Tutorial: How to remove Blythe original hair & Repaint the Blythe scalp

It is not that hard to remove the blythe hair and repaint the blythe scalp. Average custom commission to remove the hair cost USD 30- USD 35. So, you save money if you can do it yourself.

What you need:

1. Tweezer or Crochet.
2. Acrylic paint. (suitable colour for the new hair colour)
3. Nail remover. (any brand)
4. Scissor.
5. Cotton pad.
6. Masking tape.

Step 1: By using the scissor, cut off the original blythe hair as shortest as possible.

 Step 2: By using the tweezer or crochet, gently pull out the hair inwards of the scalp.

 Tips: Preferable to flip the scalp inside out so that you can easily remove the hair.

 This is how it look from the inside after you done.

 Step 3: Gently flip back the scalp. Wash the scalp with clean water and soap. Make sure no more hair stick on the scalp.

 Step 4: Using the cotton pad and the nail remover, gently remove the scalp.

 Step 5: Clean the scalp one again with clean water and soap. Make sure it is completely clean.

 Step 6: Use the masking tape to tape around the edge of the scalp. Sorry, my masking tape is out of stock. So i'm using the cellophane tape for instead. But not too recommended to use this.

Step 7: Choose the best and closest colour to your new hair. For acrylic paint, i'm using the Plaid Apple Barrel brand (red hot glossy).

 Step 8: Paint 2 layers. Allow minimum 1 hour dry time for at least.

Step 9: Remove the masking tape only after the scalp completely dry. Preferably the scalp to stay overnight before you start your reroot job. 
And now you save your USD 35. Good Luck :)
