About the Campaign

The "Life Can't Wait" Campaign launched during the broadcast of Super
Bowl XLII on February 3 with a spot that featured three of the world's most

born from the global insight that hair, more than any other physical
attribute, plays a crucial role in a girl's power of transformation and
self expression. Research conducted in six countries with 3,000 women
revealed the universal truth that twenty-something women find having "good"
hair can be a trigger for seizing opportunities.
