Confidential analysis of your hair? Always the same. Two words: It’s gray.

The Giant decided to share his miserable health status via his homemade Twitter account. It was clear to everyone but Jack (who was too busy multitasking to look up from his iPhone) that this was not a good day to climb up the beanstalk.

If your cough is not due to a cold, the little birdies do not want to hear about it and you’re not getting any of their Wampole’s Creo-Terpin Compound either.

"You will have to do something more than wishing and shampooing" to get Lovely Hair. Which is funny, ‘cause that’s my usual modus operandi for, well, lots of things: Wishing followed by Shampooing.
But anyway, if you use Golden Glint, it’ll do for your hair what silver polish does for silver. Get the tarnish out. Make sure you scrub hard though. And make a wish while you do.

"This preparation will cause the Hair to Curl beautifully, and is warranted not to injure it in the least."
An advertisement in the Ithaca [NY] Daily Chronicle from 1846 says that:
"Beautiful Ringlets are insured to every LADY by the use of a Brazilian Hair Curling Liquid. To Gentlemen it makes the Hair set in such position as their tastes may devise. This elegant preparation has been tested by many ladies and gentlemen in New York, Philadelphia, Washington, Baltimore and other cities of the united States, it is both useful, and excellent, it curls the hair beautifully, resembling nature in her geratest perfection; it is entirely free from grease and warranted not to injure it in the least. No Lady’s Toilet, or Gentlemens’ dressing case should be without it, if you value "The Flowing Ringlet or the Witching Curl," as its use dispenses with heated irons, which injures the hair by crimping and burning it. 
"The Brazilian Curling Liquid is agreeably perfumed, in color it favors the Lemon.
"Sold for 37 1-2 cts per bottle, by L.H. Culver, Ithaca, Wholesale Agent for the State of N.Y. and to whom all orders must be addressed to J. & R.G. RADWAY, proprietors of Radways Celebrated Chinese Medicated Soap at No. 2 Cortland street, New York."

Your stomach will feel terrific, but your head may be crushed by some large letters being dropped by a strange veiled woman.
