If you’re in need of serious hair repair then have some dessert. No, that isn’t a typo. Believe it or not, the same ingredient we use to make gelatin desserts like jello, marshmallows, trifles, candy corn and gummy bears is good for your hair.
I’m talking about gelatin (or gelatine). It’s translucent, colorless, flavorless and packs a powerful punch when used on your hair. How? Well gelatin contains high levels of protein that strengthen the hair shaft, protein derived from the collagen inside animals’ skin and bones. Collagen helps strengthen the tensile strength of your hair. Translation? This means less breakage and stronger strands when combing your hair. And don’t we all want this?
Unlike many of the products on the shelves, gelatin is very affordable (recession or no recession) and it is extremely easy to prepare. A five-year old could prepare it and I’m not kidding. You’ve probably never even looked at the ingredients on a bottle of a strong protein treatment. Take a gander and you’ll find that most of them contain – you guessed it – collagen.Tutorial to follow.
