The use of Sage and Sulphur for
restoring faded, grayk hair . to its I
natural color dates back to grand
mother 8 time. She used it to keep
her hair beautifully dark, glossy and
attactive. Whenever her hair took
on that dull, faded W streaked ap
pearance, this , simple mixture was
applied, with wonderful effect.
But brewing at home is mussy and
out of date. Nowadays, by asking
at any drug store for a bottle of
Wyeth s Sage and Sulphur Com
pound, vou will get this famous
old preparation, improved by the ad-
ition of other ingredients, which
can be depended upon to restore
natural color and beauty to the hair.
A' well known downtown druggist
says it darkens the hair so naturally
and evenly that nobody 'can, tell, it
has been applied You simply damp
en a sponge fcr. Soft brush with it
and draw thil through your hair,
taking ' tone strand at a time. By
morning ;the gray hair disappears,
and after 'another application or two
it becomes beautifully dark and
glossy. , .
