FADING, TURNING GRAY, FALLING ?
APPLY A LITTLE SAGE TEA
It's Grandmother's Recipe for
Dandruff and Restoring
Color to Hair,
Almost everyone knows that Sa?o Ten
and Sulphur, properly compounded,
brings back the natural color and lustre
to the hair when faded, streaked or giay;
also cures dandruff. Itching scalp .n1
stops falling; hair. Tears ago the only
way to get this mixture was to make It
at home, which Is mussy and trouble
some. Nowadays skilled chemists do this bet
ter than ourselves. By asking at any
drug store for the ready. to-ue product
called "Wyeth'a Sago and Suluhur
Hair Remedy" you will get a large oot
tie for about 50 cents. Some druggists
make their own but It's usually tot
sticky, so insist upon getting "Wyeth's"
which can be depended upon to restore
natural color and beauty to the hair and
Is the best remedy for dandruff, dry,
feverish, Itchy scalp and to stop falling
Folks like "Wyeth's Sage and Sulphur
because no one can positively tell that
you darkened your hair, as It ooes It so
naturally and evenly, says a well known
down town druggist. You dampen a
sponge or soft brush and draw It through
your hair, taking one small strand at n
time. This requires but a few moment,
by morning the gray hair disappears and
after another application or two Is re
stored to Its natural color and looks even
more beautiful and glossy than ever.
