It’s got a little cooler here recently in Japan… how’s the weather where you are? The product I’m introducing today is the Yanagiya Hair Tonic, which is famous for its green boxed packaging. This product was launched in 1952 and has become a trusted long seller with many devoted customers today!

Packaging of Yanagiya Hair Tonic
I took a picture of the front and back of the bottle.
Unusually for products these days, there’s nothing printed on the back. I think that’s quite refreshing!!
The lid is plug-shaped to prevent any leakage.
Wow!! This is unusual!! The product is actually green as well.
When I poured it out I didn’t really notice any tingling or scent, but the scent did linger after I washed my hands. I feel like the tingling did last a while as well…
How To Use
The usage directions for Yanagiya Hair Tonic are the same as any other regular hair tonic. Here’s where my husband makes his appearance!
1. Apply to the scalp two or three times daily
2. Massage well with fingertips, avoiding scratching the scalp with the nails.
＊ If applying after washing your hair, make sure to remove any excess moisture before using.
I think it’s a good idea to use Yanagiya Hair Tonic three times a day: once morning, noon, and night!
From my husband, the test subject…
There’s no real tingling when you apply it or massage it in, but after you’ve finished massaging a fresh feeling gradually builds up, so I think this product would be fine in the winter!
It’s got a herbal scent, but it’s not very strong. If anything the scent is on the weak side.
The fresh feeling has more staying power than other products.
It doesn’t start feeling fresh until after you’re finished massaging, so I used more than I thought I had!
The scent is faint so it doesn’t really bother me personally, but I think there might be people who dislike herbal scents like this.
Personally, I think the green color is a bit weird!
So, always, those are my husband’s impressions of the Yanagiya Hair Tonic.
One thing I forgot to mention, the bottle’s opening is quite fine, so you don’t need to worry about it dripping or dispensing too much product.
Whether you’re doing something for health or beauty, there are lots of things that show results if you actually stick with it! But when you start using something, you often choose by the scent or feel. I haven’t used Yanagiya Hair Tonic personally, but looking at what my husband said, he didn’t mind the smell, and it seemed easy to use.
From my point of view, this has been a familiar scent to me for a long time… you can take that however you like! (^_−)−☆
I recommend Yanagiya Hair Tonic for those who are experiencing hair loss or are thinking about investing in grooming products for their scalp!
