c.1977-1981: “Gee, Your Hair Smells Terrific!” Ads Chris November 3, 2012 1970-1979, Ads & brands, Fashion & beauty 7 CommentsFavourited 932 times Add to favourites 7 Responses CatM November 3, 2012 I loved this shampoo! I bought some from the Vermont Country Store when it became available again but DANG does it ever dry your hair out fast. I can see why it’s not really on too many shelves again. Modern shampoos are definitely better, but none of them have that wonderful smell that stays with you all day. Reply oakbyriver November 4, 2012 LOVE IT! This shampoo was de rigeur at age 14. EVERY girl had a (prominent) bottle in her shower! (It really DID smell terrific, curiously…) It is still sold, I believe. About 99% alcohol and 1% fragrance. So nostalgic, though…wonderful!!! Reply oakbyriver November 4, 2012 BTW: With marketing brilliance, this shampoo was only bested by the one that had “real beer!” in it. Somehow, they marketed it to everyone, including teenage girls. (Ready to try beer, perhaps?) Wait, it might have had Farrah Fawcett as spokesmodel? THAT would do it! Though, I thought she came out with her own shampoo (she should have, along with conditioner, and a whole hair tools line. She had the best hair ever of any human, ever. Her hair was legend. She is a legend herself now, all of her, too. Bless you, Farrah, we love you so! Reply oakbyriver November 4, 2012 Found it. The shampoo was called “Body on Tap.” With 1/4 real beer! As I remember, it was actually good shampoo. The spokesmodel was the stunning KIM BASINGER, very young. What a childhood…the late 70′s and 80′s. Amazing times and the apex of cheesiness, yet, being copied – all of it, all of our childhood stuff – right now! I resent it but am flattered, too. We RULED! Even our shampoo. Reply oakbyriver November 4, 2012 Cat, yes, it was so full of alcohol! I found it at a grocery store in a little town in Ga. Had to buy some, of course! Yes, it was awful as a shampoo, but smelled, well…terrific! That smell was so intoxicating (more than the beer one!) Reply Helen Spencer (SaveEveryStep) November 7, 2012 So bad I love ‘em! Reply star November 8, 2012 “Gee” was also popular here in the Philippines during the 80′s-90′s. Yes, I won’t forget the jingle and the commercials shown here. Saw it as a child.
