FOH RESTORING GRAY HAIR TO ITS
NATURAL VITALITY AND COLOR.
It is a most agreeable dressing, which
rs at once harmless and effectual, for pre
serving the hair. It restores, with the
gloss and freshness of youth, faded or gray,
light, and red hair, to a rich brown, or deep
black, as may be desired. By its use thin
hair is thickened, and baldness often
though not always cured. It checks falling
of the hair immediately, and causes a new
growth in all cases where the glands are
not decayed; while to brashy, weak, or
otherwise diseased hair, it imparts Titality
and strength, and renders it pliable.
The Yiook cleanses the scalp, cures and
p. events the formation of dandruff; and,
l'y its cooling, stimulating, and soothing
properties, it heals most if not all of tho
humors and diseases peculiar to the scalp,
keeping it cool, clean, and soft, under
which conditions diseases of the scalp and
Lair are impossible.
As a Dressing for Ladies' Hair,
The Vicon is incomparable. It is color
less, contains neither oil nor dye, and will
not soil white cambric. It imparts an
agreeable and lasting perfume, and as an
article for the toilet It is economical and
unsurpassed hx Us excellence.
