Farrah Fawcett Shampoo with Vitamins and Minerals

Farrah Fawcett Shampoo was produced by Faberge, Inc. of Hollywood, Calif., from the late 1970s through the mid-1980s. Under the leadership of George Barrie (1964-1984), the company launched many cosmetic products and deployed celebrities, including Joe Namath, Roger Moore, and Muhammad Ali, to endorse them.
Capitalizing on the enormous popularity of Farrah Fawcett and her famous blond tresses during the 1970s, this shampoo was part of an entire line of Farrah Fawcett hair care products. The efficacy of vitamins, minerals, proteins, and herbs on hair is still debated. This particular bottle was likely produced between 1977 and 1979.

Everyone's so right. It had such a luxurious and recognizable scent that I could pick it out today. If only they could bring it back and give the proceeds to her foundation that would be a great Memorial to an Icon That dazzled a decade with her beauty and talent and somehow managed to make us all feel special if not a little more glamorous with each shampoo.
"Él shampoo era maravilloso, te dejaba una suavidad en el cabello y el aroma te duraba bastante era hermoso este aroma, ojalá alguien retomará la fórmula, saludos"
"You know there's always a scent that takes you back to one particular place in time....this was it for me!!! Memories of a pre-teen coming home from a day at the ocean, full of sand and all sunburned...and getting into the shower and washing my hair with this glorious smell!!!! I know Farrah's gone, but I WISH somehow they could bring this scent back!!! It would bring me right back to 1979!!!!"
"I agree! It was a great favorite of mine, "back in the day "- special memory- wish they would bring if back now!!!..."
