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, 50c. and $1.

This delightful article for
preserving and beautifying the human hair is again put up by the original
proprietor, and is now made with the same care, skill, and attention, which
first created its immense and unprecedented sales of over one million bottles
annually! It is still sold at 25 cents in large bottles. Two million bottles can
easily be sold in a year when it is again known that the Kathairon is not only
the most delightful hair dressing in the world, but that it cleanses the scalp
of scurf and dandruff, gives the hair a lively, rich luxuriant growth, and
prevents it from turning gray. These are considerations worth knowing. The
Kathairon has been tested for over twelve years, and is warranted as described.
Any lady who values a beautiful head of hair will use the Kathairon. It is
finely perfumed, cheap and valuable. It is sold by all respectable dealers
throughout the world.. D. S. BARNES & CO., New York.
