Hotel Shampoo

When it comes to hotel shampoos, hotels seem to generally offer upscale brands. Perhaps they get a deal from shampoo companies who see hotels as a great marketing opportunity? Not sure. All I know is they generally stock stuff that is not referred to as “product” by hair salons.
But this week, the hotel I stayed at had White Rain shampoo, which is certainly not considered top-shelf. In fact, if shelves went below ground level in stores, that’s probably where White Rain would be shelved.

Given no choice, I lathered, rinsed, & repeated (except for the repeat part) with White Rain. Imagine my surprise when my hair looked as awesome as usual, if not more! Here’s a shot of Ben raving about my White Rain treated bouffant:


Damn, my hair looks great.

Around 20 hours after the above photo was taken, and after one treatment with my usual home shampoo, here’s Ben’s take documented on a camera phone:

So, while I’m a White Rain convert, actually bringing White Rain into the Kohler household may be a difficult task. Some household members may suggest that I’m not much of an authority on soap related matters, which is ironic considering that I worked for a soap company for three years. More as this story develops . . .

  1. Okay, maybe you can help me out.
    I recently stayed at The Eliot Suite Hotel in Boston. They had the most luxurious shampoo and conditioner I’ve ever tried! It is French, called “Damana”. I’ve been searching and searching the web for this product without luck.

    Please help!

    Thanks, Betsy

  2. Ik mocht in een hotel in Belgie kennismaken met de produkten van Damana.
    Weet iemand of deze ook in Nederland te krijgen zijn?

    Tot horens,

  3. This is the best shampoo I ever used too. Did anyone figure out where to buy it in the US? The company’s website has no shampoo, only the conditioner.

  4. Hey

    Annelise, heb je het ondertussen al gevonden?
    Ik ben zelf van België en heb op hotel ook het product Damana leren kennen…
    helaas nergens te vinden in België.
    En die website van de US, daar kan je niet op bestellen als buitenlander 🙁



  5. I love Damana shampoo too, contacted company which does offer sales in US. But, it’s quite pricy, they offer me a case which contains 240 x 40ml Damana Earth and Sun shampoo at USD265.00.

    Just wondering anyone else got any luck?
