Masks for hair made of gelatin have an amazing result, which can be compared with the lamination of hair . Gelatin covers the hair with a thin nutrient film, which saturates the hair with protein and restores its structure. The hairstyle becomes more voluminous, the hair is easily laid, looks healthy and shiny. But with dry and brittle hair, and also if they are exposed to frequent chemical waves, remember that some types of gelatin masks dry hair. In this case, they should be used with extreme caution.
1. Boil water, cool. In a bowl, pour 1 tablespoon of gelatin (any of the stores), pour three tablespoons of water (attention: not hot!). If your hair is thick and / or long, the amount of gelatin can be increased threefold. The main thing - adhere to the proportion 1: 3.
2. It's good to mix everything. If gelatin sticks to the spoon - it's not scary, it will wash off. Now it will be better to cover the bowl with a lid or a plate (so that the gelatin does not freeze) and set aside for 20 minutes.
3. If gelatin still does not melt, heat it on a water bath - the main thing is that it does not boil at the same time, otherwise the whole use of the mask will go to nothing. But remember: all the lumps should dissolve, because if you put on your hair is not completely dissolved gelatin, it will be very difficult to comb out.
4. Let the mask cool down, add to it 0.5 tablespoons of your favorite nutritional mask or balm - this remedy will help to easily wash off the mask from the hair.
5. If you want, you can enrich the makeup of the mask with other ingredients (mustard, milk, yolk, herbs and so on), based on the type of your hair. The final consistency should resemble a thin honey.
All gelatinous hair masks are applied simply. But there is one nuance: do not put this mask on the scalp, even on the roots of hair - and the substance is easier to wash, and it will not itch.
Immediately after applying the mask, put on a special cap or a simple bag on your hair. We wrap everything on top with a towel, after which we warm up the hairdryer for 10-15 minutes. Well, now forget about the mask for as long as 45 minutes.
Gelatine mask is washed off with plain water - if there are no lumps, then this is easy because of the added balm.
This procedure can be carried out at least once a week. Each time the effect will be more visible: the hair will become healthier, smooth, even, and much thicker. If you have a problem with brittle or falling out, gelatin masks will help solve it.
