Agree Shampoo ad from the 80s featuring Belinda Carlisle 

If you weren't around in the 80s, then you might not know that back in the day, there weren't nearly as many drugstore haircare options as there are today. Nowadays, the big brands at the drugstores seem to churn out a zillion formulas for shampoo and conditioner each year, and new brands pop up on the scene all the time with even more options. 

But back in the day, there probably were less than a dozen haircare options at most drugstores, and we all had our favorites. Mine was, above all others, Agree. Why, you ask? Well it got rid of the greasies!

Don't you DARE get caught with the greasies.

Agree spoke to me on a profound level back in the day. That pretty shade of green liquid, the fact that it got rid of the "greasies" (it really did), and Belinda Carlisle of the Go-Go's was the spokesperson (The Go-Go's were my favorite band of the 80s, bar none, and not just because they were and still are an all-girl band, although that IS awesome). They knew what they were doing when marketing Agree, that's for sure. 

And that smell. So fresh, so clean. There was nothing like the fragrance of that shampoo. If you used Agree in the 80s, You. Know. That. Smell. 

In fact, if you loved the scent of Agree Shampoo, I want to tell you something...

The other day, I was going through my little stockpile of Bath & Body Works hand soaps to pick a new one for the kitchen sink. Sometimes when BB&W is having a good sale, I grab lots of bottles without really giving them a sniff test. I try to go for the ones I know I love, but I also try to pick some scents that look like they'll be "fresh and clean" since that's what Mr. G prefers at the kitchen sink (he hates "smelling like cupcakes" when he's washing his hands and preparing food, and I get that).

ANYWAY, I grabbed this bottle of Aqua Blossom to put on the kitchen sink the other day, and I don't really remember sniffing it when I bought it. I just saw the name and thought, "Oh, he won't hate that." But then I used it, and I had a minor freak out incident in the middle of my kitchen. I called Mr. G over and said, "SMELL MY HANDS!" SMELL MY HANDS!" Sadly, he didn't make the connection but I'm telling you, this stuff smells exactly like old-school Agree Shampoo! The minute I sniffed it, the scent memories flooded my brain. It took me right back to using Agree in my childhood home, getting ready for school, long, hot summer days spent washing the chlorine out my hair...all of it. My childhood in a bottle.

If you remember Agree Shampoo, and you want to recapture that scent, give Aqua Blossom a sniff the next time you're at Bath & Body Works and then come back here and tell me if you "agree." (Ba-dum-chhh.)

By the way, Agree is still being made to this day but according to the Agree Hair website, the products have "reformulated fragrances, in newly re-designed bottles". You can check out their photo gallery of old-school ads HERE. Oh, and Agree is made by the same company that makes Fa(remember Fa??).

Do you remember Agree Shampoo? Did you used to use it back in the day? If not, what was YOUR favorite shampoo during your childhood?



70’s Shampoo

The 70’s brought a whole new generation of hair products. New formula shampoo’s were all the rage & these three were some of the most memorable.

Magazine ad for ‘Agree Shampoo & Conditioner’

‘Agree’ was a popular hair care brand in the 1970s, when the shampoo and conditioner vowed to help young consumers avoid the scourge known as “the greasies.” S.C. Johnson’s advertising for its Agree shampoo, and the accompanying cream rinse and conditioner, promised to fight the oily hair that it said teens in particular were especially susceptible to. The ads said that Agree conditioner, for example, was 99.75% oil-free and provided “beautiful wet combing and great conditioning, without the use of oils that can cause the greasies.”

Agree was later discontinued, although the hair care products are not forgotten, and some devoted fans still buy dusty bottles  via the Internet.

“Gee Your Hair Smells Terrific” shampoo became popular in the mid-1970’s. The shampoo and conditioner were created and marketed by the Andrew Jergens Company. GYHST was known for its spicy floral fragrance that lingered for hours after washing hair and drying. This shampoo came in a magenta colored bottle with bright, bubbly lettering on the label. The packaging was as much of an attention grabber as the product name and distinctive fragrance.

In its heyday this shampoo’s marketing campaign claimed to stop men dead in their tracks as a young woman with a shining, bouncy mane flounced past them on the sidewalk. As she passed, they would stop her and exclaim “Gee Your Hair Smells Terrific!” It may or may not have caused young men to turn their heads, but this shampoo really did smell great.

Many people loved GYHST shampoo and conditioner, and were bewildered when they could no longer find it at their local pharmacy or discount store. For unknown reasons, Jergens discontinued this popular shampoo in the early 1980s. This decision was not a popular one among the users of this shampoo that has a cult like following.

Discontinuing products is not unusual in the cosmetics and beauty product industry. People tend to buy products that contain the newest ingredients, formulated from cutting edge technology. Though it is not clear whether or not sagging sales or the need for a new and improved shampoo is the reason for Jergens’ decision to stop making this product.

Body on Tap Advert

Body on Tap Shampoo was created in 1978 by Bristol-Myers Products and came in an “oily”, “normal” and “dry” formula.The original formula contained 1/3 beer which people used to believe made hair fuller and softer. Whether it was the beer which enhanced the fullness and softness of the hair or not, the shampoo did leave hair very soft and full, especially after blow drying.

I remember all three of these products, with ‘Ágree’ being the one I used the most. My mum bought  me this in my early teens when the hormones started to kick in & I along with most kids in my class suffered greasy teenage hair. Then came ‘body on tap’, which had beer in it, so it must be good!!

1. Farrah Fawcett Shampoo

When you think of hair in the 1970s, only one person's name comes to mind: Farrah Fawcett. So it's only fitting that the television star had her own shampoo line with Fabergé. For a time, women all over the country could have the effortless bounce that she had (or be disappointed when their hair didn't turn out quite like that).

2. Body on Tap

"Brewed with 1/3 real beer… but don't drink it!" That's what actress Kim Basinger told us about Body on Tap. The shampoo was made with real beer, which was supposed to give hair more shine. It might have worked, but we're more concerned about how many people tried to taste it...

3. Bright Side Shampoo

Everyone wanted Farrah Fawcett's hair in the 1970s, but they should have been looking at Kim Basinger. The budding actress appeared in yet another shampoo ad during the decade, this time for Bright Side. The shampoo promised to catch and reflect light by utilizing a natural brightener.

4. Gee, Your Hair Smells Terrific

This shampoo's branding was simple and to the point. When you bought Gee, Your Hair Smells Terrific, you knew exactly what they were getting yourself into — someone sniffing your head. The shampoo had a strong floral scent that lasted for hours after use. Although you can't find it in the U.S. anymore, the formula was sold to a company in the Phillippines, where it is still popular.

5. Short & Sassy

Sure, people with short hair may need different products, but do they really need different shampoo? For Clairol, the answer was yes! The company released Short & Sassy shampoo and conditioner in the 1970s, and even had figure skating (and wedge haircut) legend Dorothy Hamill as its spokesperson.

6. Lemon Up

Rinsing your hair with lemon was a popular beauty tip in the 1970s, but the creators of "Lemon Up" took it to another level. The shampoo claimed to have the juice of an entire lemon in each bottle, making hair shinier and brighter.

7. Earth Born

Earth Born was marketed towards people who were looking for a more natural shampoo. In print ads, pH test paper was dipped in the product to show it was low pH and non-alkaline.

8. Agree

Did your hair agree, or disagree? For people who "had the greasies" in the 1970s, Agree was the answer they had been looking for! The shampoo promised to take away grease because it was 99.75% oil free.

9. Breck

Were you a Breck girl? One bottle of "Breck" was all you needed to become one. The shampoo featured "normal" women on their advertisements to promote healthier and more manageable hair.

Gee, Your Hair Smells Terrific

Gee Your Hair Smells Terrific Shampoo

Gee, Your Hair Smells Terrific was a popular shampoo[1] manufactured by the Andrew Jergens Company during the 1970s and '80s. The shampoo is noted for its pungent floral fragrance that softened after rinsing and remained in the user's hair for an extended period of time.[2] The shampoo's unique scent has been described as smelling like a combination of chamomile, bubblegum and sage.[1]

While out of production in the United States since the late 1980s, the formula was licensed to Vibelle Manufacturing Corporation of Malabon, Philippines and is currently sold in the Philippines, where it is still popular.[3] In the United States, the shampoo is currently sold by The Vermont Country Store and can be ordered by phone or online.[4]

Pop culture references[edit]

The product's unusually long name was satirized on The Simpsons. In one episode, Patty Bouvier waxes her upper lip using a product called "Gee, Your Lip Looks Hairless," and in another episode, a sports venue on the show had been named "The Gee Your Hair Smells Terrific Arena."[5]

It was also mentioned in the season 4 Boy Meets World episode "Fishing for Virna"; when Shawn and his father Chet babysit Frankie's little brother Herman, the latter steals the Hunters' bottle of shampoo, for which he is later made to return it and apologize. After Herman does so, an astounded Chet exclaims "All the valuable things we have in this trailer, and you steal our shampoo?! What kind of weird little thief are you?".

In the 2004 episode of the comedy TV show Will & Grace, Will & Grace & Vince & Nadine (season 7, episode 7), Karen Walker mentions that she has bought Grace a bottle of Gee, Your Hair Smells Terrific.[6]
