Hair was VERY important in the 80s. There was some kind of law that seemed to state that it had to absolutely be as big as possible. What was the best way to ensure your hair was the appropriate height and width? The right shampoo of course!
Finding the right hair products wasn't always easy, but at least they made hundreds of advertisements for us to narrow down our choices. How many of these do you recognize?
