Blonde-Tone Shampoo

Description
The Color-Tone Shampoo line was produced by the Helena Rubinstein Company from about 1950 to 1970. These products were not dyes, but were made from a "special formula" advertised as safe for children. They came in five different tones: Blonde, Silver, Gold, Brunette, and Redhead.
Blond–tone was intended for use by borderline blondes, redheads, light browns, and blondes to highlight blonde in the hair. This bottle is dated from the years 1952 through 1957.
