Cocoanut Oil Makes
A Splendid Shampoo
If you want to keep your hair tn
good condition, be careful what you
wash it with.
Most soaps and prepared . sham
poos contain too much alkali. This

cocoanut oil shampoo (which is pure
and entirely preaseless). is 1 much
better than anything else you Can
use for shampooing, as this can't
possibly injure the hair. .
Simply put two or three. teaspopn
fuls of Mulsified in a cup or glass
with a little warm wat?r. then mois
ten your hair with water and .rub it
in. It will make an abundance of
rich, creamy lather, and 'Cleanse Uie
