FAKE HAIR PREPARATIONS
Do Hair No Good, But Often Cause It
to Fall Out.
Many hair preparations are "fake"
because they are merely scalp irri
tants. They often cause a dryness,
making the hair brittle, and, finally,
lifeless. Dandruff is the cause of all
trouble with hair. It is a germ dis
ease. The germ makes cuticle scales
as it digs to the root of the hair, where
It destroy's the hair's vitality, causing
it to fall out. To cure dandruff, th.
germ must be killed. "Destroy tho
cause, you remove the effect." New
bro's Herpicide is the only hair prep
aration that kills the dandruff germ,
thereby leaving the hair to grow lux
uriantly. Sold by leading druggists.
