The & W. Bost Co Clmlana, O. Cocoanut Oil Fine For Washing Hair If you want to keep your hair good condition, be careful what wash it with. Most soaps and prepared shampoo contain too much alkali. This driei the scalp, makes the hair brittle, and L very harmful. Just plain mulsified cocoanut oil (which is pure and n tirely greaseless), is much -etter than the most' expensive soap or anything else you can use for shampooing, at this can't possibly injure the hair. Simply moisten your hair with wa ter and rub it in. One or two tea spoonfuls will make an abundance of rich, creamy lather, and cleanses thf hair and scalp thoroughly. The lather rinses out easily, and remove ever particle of dust, dirt, dandruff and excessive oil. The hair dries quickly and evenly, and it leaves it fine and silky, bright, fluffy and easy to man age- : You can get mulsified cocoanut ol at most any drug store. It is verj cheap, and a few ounces is enouga to last everyone in the family for; months. Advertisement.
