Keep It Free From Dandruff and It
will Grow Lovely.
Being the best hair dressing for men
and women, Parisian Sage is also best
for children'. Try it once and see how
clean and healthy It keeps the scalp.
"My daughter used Parisian Sage on
her children's hair, and it is as gooa
12 yyv. iwommend it to be." Han
nah Anderson, 1021 Divine St Colum
bia. S. C". '
Here is what a North Dakota woman
"Parisian Sage certainly has done
my hair a lot of good, and will highly
recommend it as a very good tonic for
the hair. Have used various kinds of
tonics and have found Parisian Sage
the best . I have my head free from
dandruff now, and it has a healthy
luster and has an even color. It used
to be streaky. Many of my friends are
using it and they speak highly of it."
Mrs. Anna Rooney, 101 Second St.,
N. Fargo, N, D. ' r- ,
, Always bear in mind that there is
nothing for the hair that can com
pare with Parisian Sage. There are
many Imitations but none of them are
guaranteed to eradicate dandruff, stop
falling hair and itching scalp in two
weeks, or money back.
