This dries the soalp, makes the hair brittle, and ruins It The best thing for steady us Is Just ordinary muleifted cocoanut oil (which is pure and greasel.ss), and Is better than the most expensive soap or any thing else you can use. One or two teaspoonfuls will cleanse the hair and scalp thoroughly. Simply moisten the hair with water and rub it it- It makes an abundance of rich, creamy lather. Which rinses out easily, removing every particle of dust dirt, dandruff and excessive oil. The hair dries oukklr and evenlr. nnrt it 1acv. the scalp soft aid the hair fine and silky, bright lustrous, fluffy and easy to marage.
