Blue Clinic Shampoo

"Wash your hair too clean for dandruff..." Another catchy "ear-worm" 1960s radio jingle that is still remembered by those who heard it.

The science of achieving clean hair is played up in this commercial. It boldly uses the phrase "new anti-dandruff ingredient 344-tricholorocarbanilide" – which must have been a challenge for voice actors!
