Sealing rooted mohair

Post by Desma » Sat Jan 28, 2017 7:12 pm

I have heard from a reborn artist that she has never sealed the inside of the head by using glue. She has made over two hundred reborns and never had a bad feedback about the mohair coming out. She says that she heats the head up after it is rooted and that makes the vinyl close up around where it is rooted. Has anybody heard of this before?

I heat the head up also but I also seal the hair inside.
