I read on another forum that Clairol have put out an advertisement for Herbal Essences shampoo that shows a nurse in uniform, learning over a patient's bed, who sees the shampoo, and ends up washing... Read More

    You know, this thread makes me think about how much I loved watching that commercial of all the women watching the sexy construction worker drink his coke. Guess I shouldn't have enjoyed it, huh?

    Oh, I forgot. That was before people started taking themselves so seriously and demanding political correctness on the part of others while they wallowed in self-righteous indignation.

    The pts we know are (for the most part) well aware of the fact we don't wash our hair on duty, unless something really icky gets in it, then I personally will reach for the antimicrobial hand wash and NOT Herbal Essences for my hair. Talk about a bad hair day. I just laugh at them thinking "yea, right" and buy Panteen.

    When something of that magnitude becomes offensive I would boycott their products all together. WE are the consumer who has the mighty dollar. I don't support any products that harm animals destroy the rain forest. I wish there was a list of companies that did it would cut my shopping down immensley. It is a shame they still protray nurses as dumb and ditzy when it is further from the truth.

    Really dumb marketing move. Nursing has more employees than any other profession in the U.S. You think I'm gonna buy that shampoo? Not a chance. LOL
    I remember when Northern "quilted" toilet paper had a commercial showing ladies knitting the toilet paper and called it quilting. They received tons of mail about it and have since changed the commercial.
    Really tired of the sexy nurse image. I'm old and fat and tired. lol
    But a great nurse!

    I just saw this comercial today. I love how they show the nurse sitting there staring at the patient looking at her watch. Please tell me what nurse ever has time to sit and stare at a patient. Is it just me or do nurses on TV get portrayed more as CNAs Than RNs? The public really has no idea what we really do and how educated we really are. They usually show nurses sitting around talking or emtying a bed pan or giving a bath. Just my thoughts. Sorry went a little overboard.
