    I like products that work and work well. This ED Pinaud/Clubman product does exactly that. It is non greasy and is lightweight. Once applied you hardly know its in your hair but has excellent holding power. Apply to damp hair and briskly work into hair. Continue rubbing and massaging scalp until the hair starts to feel almost dry. Comb and then brush hair as desired. Brush several times after hair has dried for your desired look. The hold will usually last most of the day but your hair will never show that you have used a tonic for control. This product has a great smell and works well when using the Pinaud/ Clubman Bay Rum aftershave. They really compliment one another. Try it and see for yourself.

    I'm a big fan of the original Clubman aftershave, shampoo and talc. Some of their other products, however, leave me scratching my head. This is one of those...

    First, I must say that as a tonic, this product works just fine and I have no complaints. My hair is buzzed 1 inch in length and I used a tonic daily.

    That being said, the scent is ridiculous. As soon as I took off the cap, I knew I didn't like it. To my nose, there is a note in this product that is also in the Clubman Special Reserve aftershave. If you like the scent of that product, then you will like this. I don't. I used it for 2 weeks so that I would feel as if I was getting some of my money's worth, but then threw it out upon my wife's request. She told me it smelled like potpourri. I don't want to smell like potpourri.

    For me, it's back to Jeris (distributed by Clubman) and a nice manly, barbershop scent. Not available at Drugstore.com, but hopefully in the future?

        Comments about Pinaud Eau de Quinine Regular, Compound Hair Tonic, 12.5 fl oz:

        I got this out of curiosity because I was surprised to see hair tonics still existed and because I've found quinine useful in some other products. Surprise to me that it works so well, better, in fact, than any of the many leave-in conditioners I've tried. Tamed frizz and added some shine to hair. Four days later, my hair hasn't turned oily or limp, which is often the effect of leave-ins for me. I'll think I'll keep using this! BTW, I applied it only once, after shampooing. No need for more. I can't speak to whether it promotes scalp health/hair growth, but will review again in 6 mos. or so when I might know.

                    I love the Clubman product line.
                    This is not hairspray, moose or a gel. It is a hair tonic. Leave the hair with a nice shine and it is suppose to promote scalp and hair health. It has a very lite hold. Works just like it says it will.

                      This is a great, old-fashioned hair tonic. It's not mouse or gel, so hair doesn't get stiff or sticky. It's light, but it seems to make my wavy hair just a little more manageable without having to use anything that makes my hair seem unnatural. And it's got a great barbershop vibe.

                          This stuff burns! Even putting it in your hair and on your scalp and rinsing the excess off it still leaves the hair rather greasy....I guess those using it AFTER showering must like greasy hair or have really dry hair and scalp (my scalp tends to be dry but my hair oily...weird combo--and I bathe daily btw...I do scratch it a lot though). I don't use hairspray, gels or anything like that--just conditioner, so I couldn't imagine having this product on my hair and adding more..ugh. This product may help with dandruff but I'm not sure...haven't used it consistently because of the itchiness and irritation.

                            Had been using generic "Vitalis", tried Clubman, and seems to hold as good if not better without the oiliness. It is perfumed which may bother some, though I don't find it objectionable. I plan to continue using it.
