Nivea Creme On Your Dry Ends {Beauty Tip of the Day - Hair}


Vintage-Nivea-Tin-Ad.jpg
Everybody knows Nivea Creme, the legendary cream created in 1911 by Dr. Oskar Troplowitz in Hamburg, and almost everyone loves it since it sells at the rate of about 10,000 tons a year.

But what do people do with it? We all know the usual drill: face, neck, elbows, knees, feet...everywhere where the skin is dry and in need of a quick fix...

A vintage ad from the 1950s on the left: "against dry skin" (and the elements).



A less common way to use it, but which is adopted by people in the know especially the ones working in show business, is to use it in lieu of a hair serum or conditioner to hydrate your dry ends. Just take a little in your fingers and run it in the length of your hair while separating them, fluff them up, et voilà!

It's also a convenient way to travel with a hair conditioning cream and constitutes one more reason to call Nivea an all-purpose cream.

If you want to buy the original German formulation as opposed to the one sold in the US drugstores which is made in Mexico, you can find the "authentic German Nivea" at Small Flower for $6,95.
