Hair Hoppers of Antiquity, No. 3

Meet Ptolemy Jherimanicus.  He was a scribe in the Temple of Isis and a part-time cosmetologist.  It's a little-known fact that that same chemicals that produced his luxurious curls were used in the process of mummification.  Which explains a lot.


  1. I had no idea that Margaret Keane had traced Blythe's ancestry all the way back to Classical Antiquity.

  2. i was his assistant & used to wrap THAT perm.
    those tiny stone rods were a nightmare!

    and believe me,
    you don't want to know
    what we neutralized it with.
