Question by Paranormal I: When were powdered wigs first worn in 18th century armies?
I ask because I read somewhere that powdered hair began in Prussia in 1713 but I am not clear if this means powdered wigs or just powdered hair.
Answer by Bilbo
Probably both – as powder was used to keep lice at bay it might be used on real hair – but would not have done it much good – so wigs tend to give a better appearance.
