1970’s Hair Care

Ahhh, Agree Shampoo. I can smell the slightly earthy fragrance even now. The 70’s proved to be the birth of many brands of hair care products – it was the beginning of the ‘at home’ hair care boom!

Do you remember:
Faberge (if you tell two friends . . .) and that great honeycomb bottle!
Gee, Your Hair Smells Terrific!
Tame
Wella Balsam
Breck

Yup, this was certainly a defining moment for me – I became a slave to my shampoo. Because I really did want my hair to smell terrific!

    Prell was my shampoo of choice back in the 70’s. “I was flat, till I went fluffy!” LOL!

    And don’t forget Lemon Up, “with real lemon,” and Body On Tap, “made with real beer.” And what about Flex shampoo?

    • Oh (it wouldn’t let me edit my original comment) you can get those shampoos, Body on Tap and Lemon Up, in the original formulas from the Vermont Country Store (along with many other nostalgic products)
