Each and every head I root is just another blank canvas for me and I always look forward to the end result. Each baby truly comes to life with that perfectly rooted head. I always try to keep my hair age and gender specific as I find this is truly important in a finished doll. Granted majority of the babies I reborn are newborn sized babies I will have a rooted Toddler to add very soon!
If any of you are wondering I am a Slumberland or Delta Dawn user as a rule, I have found both these suppliers are always reliable and their hair provides that amazing look I want to achieve on each and every head. I prefer to use kid when possible as a real baby's hair tends to be very fine and soft and kid is the perfect hair to use to get the most real life effect.
I use a 43g single barb needle on every head that I root as this needle has never failed me! I am able to pick up 1-2 hairs per follicle this way and try to keep it at a single hair per when possible. Stray or thick hairs are always plucked out. All heads are rooted from the END of the hair, never from the middle.
I love finishing a baby's hair, seeing the improvement I make with every head and one day I will be ultra micro-rooting! Here is the latest head of hair that I rooted on my Angel by Olga Auer, truly love. He will be available for adoption very soon so keep an eye out for this one, you will not want to miss him!
