HAIR AND SCALP TREATMENT

MY AUNT TOLD ME HOW TO FIX UP TROUBLE WITH
YOUR HAIR.
AT SPRINGTIME, BEFORE THE LEAVES COME OUT,
YOU FIND A NICE BIRK (BIRCH) TREE.
YOU CUT A LITTLE HOLE INTO THE BIRK TREE
AND PUT A BOTTLE TIGHT INTO THAT HOLE.
NEXT DAY GO BACK AND GET THOSE JUICES.
RUB THAT JUICE INTO YOUR HEAD AND HAIR
AND THEY WILL GET HEALTHY.
