Could using the right shampoo save your marriage?
If this tear-jerking advertisement from the Chinese arm of Procter & Gamble promoting their Rejoice shampoo and its magical powers of relationship reconciliation) can be believed then soft, silky hair might be the answer to marriage breakdowns the world over. Having had over 40 million views, the ideas put forward in the advertisement may have some traction.
For the older fashioned of us, however, or perhaps the more cynical, the tried and true approach of counselling and professional assistance may be preferable to a reliance on fragrant toiletries and wistful nostalgia to fix an ailing marriage.
