    These advertisements make them exaggerate their normalcy and make them look extraordinary and while taking away our money.

    I had the same experience with Complan, coz when I was in Gr.7 or 8, I was pretty much short. I insisted on buying it so that I would grow taller. And the same goes for Horlicks for intelligence.
    Now thinking about it, starting from my tooth paste to the brand of sandals I wear, everything is overpaid and over-rated. We switch from one average stuff to another seeking a change, which happens hardly.
    And the hair oils, don'r even start on it. But now I've given up on switching and settled for simple coconut oil. Not a difference. but saved a hella lot of money.
    Yeah I think everyone affected by over exposure advertisements. Best advertisement is a customer “Satisfaction”. Over exposure advertisements give small profits but it’s not give a long life for the business.

    There are some marketing people at super market they are try to convince people with some free stuffs At the moment we can’t think our self they influence us to buy that one then we realize it’s waste of money.

    Exactly! They make us buy things we didn't even know we wanted before.

    Most of the advertisements not only describe the purpose of the product they elaborate that without the product we couldn’t live. Advertising is not a bad thing but those advertisements should make sense and it’s should be realistic.
    Same thing happened to me as well , After watching television ad I bought "fair& lovely no marks" cream instead of reducing my acne marks it made my skin tone even more darker


    So basically, you two are losing hair ( you had it already?) and want to get it back right ? Instead of wasting for such oil's why can't you just go with artificial hair implant ? It's cheap and permanent though

    The problem is that we allow advertisers to have access to our mental world. They have paid for the opportunity to slip information to us about what feels good.
