Ayor’s if air Vigor, For restoring Gray Hair to its natural Vitality and Color. original color , with th s and freshness of youth. Thin hair is thickened, falling hair checked, and baldness often, though not always, cured by its use. Nothing can "o fitore the hair where tho follicles are destroyed, or the glands atrophied ami decayed. But such as remain can be saved for usefulness by this application. Instead of fouling tho hair with a pasty' sediment, it will keep it clean and vigorous. Its occasional use will prevent tho hair from turning gray or falling off, and consequently prevent baldness. Free from those deleterious sub stances which make some prepara tions dangerous and injurious to the hair, the Vigor can only benefit but not harm it. If wanted merely for a HAIR DRESSING, nothing else can bo found so desir able. Containing neither oil nor dye, it does not soil white cam brie, and yet lasts long on the hair, giving it a rich glossy lustre and a grateful perfume. rlt R I'A li F. I) }IY Dr. J. C.
