Combing Won't Rid
Hair Of Dandruff
The only sure way to get rid of
dandruff is to dissolve it, . then you
destroy it entirely. To do this, get
about four ounces of ordinary liquid
arvon; apply.it at night when retir
ing; use enough to moisten , the scalp
and rub it in gently with the. finger
tips. - l ' 7-
Do this tonight, and y morning,
most if nit all of your dandruff will
be gone and three or four more ap
plications will completely dissolve
and entirely destroy every single sign
and trace of it, no matter how much
dandruff you may have.
You will find, too, that all itching
and digging of the scalp will stop-at
once, and your hair will be fluffy,
lustrous, glossy, siiky and soft, and
look and feed a hundred times better.
You can get liquid arvon at- any
drug store. It is inexpensive and
never fails to do the work. Adv.
