"Product" watch (that is "product" in the way that hair-salon people use the word)

I bought some herbal essences shimmery nights "shimmery spray gel," because I cannot resist glittery things that cost less than $10. However, the package claims that this hair product contains "a fusion of diamond dust and champagne." I am HIGHLY suspicious of this advertising claim. Other "fusions" (by which they may mean "infusions") that could spice up hair products and make for glamorous-sounding packaging:

  • yellow stars, blue diamonds, green clovers, and pink hearts
  • ground-up shark fin
  • money
  • artificially inseminated human ova
  • O- blood
  • shredded stocks and bonds
  • strawberries
  • Ben & Jerry's ice cream
  • essence of dolphin
  • actual swarovski crystals
  • cognac
  • vanilla essential oil
