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.
Ahh, I see...thanks

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
