Don’t open your bag to pay for lotions promising to get back your hair! Just imagine you look like Connery!
The Advertising Standards Council of India, ASCI has caught two sellers of lotions making false claims to bald consumers that they will get back their hair, and has told them to remove their advertisements.
They are both guilty of flouting the Drugs & Magic Remedies Act which forbids making ‘magical promises’ to consumers. Baldness is one of them! Nothing can cure baldness no matter how much the sellers promise you!
. Hair Life India : The advertisement’s claim, “Original hair will return” . The before and after visuals in the advertisement appear to be misleading and imply cure from baldness . These were considered to be, prima facie, in violation of The D&C Rules .
8. Innovative Cure : The advertisement’s claim, “Complete freedom from baldness” was considered to be, prima facie, in violation of The D&C Rules . says the ASCI website!
