THERMO CAP HAIR GROWER
MADE BY ALLIED MERCK INSTITUTES INC.
Offered for your consideration is this wonderful and extremely rare quack medical hair growing cap. Comes with original box. Billed as to be able to grow hair on a chicken egg. There is a copy of the advertising leaf that I found on the web that will be included. Circa 1925, and made of aluminum, electrical socket and wiring and heavy card stock. All you had to do was screw the socket/plug into a light outlet and sit back with this on your chrome dome and wait for the curly locks to grow WOW!!!!! Operated with a blue hued light bulb inside the cap, cap is adjustable to fit any head size, place cap on your head and turn it on. That is all there was to it. Well to say the least it did not grow hair and most likely roasted the top of your head from the heat of the light bulb if you fell asleep while using this miraculous device.
Shipping cost includes insurance for this item based on the scale below.
