    It looks like too that some of the ladies hair was rather uneven and I bet it was really a chore to wash and dry and then to have to brush out..

    The group of seven women are sisters. They were famous in their day and sold a special hair grow soap. Honestly, if I ever found an unused bar of this soap, I would use it to see if it really works- wouldn’t you?

    The Bible says that hair is a woman’s Crowning Glory – these women’s hair certainly is!
