weak solution of one of them, and, lastly, to expose it to the light, 

to effect the object in view. Sunlight will fully darken it in a few 

minutes, but in diffused daylight it will take two or three hours, or 

longer, to acquire the deepest shade. To avoid this delay and 

inconvenience, the common practice is, a few minutes after applying 

the silver solution, to moisten or wet the hair with a solution of 

sulphuret of potassium, or of hydrosulphuret of ammonia. The effect is 

immediate, and the full depth of shade which a silver solution of the 

strength employed is capable of imparting is at once produced. A few 

minutes later and the hair and skin may be rinsed with tepid water, 

gently wiped dry, and the hair finally adjusted with the comb. The 

effect of its application, its rapid action, and the satisfactory 

nature of the effect produced, all tend to render a solution of 

nitrate of silver the favorite hair dye of those who have sufficient 

skill and steadiness of hand to use it properly.
