Hair Care Product Brand “Salon Selectives” is Back

A popular hair care product brand is back on the market as of March 1st. It is unclear from the press releases how soon it will be available on shelves at your local drug stores. My calls to their media department went unanswered but check www.salonselectives.com which will more than likely list where you can find their products.

Quite frankly I didn’t notice that Salon Selectives was missing from the hair care product scene since 2004. I remember this product from back in the 80′s and it was a popular over-the-counter hair care product.  It had a signature pleasant apple scent aroma, was widely available and was priced right. The Salon Selectives hair care product was the first salon-inspired brand, now of course the market is flooded with competitors.

It seems that the original owners of the brand were Helene Curtis, Inc. The consumer product giant Unilever acquired Helene Curtis in 1996, then in a move that baffles me they took the Salon Selectives brand off the market. It seems the hair care product has a very favorable brand awareness factor that exists to this day.

So a couple of 3 piece suits from Helene Curtis, Inc. got the bright idea to re-launch the hair care product as of March 1st. Their PR claims that they will have a new formula. Lets hope they don’t mess too much with a good thing.

  1. Wow, I’m impressed because I would never even have looked at that bottle. It used to be a soft green color liquid in a clear bottle with basically nothing on the front but a verticle black “salonselectives” on a strip of white background. Thank you and I will look for this product instead of scanning shelves for the ‘old look’

  2. Hi Dee,
    Is this it at Amazon? It doesn’t mention whether it’s scented or not. But, keep I will follow up with a post next week on what I can find out about this.
    Thanks for your question!

  3. Can anyone help this poor girl??? I have not been able to Find SalonSelectives Flexible Hold(unscented, non- aerosol)Finishing Spray at the local stores that I did purchase at in the past in Canada or in the US. The las 6 bottles I bought about 3-4 years ago, was from a store that handles business bankrupt goods and discontinued products so I didn’t know which category the hair spray product fell under. I am now totally OUT of it and am devastated that I can’t find it anywhere. I did find it on line 2 months ago but they did say it was not available on line ‘at that time’, although it did show the right product and did not say it had been discontinued. I can’t even get on the Salon Selectives sight right now, it just says “coming soon”I have tried many other products (gets expensive)and I get dull hair or stiff and flaky or too wet etc. None stands up to the prouct that I used with great satisfaction for so many years and now can’t find. I sure hope you someone can help me locate it or suggest a comparable product. Thank you for any help you can be to me.( I use only unscented, non-aerosol) Got an old one on your bathroom shelf that you’ll part with? lol I’m kidding of course, but if you do………….Thanks. Dee
