You want beautiful hair? Just add chemicals!

So, I have a thing for old magazines, I just love them. And judging by the number I have they love me too.

Old mags are a proper glimpse into the past. Even funnier than the fiction (I mean who wouldn’t be enthralled by “The House of Hate” in 6 episodes?) are the advertisements.

Here are a couple I dug out of a 1960s New Idea magazine. I especially like how the girl gets nice curls then gets to suck-face with a disembodied guy’s head. Go girls! Those guys don’t stand a chance.

Ad for hair curling chemicals

Even better is the one about adding curls to baby’s hair.  Because that’s what you want to do… soak your little darling’s head in chemicals. What could go wrong? It’s great for cradle cap too apparently. Removing a layer of skin works great for that. Where was this stuff when my kids were little?! On the banned list probably.

About gillianloves

I decided there was not enough laughing in my life so I set to and started to design greeting cards in addition to my other design work. I'm happy to make people smile and to show that giving something really good takes as little effort as sending something pretty ordinary. I fully believe that if you can laugh about it someday you may as well laugh about it today. And also that we are just about as happy as we try to be. But you should know, Pollyanna I'm not. Even I might want to slap her after a day or so.
