'Total Baldness
Everyone in America has heard about the extraordinary case of John William Hutchings, of Cincinatti, Ohio, who became totally bald through a violent attack
of fever, and whose hair was completely restored in less than six months by Van Huyder's Hirsutine, the great American Hair Producer.
We guarantee that there is no preparation in the world that so rapidly and surely produces a profusion of Hair, Whiskers, Moustachios, Eyelashes, and Eyebrows'.
An advert from 1888.

Dr. Weber's Comozone
Life for the Hair, 'An absolute preventive and cure of baldness' by E.F. Gilbert.
