Timotei shampoo and conditioner

Timotei is a shampoo brand owned by Unilever. The word Timotei comes from a wild grass called Timothy-grass. The Timotei brand was conceived and designed by Lintas Helsinki in Finland in the early 1970s.[1] Timotei shampoo was launched in Sweden in the 1970s, and introduced to the world in the mid 1980s, but some countries only sold Timotei for a short period. The tagline was 'So mild you can wash your hair as often as you like'.

Media[edit]

Timotei was featured in the anime Lucky Star, episode 6. The character Konata jokingly makes a reference to a Timotei commercial, and is disappointed with her friends' confusion, contrary to Yui's reaction.
