I was surprised when I found Victorian recipes for hairspray! 😀 In Victorian times, hairspray was called bandoline which was used to set curls. Victorian hairspray was made with quince seeds, gum arabic or gum tragacanth. Here I tried a Victorian recipe for ‘Rose Bandoline’ made with gum arabic and rosewater.

It’s the first homemade shampoo recipe I tried which is actually better than store-bought shampoo. 😀 And it can’t get easier than this to make shampoo! Continue reading Homemade Easy Egg Shampoo
Because just soap didn’t clean my hair thoroughly, I came up with this natural soda & soap shampoo recipe. It cleans the hair just like store-bought shampoo, and because it’s thickened with starch, it’s easy to distribute in the hair.

I’ve tried out another old homemade shampoo recipe: the 1893 glycerin-lime juice-shampoo. 😀
I read about bran hair wash in an old book: It said that the bran cleans the scalp naturally and makes shiny hair. For the bran shampoo you’ll just need two ingredients; and according to the article, the bran solution can also be used as mild face wash. Continue reading DIY Bran Hair Wash Recipe
A while ago I bought Edwardian-style hairpins made of real horn. Continue reading Edwardian Horn Hairpins
