Gee, Your Hair Smells Terrific was a popular shampoo in the 1970s and 1980s. Manufactured by the Andrew Jergens Company, the shampoo had a strong floral scent that softened after rinsing and remained in the user's hair for some time.[1] While out of production in the United States, the formula was sold to Vibelle Manufacturing Corporation of Malabon City, Philippines and is currently sold in the Philippines, where it is still popular. It is currently sold by The Vermont Country Store and can be ordered by phone or online.

The product's unusually long name was satirized on The Simpsons. In one episode, Patty Bouvier waxes her upper lip using a product called "Gee, Your Lip Looks Hairless," and in another episode, a sports venue on the show had been named "The Gee Your Hair Smells Terrific Arena."[2]
