*or what exactly is that, anyway?
I honestly thought it was an ice pack at first! :lol: but at closer look I realized it was a hat of some sort.

This doesn't have a picture, but there are testimonies!. Oh, yes, nothing says "It works!" better than a handful of unverified testimonies that are probably the concoction of the author of the advert. Look---It will even put the color back into your hair!
I've never seen a hair restoration ad quite like this one.
I wonder how successful the ad was; if you cut off the coupon provided, that would cut out part of the answers section, which continues on the other side of the ad.

:lol: Boy, that's the stuff isn't it? When they make some claims, they don't mess around. Notice that, conveniently, none of the first names of testifiers are given. ;)

Interesting! I didn't read the entire thing, so I did not notice that when I skimmed it. :)

Look here - they were still making this stuff in the '40's. :D I wonder how they got away with it that long? But notice that the claims have been toned down.

Here's another one for Sygol. I think it's so ridiculous that on one page they have this one,

and on another they have this one,

I understand that they had to pay for their magazine, but MY GOODNESS! Have some consistency, a la Good Housekeeping, where they always gave their ads their seal of approval. HUFF! :x :x :x

We now bring you back to your regularly scheduled program.
