No More Tangles by Johnson & Johnson

by anna on November 8, 2008

Yeah, that’s right. I still use this stuff. What of it? You would use it, too, if the stuff growing out of your head was comprised not so much of “hair” as it is tiny little threads of the very brittle and extremely flat variety that seem to fuse to each other in tiny little knots at the slightest hint of a cross-breeze. My Mom used to use this stuff on my hair when I was little, and I remember because there was a picture of a little blonde girl in 70s-era clothing on the bottle, and I thought, “Wow, that girl looks like me, kinda. What are the odds?!” Because I didn’t know then that little blonde girls are kind of like the golden retrievers of childrens’ grooming products: totally overexposed and entirely interchangeable in the language of mass market packaging. Of course, now the No More Tangles packaging is a little more culturally inclusive, and also a little less embarrassing of a purchase for the thirty-something woman with no female children, sneaking down the kiddie hair products aisle and buying yet another bottle of this liquid gold in its tasteful, seafoam green packaging.

I keep Johnson’s Baby Shampoo in my shower. It’s great for removing eye make-up. I also use it to clean my fancy make-up brushes.

I started using it a few months ago, after spending a lot more on Aveda’s Styling Curessence, which basically does the same thing at 4x the price.

Buy it, love it, would like to get high off the smell of it. Oh, and my hair isn’t tangled, either. If Johnsons and Johnsons would like to use the above line in their advertisements, I’d not be adverse!

I’m surprised they haven’t marketed a dark blue bottle for adult men.

I too was told to use this shampoo for eye care. And after a hair colour disaster (at the salon!), another stylist recommended I shampoo with this, wrap my head in plastic wrap, heat it with a blow dryer for 10 minutes, and then rinse, to remove the icky colour as much as possible. Happily, my hair colour has been restored, two years later ;)

An all round excellent product to have in the house at all time, no matter WHO you are!

I just keep my hair at about an inch long. I don’t recommend my method for tangle-free hair for you, however.

Oh my lord, I had forgotten all about that yellow 70′s packaging.

I’m so distracted by the purse in the background (which I SWEAR is the same as mine), that I couldn’t even focus on the product. I’ll be back later, after email me and tell me what kind of purse it is so I can once again affirm my fashion expertise.
