    Speak of the devil! I saw this for the fist time yesterday when I went to the bss. I've never used it. It's black and it smells exactly like Glover's and the directions say to leave it in for three days before shampooing. [​IMG]

    Some of the jars had ingredients listed and some didn't... It smells like Glover's, but I didn't see pine tar or sulfer on the list. I'm also interested in finding out if anyone here has used it.

    The next time I go to the store (I'm sure it will be soon [​IMG] ) I'll jot down the ingredients for you. The clerks are used to seeing me do this and get a big kick out of it. [​IMG]

    That sounds like the "Dog Mane" we made back in the day which was a mixture of Glover's and Vaseline. I remember when I was in the 6th grade a classmate, who had 3 inches of hair, came back for summer break with hair pass her shoulders. I wish I could try this, but the smell [​IMG].

    I had to make an emergency bss run--I dropped my activator/gel mixture on the floor and it exploded all over my bathroom! [​IMG]

    Here's the info:

    Frenchee Super Gro Scalp and Temple Ointment Hair Conditioner and Hair Dress
    White petrolatum, lanolin, microcristalline wax, fragrance, vitamin e acetate, hydrolyzed collagen, methyl paraben, vitamin A & D, yellow dye #11, FD&C green #6

    It smells identical to Glover's. I don't think they listed all the ingredients...

    Happylocks,

    I can't tell if it works, only what I was told by my classmate what her mother did to grow out her hair. I'll tell you the truth, When I was in college, I tried it for one week, but did not stick with it. If you try it I would suggest doing it on summer break then you can apply it every day. And you should up # of times you wash your hair since the ingredients in the mixture could clogg your pores.

    A lot of people say Glover's increased their growth rate. I couldn't stick with it long enough to see a difference... And this stuff seems very similar to Glover's. Only in a grease instead of a liquid.

    Please don't. [​IMG] When I opened the jar in the store, someone a couple of feet away said, "What's that smell?" [​IMG] I can't imagine anyone lasting three days with this stuff in her hair. [​IMG] Even if she stays in the house alone!

    Let us know how it works for you. I tried Glover's for a few weeks and the smell nearly drove me insane. And I only left it on for a couple of hours. [​IMG] I know I wouldn't be able to stand smelling the Frenchee for three days.

    FYI--If you find that the scent lingers after you shampoo, try applying some Kemi Oyl Shea Butter Pomade and/or some Pantene Detangling Spray. That's what I used to get rid of the Glover's smell.

    I've never tried Dog Mane or Glover's but a few years ago before I stopped using products with petroleum &amp; mineral oil I oiled my scalp with Sulfer 8 and got a lot of growth. Maybe these products will do the same since they contain sulfer too? I'm starting to think there may be something to these old-timey remedies. I mean, I was slathering this thick petroleum filled, stinky grease on my scalp 3x a week and washing every two weeks and my hair grew faster than ever. Go figure.

    [/ QUOTE ] [​IMG]The summer is here and I am ready to use my Frenchees, anyone care to join me. Is there anything eles I can add to it to give it a boast. I will really enjoy that, If that girl had 3 inches and came back with hair passed her shoulders, I would say more then 6 inches, corrected me if I am wrong,
    I measure with tape (HL 2 End) starting with 3 inches, took it to my shoulders and that was 20 inches, [​IMG], that is 17 inches, and I am 5'6. it would be alot less if I was shorter I think [​IMG]Is that possible [​IMG].What age was she? Does anyone know how often I should use it, and how it works?

    Do any of you think, My calculation are corrected, [​IMG], that is a lot of inches if so, plus it depends on her height right? [​IMG]

    Yes I have used the floral scent, only 2x though. And not regularly, so I can't say that I saw results. It didn't have the same tingly affect on my scalp as the regular one does.

    You are right, height does play a part. I'm 5'2 and 22" is bra strap for me.

    "Do any of you think, My calculation are corrected, , that is a lot of inches if so"

    I wanted to know about that, What I had said early, Was her growth about 6 inches, for me if I had 3 inches and grow shoulder length in 1 summer that would be 17 inches [​IMG], I wanted to check my calculation for that girl, It is just a guesstament [​IMG]
