Actually, I already had the shampoo on hand, eight large bottles of TreSemme shampoo that a buddy of mine who works at a wholesaler gave to me--the bottles were damaged and were otherwise going to be thrown out, so he gave them to me. And then a little earlier tonight at Kroger, I remembered that I was out of conditioner, so I went to the aisle and was pleasantly surprised to see that the conditioner I usually use (and the shampoo, too, when I'm out)--V05--was on sale (well, with my Kroger card) for 77 cents a bottle. So I got the last 36 bottles of VO5 conditioner on the shelves. The cashier didn't bat an eye. I know from previous conversations that she sees all kinds of weird things at night, and I'm more than happy to reinforce that sense of weirdness.

As far as shampoo is concerned, it's a running joke between me and one of the late-night cashiers at the CVS near my house that whenever I run out of shampoo, I have to use real poo!

Pardon my mixing of metaphors, but if the shampoo is kept in a cool, dark place with Elvis, it shouldn't "go bad" in just a year.

I saw unopened bottles of Agree shampoo and conditioner (1980's) go for 20 bucks on e-bay.

20 bucks for bottles of 30-year-old shampoo?? What's the deal, did it ferment and go well with steak?

Nickelless, you shop and CVS, and pay 77 cents for shampoo? I have not paid for shampoo for myself or my girlfriend in years courtesy of CVS and Walgreens. I have so much, I donate a lot to local shelters before it goes bad.

OOPS, sorry, I'm mixing my stories. The 77-cent shampoo was at Kroger, but the running joke about buying "real poo" is at CVS.

Just curious, how can shampoo "go bad"?? How can you tell?

I dont think it goes bad. I just have a lot, and keep getting more. I donate the old stuff to get a tax deduction.
