LONG AND ABUNDANT
SOFT SILK-LIKE TRESSES
When Proper Care and Attention Is
Given to the Hair It Grows
Inattention is largely responsible
for dull, brittle or stringy hair, and
wbile shampooing is essential, often
times an energiser should be used to
stimulate healthy action.
Two or three minutes' massaging
the scalp and hair roots before retir
ing at night with a simple tonic,
made by dissolving an ounce of beta
quinol is a half-pint of alcohol, to
which is then added the same amount
of water keeps the scalp and hair
roots in a healthy state and induces
a thick growth of long silk-like hair
rich in color and of a soft fluffiness.
Any druggist can supply beta-qul-nol
at little cost.
