Shampoo Bottles Are Driving Me Crazy: A Completely Useless Issue In My Life
An Unnessary Complication in My Life
I remember back in the good old days when shampoo bottles and conditioner bottles all sat in the same direction. You simply popped the top of the bottles and used the product inside. Those were easy days. Simple days. Yet now, companies have decided to complicate my life. Most companies have now created the conditioner bottle so it opens at the bottom. Ummm... why?
Is it really that much more difficult to get the conditioner to come out of the bottle rather than shampoo? Don't get me wrong, I know squeezing all of the conditioner out of the bottle can be a challenge at times. I have felt this struggle. You are in the shower and it is hot and steamy. The bottle is slipping out of your hands. You just want to have well-conditioned hair! Yet, it so tough getting out the last bit of conditioner. Do you know what is equally difficult to get out of the bottle? SHAMPOO!
Why Not Shampoo, Too?
What did the shampoo do that was so wrong that it doesn't deserve its own fancy, upside down bottle? I daresay it is similar to the easy-squeeze ketchup bottles that are upside down. So why should I suffer, unable to squeeze out that last bit of shampoo when I can easily have access to all the hair conditioner and ketchup I want? (Just not at the same time... usually.)
I personally believe the shampoo deserves the same treatment the conditioner gets. It is completely unfair to allow one product its own snazzy bottle and not the other. It also causes other issues when organizing bathroom products.
OK, so perhaps this is a little obsessive, but I like my bottles to all face the same direction. With the cap at the bottom of the conditioner, but at the top of the shampoo bottle, they never quite look like a matching set.
If I turn the shampoo bottle upside down (gasp!), then all the words and instructions (that I totally need, of course) are upside down as well. This at least allows the shampoo and the conditioner to look similar because the caps now match. However, the words being upright on one, yet upside down on the other bottle is simply unacceptable.
Now, if I keep the bottles sitting the way the manufacturer intended, then yes, the words all appear normal. However, one cap is up and one cap is down. Furthermore, I have problems getting the shampoo to actually come out the bottle. I can't win!
A Plea to Shampoo Companies
If you are the manufacturer of these shampoo and conditioner bottles (and you know who you are Fructis, Herbal Essences, Suave... to name a few), please consider the sanity (or lack of sanity) of the customers that so desperately want beautiful hair, yet they want their bottles to look alike.
I realize there are many other important issues out there I could be tackling right now, but that would take research and effort on my part. Instead, I would like to begin my one-woman crusade to make shampoo and conditioner bottles conform to look the same. I am really not picky about how this is achieved either. Put the caps on both bottles at the top or both at the bottom, but just have them the look same. I just want to easily get shampoo and conditioner out the bottles for my hair. Thanks!
