Hey Everyone,

So much has been happening at MyLittleCustoms HQ since I took over that I have barely found time to blog about it!

These are VERY exciting times indeed, not only am heavily pregnant and due to give birth literally any day now, I have also been busy sourcing great new product lines, writing a fab Hair Dyeing Tutorial and even MORE excitingly, sourced some brand new, totally exclusive hair lines which you cannot find anywhere else!!

Firstly, I must tell you about the new hair.

We have 6 new EXCLUSIVE hair colours on the site that you will not find on any other customising supplies website. It has taken us a little time to get it prepped and ready for launch and so offer huge thanks to everyone for being so patient with us 😀

Firstly we have 2 colours of GLOW IN THE DARK HAIR! Whoop whoop! This has been so hard for everyone to find given it has been out of stock for SUCH a long time so we are super excited to be able to bring it back for you all!

Not only are we stocking the standard white hair which glows, we are also stocking green!

Glow in the Dark GREEN Glow in the Dark WHITE

Alongside the Glow in the Dark hair, we are also now stocking UV COLOUR CHANGE HAIR. UV Changing hair? What on earth is that? Is it like the Thermal Colour Change hair? No! It’s totally new!!

Instead of requiring heat to change, it is UV reactive so all you need is sunshine! The longer / stronger the daylight is that is exposed to the hair, the darker it goes. Awesome stuff!

This is also fantastic news for all you My Little Pony restorers … finally hair which can be used to restore the UV strip in the Sunshine Pony hair 😀  (talking of ponies, did you know we also stock tinsel?)

UV Reactive Hair YELLOW   UV Reactive Hair PINK   UV Colour Change Hair PURPLE   UV Colour Change Hair BLUE

Available in yellow, pink, purple and blue there is bound to be a UV Colour Change shade for you!

We really hope you are as excited about the new hair as we are 😀

Having said all that, it’s not just the hair lines that we have been focusing our attention – we have been Blythe crazy here!

My Little Customs is really proud to be stocking a wide range of Blythe goodies, most of which are exclusive to us! Nowhere else in Europe can you find our RBL & FBL Face Plates, Blythe Scalps, Twiggy Twiggy & CoolCat Pull Rings, our new range of super kawaii Hair Accessories from Japan …. not to mention the fact we were the first to stock Brainworm Eyechips alongside all our other exclusive Blythe usuals of Lip Stickers, Eye Foils, Mini Hair Clips …… phew!!

      

You can see everything we have to offer on the main Blythe Category of our website.

Don’t forget, the BEST place to hear things first is our Facebook Page 😀

We can currently offer the following services:

  • Nylon hair reroots*
  • Saran hair reroots*
  • Polypropylene hair reroots*
  • Eyelash reroots

* full head reroot or highlights, restoration or complete new colour.

You can also choose from different reroot methods, depending on your personal requirements.

Tool and Glue

A very quick method which only takes a few hours per doll. When the reroot is finished, the hair is secured on the inside using special glue. This method is completely safe and secure, once dry the hair can be brushed and styled as normal.

Knot Method

Most people prefer the knot method although it takes much longer. The hair plugs are individually knotted from the inside and no glue is used. Equally safe for washing, brushing and styling.

Prices start from:

Tool and Glue – £30

Knot Method – £40

Eyelashes – free with any reroot!

Please note, the above prices are a guide based on a Fleur / Sindy sized doll requiring 2 packs of reroot hair, please contact us with your requirements for an individual tailored quote. All prices are in GBP. 

FAQ’s

  • Can you reroot my Barbie / Sindy / Tammy / Patch / Pippa / Gail / Daisy / any other dolly not listed here?

Yes! Any doll can be rerooted using the above methods, the main difference which will affect cost will be regarding the time and amount of hair needed based on your girls head size and amount of hair plugs! Please contact us to discuss your requirements and to receive your individually tailored quote 😀

 

  • My doll is only missing a few plugs, can you save her?

Yes! We have nearly 200 different colours of hair to choose from so should be able to provide a close, if not exact, match for your dolls original hair.

 

  • Can you do more than one colour in her hair?

Yes! Anything is possible! Please contact us to discuss your requirements and to receive your individually tailored quote 😀

 

  • Can I see some more examples of Fleur Dolls work?

Of course! Many photos can be seen in the Re-Root Gallery here on the My Little Customs blog, or alternatively, you can view her album of reroots on Flickr.

Don’t forget to visit the Fleur Dolls website www.fleurdolls.com !

Got a question you don’t see written here? Please do not hesitate to get in touch!

Evening everyone,

I am thrilled to finally announce that the polypropylene hair is now in stock!

I am stupidly excited to have a BRAND NEW stock line, I am a hair addict 😀

I am sure you all have many questions about the polypropylene and I will do my best to answer them.

PP colour range

 

What is polypropylene?

Polypropylene looks and feels exactly the same as Nylon, if I called it Nylon you wouldn’t know it was anything different! (All apart from 4 colours, I shall get to those in a little while)

I have not yet had a chance to properly “play” with it so am going purely on how it feels straight from the packet, alongside the “official” spiel about the Polypropylene.

The colours are AMAZING, really unusual and unique. They are just as soft and shiny as the Nylon so I promise you will love it!

 

Can Polypropylene be boil permed?

The “official” answer: 99% sure that yes it can. Toy manufacturers curl it and style it all the time so if they can do it, so can we! Factory styling is always done using heat.

My personal answer:I have not yet tried it as it has literally just arrived with me, I have only got as far as fawning over the colours and photographing it. This weekend I am planning to do a reroot with it at which point I shall try both methods of curling, both air drying and boil perming. I shall report back with photos and results shortly!

 

Can I reroot using both Nylon and Polypropylene on the same doll? Yes 🙂

 

If I reroot the same doll using both Nylon and Polypropylene together, can I boil perm it? Again, 99% yes, both Nylon and Polypropylene should react the same way, however, I have yet to put this to the test!

 

Can I request a blend of a Nylon colour with a Polypropylene colour? Yes! You can blend the 2 types of hair together, that is not a problem.

 

OK, what about the 4 colours you mentioned earlier?

This is based on my first impression, this may change once I have had a play with the hair!

The 4 matte colours, Caliente, Daring, Hypnotic and Frivolous feel slightly different to the rest of the Polypropylene range.

They are heavier and have a slight greasy feeling, similar to Saran. However, the fibres are a little drier, perhaps a slightly heavier denier? If you have tried Pinky Pinky or Nitro Lime Saran you will understand what I mean!

These 4 colours are the only ones which I would say are not EXACTLY like the Nylon, although the colours are fab and the quality of the hair is second to none 🙂

Right well, all this is purely my personal first impression, the quality seems exceptional and I am impressed with the Polypropylene 😀

Expect further updates soon and I hope you are all as excited as I am about having the Polypropylene as a new addition to the My Little Customs line!
