Do You Use "Product" or "Products"?

Do You Use "Product" or "Products"?

Is there any product in your hair... or are there any products? Stylists seem to favor the singular, and I sometimes find myself using that singular form after leaving the salon. Even when referring to multiple items – are you a grammar stickler (plural for plural), or are you siding with the stylists?

My sister is a stylist, so I say product, and I get over its weirdness by thinking of it as the equivalent of "stuff".

I mix a little bit hair wax with Kiehl's Silk Groom Serum. It makes my hair stay in shape and smooths the texture.

This is the only case I allow myself to say product when referring to either one or many, otherwise I'm a stickler for proper grammar.

Product.It is not improper grammar if you use the Singular vs. Plural rule as it applies to the word group.When the group is being considered as a whole, it can be treated as a single entity: “the group was ready to go on stage.” But when the individuality of its members is being emphasized, “group” is plural: “the group were in disagreement about where to go for dinner.”

I don't like calling it "product". It just sounds elitist and generic to me. Why not just call it by it's matter state: gel, hairspray, mousse, goop, chemicals.... it's all the same.
