Re: Anyone Else Miss This Shampoo?

@San Antonio Gal, I rinsed my hair in real beer. Even though I remember Body On Tap and all the other great old brands mentioned above, I used whatever shampoo Mom got at the store.

Re: Anyone Else Miss This Shampoo?

I remember using Herbal Essence in college....at that time I had a full head of hair that had never been colored.  Loved the scent...always thought of a rain forest.  Today...thin colored hair that has to be pampered with all kinds of concerns of what is added or not added to my shampoo along with a laser helmet to encourage growth.  (Although, I have not colored my hair for several months and, oddly, it looks like the white/blond of my childhood...totally unexpected.)

 

 The scent of HE is seductive,  it was one of those shampoos that was only a cleanser and not known for its healthy hair benefits....but we sure did smell great!

Just wanted to add that -  Herbal Essence shampoo is currently made by Proctor and Gamble.

Re: Anyone Else Miss This Shampoo?

I bought a bottle of Body on Tap shampoo when it first came out because my SIL swore by it, gave her hair lots of body, it didn't do too much for my hair.  Another SIL (her sibling) used real beer to rinse her hair but it got too expensive due to the amount of hair she had, long and thick, that treatment didn't last too long, but she too swore the beer gave her hair lots of body.

Just thought of the other shampoo that was all the rage at that same time.....Protein 21 The shampoo that was supposed to repair split ends. My hair was down to my waist then and so thick there wasn't enough Tame to settle it down !

 

Prior to those "new" shampoos I used Egg Shampoo, the only thing really available, or the only thing my Mom had in the house! It was in a huge bottle and was sparkly yellow!

I LOVED the smell of Herbal Essence shampoo!!!!

 

There was a strawberry-scented shampoo that I really liked, too.  If I were to smell it now, it would take me back to my sophomore year in college. 😁

Re: Anyone Else Miss This Shampoo?

Wow! @4kitties - thank you for posting!

 

 

When my mom died there was a bottle in the shower. I used it constantly, and before I knew better- and before DH - I would take our kitty in the shower with me and wash her with it (my parents' bathtub had a sliding door at the time). 


 

So I brought that bottle home with me and took it out to smell every once in a while. I finally threw it out, just one or two years ago. I felt like I was parting with a piece of my history!  Smiley Sad
