Yesterday, I was browsing through a few beauty websites and came across an article called, 9 Most Horrifying Beauty Tips Ever.¬† I was shocked to read what women in the 18th century did to maintain their wigs!
Back then, the royals were notorious for having the most ornate and sculpted wigs.¬† To transform these mile-high wigs, they used lard to hold the hair sculptures in place.¬† Thank goodness for Hair Spray.
They also used mixtures of lead, quicklime, sulfur and water to dye their hair and wigs red. This caused nausea, headaches and regular nosebleeds. That’s a high price to pay for some ginger hair if you ask me!
