Have you ever walked in a Thai market and seen bottles of well known brands of shampoo, hair conditioner and shower cream going cheap? Big bottles for 89 baht.

crap hair productsEver compared the prices to those in the big stores and not been able to resist when the seller says they are cheap because they came direct from the factory?

Well these pictures show what you are getting for your money. A gloopy concoction thrown together in a backstreet house and stirred with an old wooden oar in a grubby bucket, reports Manager Online.

No matter whether it is Dove, Clear, Head and Shoulders, Pantene, Sunsilk or L’oreal it is all the same oily mixture put into old bottles bought from recyclers who collect such things.

Then given the “professional” touch of plastic covering sealed with heat treatment from an old hair dryer.

Still want to buy?

The pictures of the fake products factory in a house in Tha Maprang district of Saraburi were posted on Facebook under the name of Rich Infinity. They are thought to emanate from a police investigator.

There is thought to be a husband and wife team involved in the scam and police raided the house following complaints from the companies who own the copyright to the real products. The homemade cosmetic team are believed to have been out at the time of the raid.

Posters online had a field day relating their anecdotes about being enticed to buy such cheap products in markets.
