Whiter Hair with MSB

Countless letters and comments from people with white hair tell us that MSB is a wonderful addition to the rinse water when washing gray or white hair.  It eliminates yellowing and gives their hair that beautiful whiteness which cannot be obtained even by products made especially for that purpose.  It is absolutely safe, and because it is used by the drop, costs less than a penny per use! Use just a couple of drops in the rinse water.  No wonder hair salons are beginning to contact us!

Because we haven't tested MSB for whitening hair, we don't publish a specific formula.

Because we haven't tested MSB for whitening pet hair, we don't publish a specific formula. Customers that are pet-owners tell us the instructions above work on pets, too!
