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.

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 ) 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.

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 .

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

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. When I opened the jar in the store, someone a couple of feet away said, "What's that smell?" I can't imagine anyone lasting three days with this stuff in her hair. 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. 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 ] 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, , that is 17 inches, and I am 5'6. it would be alot less if I was shorter I think Is that possible .What age was she? Does anyone know how often I should use it, and how it works?
