ARE you sincerely anxious to be done with dandruff, itchy scalp, falling hair and baldness? Do you really want to grow new hair? Perhaps you've already tried hard to overcome these afflictions. Perhaps you've put faith in barbershop "tips," and used all kinds of salves, massages, tonics, all with the same results . . . lots of trouble and expense but no relief! Now, consider what / offer you. And figure out for yourself what a handsome proposition it is. I GUARANTEE to grow new hair on your head — on the top, front or temples — IN 30 DAYS ... or not one red penny of cost to you. Isn't that a different story from those you've heard before? I don't say, "try my wonderful remedy — it grows hair!" I say, and I put it in •writing, "I GUARANTEE to grow hair ... or no cost!" My Method Is Unique! Naturally, you say to yourself, "How can anyone make such a guarantee? It's hard to grow hair. I know, for I've tried a lot of things and failed." Ah, that's exactly the reason thousands who formerly suffered from scalp troubles bless the day they heard of me. For my treatment is based on science, on years and years of research. I studied scalps, not how to sell treatments. And I found, as did leading dermatologists, that ordinary surface treatments of the scalp are futile. Baldness begins at the ROOTS. If roots are dead, nothing can grow new hair. But in most cases, roots are only sleepitig, waiting for the right treatment to bring them back to healthy, normal life. I Reach the Roots Now, I leave it to you. How can ordinary treatments penetrate to the roots of your hair? How can ordinary tonics or salves remove the real cause of baldness? My treatment goes below the scalp, right down to the hair roots, awakening them to new action. My treatment works surely and quickly, all the while stimulating the tiny blood vessels around the roots to new life and action. And with just the mere investment of a few minutes a day, thousands get these results from my treatment ... or they never pay a cent !
