How Tfcey Must Be'VentiU'ted and '
' How Treated to Make Them
Light, Gbssy and ja Proper
Condition - to Curl.
y Marian Martlnean.
The texture of the hair In midsummer'
resembles little that of the 'hair in -winter.
One Is light and Fprlney; tho other apt
to be damp and clinging. Specially Is this '
'true at the seashore, or In the country.
. where there are mists and the air is heavy.
The woman who would be pretty In sum
mer must watch her hair "and take care
of It.
If eho be among' the blest, those who have
curly hair, even then she must show some
attention to It. But.lf her Socks be straight,
then Indeed is her task, doubled.
It is said that, if woman could be given
her most desired gift, she would' ask for
tho gift ef naturally curly hair.
There is a theory that the hair which
curls naturally is shaped differently from
straight hair and that each separate .hair Id
three-cornered. Instead of being round. Be
that as it may. it Is an undisputed fact that
while the hair -of a favored few cur's of Its
own, accord, the hair of the multitude
stays straight of its own accord. And.
what is more, cannot be persuaded to stay
curled for any length of time.
Curling fluids are good and there are a
great many of them. But unless you go
back of the curling fluid and treat the hair
your work will be for naught.
Cutting the Hair Said to
Tax Its Vitality.
A word about cuttlnr the hair, right at
the beginning.
The idea that hair roust be cut often in
order to strengthen It. is about exploded.
Men have their .hair cut constantly and
none grow bald as, quickly as they. Wo
men who seldom. have the hair cut do not
suffer from this affliction, and the bald
headed woman is a rare sight.
The up-to-date theory is that It is in
jurious to cut the hair. These later theo
rists declare that cutting tho hair' takes its
vitality. They say that the life escapes
from the mutilated ends of the. hair and
that the root exerts itself to make up for
the shorn end. In fact, to regrow. This
constant strain upon the root causes it to
become weak and; the hair to die.
This would accojint for the fact ths.t men
grow bald. The cutting, the brushing, the
shampoo and the constant irritation of the
scalp, all tend to .kill the roots of th hair
and cause baldness. ,
The wearing of the hat, to "which is laid
so much blame, U not Jiowthcught Inju
rious. The hat merely warms the head and
the hair grows better in warmth than in
cold. A woman's head is continually heated,
for ib wears a great cell upon it and.
often. . pompadour, and vei", chignon,
v.t ih 1 nAt hold.
Is it not mors rearonabl to laytt Maine J
to the continual halr-cuttlne
The woman who wnnts to look swell in
midsummer must take the best of care of
the hair. She mun have it washei an J
dried and she must have It ventilated.
Ono of. the disagreeable features, of fcflsi
bathing is the difficulty "In drying the hair
afterwards, and its tendency to f mell mutt?
If it Is not dried. Unless the hair i.i wa-hl
in ,sweet. water and dried carefully it can
not bo lustrous, positively hot.
Rinse 'With Hot "Water and
Shake Out Thoroughly.
A certain hairdresser said: "Let me dry
your. hair and I do not care who washes
It" I r - . .
Her "drylngt'-'conslsted of a rinsing with
hot water and then of ti thorough -shaking
out. With patient hands she lifted and
phook the hair until It was well dried-;
dried through and through dried .83 tta:
each hair lay smooth and reparajc- with
not a suggestion of cllnginess. ....
When the hair is dried it must be vuitj
lated. and this is done by lifting it from.,
the head and shaking it In the air.
Women who wear the hair always one
way are those whose heads nrcd vcnt'li
tlne roost. The hair pins come always In thj
same pot. and "the coll Is always In "th
same place, and the poor scalp is always
Irritated by tho same treatment, day aftir
da5". . . . .
For the summer a woman cannot do bet
ter than to let her hair rest upon her nee
one day. In the low style, of hairdre3$ln.
and to raise It next day. to make a kno.
on top of the head.
There are womtn who cannot change the
stylo of halrdressing without suffering from
a headache. The scalp will bo very ssre. on
making the change. This means that th
hair is being dressed too lightly, and that
the roots are being badly treated. In n short
time dandruff will -result and thtn baldness.
Shampoolns oncea-week Is net too often
In summer. Then comes 'he thorough .ry
lng. Then follows the lifting and the ven
tilating, and Anally. ;but far front tta least,
comes the waving.
There Is a French.hair dresser who waves
hair in such 'a manner that Jt will fcbsolutely
stay" In. He. uses attew drops cf oil of rose
cut with glycerine and rcse water. With
this he moistens the hair. nnd. letting it
partially dry. waves t1 tightly. This will
really stay in a whoio. evening or a whole
day, 'which .is saying- a great deal these
times of perspiration and roisti.
SingeingTakes Alway
Clipped, 'Broken ''Look.
Cutting the hair at the roots has been
touched upon as aipracUca that may pos
sibly injure the hair.-
Shaving the head Is a, still more per
nicious practice. It 'is tho custom to-shave
the head after an .illness; but tho Berlin
physicians, experts,, tay that it puts Joo
great a drain upon J the-already weakened
roots and that it U,one(caui9 of poor hair,
after a fever.
Slngeinr thehahyon the other hand, is
open to no such ' SbJeeUon. The hair is
taken up. in little ,fetrands and rolled. A
lighted casdU Is then rapidly passed along
under the strands.'and the loose ends are
lnged. ThiVtaJfcea away that clipped,
