HAIR BURNING

AFTER BRUSHING YOUR HAIR, SOME STRANDS WILL BE LEFT IN YOUR
BRUSH. TAKE THESE HAIRS, AND THROW THEM IN THE FIRE. BY DOING
THIS YOUR HAIR SHALL DOUBLE BECAUSE OF THE FIRE, AND LOSS OF
HAIR WILL BE PREVENTED.

Submitter comment: THIS PROCEDURE SEEMS TO CORRESPOND TO THE PREVIOUS ONE. THIS GIRL
DOESN'T FOLLOW THIS PROCEDURE, BUT HER MOTHER TAKES HAIR FROM HER
BRUSH AND BURNS IT FOR HER.
