a Shamp66 W6ttTH TftVlNdl
It is not necessary to shampoo
your hair so frequently if it M en
tirely and properly cleansed, each
time by the use of a really good
shampoo. The easiest to use and
quickest drying shampoo that we
can recommend to our readers is
one that brings out all the natural
beauty of the hair and may be en
joyed at very little expense, by dis
solving a teaspoonful of canthrox,
which can .be obtained from any
druggist's, in a up of hot water.
This makes a full cup of shampoo
liquid, enough so it is easy to apply
it to all the hair instead of just to
the top of, the Bead. This, when
rubbed into the scalp and onto every
strand of hair, chemically dissolves
all impurities. It is very soothing
and cooling in its action, as well as
beneficial to both scalp and hair.
After rinsing out the lather ao
created, you will find the scalp is
fresh, clean and free from dandruff,
while the hair dries quickly and
evenly, developing a bright luster
and a soft fluffinesa that makes it
seem very heavy.
