To Make Your Hair
Soft, Bright and Fluffy
"Th. reason many women find It dif
ficult to arrange the coiffure pleasingly
Is because of the toe -free use of wet
shampoos, which make hair dull, brittle
"One of the most pleasing tilings
with which to cleanse tho scalp of im
purities and keep the hair clean, fluffy
and eilky, Is 4 ounces of cither orris
root or corn meal and 4 ounces of
therox. Mix together and sprlnklo a
tablespoonful on the fcalp, then brush
thoroughly through the hair. This rids
the hair and scalp of dust and dandruff,
and a few times using tones the scalp
and hair roots, causing the hair to grow
noft, brilliant and easy to manage."
