New greaseless way to keep your hair neat all day (Jun, 1956)

Panda hair? Was this a common expression?

New greaseless way to keep your hair neat all day
Prevents dry, unruly “panda hair”

New Vitalis keeps hair in place and prevents dryness with V-7, the grease-less grooming discovery.

You never have an over-slick, plastered-down look. Try it. You’ll like it.
New VITALIS” Hair Tonic with V-7,

    “… with V-7”

    “V” being the first letter in “Vitalis” and “7” being the number of letters in the word, “Vitalis.” Clever.

    As for “panda hair” … I can’t even figure out from the context what that’s supposed to mean!

    They still sell this stuff! And Brylcreem.

    …And then the panda ate his head.

    Vitalis’s main hair conditioning component (at least these days) is polypropylene glycol 40 butyl ether, a name that doesn’t exactly roll off the tongue.

    Is it just me, or does that guy have an over-slick, plastered-down look?

    Hey Rick- I still use Brylcream

    Charlene, it can be shortened as “goo”.

  8. Charlene says: May 13, 20111:31 pm

    The proper abbreviation is “greasy kid stuff”.

    I keep my hair under control by tying it back into a ponytail.

    Incidentally, did everyone know that St. Vitalis is the patron saint of genital disease? Someone in County Meath is auctioning his skull today.

    Charlene, I didn’t know you needed hair tonic for THAT hair!
