THE hair cut.
Which made it something of an ordeal.
Then to further torment us the Toni home permanent
So we got short curly hair!
and a half of sitting
getting end papers
and curlers put in,
saturated with perm,
timed, rinsed, and conditioned.
and we wanted our hair
to be straight.
Big curlers or ironing
were the solution.
Yes, we laid our heads on the ironing board and ironed away! Or we used orange juice cans, or with really long hair even a coffee can! as a roller!
I still have not recovered from the humiliation of
The Old Farmer's laughter and attempt
to get a picture of me.
It was good for everything! (Probably hair too)
Then Dr. Spock came along and said vacinations were better, toss the cod liver oil.
good for the heart, etc. So the old ways are redeemed.
Then it was in a spoon and tasted yechtttt, now we have capsules.
