Why Do They Join To Save Their Wigs?

In A Description Of City Shower, the Brithish poet Jonathan Swift wrote, “ Forget their feuds, and join to save their wigs.” Why did people join to save their wigs? Was there any secret in their wigs? Here you may have the same questions with me. As we all know, people wore deep wave wigs in the 18th century. But why did they care about their wigs so much in rainy days? It is time to tell the truth to you. Let’s read the following part together.


Wig powders: the secret of wigs

In the 18th century, wig powders were used to change the colors of wigs. Most of powders were made from flour, pounce, kaolin or other things. One of the raw materials, pounce, was a powder made from cuttlefish bones. Because the color of these raw materials was white, human hair wigs were white or off-white greyish at that time. But there were few wigs which were pink or red. It is believed that the British army in the George II’s period consumed 65,000 tons of flour as wig powders to paint their wigs every year. Although wig powders were useful, they would be sticky after being wet because they contained starch. So there is no doubt that Jonathan Swift would write down such poem to describe the embarrassment of gentlemen who were wearing wigs. However, in the 1800, due to the heavy tax, wig powders were no longer used by people.


Wig powders were gone, but wigs are still there
