The 70's was a long time ago, but how many of us on here can still recall the shampoo ads of the era?

The ones i seem to remember the most, generally focused around some soapy bronzed bit of fluff in a steamy shower rather than having anything to do with the actual properties of the product itself.


Oh... and a mountain stream IIRC.

I was bored and decided to update my signature but i couldnt think of anything to put, so i decided to just put Bollocks!

:dog: :squeeze: I'm nearly 100% sure I remember seeing adverts for Vosene shampoo as a child in the 70's. One particular one, I think it was for Vosene, was one which said it was 'good for mums'. It was actually similar to a scene from the film 'Curly Sue'. It showed a boy in the bath having his hair washed, & I think he might have been sitting with one leg cocked over the side of the bath, which looks a bit unusual. I may very well be the only person living in Britain who actually remembers this advert, even the actors who took part in it may have completely forgotten about it.
Well, who knows?
Actually I've a sneaking fancy this particular advert may have been for Earth Born shampoo. There's an advert for Earth Born on tv-ark from 1976 & the tune used in it sounds a little bit similar to the one for Vosene from 1978.
If anyone feels the need to correct me on this then feel free.
My long-term memory is better than my short-term memory, but it's not that good.

Does the tune used in the background sound familiar to anyone?

Turns out now I'm not, there's someone on another forum somewhere who remembers it too, said it ran for years. If the boy ever went to school he must've been famous there for being been seen having his hair washed on telly.

'Alberta Vo5' or summut like.

Incidentally, my father in law lived until 6 months off a ton and he bathed in 'Tide' washing powder for years.

There is a shampoo advert from the 70's I can still remember quite vividly, & I think it could've been for Vosene. In it a blob of shampoo is shown being poured into the palm of a hand, and then a little boy is washing his hair while his dad is pulling funny faces at him, & he puts a shampoo sud on his dad's nose. Then, the boy's sister comes in the room and suggests to him that he should wash his hair 'like this'-with his fingertips.
I wish I had 50p for every time I've washed my hair with my fingertips-and they say TV doesn't influence people.

:pillow: :pillow: :hello:

Does anyone remember Earth Born shampoo or any of the ads for it? Can you still get it anywhere?
Here's a link to an old ad for it from 1976:

In the old Head & Shoulders ads they used to wash one side of a person's hair with that and the other with something else, & supposedly the side done with Head & Shoulders was free of dandruff.

Bleach does something similar, and I think old engine oil isn't far off.
