Lineblogging: Masses Gather for Saks Shampoo Swap

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

All day, Saks Fifth Avenue is offering a full-sized bottle of Frédéric Fekkai's new shampoo—that would be Fekkai Advanced—to anyone who brings in a bottle of their own shampoo. Doesn't matter what's left in the tube: If it was once a full-sized shampoo container, you can trade it in. Naturally, this caused quite a scene on Fifth Avenue around lunchtime. The deal goes through the evening, and we're guessing the after-work crowds will be just as bad.
