Anyone older than 42 is out of luck, and anyone younger than two – is lucky. That’s the way this powdered hair dye works! You must be between those ages. Because by the time you’re two, well – you’d better start thinking about how your hair’s darkening. That’s no good! That would be “old-looking.” Of course, so’s a toddler with a Jean Harlow peroxide job, but no matter…
So here’s Blondex, a “fragrant powder” (oh goody, it doesn’t stink!). Apparently those of us whose blonde hair darkened as they got older have a “dingy, dust-laden film” that Blondex will remove. This is akin to the men’s Grecian-Formula type things that “restore your natural color” or “comb away grey.” It isn’t your true destiny to have dark blonde or light brown hair! You must lighten and brighten. Starting almost as soon as you have a full head of hair!
The two year old looks skeptical. She’s the brains of the operation. She is also thinking that the 12 year old’s bow is mighty silly. She may have to grab it.
The twelve year old has Blondexing for ten years, I guess. The frozen happy-face is a just a side effect. As is a desire to be the new 1940s model Shirley Temple.
The elderly-looking 22 year old is the happiest one of the bunch. She loves that Blondex all right. Her hair is unwaveringly blonde and can withstand a hurricane. That’s happiness all right.
Finally, the 42 year old is – well, kind of thinking things over. She hasn’t got much time left to be happy and blonde. Enjoy it while you can, once you hit 43 it’ll be all over.
