Train Your Hair as
an Actress Does
No class of people devotes as much
time to beauty as do actresses, and
naturally no class must be more care
ful to retain' and develop their
charms. Inquiry among them de
velops the information that in hair
care they find it dangerous to sham
poo with any makeshift hair cleanser.
Instead they have studied to find the
finest preparation made for shampoo
ing and bringing out the beauty of
the hair. The majority of them say
that to enjoy the best hair wash and
scalp stimulator that is known, get a
package of canthrox from your drug
gist; dissolve a teaspoonful in a cup
ot not water ana your shampoo is
ready. It costs less than three cents
for this amount. After its use the
hair dries rapidly, with uniform color.
Dandruff, excess oil and dirt are dis
solved and entirely disappear. Your
hair will be so t luf f y that it will look
much heavier than it is. Its lustre
and softness will also delight you,
while the stimulated scalp gains the
health which insures hair growth.
