I was comparing conditioner bottles in the store the other day and discovered this marketing gem from the geniuses over at Tresemme:

tresemme bottle

I wonder if this conditioner will do anything to smooth my hair and make it vibrant?


Clearly, I’m in the wrong business. I could make a living being repetitive, redundant, and also saying the same thing over and over again! Sometimes, it’s okay to leave a little blank space on the bottle, people. Or just make the font a little larger. I know the instructions for shampooing and conditioning often include the word “repeat,” but perhaps that’s not advice you should be taking when designing the bottle. I mean, even your commercials only say, “Tresemme, Tresemme, ooh-la-la,” not “Tresemme, Tresemme, Tresemme, ooh-la-la.”

Okay, end of snark.


Thanks so much for reading my ridiculous thoughts! If you’d like to see my ridiculous thoughts translated into art, visit my website, or follow me on Facebook and Twitter. Know a caregiver, or someone with dementia, or someone who knows someone with dementia, or someone who knows someone who knows someone else who’s a caregiver? Or heck, do you know a person? Well, you should tell them about my book, Fractured Memories: Because Demented People Need Love, Too. Part memoir and part coffee table art book, I recount my family’s heartbreaking and hilarious journey through my father’s dementia.
