Suck the hair right out of your head (Apr, 1939)

This reminds me of the playdough barber shop I had when I was a kid. The one where you stuffed a plastic head with playdough then rammed it through holes in the scalp like a pasta machine.

YOUR HAIR
Is it getting thin?
Is it falling out?

CROSLEY XERVAC

IF poor blood circulation of the scalp causes your trouble, try the XERVAC way to arrest it-

Scalp specialists know that good, rich blood circulating in the deep-seated blood vessels of the scalp nourishes the hair roots, aids in arresting abnormal loss of hair, helps to produce hair growth. It is known that VACUUM and PRESSURE around scalp, applied intermittently and properly controlled, is highly effective for forcing fresh, stimulating blood deep into these blood vessels. One way to do it has been found in the regular use of Crosley XERVAC-that popular hair and scalp device used so successfully in barber shops and clinics.
