To the Kditor letter eon test
Kay of Sunshine,
Sukhoi "Oar* of Hwlthy Hair"
At,certain times of the year, as
most everyone has noticed, anim
als “shed their hair". The hair
drops out by the handful, and the
animal's coat is greatly thinned.
At the same time that the old
hair falls out the new hair comes
in, and soon the animal's coat is
as thick as ever,
l human beings there is, in
stead of a seasonal ahedding of the
hair, a constant falling, and a
new growth replacing the loss al
though at certain seasons this
process may he more active than
at other seasons.
This natural falling comes a
bout because the hair loosens from
its papilla, and mounts, or it is
forced into the middle region of
the follicle, from which preear
ions post of attachment, it is
brushed or combed out or it mere
ly drops off.
If the rate of replacement can
keep pace with the rate of loss,
the individual will naturally have
a tine crop of hair, as long as he
has any use for hair.
Hut to maintain this condition
is a problem. Often it is an on
solvable one, This is especially
true if there is a hereditary tend
ency towards baldness, or toward
premature loss of hair.
I. would therefore, urge upon
mothers the 'necessity of giving
careful attention to the condition
of the sealp in their children, so
t at proper exercise, and nutri
t mu of the hair follicle is inter
ed with, or unfavorably influene
ed from any cause.
This early attentiiou to the
tic ds of the scalp will he what l
might call | trophy lactic or proven
live, not only to keep the sealp
in a healthy condition, hut also to
prevent the development of any
parasitic trouble that might, lat
er o*i, cause the loss of hair.
Hair of children, should he
washed, combed, brushed and
cleaned. Hair of w omen and men
should he combed, brushed and j
v ashed, scalp messaged, and
lo maintain the scalp in the
b'st condition of cleanliness, it *\
mo necessary to wash or shampoo
the hair with too great a degree
Ire*pie*»ey. It is net advisable j
foi women to wash the hair often
v than oner every week, or ten
days and for men not more than
iwo or three times weekly.
Yours very truly,
