Ok, I’ll try again... Un bon pour les cheveux shampooing.

To me this reads as “a voucher for hair shampoo” and I don’t see how the syntax is incorrect... unless “Bon” is supposed to be an adjective and not a noun.

I’m very confused!?

This question relates to:
French lesson "Adjectives usually go AFTER nouns (adjective position)"

I guess you have to parse it differently: it is actually un bon shampooing pour les cheveux.

Hi karl, 

I cannot find the context but if it was a voucher (un bon) it would be :

Un bon pour un shampooing...

Hope this helps!

I think the point that is being taught here is that adjectives, even short adjectives like bon, are placed after the noun if they have a complement, i.e. "bon pour les cheveux". So it should be:

un shampooing bon pour les cheveux
