  1. 1

    Remove mats and knots with a Barbie brush. Work from the bottom of the hair up to the roots. For severe knots, spray a light mist of an anti-tangle spray in her hair before brushing.

  2. 2

    Apply a dime-sized amount of conditioner into her hair. Comb the conditioner into her hair. Avoid rubbing/massaging the conditioner into the hair, as this can cause more mats and knots. Leave the conditioner in for three minutes.

  3. 3

    Rinse the conditioner out with cool water. Because the hair is made of a plastic, never wash it under hot water as it can start to melt.

  4. 4

    Wrap a small hand towel or a piece of paper towel around the hair. Squeeze gently to remove excess water.

  5. 5

    Apply a dime-sized amount of baby shampoo to the hair. Comb the shampoo through with a brush, then rinse the shampoo out with cool water.

  6. 6

    Repeat Steps 2, 3 and 4.

  7. 7

    Spritz the hair with a leave-in conditioner to keep the hair shiny and tangle-free.
