|Popular Mechanics; January 1924|
Hair sanitation was an issue in the 1920s just as much as it is today. I can't tell you how much I cringe at the thought of sharing my hairbrush with a family member - let alone the brushes at the salon. At school, they seemed to address the problem, on picture day at least, by giving everyone their own little comb when I was kid in the 1980s. Do give out combs on picture day anymore I wonder? I have to say that a paper comb would never do with my hair. As thick as it is, I can barely get a regular comb to go through my hair let alone a paper one. I just envision paper shreds all through my hair.
