Rerooting Tool Tips

  • Make sure the needle is in the center of the cross of the collet
  • Use small plugs of hair. Rooting multiple smaller plugs in one hole rather than using one large plug helps avoid scalp splits and needle breakage
  • Use the regular needle in the reroot tool to pre-poke holes to make it easier to insert hair with the rerooting needle or to create new holes in the doll’s head
  • Keep the needle length at 1/2” or shorter to avoid bending the needle
  • Tighten the tool with pliers rather than by hand to make sure it’s extra secure
  • Wipe the needle and collet with rubbing alcohol or acetone to remove any traces of grease or oil that may cause the needle to slip
