Usage conditions apply
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.

Hands down the best smelling shampoo I ever tried. To this day nothing can touch it. Intoxicating! One can dream they would bring back the formula/fragrance.......
I definitely agree! I used Farah Fawcett shampoo and LOVED IT!! There isn't one shampoo on the market today that comes close to the wonderful smell or the way it made my hair feel and look! I sure wish I could find it now!! I really miss it!!
this was THE BEST shampoo i've ever tried. i was cynical about using it, but after application - wow! i was so sad when they discontinued the brand. i wish that faberge could "re-invent" it in some form. loved the smell and delivery of wella balsam shampoo and conditioner (both backed by farrah then) as well.
El shampo era muy bueno yo lo usé cuando era joven pero era demasiado bueno ojalá que lo volviera acer de nuevo
I remember still the fragrance of the shampoo! I was using it for several years. Sadly the production of the shampoo stopped in the mid eighties!
¡POR FAVOR! VUELVAN A PRODUCIRLO!!! Tendría mucho éxito! Nunca he vuelto a probar un champú que se le asemeje ni remotamente!!!
Tenía un aroma espectacular y muy buen fijador, te duraba el rico olor todo el día ..el cabello quedaba brillante y suave, de verdad lo extraño
El mejor shampo de la historia ojalá alguien lo vuelva a fabricar.
Farrah Fawcett shampoo was the best shampoo and conditioner ever made. My hair behaved and smelled heavenly. Wish they would bring it back exactly like it was.
Recently, I went to SCENTMATCHERS to create a custom blended fragrance for me based on Farrah Fawcett Shampoo... they were Spot On! The fragrance is lovely and takes me back to the ‘70’s.
I worked for Faberge and escorted Farrah around when she came to Toronto to launch the shampoo. I have been searching for that scent ever since!! How do I go about getting it too? Is it a custom blend for you? Are you able to give me the ingredients? Thank you so much! Jayne
Jayne Pritchard, you may have explored the website/s a bit more or figured this out by now and/or may not be back to this site, but just in case, or if this might be of help to anyone else: if you hover your cursor over the sides of the photo of the shampoo bottle, you can arrow/scroll through photos that show the listed ingredients. The scent isn't specifically designated of course, although something is mentioned about "herbals". If you go to the Scentmatchers site mentioned by another visitor to this site (thanks!), there's a space given to enter the product name if it's not a listed product on the site. I'm not sure if that's what the person did and/or of the company then tries to access the ingredients or recreate it, but maybe you could try doing that, or contact the Scentmatchers site by chat or email. Also, surprised to see this interesting history site, and, you never know who'll you find has visited! ;-) Congrats on all your media work and book. Best of luck to all.
Era un shampoo maravilloso. ..incredible aroma que era riquisimo. .ojala alguien lo volviera a producer.fue parte de mi vida en Los ochentas...
I loved, loved, loved this shampoo and conditioner. It had the most amazing scent and my hair was gorgeous looking and smelling. I even tried to find it on ebay but couldn't. They really need to bring this back....it would fly off the shelves!!
I totally agree...every once in a while I check if its back in stores...if it ever does come back I'll buy it by the the case...why dont they bring it back...I dont understand
Tendría mucho exito, que saliera al mercado la lineas Faberge, sobre todo los productos de shampoo y acondicionador de Farrah Fawcett eran increibles, con un olor que nunca se me ba olvidar, te dejaba tu vcabello espectacular, me dio mucha tristeza cuando lo dejaron de producir y no he podido encontrar un shampoo ni siquiera que lo iguale . Seria un !bumm! si lo sacaran otra vez.Gracias
I loved this shampoo - sure wish they'd bring it back.
Thank you, This was an amazing effective hair care product. Have not found anything that made my hair as healthy as the Farrah faucet hair care line. The scent was beautiful and so fresh I got compliments all the time. It needs to come back in honor of miss faucet name and charity bring it back,
Loved the Farrah Faucet Shampoo. It absolutely made my thin hair look thicker, bouncer and shiny. Someone really, really needs to make this available again.
Yes! This was amazing and I agree with the other comments about how amazing the smell was. So wish they would continue making this formula.
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!!!..."
