with tracking, but if you choose not to do so, I am not responsible for lost items.

I have worked with the suppliers listed on my sidebar in previous fiber purchases and recommend their products.  I am more than happy to work with you to find the right fiber for your reroot, and willing to make all arrangements for the purchase and shipping of the fiber (you will need to send a prepayment to me for the cost of the hair). You will also need to supply a scalp for your reroot.   All fiber should be in washed, combed and ready-to-root condition and the scalp should be clean and free of hair, glue or paint.   Occassionally, I may have a scalp or some fiber on hand, which you may purchase from me at cost.

**Suggested amounts for fiber purchase are 2 oz. of Alpaca or 1.5 oz. of Mohair.

NOTE: If your hair is 10+ inches long and you want a very full, fluffy reroot or are planning to have it dyed you should consider purchasing an additional 1/2 oz. of hair. If you are purchasing hair that is less than 8 inches long, you can buy a 1/2 oz. LESS hair than the suggested amount above. Long hair = less bulk, thinner plugs, wispier look with some holes/rows skipped. Short hair = thicker, fuller hair with all rows/holes filled.**

I will use the entire amount of hair that you send and fill as many holes/rows as possible unless directed otherwise. I make small plugs. If you request a wispier, less poofy reroot, please be aware that this will often require me to skip holes/rows. I will root the hair to provide as much coverage as possible without making the scalp too bulky.

I’m willing to consider dyeing your fiber if time permits, but there will be an extra charge for the additional labor and supplies. Color results will vary depending on color variation in natural fibers. I only use dyes specifically formulated for use on mohair and alpaca fiber (no RIT, no KoolAid, no Dylon). I also test all dyed fiber to make sure it is colorfast and won’t fade or stain.

    Hi there. I was referred to you by Piparrot. My daughter would love new soft hair for her Blythe Prairie Posie. She would like it to be around the same length and color as the original hair, though obviously not an exact match. We are new to Blythe customizations and was wondering what the process is? Thanks so much for your help.

      Sorry—by process I meant; do you supply the hair, do I send the doll to you? Thanks!
