    When I was a child in the 70's there was a UK TV advert, I seem to remember it being for Vosene anti-dandruff shampoo but I couldn't be quite certain. It said the shampoo was 'good for mums' and showed a boy having his hair washed in the bath.I seem to have a vague recollection of him sitting with one leg cocked over the bath but once again couldn't be certain.
    If you have any recollection of this advert or know where it can be seen (purely for nostalgic purposes)please let me know.

        And I thought your "Hair Washing in the Swimming Baths" thread was very strange.

            "Not going to lie, this is kinda creepy."
            At the end of the day it is only an advert you know. I'm sure no-one was offended by it in the days when it was on.
            Should there be a list of 'banned' adverts that you can't discuss on here just in case anyone jumps to the wrong conclusions and assumes it's pervy?

              It's not the ad. It's the way you talk about it.

              "a boy having his hair washed in the bath...sitting with one leg cocked over the bath"
              "A little girl stood on a step at the side of the showers having it done, with her hair in the most fantastic lather"
              "a girl of about ten came, stood on the step & put her head forward as though she was having it done in the hairdressers."


              The details that you seem to find important usually involve young children in showers or baths, very particular things about the way their bodies are shown, lots of soap.

                I implore you to tell that to a psychiatrist or similar.

                  Whether or not you meant it like whatever way you intended, it came across creepy. In the future, I would advise against requesting more information on a commercial that involves small children bathing. Find it on your own.

                      Well, this thread has had eight replies now. You never know, one day I might get one from somebody who actually recalls seeing the ad.
