Proper hair care means only keeping
the scalp and hair perfectly clean by
use of some preparation made for
shampooing, not for general cleans
ing. Von can enjoy the best that is
known for about three cents a sham
poo by getting a package of Canthrox
from your druggist. Dissolve a tea
spoonful in a cup of hot water and
your shampoo is ready. After its
use the hair dries rapidly with uni
form color. Dandruff, excess oil ami
dirt are dissolved and entirely disap
pear. Your hair will be so fluffy
that it will look much heavier than
it is. Its luster and softness will
also delight you, while the stimulated
scalp gains the health which insures
hair growth.—Adv.
