1920s hairstyle report by Ann Boyd

Many women prefer to wash their own hair, especially when they are traveling or away on vacation. In shampooing the hair, it is important to remember that hair should not be washed too often. Once every two weeks is the best practice to adopt. Many women also neglect regular brushing because it destroys an artificial wave. However, there are many clever devices for waving the hair at home, which allows a girl to brush her hair every night.

1. Separate an egg carefully in a small, deep bowl.

2. Beat the white of the egg until it is firm.

3. Rub the stiffly beaten white of egg into the hair, so that the entire scalp and all the ends are covered with the mixture. two eggs are necessary if the hair is long and thick.

4.Let the egg white dry on the hair. this should require five minutes, but do not disturb or brush out until the mixture is thoroughly dry.
