Inimitable Hair Restorative.
IT IS NOT A DYE,
But restores gray hair to its
original color, by supplying the capillary tubes with natural sustenance,
impaired by age or disease. All instantaneous dyes are composed of lunar
caustic, destroying the vitality and beauty of the hair, and afford of
themselves no dressing. Heimstreet's Inimitable Coloring not only restores hair
to its natural color by an easy process, but gives the hair a Luxuriant Beauty,
promotes its growth, prevents its falling off, eradicates dandruff, and imparts
health and pleasantness to the head. It has stood the test of time, being the
original Hair Coloring, and is constantly increasing in favor. Used by both
gentlemen and ladies. It is sold by all respectable dealers, or can be procured
by them of the commercial agent, D. S. Barnes, 202 Broadway, N.Y. Two sizes, 50
c. and $1.
