If they STILL put instructions on some shampoo bottles???


1. Wet hair thoroughly with warm water

2. Apply a generous amount of Mr. Andre?s SuperModel-Strength,
Anti-Sludge Shampoo (with kumquat & alfalfa extracts)

3. Gently Wash hair

4. Rinse

5. Repeat

PLUS, they also include a phone number to call if you have any


Perhaps they should also include, with that phone number, a warning that
if you try to use a land phone in the shower, you'll get a dangerous
electric shock.
