Does whatever a shampoo does

Because if it doesn’t, it’s just a sham, right?

The genuine article is at hand:

Shampooing shampoo by L'Occitane

You think maybe they have conditioning conditioner too?

    Could it be translation? In French, “shampoo” is “shampooing.”

    (I kind of think the Academie Francaise fell down on that one. Surely there’s a better French word, like maybe the translation of Soap So Your Hair Does Not Stink?). Hm. Savon pour preventir les cheveux qui pue”?

    That might make sense, since the label also translates “essential oils.”

    Incidentally, “conditioner” is “conditionneur” in French. So we really need that second bottle to be sure.

    (Then again: I find most hotels kind of cheap out and give allegedly-conditioning shampoo but no conditioner. Which always seems to me like I’m being asked to use a dessert topping that’s also a floor wax.)
