Dear Shampoo Manufacturer,

I recently purchased one of your products to try in my never-ending search for a shampoo that will get oily hair clean.

I mistakenly believed that a product entitled "Oily Roots & Dry Ends" would have been formulated for someone who has oily roots and (by reason of the length of the hair belonging to the individual in question) has some need for moisture application to the ends.

What I didn't realise is that the label of the product was to highlight the desired results! Silly me!

Would you permit me to suggest a more appropriate name for this product? I believe "Olive oil roots and ends like straw" would be far more descriptive of the results I achieved after a few weeks of use.

Fortunately I am blessed with a non-descriminating husband who is finishing the bottle while I move on to try other products.

Yours Faithfully,
No longer your customer.

And the chance that blogging isn't the preferred weapon for the passive-aggressive among us?
... Approximately None!

I tend to go for shampoo for oily hair, then put sorbolene in the ends of my hair when it's wet to make them less crunchy.

What a pain. [as a hairdresser] I have only come across one shampoo for oily roots and dry ends that actually works. DeLorenzo makes it. But it's expensive.

Otherwise I would recommend getting a shampoo for oily hair only and then just putting a smidge of conditioner on the ends of your hair only....

When I hate a shampoo, I use it for bubble bath. It's win-win.

I have actually since found a Tresemme product for deep cleansing that gets my hair clean, and despite the fact it's twice the price, it's also twice the volume of my normal shampoo. I am now happy. (but couldn't resist the opportunity to post - can't waste these things!)

And yes, I only ever put conditioner in the ends of my hair. it makes it soft and so I can get a comb through it.

Your post was so well-written it made me smile :) I found you at "Where the blog are you" so am just stopping by to say hi. Glad you found a shampoo you like!
