But in the TV commercials they pronounced it "no tears" as in no crying, and depicted kids wiping it away from their eyes with no problem.

And in French the translation is 'ne pique pas les yeux' which means it does not itch the eyes... So I also think tears means crying here.

As everyone has pointed out - it is supposed to be "no tears" like, liquid from your eyes. That's how they said it in the advertisement. Also, I'm guessing it's simply not as strong as "adult" shampoo but still wasn't meant to go straight into your eyes.

Kristi Zoebelein

I'll google it for you.....""No more tears" shampoos gain that effect from the nature of the chemicals used in their formulation, which trade off cleansing ability for mildness. Mainstream shampoos generally contain lauryl sulfates that irritate the eyes and scalp but also leave hair very, very clean. Baby shampoos instead use long chain surfactants (which are far less efficient in emulsifying oil from hair) or they include an ionic polymer in the formulation, either of which helps prevent the product from stinging when it gets into the eyes.

It is tears as in crying. Tears (as in tears in your clothing) is pronounced differently. But I don't think they were ready for the Jr. Myth Busters to come along and pour it directly into the eye.

It IS 'No Tears' as in crying for pete's sake. It is not in question. Stop trying to make this alternate bullshit happen. No more tears - water coming from your eyes - marketed for children's shampoo because kids are dumb and don't close their eyes when you rinse their hair. My god, you are a bunch of animals.

I've seen this a few times, and each time I see it, people comment, like they are here, and like I'm about to. It's no tears as in from your eyes. If this person, having their mind blown, spoke any language besides English, they would know this. Just because tears are written before knots and split ends, doesn't mean they relate to hair. Who's hair tears away anyway?

I think it means no tears and is no crying because to say no split ends AND no tears would mean it to be basically a redundant double entendre - BUT, I think in this way - being tears is spelt the same way with different pronounciaton and meaning it pretty much just covers their proverbial asses!

This is a little too simplistic and doesn't accurately describe anything. Pumpkins and zucchini are squash but can technically be considered fruit. But then again so are beans, corn, coffee, and cucumbers. Strawberries, blackberries, and raspberries are aggregate fruits. Bananas, coffee, pistachios, peaches, and olives are drupes. Well....technically coffee is the pit of the coffee fruit....but still weird. Basically if you are eating the STRUCTURE of a plant, then it is a vegetable. Celery is the stalk, carrots are the roots, lettuce is the leaves...and so on. If the plant produces flowers through pollination, the result is a fruit regardless of what it looks like or how it tastes. Science is cool.
