Once the main staple of a barbers toolkit, over the years hair tonics started to fall out of favour. Barbers and their clients alike started favouring the use of more modern hair products like gels and mousses. But now, thanks to the growing popularity of vintage grooming products and style, hair tonics are starting to make a come back into the forefront of the male grooming industry in a big way. And this has got all of us at The Modern Man giddy with excitement.

Tonics were largely used at first to give people a little styling control over their hair, which is why they were eventually taken over by-products like gels which offered a much stronger hold. But with vintage style being all the rage you can use them to give yourself a classic slicked back look of controlled parting.

Tonics also hold a host of other benefits that make them a great addition to your hair care kit. Many tonics use a combination of essential oils as apart of their formula. Essential oils such as coconut and chamomile which will nourish the fibres of your hair as well as the scalp, for a look that's healthy as well as slick.

They also enrich you with one of many invigorating scents. From the rich and indulgent aromas of bay leaves soaked in rum, to a refreshing and revitalizing twist of citrus fruits.
