“This hair tonic was developed by the founder of Weleda, Dr Rudolf Steiner back in 1921. It continues to be one of their bestsellers for anyone with thinning hair looking to build more growth and body. It claims to strengthen hair, invigorate the scalp and nourish hair roots.
This tonic is a water and alcohol base with natural extracts of stonecrop, horseradish and rosemary oil. It smells fresh and you can smell the extracts which is pleasant, however it’s not scented in a way that you’d be aware of a new smell in your hair all day which is nice.
The tonic is to be massaged into the scalp every morning and evening and not to be rinsed out. I was a bit worried that this might make my hair look greasy, however, it isn’t greasy at all and the alcohol assures there is no oily residue. I must say, the act of massaging your scalp is really nice and something that I should do more of in general. I can see how this action alone could encourage blood circulation and better hair growth.
I really like this product and will continue to use it. I haven’t been using it long enough to notice a change in growth as I think it is something that you’d notice over a fair few months. Still, it feels invigorating and like it has real potential for results. Weleda claim to have had an expert assessment done on this product over 90 days with the result of 33% less hair loss.
A lovely non-toxic way to invigorate the scalp and potentially naturally thicken your hair.”
“This is a lovely refreshing tonic for your hair. I found it hard to apply and would like to see it in a spray or roll on. But it was worth putting it on. I felt my hair was benefiting from it. Look forward to seeing how it works after a few months of use.

“It’s difficult to give this product an earnest review in such a short time frame because any benefits to my hair and scalp will most likely reveal themselves over time. In the few weeks I’ve been using it, I’ve massaged a few drops into my scalp morning and night. The scent is lovely (I’m a big fan of rosemary as a food ingredient so why not sprinkle it on my head?) and l love the green medicine bottle – looks great on my bathroom shelf. I’m looking forward to seeing long-term results here because I sadly shed my fair share of hair after bub #2 and have all these tufts of soft baby down coming through now. So yeah, setting the intention here – that this tonic brings on stronger, healthier hair for 2020🤞🏽!”
“This formula is perfect for treating the hair & scalp without making it greasy. You can apply this at any time of the day, even if you’d washed, dried & styled your hair, it’s concentrated so only a few drops are needed to condition the scalp, perfect for treating a dry scalp & do away with white scalp flakes. It contains Rosemary Essential Oil which is revered for its ability to stimulate hair growth, other extracts include Horse Radish that is effective in preventing hair loss by working to regenerate the hair roots. Highly recommended!”
“Used with all of Weleda hair products and I can really see and feel the difference. Having the time to use day and night at the moment is a little hard but all in all a great product.”
