Sticky hair

Post by star » Sun Apr 19, 2015 2:53 am

So it's been a while since I've posed a few of my girls but they've been sitting in a temperature controlled dry area not in the sun so I had assumed they were fine however I went to move some of the girls and noticed Tigris's hair was a bit sticky to the touch and Valona's pony tails will not come out nor will they move at all(they no longer rotate). Does anyone have any advice on how to fix this? there are no other problems with any of my other shinki and it's only issues with the hair on Tigris and Valona. Any ideas?

I realize it's been a while since I was last here and I have a list of folks who dislike me but for the good of my girls, I'd love some advice

Warm dish soap and water solution soak for the sticky parts, try and dip valona's hair pieces in some hot water for a few seconds, pull them out, and then see if they'll come out.

You're seeing a plasticizer leak which will happen with any number of the older shinkis because of the soft plastic material that was used. Really no way around it but to wash it when it gets sticky.

thank you :D

and thank goodness it was that simple, I was worried I needed to care for my girls better, but I wasn't sure how since they're already dusted frequently and kept in a cool environment out of the sun lol

glad it's that simple XD I can just use the same procedure I use with my old paintbrushes then lol

Thank you again :D this should help me a lot, I will also check if any other parts in the boxes need this treatment then since most of my girls are unarmored(due to space lol)
