The original dry shampoo and volumizer! Use any of these hair powders with a pomatum for ultimate volume and style capabilities. For the 18th century European or Colonist, hair powder was a necessity for hair cleanliness, as it was thought that brushing powders through the hair helped promote growth and aided in ridding the hair of any other dirt or debris.

Jasmine Scented, 1772 (Organic Rice Powder, Powdered Sugar, Organic Wheat Starch, Organic Powdered Jasmine, Jasmine Essential Fragrance Oil, Synthetic Civet Fragrance, Ambergris Fragrance, Lily Fragrance Oil )

How To Use

After an application of hair pomatum from root to ends, section the hair into manageable amounts and sprinkle on hair starting from root to ends. Brush hair with a boar or natural hair bristle brush for an even application. Style hair as desired. Lightly dust hair with powder for a more dramatic "cast" of color.

Tip: Everyone's hair is different. Test on a small section of your own hair prior to a full application to the head to determine optimum amounts for your hair type. Mileage may vary.
