Holiday Shopping: Hair Powder

Lucy at IndiePerfumes has just doomed me to spend more holiday money on myself!  Thanks a lot lady! What am I buying now??

Hair powder by Lulu Organics!  The tag line here is "a light powder for hair on days unwashed."  The products are all natural, and it is offered in 4 different scents.  These little containers have 4oz of light hair powder that you can just throw on in the morning, smooth in and go!  Now the recommended amount of powder is 'a dime size amount' so, of course do not get crazy with the bellows-unless that is the look you are going for!

But for my own use, they are excellent because they are also sold in travel size! So to have something I can throw in my purse and guarantee a far more clean look the day after my red-eye is ideal!  (you can get the travel size ones here)

The only problem is choosing the right scent.  Initially I would want anything that smells as nice as "Cyprian-a powdered wig scent" from the Scented Court Collection. Here are the choices:
Lavender and Clary Sage
Patchouli and Amber
Jasmine
Tuberose
If you are going for 18th century, I first suggest Tuberose and Lavender & Cary Sage.

  1. Wow, now I see. I am suspecting these may be dry shampoos -- like if you didn't wash your hair you can refresh the look kind of thing, dust it in, brush it out...
    Still, a good idea. I bet you could use the bellows to create the proper 18th century full powdered look, too.

    Sorry for more must haves at a financially trying time of year! I know the feeling!

  2. I am a big fan of hair powder. I have bangs now, and to keep them fresh I'll usually brush some powder across my hairline and on my forehead. Never underestimate the power of powder!

  4. I love powder too for those in-between wash days. I use Klorane and it has a fabulous clean fresh scent. But these with different fragrances sound wonderful. Thanks:)

  5. Has anyone been searching for a really affordable, NEW, excellent quality ladies' Georgian (a la Duchess) wig???
    I found one in the UK, and wear it to all our 18thc events! It is gorgeous, and garners compliments all the time. I purchased ONE more to sell on my website, and it is up now, and for sale. I cannot get another, and this really is a superb wig. If interested, please visit my website, www.thecountryladyantiques.com, and click onto the OFFERINGS page.
