Gelatin is an hydrolyzed form of collagen. Hydrolyzed protein is good for your hair because the protein has been broken down and the molecules are able to penetrate all layers of the hair better to repair damage and make the hair stronger.
You will need:
- 1 packet unflavoured gelatin (about 10g)
- 1/2 cup boiling water
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise or conditioner
Dissolve the gelatin in the boiling water and mix with your mayonnaise or conditioner until well combined. Shampoo your hair with a clarifying shampoo to get rid of build up (your hair must be clean to absorb maximum protein). Apply to wet hair combing through to ensure all strands are coated. Cover your hair with a shower cap. Sit under a dryer for 20-30 minutes. Rinse the treatment thoroughly with warm water and follow up with a moisturising conditioner.
This treatment is great for both relaxed and natural hair. Bear in mind that this is a "HARD" protein treatment and as such you should only use it once ever six weeks or so depending on your hair’s moisture-protein balance. Please make sure your not protein sensitive.
