I love everyone's restores so far! I'm digging through my photobucket for some pics. I always forget to take before pics but I've cleaned up some gross ponies.

Here's my sister's childhood Baby Quackers that I rehaired.

I have 2 more!

Again, only hair (and a body scrub for Tropical Breeze, she was GRIMEY) Quackers' hair was a real mess though, especially her tail. I had to de-frizz the tail, and all of Breeze's hair. (Q's mane however came out lovely with just a conditioner+combing, and I managed to revive her curl there, too)

I'll have some more impressive restorations in a few days when everyone finishes drying, but for now here's my first cleaned up So Soft! Oxyclean and conditioner did wonders on her!

This is the only before photo I have. She's in the back on the left with the dark glue on her face and tight curls. (Not the one on the right with crazy wild hair.) I thought she was so sad and beautiful I couldn't resist her. She was crazy cheap. This is from January 2012.

Its winter now so I can't get great photos, but wow. She looks like a million bucks! And she's so, well, soft!

Her curls even bounced back! I didn't comb her hair or anything and was terrified to loose them. They're not quite as tight of course but still plenty pretty :)

Of course, it took so long that her color is off now, but given what she looked like before (which was discolored anyway).  :P  Here's a comparison with my near mint one:

Breyer my jaw is on the floor... absolutely amazing rescues! Those Glow n Shows!!  And this is just astonishing... huge pat on the back for tackling that:

I had bought a really rusty Napper (there were huge chunks of rust in her,) around a year ago- so here she is before: (please excuse the poor lighting ^^; )

Pretty gross, right? But there was a pony under all that rust. Here she is after her long spa day...

I also have a few baits waiting to be restored, just gotta wait for all the materials to arrive  :biggrin:

Wow wow!! Amazing... you might be able to get that last bit of rust out of her tail with toothpaste and a toothbrush... then lots of hot water and conditioner to smooth it down.

LOVING all the restorations everyone!  Seeing ponies get a second chance when possible rather than be customized warms my heart :lovey:

Keep them coming! :D

This is my favorite kind of post, you guys really are amazing.  That poor Peppermint Crunch was one of the dirtiest ponies I have ever seen and now she looks like heaven! Thanks for sharing your talents everyone!

These are all very impressive!

I have to ask, what do you guys use to defrizz besides conditioner? I heard fabric softener works but I want to make sure it's safe. I have a Happyglow who is in very good shape besides the fact that she has horrifically frizzy hair. I almost thought about buying a new one but and selling her eventually but I'd like to try to save her first.

Literally conditioner and a straightener. Very very small sections, hair needs to have quite a bit of conditioner in it. Run the iron through FAST. If it needs more than one pass with the iron, make sure it's still nice and wet with conditioner. That's how I do it :) I never tried fabric softener. ^^'
