When I was in the 5th grade, or somewhere around then, I remember Herbal Essences was the shampoo to use. I don't know how a shampoo can be trendy, but it really was. All the "cool girls" used it.
It was probably because it smells so good, and I was just around that age when things like make up and clothes and hair styles started to become important.
I picked up a bottle of their Smooth and Shine Collections (the pink one) the other day (the same kind I used to use exactly is back on shelves!).
You know how they say scent is the best sense tied to memory? Well it's true.
I was brought right back to my hyper color t-shirt, boys to men loving middle school days.
I'm wondering if they still had these orgasmic "yes, yes, yes" ads running in the early 90's? Wonder if my mom would have still let me buy the shampoo? :)
