Right before director Greydon Clark did "Satan's Cheerleaders", he made this 1976 violent blaxploitation cheese ball about a salon owner/gigolo, Mr. Johnathan (John Daniels, who looks like a smaller, african american Lou Ferrigno) getting revenge on the white mobsters who kidnap his secretary/girlfriend, beat up his gay hairdressers and trash his salon. This has plenty of cheezy acting, especially from the stereotypical gay hairdressers. The film is definitely not boring, except for some romantic 70s montages in the middle. There's plenty of sex, nudity, and violence resulting in a conclusion that involves chainsaw mutilations and a pool cue impaling! It shouldn't dramatically disappoint fans of the genre, but don't expect laughs like the Dolemite films. After you see it once, you probably won't come back to it. Its good for a cheap rental on bad 70s night. Black Shampoo goes mostly for a serious tone, although it has problems staying there. How serious can you take an angry hairdresser?

I'm all into those black explotation films and this is another one.. but if you're into those then you will enjoy this movie.. Funny at the end of the movie like nowdays they have the interviews with the cast well it looks like back in the day, maybe that wasn't possible this movie has a transcript of an interview with cast members.. Maybe money was tight.. :)

A blaxploitation movie that did not receive as much notoriety as Shaft, Superfly or the Mack.Rightfully so!!!!!!
Not as memorable as they were. Low budget, forgetable soundtrack.
Only bright spot, some comedic relief from two members of the supporting cast.
Recommended for anyone who is a staunch lover of the Blaxploitation era, otherwise not worth your time.

They sure don't make 'em like this anymore. "Black Shampoo" is a hilariously cheesy exploitation film from 1976 starring John Daniels as Jonathan, a muscular hairdresser who is popular with the ladies. The trouble starts when his new receptionist, Brenda (Tanya Boyd,) turns out to have very disenfranchised mob ties. Hilarious editing and mobster caricatures (seriously, these have to be the worst mobsters ever,) along with unbelievably bad acting make this an oddly entertaining movie. Also noteworthy are the amazing seventies hair and wardrobe: watch particularly for Artie (Skip E. Lowe) the stereotypical stylist in the most astounding pants I have ever seen. I am still stunned by the otherworldly cookout scene (think "Hee Haw on LSD.") After poor Artie suffers third degree burns from a curling iron in the worst way imaginable, it's revenge time. Although you might think that a chainsaw would be a poor choice as a stealthy weapon, and while many would speculate that bringing a chainsaw to a gun fight might be ill-advised, "Black Shampoo" corrects those misconceptions with gleeful abandon. If you enjoy lots of driving around and running through the woods, you have a treat in store here; otherwise you may find this to be occasionally bloated in the running time department. Worthy of special notoriety here is Joe Ortiz as Mr. Wilson, resident mob boss and by far the perpetrator of the worst performance in the film. (Your ribs may ache from the laughing.)

The DVD has a lot of extras including interviews with John Daniels and Tanya Boyd that I enjoyed, trailers, behind the scenes photos, deleted scenes, and a commentary track with director Greydon "Satan's Cheerleaders" Clark, which I found interesting and enjoyable.

I am also collecting the black movies of the 70's - in this case Black Shampoo. I will give the condensed review; Good nudity (check out the 2 PAWG in the pool scene) and sexual innuendo, bad everything else. I knew it was bad going in but I figured it would at least have some over the top acting and comedic elements - the good news is, it had both. The bad news is, the over the top acting and comedic elements were terrible (even if by design). Get if for your collection if you so desire but be warned Black Shampoo needs a perm (and that's a good line compared to what you get in this lame excuse for a blaxploitation film).

First 1/2 of the movie shows our hero going from bed to bed to couch to chaise lounge to pool to house to bed as a hair dresser that EVERY woman wants. After some bad guys come after the new receptionist, he falls for her & goes after them. Blaxploitation movie at it's finest. Tons of fun.

Though I am a fan of blaxploitation movies and I am collecting them all Black Shampoo was nothing short of watching a soft core porn, bad acting and all. Though for me, blaxploitation movies are all about the bad acting and just looking at how far the directors went to make a movie. This movie is indeed "exploitation". With scences often having the main character "whoring" himself out to women and us often getting a flash of skin every other second this movie is indeed soft core porn. But for its worth it definitely entertaining 1 time and that's the first time you watch it. If you are looking for a rare movie of blaxploitation I reccommend this "jewel" but if you are looking for a "movie that goes beyond mildly enteraining" look elsewhere from Johnny's tight white pants.
