Full Answer

The primary ingredient in hair tonic is usually mineral oil or liquid petroleum jelly. Hair tonic gives hair a glossier look. If too much hair tonic is used, it may look greasy. Most hair tonics are liquids, and they can be used to style hair as they hold the hair in place. Hair tonic can improve hair health by adding moisture to the hair and scalp, which reduces split ends. The moisture makes it a good choice for people with dry or fine hair. Hair tonic was popular in the 1950s and 1960s until other products that provided a stronger hold, such as mousses and styling gels, took its place. Hair tonic is smooth, which makes it a good choice for scalp massages. It can also be used for facial hair health and styling. Some hair tonics have different fragrances, such as rosemary mint or sweet almond. Some contain sun screen, and others may promote hair growth and thickness.
