I love commercials from the 1950s, especially haircare product commercials, as you can imagine. These vintage shampoo commercials from the Golden Age of Television will add a little brightness to your winter day.
- White Rain Lotion Shampoo commercial
- Lustre-Creme Shampoo with Lanolin commercial
- Drene Shampoo commercial
White Rain Lotion Shampoo
White Rain started selling beauty products in 1952 with its release of White Rain Lotion Shampoo. It is absolutely worth watching this commercial all the way through to see a happy White Rain customer dance in rain slicks around giant shampoo bottles. You can still buy White Rain shampoo today (commissions possible). It is about 1 step above the quality of body wash, but if you are one of those people that can use any shampoo and it doesn’t affect the health of your hair, go for it. Be vintage!

Lustre-Creme Shampoo with Lanolin
You might be noticing a trend in these shampoo names. Lanolin in Lustre-Creme and lotion in White Rain shampoos let every women know their hair would be shiny and soft if she used their shampoo brands.
Lustre-Creme’s famous tagline was, “Never Dries…It Beautifies.” And ads for this shampoo featured some of the most famous actresses in Hollywood.
The hair model in this Lustre-Creme commercial is wearing a teased up bouffant masterpiece of a hairstyle too!

“Royal Drene can’t dry your hair out.” or so they claim in this 1958 commercial. A young woman tells her friends she can’t go anywhere tonight, because she washed her hair earlier and so her hair is unmanageable. The idea being, again, that shampooing your hair is drying, but not with Royal Drene Shampoo.
This commercial also has some immaculate all-around views of very cute vintage hairstyles from the 1950s.
