Cocoanut Oil Fine
For Washing Hair
If you want to keep your hair

wash it with.
Most soaps and prepared shampoo
contain too much alkali. This driei

L very harmful. Just plain mulsified
cocoanut oil (which is pure and n
tirely greaseless), is much -etter than
the most' expensive soap or anything
else you can use for shampooing, at
this can't possibly injure the hair.
Simply moisten your hair with wa
ter and rub it in. One or two tea
spoonfuls will make an abundance of
rich, creamy lather, and cleanses thf
hair and scalp thoroughly. The lather
rinses out easily, and remove ever

excessive oil. The hair dries quickly
and evenly, and it leaves it fine and
silky, bright, fluffy and easy to man
