Of all the compounds which the chemist's art haa given to the world, for hundreds of years, for the purpose of restoring the hair to its natural growth and color,
not one has been perfect. Many of the hair dressings of the day are excellent, but the great mass of the stuf& sold for promoting the growth and
bringing back the original color are mere humbugs, while not a few are positively pernicious in their effects upon the scalp and the structure of the
hair. All hair dyes are well known to chemists as more or less poisonous, because the change in color is artificial, and does not depend upon a
restoration of the functions of the scalp to their natural health and vigor. The falling out of the hair, the accumulation of dandruff, and the pre
mature change in color, are all evidences of a diseased condition of the scalp and the glands which nourish the hair. To arrest these causes the
article used must possess medical as well as chemical virtues, and" the changes must begin undeb the scalp to be of permanent and lasting benefit.
Such an article has been discovered, and, like many other wonderful discoveries, it is found to consist of elements almost in their natural state.
Petrohjum oil is the article which is made to work such extraordinary results; but it is after the best article of oil has been chemically treated, and
completely deodorized, that it is in proper condition for the toilet. . A few facts connected with the history of Carboline will prove interesting to our
1st. It was in far-off Eussia that the effects of petroleum upon the hair were first noticed; a Government officer having noticed that a
partially bald-headed servant of his, when trimming the lamps, had a habit of wiping his oil-besmeared hands in his" scanty locks, and the re
sult was, in a few months, a much finer head of black, glossy hair than he ever had before. The oil was tried on horses and cattle that
had lost their hair from the cattle plague, and the results were as rapid as they were marvelous. The maues, and even the tails of horses,
which had fallen out, were completely restored in a few weeks. These experiments were heralded to the world, but the knowledge was practi
cally useless to the prematurely bald and gray, as no one in civilized society could tolerate the use of petroleum as a dressing for the hair.
But the skill of one of our chemists has overcome the difficulty, and by a process known only to himself he has, after very elaborate and
costly experiments, succeeded in deodorizing petroleum, which renders it susceptible of being handled as daintily as the famous eau de cologne.
The experiments with the deodorized liquid on the human hair were attended with the most astonishing results. A few applications, where the hair
was thin and ' falling out, gave remarkable tone and vigor to the scalp and the hair, and the natural color began to appear almost from the
first application. Every particle of dandruff disappears on the first or second dressing, and the liquid, so searching in its nature, seems to
penetrate to the roots at once, and set up a radical change from the start. It is well known that the most beautiful colors are made from
petroleum, and by some mysterious operation of nature the use of this article gradually imparts a beautiful light-brown color to the hair, which,
by continual use, deepens to a black. The color remains permanent for an indefinite length of time, and the change is so gradual that the
most intimate friends can scarcely detect its progress.
2d. But the best refined petroleum can not be used as a hair dressing, and the chemist's art had to be employed, so as to destroy the offensive odor, and
at the same time retain the subtle qualities which gave health to the scalp and natural color and vigor to the hair. This feat was accomplished in the
production of Carboline, which is deodorized Petroleum. 1
3d. Every one who has handled petroleum knows what a penetrating, active agent it is. It can not be retained in wooden casks at all, unless they
are coated with some impervious material, and it is not surprising that it goes right home to the roots of a person's hair when it can find its way through
the best oak staves ever made.
4th. The medical properties of petroleum have been well attested ever since the Seneca Indians, more than a century ago, used it for various diseases. It
doubtless possesses therapeutic virtues not yet developed, and its use in healing diseases of the scalp from which baldness and premature grayness of the hair
may result, lead to other and important discoveries.
5th. Chemistry has extracted from petroleum some of the most beautiful colors ever known, and while it may be impossible to determine whether Car
boline changes the color of the hair chemically, or through its healing effects upon the functions of the scalp, certain it is that by its use the natural hue of
the hair is gradually restored. The most plausible theory is that the change results from restoring the growth to its natural strength and vigor, by remov
ing dandruff, cleansing the scalp, and imparting renewed .activity to the follicles. Other facts might bo given in support of the claims of this wonderful
preparation, but the article is telling its own story in the hands of thousands who are using it with the most gratifying results.
It has been said that the man who causes two blades of grass to grow where only one grew before is a bublic benefactor. What, then, shall be
said of the man who causes a full and luxurious crop of hair to grow upon the barren and shining pates of the large army of baldheads who have
well nigh despaired of ever having a natural covering for their heads again? What place, in a word, shall be assigned to the discoverer of Carboline, a
deodorized extract of petroleum! Shall he not have a conspicuous niche in the Temple of Fame and stand first among the benefactors "of his race?
To impart new life and vigor to the dormant energies of a diseased scalp; to give strength and fullness to a weak and straggling growth of hair; to
bring back the natural color and gloss to bleached and faded locks, are no ordinary achievements since chemists and therapeutists have sought in vain
to accomplish them for centuries. All honor, then, to the new discoverer of the new hair restorative, Carboline and let one and all join in expressing
a higher appreciation of the uses aud possibilities of that wonderful product of petroleum, which contains the elements that work such mysterious and
gratifying changes. Let the prematurely gray and bald but give it a fair trial, and Carboline will be to them a household word, full of the most
