What is hair tonic?
In the 1950’s and 60’s, hair tonics were in most men’s bathrooms. Then, styling gels and mousses hit the mainstream, and hair tonics were relegated to a back shelf and eventually disposed of. Today, hair tonics are experiencing a resurgence as traditional barbering and grooming are back in style.
Hair tonics are usually liquid, and they can be a refreshing addition to your personal grooming routine. Tonics breakdown build up of other hair grooming products without creating weight. Barbers often use tonics as re-wetting agents during a haircut. When applied to wet hair, tonics make clippers and scissors glide easily through the hair for a smoother cut. But what does hair tonic do to your look?
Tonics make the hair look glossy, which is viewed by many people as a sign of healthy hair. They help hold the hair in place, making it easier to style. Other benefits include moisturising dry hair, lubricating a dry scalp, reducing split ends and broken hair, and helping to control dandruff. Lucky Tiger Hair Tonic for men refreshes the hair and skin and is good for massaging the face, scalp, and neck.
Barbers often refer to hair tonics as “friction lotions,” because they can be used to give clients an invigorating scalp massage. This type of massage helps to stimulate blood circulation to the hair follicles, while the tonic moisturises and conditions the hair and scalp.
Lucky Tiger Hair Tonic is modeled on a classic barber formula and even smells like the tonics used in old-fashioned barber shops. The hair tonic grooms your hair, stimulates the scalp and conditions your hair to keep it healthy all day. Made with fine oils to nourish your hair, it’s a great start to keeping your hair how and where you want it.
At Headlines Barbers, we keep our Lucky Tiger Hair Tonic for men in the refrigerator during summer so that scalp massages are brisk, cool and refreshing. Keeping a bottle of tonic in the refrigerator makes a bracing, cooling refresher for scalp and neck massages. However, the tonic does not need to be refrigerated.
Using hair tonic is easy. Just pour a little into your palm, rub hands together, and apply to damp hair. Comb the tonic through the damp hair to distribute the product evenly and then style. You can reactivate the tonic by wetting the hair with more tonic or plain water and then re-combing and restyling.
