Simple and Beautiful Hair

Remember the movies that picture the female stars sitting in front of a mirrored vanity brushing her hair before going to bed? One reason this piece of furniture was of value was that if offered a relaxing place for women to care for their beauty, one of being their hair, before retiring for the evening.

Gaylord Hauser recommends, “It is actually not necessary to wash your hair too often. (Shampoos can strip the natural oils that make the hair lustrous and healthy). Brushing your hair and scalp 50 to 100 strokes each night keeps the hair clean and you will have given a preparation (that of a natural massage from a brush with natural bristles) to your scalp with natural oils and lanolin. However, if you prefer to wash your hair more frequent;  before shampooing, give your scalp this simple beauty treatment. Take a tablespoon of your nice fresh vegetable oil, the same kind you use in your food, and massage it into your scalp. Wring out a towel in very hot water, wrap it around your head, and leave it on for five minutes. Then wash with an oil-lanolin base shampoo. Lather and rinse once or twice, depending on how much hair you have or to your liking.”
