Even though I was a Breck Girl in the ’70s (Breck shampoo for oily hair, that is), I fell prey to the kitschy advertising of the kitschy “Gee, Your Hair Smells Terrific” shampoo. This newfangled ‘fragrance’ shampoo was just so compelling: “Shampoo & conditioner with fragrance that goes to your head. And to his!” If there was a hair product that completely epitomized the mid-70s, this was it.
With a slightly flowery, slightly spicy, deliciously nice to be near scent, it was to leave your hair clean, soft, and full of bounce and sunshine. I remember trying it once, and actually liked it. It did leave my hair looking good and there was a definite scent left over. The problem was that I got tired of the scent over time – this was when I washed my long hair every day – and by the time I reached the end of the bottle, that was it for me. Back to Breck shampoo and unscented hair!
