Save your Hair! Get a small bottle
of Danderine right now-Also
stops itching scalp.
Thin, brittle, colorles and scraggy
hair is mute evidence of a neglected
scalp; of dandruff-that awful scurf.
There is nothing so destructive to
lthe hair as dandruff. It robs the hail
of its lustre, its strength and its very
life; eventually producing a feverish.
]iess and itching of the scalp, which if
not remedied causes the hair roots to
shrink, loosen and die-then the hair
falls out fast. A little Danderine to
night-now--any time-will surely
save your hair.
Get a small bottle of Knowlton's
Danderine from anly drug store. You
surely can have beautiful hair and lots
of it if you will try a little Dan.
derine. Save your hair! Try it.
