A powder to clean oily hair is made as follows:

Powdered orris, 1/4 pound, Bergamot rind, 1 1/3 drams, Cassia flowers, 1 1/2 drams, Coarsely ground cloves, 1/4 drams.

Mix all, and put through a sieve. The best way of using is to rub into the hair at night, and let it remain until morning, then brush it out. This will perfume the hair.
