St.Joseph’s Puajl ASPIRIN BEAUTIFYING TRESSES FOR "INDOOR”MONTHS Fall and Winter Bring Hair Problems Calling for Drastic Treatment, Says Miss Huddleston, Telling How to Overcome Them. * * ' By JOSEPHINE HUDDLESTON. RIGHT at this time, more than at any other daring the entire year, the scalp is apt to show slight disturbances which, if given the proper attention, will only be temporary. If allowed to go unattended, however, severe eases of dandruff, falling hair, drabness and dryness soon develop into real beauty prob lems. Most of ns aren’t quite so industrious in the care of our hair during the Summer months as we are at other times. Then, too, bathing and all out-of-doors sports take a certain amount of vitality from the hair unless precautions have been taken to keep the hot sun from burning and drying it. Therefore, I suggest that each one of you guard your scalp from even the faintest trace of dandruff; examine the texture of your hair to see if it has coarsened or faded in color, and if it still retains the glossy sheen that is so neces sary to healthy hair. All or any one of these conditions can be remedied within a surprisingly short time if you are systematic in your treatment. • .JQSQWfc HMD I Uh, A morning and night brushing is essential at this particular season because the hair thrives upon excess circula tion. And just now, because of its exposure during the Summer, the hair is in need of stimulation by local treatment, massage and . brushing. « I'm not going to bore you by re peating at this time the rules and suggestions for massage and brush ; ing. They already have been print ed in this column so often that all of you must know them by heart. But 1 do urge you to make use of those suggestions NOW, even though | you have never before felt their i need. ; If you find a trace of dandruff on ‘ your scalp remember that these tiny scales stop up the pores and prevent the ducts from functioning properly. Therefore, you will want to clear the scalp as soon as possible. Kqual parts ■of mange cure and olive oil are splen did for this The mange cure ia the same as that used for curing mange, and your local druggist will be able 'to supply you without difficulty. To completely cover the scalp you ■will need about one-half ounce of olive oil and one-half ounce of mange cure. Add the two together and heat them Just enough to V»k® ott the chill. If too hot they are apt to burn the pcalp. ____ ,r. After thoroughly massaging the scalp and brushing the hair saturate a pad of cotton with the mange cure and olive oil and apply it to the scalp, covering It entirely. Let this remain on for half an hour and then shampoo the h lr thoroughly, using a medicated soap instead of your usual shampoo. Be sure to cut the soap Into small pieces before adding It to one pint of cold water. Let this stand over a low fire until the soap has melted, re move and strain, then when the liquid Jellies, use it as you would any shampoo This simple treatment should be repeated once each week for at least one month. Continue your morning and nightly brushing and massage. You will find that new life and vital ity come into the hair, that the dandruff disappears, that ita faded color is replaced t a natural tone and that a lovely sheen makes the hair spjrklejrith JIghts. and beauty chapter Mrs. Eunice Ross was re ported in waiting.
