Whether you're concerned with hair loss, a dry scalp or dandruff, taking care of your hair doesn't have to be difficult! Just like our skin, everybody has different hair care needs, which can be problematic with so many products to choose from! One of my favourite hair care products (that tackles many issues at once), is the Weleda Hair Tonic. It's actually one of Weleda's oldest products which has stood the test of time! It's natural, gentle and I love recommending it to both men and women!
What haircare issues can the Weleda Hair Tonic solve?
Do you find that your regular hair routine leaves your hair and scalp feeling dry? Maybe you're noticing dry, flaky skin on your scalp? The Weleda hair tonic works to nourish the scalp and supply all the nutrients it needs to remain healthy. It's ideal for hair that has been damaged after being bleached, permed or overexposed to heat styling tools! It conditions the hair from the roots to strengthen the hair shaft.1 This hair tonic is also great for anyone concerned with thinning hair, as it uses natural extracts to tackle the cause and build more growth naturally.1
What ingredients make up this hard working product?
When it comes to hair treatments, they can be typically high maintenance. That's not the case with the Weleda Hair Tonic which has a water like consistency and can be left in. It contains lightweight ingredients to nourish the scalp without causing a hassle.
Weleda's hair tonic has been helping customers since 1921 with its natural formulation of ingredients including stonecrop, horseradish and rosemary oil extracts. Rosemary oil benefits hair growth as it's known to help stimulate circulation and promote blood flow to the treated area.1 Rosemary oil is able to do this as it stimulates cell division, dilates blood vessels and works to produce new hair growth.2 Horseradish is another fantastic ingredient for stimulating hair growth and conditioning the scalp to help fight dry scalp conditions like dandruff.3
What have the studies shown?
Weleda hair tonic has demonstrated some seriously impressive results! In a self assessment study, results showed that participants saw a 65% increase in hair strength over 90 days.1 In an expert assessed study, results showed a 33% reduce in hair loss after 90 days.
How/ when to use this product?
This non oily, dermatologically tested product can be used every morning and evening. Simply massage into the scalp and do not rinse. You can apply it either after washing hair or apply it on dry hair and leave on.
Haircare tips and tricks
To promote a healthier scalp and hair, there are a few holistic ways to do this! The first is regular brushing... do it daily! Before washing your hair, massage a treatment oil into the ends and leave on for a few minutes to soak in. When washing your hair, massage your scalp to stimulate blood flow. Drying your hair too often can cause damage, so try to air dry (or towel dry) as much as possible before applying heat. A final step is to massage an oil into your hair to invigorate your scalp! The Weleda hair tonic is perfect for this!
If you are pregnant, I recommend seeking advice from your healthcare professional before using this product.
