THE BEST WAY TO SHAMPOO
THE HAIR, WITH SOME FOR-
We do not have to look very far to
find heads of hair which are dull, lus-
terless, dry, stringy or frowsy in ap-
pearance. To meet a head of hair
which is glossy, silken and beautiful
in the manner in which it permits it-
self to be massed together is much
more unusual than it ought to be, and
is due in large part to carelessness or
ignorance in shampooing. Through-
out all time, as far back as history
reaches, the women of the race have
been proud of a fine head of hair, and
those who aspired to beauty spared
no trouble in caring for it properly
so far as they knew how.
The hair in health has a supply of
oil sufficient to keep the root properly
lubricated and the shaft of the hair
glossy; but sometimes the oil exudes
and minglés with the excretions from
the sweat glands and the dry particles
of the skin and forms what we de-
scribe as dandruff. Dandruff in itself
in the beginning is a mark of neglect,
but if allowed to continue may pro-
duce disorders of ‘the scalp.
Shampooing to keep the hair and
scalp clean, massage to increase cir-
culation, and such tonics and treat-
ments as may be necessary to encour-
age growth will do a great deal to
add to the attractiveness of any wom-
Hair, like individuals, differs. Some
hair is naturally coarse, others fine;
some straight, others curly; some one |
color and some another. Black hair |
derives its color from a goodly pro-

Washing the hair too often is in-
jurious. Once a month is sufficient
for most people. If the hair is very
dry, six weeks may be better yet, as
washing always removes some of the
natural oil. If one is engaged in very
dusty work and the hair is naturally
oily, it may be necessary to do it
every two weeks; but oftener than
this should not be permitted.
The egg shampoo followed by the
pomade is excellent for dry hair.
Hair which is moist and clinging in
its nature calls for special treatment.

bon than brown or light hair. Red
hair shows an abundance of iron, sul-
phur and a reddish oil. Brown hair
has a good deal of carbon in it with a
small amount of hydrogen, oxygen
and sulphur. Blonde hair is very rich
in oxygen and sulphur, and has very |
little hydrogen and carbon. White |
hair contains much phosphate of mag-
nesia, sulphate of alumina and a whit- |
ish oil. The hair of very old people |
is brittle and fine, with an abundance
of phosphate of lime.
When hair is bleached or singed it
gives forth an unpleasant odor. This
is due to a nitrogenous, animal sub- |
stance called keratin, of which hair
is largely composed. Hair dissolves
in strong alkalis and also in strong |
acids, and the prolonged use of hair |
dyes or dressings containing strong |
chemicals is sure to make the hair |
brittle and to spoil it in time. Any- |

The hair should not be either over-
brushed or overshampooed, the kind
of work one does determining how
often it needs to be washed and how
much brushing it requires. It is well
to remember that growth is more
rapid in warm weather than in cold,
and that very cold weather is unfa-
