Gelatin comes from the structural protein collagen found in many animals. This collagen is a fibrous protein that strengthens the body’s connective tissues and makes up almost one-third of the human body.
How Does It Work?
Hair Benefits Of Gelatin
Gelatin Hair Mask Recipe:
Warm up the milk or use warm water and mix the gelatin powder until it becomes homogeneous in consistency.
Then add olive oil (or coconut oil), an egg, your hair conditioner (or avocado) and mix again. If you have any essential oil, add a few drops (but this is optional).
Apply the mask on a freshly washed hair. Divide your hair into 4 sections and apply the gel as if you’re applying a styling gel. Distributing the mixture all throughout the section.
When working on the section, you have to work fast because the gel would harden quickly. Remember to comb your hair gently. Once you’re done with one section, leave it alone and don’t touch it again. Move on to the other hair section and repeat the process.
Let it sit for about 20 minutes or until it’s a bit dry and hardened. Or you can use a blow dryer to help with the drying. You can attached the diffuser to evenly distribute the heat. If you have a hooded dryer, you can sit down on it until the duration of the drying.
Once the hair is a bit dry, you can rinse it with warm water. When rinsing your hair, let the water touch your hair (don’t use your fingers) allowing your hair to soften on its own before touching it.
How Often You Need To Do This Routine:
This gelatin hair mask brings temporary effects therefore, you can use this routine as an additional hair care treatment. Repeat the hair treatment every 2 weeks for a shiny, soft hair. Also, doing a regular hot oil treatment will help you get that luminous, smooth hair as well.
