The dry shampoo was used between monthly washings. The liquid was used on a sponge or cloth to freshen up the oilier areas. So a bit like using cleaning fluid on a dirty area of clothing like a coat rather than immersing the whole garment in water.

Cochineal is a type of insect. Soooo tincture of dead bug (usually dried and ground) would be required for the dry shampoo. Cochineal insects are also what the red colored dye carmine is derived from. It's used in food and drinks to this day!

Country tips, centuries old and mistranslated, for Urban "ladies" of leisure. 5:35 Hydrogen peroxide, you don't know it? Ever heard the term Peroxide Blond? That's where it comes from. US ladies used it to become blonds , supposedly. IDK about the results though.

Wash your hair once a month. 🤯😳😵

Fyi, Bernadette Banner did an egg shampoo experiment video, using an old recipe (It was sponsored by a wet shampoo) Also, any acid over time will deteriorate skin, hair, natural fiber, etc... is what I hear. Rubbing lemons on the skin makes me think of a very sorrowful scene featuring the lab tech from CSI It is my amateur opinion/ memory surfacing: tea is also an acid, although a mild one, over time, it will probably break down the hair shaft. Written from Memory... "Peroxide of Hydrogen" Is probably "hydrogen peroxide". It is a bleaching and cleansing agent, often used to remove bloodstains and purify/sanitize wounds. Something in it reacts to the blood and fizzes whereverit is present. Also, something in has a different or related chemical reaction with blood, and will mildly cauterize a small wound. So, it leaves scars, if you're prone to them. Peroxide, the bleach part, was very common in the early 1900's, as a hair bleach (Chicago, the film, shows it being used). Bleaches can harm your skin & scalp, please use with caution! Yes, holding the hair over any heat source may dry it faster. If you are careful! If you are not careful, you may singe or burn your hair, or anything it is near. Both I, and someone I know, have had hair drying emergencies, and stood over radiators drying our hair. Don't let the hair touch the radiator. Pay close attention as it is working. People used to drape all sorts of things over a radiator to dry them.... it is **dangerous**. Please don't do it.

Nowadays it seems really weird that people used to wash their hair once a month but it is only so because the shampoos we use are made so that our scalps reject more oil and make us purchase more shampoos

Eggs is like conditioner, they’re great for the hair as it has proteins that your hair needs most. Then rinse it out with running water.

Dear Karolina, you look stunning as always and you are inspiration for me.I would say that egg shampoo is the best. I have natural extremely soft curly hair and I have to avoid harsh chemicals so this is one option to wash my hair, and trust me it wash out oils better than any shampoo, and yes I wash my hair once for week or 9 days

The Mammy and Scarlett quote about freckles is at 1:30 of this clip. She wants Scarlett to wear a shawl to prevent freckles which Mammy had to put BUTTERMILK on (not lemon juice!). This was the Civil War era, much earlier, but still maybe used in the Edwardian era.

There is a reference in the movie Gone with the Wind in which Mammy orders Scarlett to throw a shawl across her bare shoulders so she won't "freckle", and I believe she mentions all the lemon juice she had to put on her skin to get rid of her freckles. I will try to find a clip of this.

I have curly African hair, so I'm not sure how much relevancy my own experiences have to this, but that part about never sleeping in a bun/ponytail is absolutely true, at least for me. It puts prolonged stress on your hair and causes some strands to weaken and break down the middle where the band is.

My grandmother said she used to treat hear with eggs, not shampooing tho regularly. It's because of lipids eggs have, they pick up grime I guess without damaging the sculp maybe? Idk, it was a pretty common thing in Eastern Europe even in 20th century :)

Why would you say that the skin bleaching tips are useful especially for someone into "vintage"? What about women of colour or women without white skin?? Can't they be into vintage? White women weren't the only people who existed in the past.. Racist.

Lemons do remove tan. However, it should not be applied before exposure to sun because it will cause an even darker tan. In the summer I treat my hands with lemon juice before bedtime to minimize my tan.

I thought you weren't supposed to leave borax on your skin? Wouldn't that dry shampoo have left a rash their scalps?

Oh my god don't use the lemon trick, it's way too strong and might destroy your skin if your not using really strong sunscreen and reapplying it every two hours. If you don't, the spots that were "bleached" get darker after being exposed to sun and age faster.

Um, but eggs are actually great shampoo when you're poor like me xD

So the whole don’t throw your hair over a radiator was because women would do it not realizing how hot the radiators would get and would set their hair on fire/burn their hair/cause sever damage to hair is so long I don’t even bother blow drying it because of the risk of it tangling in the fan.

Lemon causes acid burns when you expose the skin with lemon juice on the sun directly, so if you want to do it you should probably use it at night

there are many people today who shampoo (!) their hair only once a month or less, but that doesn't mean they'd never rinse with water. I personally managed to only wash with rye flour for some half year, but recently my hair has become a little more oily and thus I wash once a week max. with a bar of soap, but I rinse it more often.

Hydrogen Peroxide is a chemical that can lighten the hair if you put it on directly. Now, in the modern era, it is used in the developer of hair color or bleach so that your hair opens up and accepts the color. And it's also used as a disinfectant for wounds and such.
giancolabird Anos atrás
I think you are correct. I have heard of setting hair with eggs.
Sofka450 Anos atrás
The way washing your hair with eggs may be this: it dissilwes the oils and dirt so when you rinse it comes off easier.

Three things: 1. Borax is a poison and hydrogen peroxide bleaches the hair super light yellow orange. It’s mostly used as a disinfectant. You’ve probably used it when you cut yourself. It foams and kills germs 2. I sleep with two braids after washing to help it dry with waves. 3 Movie star, Joan Crawford used to rub her body with lemons. It seemed to work.

I don‘t know if this has been commented on already, but eggs work better if whites and yolk are seperated and only the yolks are used. Actually, egg whites make a nice facial toner. Yolks Aline work very well as a hair mask if used alone, else they make a beautiful shampoo when combined with cognag.

In terms of the hair stuff, I don't use shampoo and my hair is perfectly clean and doesn't smell at all. The only reason we need to wash our hair so much these days, is because shampoo strips the scalp of oils, so the body compensates and makes more. By not stripping the oils, the body realises that it doesn't need to make more. And bam, there you have it, don't need to wash your hair as often!

Absolutely NEVER put lemon or lime juice on your skin and NEVER go into the sun with it on your skin. You will develop chemical burns where the juice has been and it’s extremely painful and harmful to the skin. That’s why it’s “equivalent” to bleaching bc it burns the skin and rips off healthy layers

Careful with the lemon juice, friends, I had a friend who got burns all up her arms just from cutting up limes as then going outside on a sunny day. The acid reacts with the sunlight and lightly burns your skin.
Texadon - Andromeda Cripps
Really interesting! About washing the hair, I'm not sure about once a month, but I wash my hair once a week. Truly, you don't need to wash your hair every day unless it gets dirty every day. Obviously if you sweat a lot on your head or do work that gets your hair dirty, you need to wash it, but it is true that most shampoos are drying and strip the hair of its natural oils. That causes them to be produced in greater amounts to compensate. For some people, washing with vinegar or other materials is better than any shampoo, but I myself shampoo and conduction once every week. My hair never really has a chance to get dirty and (having super long, thick hair) it saves me a lot of time during the week.

The cochineal tincture refers to a crimson dye made from boiled insects known as carmine or E120 today. It would have turned the dry shampoo red, I guess.

obviously I found this video over a year too late but this topic is really interesting to me, so: I think the dry shampoo recipe was meant to dry out before use? I found a bunch of recipes from 1906-1911 and they're all powders, used the same way dry shampoo is still used, for the most part. Most of the liquids were fragrance, and cochineal is an insect ground(usually) for its bright red pigment(though they also made liquid versions, apparently), which was/is used in the making of cosmetics. So I imagine if the mixture dried, it would create a fragrant pink or light red powder. Some other fun dry shampoo recipes I found(from 1911): Salt. Just salt. There was also one that was just cornmeal. Though, Lush literally has a dry shampoo that's plain corn starch, so how far have we come, really? And the making sure not to sleep with your hair pulled tight is absolutely true. Just look at Jojo Siwa's hairline.

hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) is famous for taking blood from clothes and cleaning wounds and also this joke: 'two friends go to the bar, the first one says "I'm a chemist, so I'll just have H2O", the second says, "sounds good! I'll have H2O too." When they toast to each other and drink, the second man falls over and dies' ...morbid joke More importantly, it's a bleaching agent and it's a great antiseptic!

Egg is an emulsifier, meaning it changes the nature of oils in water. This means it's a fantastic agent for making mayonnaise (or a super-cheap toner - google it) but also that it emulsifies the oils in your skin and hair to let water rinse them away.Zero chemicals, sooooooo cheap

When i was younger, i loved korean beauty standars, every nigh i’d drenched me in lemon juice. Let me tell you, it works. But rather than bleaching you, brightens you. You are the color of your skin when you were a baby.

Beat 2 egg whites (alone or mixed with a flower water) & apply as a face mask to tighten skin. Plain honey masks are great for moisturizing, plumping, and pimples . Apple cider vinegar is useful for irritation, to calm pimples, to detox scalp, and mixed with water, a natural shine treatment after shampooing. To perk up hair color, add with chamomile tea bags (blonde or light hair,) beet or hibiscus powder or cranberry/carrot juice (red hair or dark hair,) or coffee (dark hair.) You can even make your own vintage lip balm or rogue with coconut oil and beeswax mixed with beet root powder or madder.

Peroxide of hydrogen is now known as hydrogen peroxide. It is for first aid to clean cuts, scrapes, and general debriding. For beauty, you can put some on a cotton swab and apply to pimples or dark spots. When mixed with lemon juice and baking soda, it makes a powerful paste/mask for scars and discoloration. Back in the 70s-80s, it was in a hair product in the US called Sun In. It’s a very strong hair bleach and will leave hair a weird fluorescent orange, so avoid eyebrows or hair if you use it. I imagine the pdf meant it to be used as a spot lightener and maybe to bleach facial or body hair, since bleaching hair blonde was considered cheap until the 1820s.

Hydrogen peroxide: that stinky shit in the brown bottle that foams up when it comes in contact with blood, used to "boil out" (clean) open wounds, stings waaaaay less than rubbing alcohol, and can help lift blood stains from your favorite panties, (but cold water and dawn dish soap works just as well)
