"WHICH BRECK SHAMPOO IS BEST FOR YOU?"
One of the first liquid shampoos in the United States was developed by Dr. John H. Breck and marketed by his son, registered pharmacist, Edward J. Breck. The Shampoo? An identifiable icon and household name...Breck!
Hair and scalp specialist, Dr. John H. Breck (June 5, 1877 – February 1965) was also the founder of John H. Breck Inc., located in Springfield Massachusetts. The Company, originally established in 1908, produced sundry creams and tonics. The good Dr. Breck, himself, was plagued with hair loss from a very early age and continually sought ways to develop a product to resolve his own baldness. Through his search, Breck launched his Company. (Breck never did discover a cure for his eventual baldness.)
