OlTaa Simple Home Prescription Which
She Used With Most Bamaxkabl. Results.
I was greatly troubled with dandruff and
falling, hair. I tried many advertised hair
preparations and various prescriptions, but
they all signally . failed; many of them
made my hair greasy so It was impossible
to comb it or do It up properly. I think
that many of the things I tried were posi
tively Injurious and from my own exper
ience I cannot too strongly caution you
igalnat using preparations containing wood
slcohol and other poisonous substances. 1
believe they injure the root of the hair.
After my long list of failures I finally
found a simple prescription which I used
with most remarkable resluts and I can
unhesitatingly state that it Is beyond doubt
the most wonderful thing for the hair I
have ever seen. Many of my friends have
also used It and obtained wonderful effects
thereforra It not only Is a powerful stim
ulant to the growth of the hair and for re
storing gray hair to its natural color, but it
ti equally good for removing dandruff, giv
ing the hair life and brilliancy, etc., and
for the purpose of keeping the scalp in
first-class condition. It also makes the
hair much easier to comb and arrange In
nice form. I have a friend who used it
two months and during that time It not
only stopped the falling of his hair and
wonderfully Increased Its growth, but it
practically restored all of his gray hair to
Its natural color. You can obtain the In
gredients for making this wonderful prep
aration from almost any druggist. The
prescription is as follows:
Bay rum, 6 o. ; Menthol crystal, one-
halt drachm; Lavona de Composee, t o. ;
To-Kalon perfume, 1 to I teaspnonfula.
Apply night and morning; rub thor
oughly Into the scalp.
Go to your drugg'sts and ask for tha
eight-ounce bottle containing six ounces of ! tnl weuk
