Frizzy, unruly, unmanageable, curly and dull. If that’s what your hair looks like, a gelatin lamination treatment will be the best remedy. Check how to properly perform it and what effects it delivers.
What is hair lamination treatment?
Gelatin treatment involves applying a protective product to hair. It leaves a coat shielding from damage and harmful outside elements. The products you will use are meant for sealing cuticle scales and smoothing out the hair structure.
Gelatin hair treatment – recipe
For preparing the mask, you need the following ingredients:
- gelatin – budget and widely available,
- a favorite hair mask or cosmetic oil,
- warm water,
- a bowl and a spoon to mix the ingredients,
- a shower cap and a towel.
How to prepare a gelatin hair mask?
Firstly, prepare all ingredients. Before mixing, you must know that gelatin hardens fast. Pour it into a bowl, pour some hot water over and mix until getting smooth consistency. Next, add an oil or a mask and mix well. After a while, the lamination treatment is ready to use! Apply it to washed, dry hair. Afterwards, put on a shower cap and a towel. After 45 minutes rinse the gelatin out using cool water and blow dry the hair with a warm airflow – gelatin penetrates deeper inside the hair.
Gelatin hair lamination – effects
A DIY gelatin hair mask gives your hair the following benefits:
- a natural shine,
- softness and smoothness,
- easy combing and styling.
The good side of the treatment is that the smell of gelatin vanishes. The effect, on the other hand, lasts for around a week (yet it depends on how often you wash your hair).
