USE OF POMADES





Category: Beauty

Hair that is dry and brittle really requires some
oleaginous preparation, used in moderation. Yellow vaselin is good. Part
the hair and rub it into the scalp with the tips of the fingers. A
sufficient amount will find its way to the hair itself to relieve the
dryness. Cocoanut oil is also good. Never apply anything of this kind to
the hair itself, which is simply made greasy. The benefit should be to the
roots. The application of vaselin may be made a couple of days before the
monthly washing, or if the hair is very dry, may follow it. Remember not
to overdo the matter. It does not follow that because a little is good,
more is better.

A specialist on the hair who makes biennial trips abroad to advise himself
as to the most recent methods and treatment, in a moment of confidence
admitted to a customer that after all pure cold water was as good a hair
tonic as he knew of. "Do not wet the hair." he said. "Dip the tips of your
fingers in cold water and rub the scalp, wetting it and at the same time
massaging it. Do this as faithfully as you would apply a tonic, and in all
but certain exceptional cases it will be as beneficial.'
