BRAND: Jack Dean
PRODUCTS: Hair Tonic
With a return to traditional barbering and grooming techniques, hair tonics are enjoying something of a revival. Hair tonic in the past had usually been classed as an “old school” hair styling product as the oils in the hair tonic also help hold the hair in place, making it easier to style, but is now really commonly known now for its lubricating qualities during massaging of the scalp.
Jack Dean Eau de Quinine classic hair tonic with moisturising macadamia oil is formulated to stimulate and invigorate the scalp. Quinine has a floral aroma combining jasmine, lily of the valley and macadamia with citrus and vanilla notes.
The 250ml bottle is a nice size for regular placement on barbershop shelves and easy to hold when you have wet hands while practising your head massage treatments.
At the barbers, hair tonics are also often referred to as “friction lotions” because they can be used to give clients an invigorating scalp massage. Massage helps to stimulate blood circulation to the hair follicles, while the tonic itself moisturises and conditions the hair and scalp. As a head massage specialist i found a generous amount of Jack Dean hair tonic applied at the beginning of a treatment provided a nice lubricant and aroma throughout the 15 minutes of vigorous stimulation towards the scalp and neck without re application.
Personally i love the Jack Dean range of classic hair tonics and my clients have also benefited, they regularly comment on the moisture added to dry hair and scalp along with the traditional scent that stays with them most of the day.
