It causes the oil glands in the skin to become more active, making the hair soft and glossy, precisely as nature intended. It cleanses the scalp from dandruff and thus removes one of the great causes of baldness. It makes a better circu lation in the scalp and stops the hair from coming .out. II Prevents and II cures Baldness Ayer's Hair Vigor will surely make hair grow on bald heads, provided only there is any life remain ing in the hair bulbs. It restores color to gray or white hair. It does not do this in a moment, as will a hair dye; but in a short time the gray color of age gradually disap pears and the darker color of youth takes its place. Would you like a copy of our book on the Hair and Scalp? It is free. If yon do not obtain all the benefit* you expected from the use of the Vigor , write tne Doctor about It. 1 Address, DR. J. C.
