I have wanted Kanani’s hair to be curly. Ever since she came on December 9th, 2013, I have wanted her curly hair back. She came right before lunch, and after I ate, I raced up stairs and combed through Kanani’s rough hair. I twisted a section around my finger, and I convinced myself that it was curly.
But it wasn’t.
Eventually, I combed out her “curls”. Next, I tried a makeover. Take that times four. 4 makeovers, and not a single one of them worked. I loved how her hair always turned out, but it never lasted.
After every makeover, I told myself to give up, that I could never fix Kanani’s hair. After a while though, I would change my mind and try again. It was always beautiful afterwards, but it never worked.
This is what it looked like in my September makeover, but it straightened out in a couple of days.
I have always wanted to send Kanani to the doll hospital for a new head. Then she would have curly hair.
A few days ago, I was ready to send her. I printed out the submission form, and filled most of it out, checking the box next to the “New Head” . I gave it to Kanani, and she didn’t know what to think. She also wanted some new clothes, but she couldn’t decide, because she could only choose one.
Pros of Getting Kanani’s New Head:
1. Kanani would have curly hair
2. She would look pretty in photo shoots.
3. I would want to play with her more.
Cons of Getting Kanani’s New Head:
1. I would worry about messing up her hair.
2. It would cost $44.
Since I can’t make a decision, I will put it on hold, and use my money for something for my blog. Hint hint. ;)
Kanani is relieved. She doesn’t want to leave me, but she does want a new head. She can’t decide either so she would rather wait until after.
Kanani’s beauty is not just in her hair. It’s in her personality. In her smile. Her bright green eyes, and her complexion. When I took photos of her, I realized this. She is beautiful without curly hair, and now I am even more thankful that I have a Kanani doll.
