Ruins The Hair
Girls —if you want plenty of thiek,
beautiful, glossy, silky hair, do by all
means get rid of dandruff, for it will
starve your hair and ruin it if you don't.
It jloesn't do much good to try to
brush or wash it out. The only sure
way to get rid of dandruff is to dissolve
it, then you destroy it entirely. To do
this, get about four ounces of ordinary
liquid arvon; apply it at night when re
tiring; use enough to moisten the scalp
and rub it in gently with the finger tips.
By morning, most if not all, of your
dandruff will be gone, and three or four
more applications will completely dis
solve and entirely destroy every single
sign and traee of it.
You will find, too, that all itching
and digging of the scalp will stop, and
vour hair will look and feel a hundred
times better. You can get liquid arvon
at any drug store. It is inexpensive and
four ounces is all you will need, no
.matter how much dandruff you have.
This simple remedy never fails.—Adv.
