In the 18th century, people loved wearing long and heavy human hair wigs, such as deep wave wigs. But wearing wigs was not as comfortable as that at present. As a result, people invented some useful tools to relieve this uncomfortable feeling and to satisfy their need of changing personal styles with one wig. Today, we are going to introduce two of these tools to you. They are wig powders and wig scratchers.
In the 18th century, people preferred white human hair wigs, which brought about the invention of wig powders. Wig powders were made from flour, pounce, plaster of paris or talc, which were white or off-white greyish in colour. But before these materials were discovered, potato flour was used to powder wigs. It is said that parliamentarians in England used it as a wig powder in the beginning. Among these materials of wig powders, ground flour was the most common one. According to statistics, soldiers in the period of George II consumed over 60,000 tons of flour every year to powder their wigs.
A wig scratcher includes a long thin stick and a small ivory hand at one end. This tool was used to help people relieve the itching feeling of wearing heavy wigs. It was not easy to clean wigs, which caused some problems, such as fleas. And human fingers were too large to enter into the internal side of wigs. Thus, wig scratchers were invented by craftsmen to help people solve this problem. People in the 18th century could push scratchers into their wigs and send them to the place where they were needed.
Gone but momerable
Wig powders and wig scratchers were no longer used nowadays. Thanks to the development of manufacture process, you are able to wear human hair wigs comfortably and enjoy their benefits entirely. Also, you don’t need to powder wigs by yourself unless you want to because the cost of making a wig has been greatly reduced. Go to Kameymall and choose wigs for yourself or others. They are very great!
