When it come to hair tonic, I am not that fussy. Well I do prefer one that has a spray. So it’s much easier to apply. This one is cooling, as long as you rub it in. I think most tonic will be that way. You have to rub it in to get the effect. No complain about this, at first works wonder. But I feel once your scalp get used to it, it doesn’t work as well. So ya, I haven’t really find one that I really enjoy using.
