The Store That Sells Wooltex
Abarmlesa remedy, made from com
mon garden sage, quickly restores gray
hair to natural color. The care of the
hair, to prevent it from losing its color
and lustre, is just as important as to
ear xor teeta to keep tbem from dis
coloring. Why spend money for cos
metics and creams to improve the com
plexion, and yet neglect yoor hair, when
pay hair is even more conspicuous and
suggestive of age than wrinkles or a
poor complexion? Of the two, it is
tasier to preserve the natural color and
fteauty of the hair than it is to have
l good complexion.
All that is necessary is the occasional
e of Wyetb'a Sage and Sulphur Hair
Remedy, a preparation of common gar
Sen Sage and Sulphur, combined with
ther valuable remedies for dry, harsh,
faded hair, dandruff, itching scalp ana
falling hair. After a few applications
f this simple, harmless remedy, yonr
3 sir will gradually be restored to its
oatural color, in a abort time the dan
iniflf will be removed, and vour hair
srill no longer come out out will start to
prow as Nature intended it should.
Don't neglect your hair, for it goes
further than anything else to make or
mar your good looks. You can buy
this remedy at any drug store for
afty cent a bottle, and your drug
Cist will give your money back if you
ire not satisfied after using. Pur
chase a bottle today. You will rover
regret it when you realize the dilfcr
