It is an accepted fact, a proven fact,
that dandruff is a germ disease, and it
is also a demonstrated fact that New
bra's Herpicide kills the dandruff
germ. Without dandruff, falling hair
would stop, and thin hair will thicken.
Herpicide not only kills the dandruff
germ, but it also makes hair as soft
a silk. It is the most delightful hair
dressing made. It cleanses the scalp
from dandruff and keeps it clean and
healthy. Itching and irritation a re in
