Soap should be used very care
fully, if you want to keep your hair
looking its best. Most soaps and p?e
pared shampoos contain too much
alkali. This dries the scalp, makes
the hair brittle, and ruins it.
The best thing for steady use is I
just ordinary mulsified cocoanut oil
(which is pure and greaseless), and
is better than the most expensive
soap or anything else you can use.
One or two teasponfuls will
cleanse the hair and scalp thor
oughly. Simply moisten the hair
with water and rub it in. It makes
an abundance of rich, creamy lath
er, which rinses out easily, removing
every particle of dust, dirt, dan
druff and excessive oil. The hair
dries quickly and evenly, and it
leaves the scalp soft, and the hair
fine and silky, bright, lustrous,
fluffy and easy to manage.
You can get mulsified cocoanut

cheap, and a few ounces will sup
