Hoodoo Haircare

Was looking for pomade to hold a Marie Antoinette 'do, and came across an interesting line of products some might be familiar with. Above is featured a bottle of Lucky 13 Brand Shampoo. Lucky 13 is a formula used in hoodoo for gambling luck and also to end bad luck streaks in any financial matters. You can also get Lucky 13 Pomade.

Another old brand familiar to fans of the old catalogues is Sweet Georgia Brown, which too is still available (or at least, available in a revived brand.) This doesn't have any occult properties that I know of but it is a traditional product that was often sold alongside hoodoo magical curios in old catalogues -- presumably because they all had the same target audience of African Americans.
