It is pleasant to perfume the hair after washing it when the hair is half dry. The following ingredients are required to make this fragrant perfume.
6 tablespoons powdered charcoal
5 tablespoons powders myrrh
1 tablespoon powdered benzoin
1 tablespoon potassium nitrate
2-3 drops oil of bergamot
2-3 drops of sandalwood
mucilage of tragacanth
Mix the powders together and sieve, and then add the oils. Add the potassium nitrate, and then sufficient mucilage of tragacanth to make a stiff paste.
Heat the mixture over a water bath and then make into little cones and dry. Just light one of the cones and let the smoke go into the damp hair.
The smell is highly aromatic and exotic.
If you’re looking for a new hairstyle, trying to find a flattering cut for your face shape or just want to know how to tame your curls or add body to your limp hair, we’ve got your tips and tricks.

Everyone loses between 40 and 120 strands a day, depending on how much hair you have, your age and your hair’s growth cycle. People with fine hair tend to have more of it and therefore will lose more of it than their thicker-haired sisters and brothers. Your hair also thins as you get older, particularly after menopause for women. But unlike aging men, the thinning tends to stop after awhile.
Here are common causes of thinning and hair loss:
1. Seasonality. You’ll lose the most hair in the fall — typically November and December when hair reaches maturity in its growth cycle.
2. Diet. Hair loss can occur through poor dieting.
