FACE TO FACE
Any system of personal cleanliness is incomplete
that does not include a sanitary hair-dressing
Don't neglect the hair. Its proper care is far from bein the least
part of the toilet. There is no portion of the person more liable to ac
cumulation of germs and dirt, yet the hair is most frequently neglected.
People consider themselves models of bodily neatness when they
bathe regularly, clean their teeth diligently, devote hours to manicur
ing and industriously conserving their complexions while they seldom
or never pay any attention to the condition of the hair and scalp. Be
sides being open to the charge of uncleanhness, these people are still
more rrfortunate because by their carelessness they are really aiding
time in the destruction of their beauty and youthful appearance.
