~ The Cornhill Magazine, January 1922
“Don’t trifle with new and untried remedies, but use the preparation which has stood the Test of Time - 120 Years. Use it for your own and your children’s hair and you will find it nourishes, enriches, and restores it more effectually than any other preparation.”
Interesting note: have you ever wondered why old pictures show the chairs and sofas covered in doilies? No? OK, it’s just me….anyway the reason is that Macassar Oil and similar hair “treatments” were greasy and would stain the furniture. It was easier to wash a doily covered in hair oil then it was to get the stain out of the back of the chair, so ladies began covering everything with doilies. Now you know. Don’t you feel better? I know I do.
