Do you have WHITE MOHAIR locks lying around in your supply stash?
I do. Bags of it.
I don't need white mohair, I need colors! So, I dyed it. It was so easy and cheap to do..... you've got to try this.
First, start with KOOL AID.
Put the kool aid into a glass or earthenware bowl with water. Approximate ratio = one package of Kool Aid : one and a half cups of water.
Add your mohair, one lock at a time. Consider combing each lock out before submerging it.
Add plenty of mohair and mix it all around with a non-metal spoon. You want the water to soak up into the mohair so it absorbs the kool aid as evenly as possible. You'll be suprised how much mohair you can get into the bowl.
Here are Two bowls of mohair- one grape and one cherry.
Let the mohair sit and soak overnight.
Rinse it out with water.
Remember scratch and sniff stickers from when we were kids?
Your dolls' hair will smell like that!
One last OPTIONAL step:
If you are worried about colorfasting the mohair, you can add some vinegar to make it set.
Rub the vinegar into the mohair, spray it on with a spray bottle, etc.
Let it air dry.
