1920's Hair Product Ads

I would love to know what on earth was in this stuff!

I'm not sure I'd actually want my hair to look like that!

I've been thinking of doing something to my hair. I am even considering dying it, which I haven't done in years. Unfortunately, I've developed an allergy to most traditional dyes so it would need to be a natural dye. I've read you can dye your hair with walnut husks or sage so I might try that. Anyone have experience dying with henna or other natural dyes? 


  1. those adds are really beautiful. I died my hair with henna in the 90s I felt it really made the red to purple but that was long ago and the products may have improved

    1. I'm both intrigued and scared to use henna. I like the idea of it, but I'm worried I might end up with some really weird colour (especially since I would be using a natural henna).

  2. Interesting ads with lovely illustrations. I am a bit scared of the result of the permanent wave though!
