Vaseline hair tonic was a substance used to grease the hair of young adolescent males in the 1950s, creating fashionable styles.

Marty McFly was asked by Emmett Brown to wear some to fit in with the crowds at Hill Valley High School. However, Marty was reluctant to do so at first as he didn't know what was in the tonic and that it might give him cancer.

When Marty asked why Doc didn't wear it, Doc explained that it was "also very flammable".
