Bandoline -- The First Hair Gel - 04/09/2013

ban·do·line noun.  a mucilaginous preparation made from quince seeds and used for smoothing, glossing, or waving the hair.   Origin: 1840–50; < French bandeau bandeau + -line < Latin linere to anoint, smear "The ladies know that the miscellaneous properties of the behdana (quince seed) enables them to maintain any desired position of the hair, but first wetting with it and then keeping the hair as desired until dry..." reports Dr. Chase, whose recipe for bandoline is 1/2 oz quince seed, a few drops of perfuming oil, 1 pint hot water, and 3 oz alcohol. Pour the hot water over the seeds and let it stand overnight; strain. Add the perfume to the alcohol, then add to the strained preparation. Bottle, and keep corked.  Bandoline was popular for use to make little curled bangs and to slick the hair back neatly, similar to modern hair gel. It was also used to help hold crimps and curls in the hair. The hair usually needed to be secured with bands (hence the name) or laces while it dried. Later versions of bandoline might use tragacanth or gum arabic in place of the quince seed.
