as an update to my contributions to this review, I'd like to add some comments about the hair on Julie.
My Julie has been turned into a modern girl from another country with a different name, so I wasn't upset to see this personally, but thought I should add this for those who wish to keep Julie as a 1970's girl.
I love to mess with doll hair and style it in many ways, and Chantal (f.k.a. Julie) seemed perfect for this since her hair arrives poker straight. Well, after a night of braiding her hair and rebraiding it and after styling it this past week, I've begun to notice that the ends of her hair are starting to curl, they are no longer perfectly 1970's straight. Chantal's hair is beginning to look more like Juanita's (my JLY#25's) hair on the ends.
I haven't noticed any damage to the shine or to the texture, just that it is starting to curl on the ends.
