Comments

When I was a little girl in the 1950s my mother would wash my hair in the kitchen sink. I climbed up on the counter and lay down on my back on the drainboard and hung my head over the side of the sink. We used Luster Cream. it had an unusual consistency not creamy, but it glistened. I don't know what was in it but it smelled lovely.
