Alkali Make Soap
Bad For Washing Hair
Most soapa and prepared shampoos
contain too much alkali, which Is very
injurious, aa It drlea the scalp and makes
the hair brittle.
The best thing to uae la Just plain mul
alfied cocoanut oil, for thla la pure and
entirely areaseless. It's very cheap, and
beats the most expensive soaps or any
thing else all to pieces. You can get
thla at any drug store, and a few ounces
will last the whole family for montha.
Simply moisten the hair with water
and rub it In, about a teaapoonful la all
that la required. It makes an abundance
of rich, creamy lather, cleanaea thor
oughly and rinses out easily. The hair
dries quickly and evenly, and is soft,
fresh looking, bright, fluffy, wavy and
easy to handle. Besides, It loosens and
