The only way to get rid of digust j
ing, untidy dandruff is to correct its;
cause. Shampooing merely cleanses
the scalp for a few days, then the
scales form again as thick as ever.
To destroy the dandruff germ and
get rid of the dandruff for good, part
the hair and apply a little of the genuine
Parisian Sage dlreotly on bare
scalp and rub it in until absorbed. You t
- ' np I
will surely ue amazeu ai me i couh ui j
even one application, for you hair and ;
scalp will look and feel 100 per cent, i
better. Only a few days' massage with |
Parisian Sage should be needed to de-1
stroy the germs that cause dandruff to i
form. The scalp becomes healthy, the
hair will grow better, show more life
and vitality and you should no longer
be troubled by dandruff. Faded, dull or
lifeless hair is quickly restored to
beauty by this simple process. Parisian
Sage can be obtained from Mt. City
Drug Co., and druggists everywhere.
It is not expensive.
