August Adventures - Possible false advertising here

As you may remember (I hope you remember), but if you don't or are new to my blog (I hope I have some newbies out there)...I wrote about this shampoo in February:

I used it as picture #59 in my 365 picture project.  At the time I commented upon the writing on the bottle that said "Up to 100 uses."  The bottle was not full then.  In fact, I had no idea how much was left in it or how many times it had already been used.  It felt about 1/2 full.  We are now up to picture #220 so that's 161 uses.   Subtract 60 uses because sometimes I don't wash my hair every day and the BOTTLE IS NOT EMPTY YET.  I even checked the directions and it does not say "lather, rinse, repeat" as was on some shampoo bottles, so that means I am using it in the proper manner. 

Obviously I'm not really going to complain about getting more than 100 uses out of this shampoo, it just is interesting to me how they picked that particular number and why they would put a limit on the number of times you could use the product.  I might say something about the fact that I don't really get any extra "oomph" to my flat hair, but I think that's a lost cause anyway at this point.  

Got a favorite shampoo?  Get extra uses out of a product?  Anything you use to give your hair "oomph?"  Love to hear about it.

  1. I'm not sure what this says about me, but when I saw "100 Uses" I was thinking they meant other functions besides being used as a hair shampoo. That would have really taxed the imagination!

    I rarely use shampoo since I have so little hair left. When I do use it, I use whatever my wife has gotten for me--usually something like the bonus she received after purchasing some special cosmetic deal at Macy's.
