I use a very small gauge with only one barb needle to put only one or two hairs in each hole.
This process is called micro rooting and needs a lot of time..
All my dolls are rooted wit high quality Kid Mohair from Slumberland or QuinnOBrien.
After the rooting I put the sealer all over the inside of the doll head to help hold the hair in place for gentle brushing and washing.
