DANDRUFF





Category: Beauty

Dandruff is the scaling off of dead cuticle. In excess, it
becomes a disease, forming so thick a scale as to kill the roots of the
hair and cause it to fall out. It is rightly called "itch dirt."
Cleanliness therefore helps a cure.

An old-fashioned recipe for dandruff calls for five ounces of bay rum, one
ounce of olive oil, one ounce tincture of cantharides. Dr. Leonard advises
free applications of sweet oil for the purpose of softening the scales,
then a washing with warm water and castile soap, or the "green soap" of
the pharmacy. If the disease is bad, or obstinate, apply a little oxide of
zinc ointment.
