Vitalis
Full color 9 1/2" x 13" ad for this hair dressing for men. The ad has a picture of a man with a full head of hair that is perfectly in place working on his sailboat while several attractive ladies stand behind him, whispering as they check him out. The ad headline asks you to "Summerproof your Hair with Vitalis" and the ad text describes the 60 second workout which involves massaging Vitalis into your scalp. The ad mentions that Vitalis contains pure vegetable oils which, since my wife is always watching The Food Network, brings to mind all kinds of emergency cooking scenerios. This ad is larger than my scanner bed so the outer edges of the ad will not be visible in the scanned view.

Vitalis
Black and white 9 1/2" x 13" ad for the "New greaseless way to keep your hair neat all day" which happened to be Vitalis Hair Tonic with V-7. There are two pictures at the top of the page and they are both of a man called Billy Pierce. In the first picture he is taking a shower and, well, the headline says that "Billy Pierce took a shower" and he is drenched with his mouth open. In the second picture he is smiling and his hair is combed very neatly and the ad headline says "then he used Vitalis". This Billy Pierce is a left-handed pitcher for the Chicago White Sox and he says "I take a shower every day - so I use Vitalis every day". He then says that "It's not greasy. And if the rest of me stays in as good condition as my hair and scalp, I'll still be playing ball in 1970".

Vitalis
Black and white 9 1/2" x 14" ad for their Hair Tonic with V-7. The ad has two pictures of Chicago White Sox pitcher Billy Pierce, the first is of him in the shower with water running down his face and his hair looking like it does when you are in the shower. In the second picture he is out, dressed and has combed his hair perfectly with Vitalis. The headline calls this the "New greaseless way to keep your hair neat all day" and has pictures of a lady holding up pillows, one from a man who uses a greasy hair tonic and the other from a man who uses Vitalis. As should be expected from an advertisement the one on the left, the greasy hair tonic, looks like it was placed under a battered 1910 Ford truck to keep the driveway clean. This ad is larger than my scanner bed so the outer edges of the ad will not be visible in the scanned view.

Woodbury
Black and white 9 1/2" x 13" ad for their Cocoanut Oil Castile Shampoo. The ad says "New! Introductory 1/2 Price Sale. $1.00 size now only 50 cents". This ad is larger than my scanner bed so the outer edges of the ad will not be visible in the scanned view.

Woodbury
Black and white 7 1/2" x 11" for their Long-Lasting Shampoo. There is an actual photo of Mollie Ann Bourn who has had the blonde hair on the right side of her head washed with Woodbury Shampoo and the left side washed with "another popular shampoo". The difference is enough for a guy like me to notice but pay little attention to and the headline claims that "A famous laboratory proves: Hair washed with the new Woodbury Shampoo holds curl better, keeps set longer". The text claims that hundreds of women were tested this way with Good Housekeeping magazine overseeing and claims that a "generous bottle" would only cost you 39 cents.
