This Isn’t Your Granddad’s Hair Tonic

* From celebrity hairstylist Vaughn Acord
* Soothes and nourishes both your scalp and hair
* Use prior to styling or “reactivate” for a midday ‘do

Gentlemen, are you fed up with your usual pomade or styling cream? If the answer is yes, then take a look at V76 by Vaughn’s Tonic Hair & Scalp – it’s perfect for whatever ails your hair and scalp.

But what’s tonic?

Long before the existence of mousse, hair spray and lightyears before the introduction of hair gel, there was tonic. Popular in the 50s and 60s, hair tonic was a greaseless alternative to the oils of the day. You know, the kind that would leave a greasy mark wherever your head might rest, like on a couch. Since then, however, it’s fallen by the wayside in favor of a plethora of other hair products.

But it’s seeing something of a reawakening lately with the glut of old school barbershops popping up. And noted celebrity hairstylist Vaughn Acord’s V76 line now offers a hair tonic of his own. A mixture of eucalyptus oil, juniper extract and desert lime (basil, lime, thyme, eucalyptus, ginger and vetiver) keep your scalp and hair nourished and healthy.

Use this tonic to prep your hair before you style it or to give it new life midday. Also worth noting is that V76’s Tonic Hair & Scalp is vegan, gluten and cruelty free, meaning there are no sulfates, paragons, mineral oils, gluten or petroleum. Like we said, this most certainly is not your granddad’s tonic.
