Hello, kittens! I continue the epic treatment of my hair, as I wrote, the result is visible, however, I want to try a popular in Russia (as I see in english-speaking countries this recipe is not so popular) remedy, it's a lamination of hair.
Comparing with the salon procedures, the Lamination of hair with the gelatin at home is more, more, moooore cheaper, and the effect (according to reviews) is the same or even better. Well, let's see how I can help restore my injured in the battles for the beauty hair with a gelatin's lamination. :D
As usual I will take a simple recipe of the lamination as a base, but I will make my own adjustments, cuz my hair needs not just a wrap, but also an intense nutrition. Whatever they write, but the gelatin is made from a denatured collagen (do you remember cooked eggs? Cooked egg white is denatured and its molecules have lost their natural properties), and this collagen will not nourish your hair. It is better to add to the mix for laminating additional ingredients that can penetrate into the hair structure BEFORE it will be wrapped.
For a gelatin base we need:
1 tbsp. of the gelatin (in powder)
4 tbsp. of the water (or the milk)
I mixed the gelatin with the boiling milk, and left the mix for 20 minutes. This is the usual starting point for all the recipes in Russia, we are preparing the gelatin base for lamination and after we will mix with the components that our hairs need.
My hair, killed with the peroxide, needs fairly powerful components as nutrient and moisturizing as well, but I still want to keep a nice light shade without yellowing. So my choice is:
1 tbsp. of the mask for colored hair
1 tbsp. of the sweet almond oil (it's nutrient component and also it will give the shining to my hair)
1 teaspoon of aloe vera gel - powerful moisturizing and regenerating component. I bought it in the UK, it has a jelly-like concentrated form .
When the gelatin base is ready (gelatin gotta be completely dissolved and the mixture is cooled a bit), I mix all the ingredients. I wash my hair with a shampoo, I don't use a conditioner, for keep the cuticle scales opened. By the way, a little advice - before applying any remedies (masks, creams so on) rinse the hair with a hot water, then the cuticle scales will open and the nutrient components will penetrate inside the hair. I apply on the washed hair my magic mix fro the lamination of hair, wrap my head with the wrap, and put a towel over. I wait 40 minutes, periodically warming the head in a towel with a hairdryer - to enhance the action of components.
I tried to reflect the result on the pic. However, "after" the hair still didn't dry up, I was hurry to share my joy! "Before" my hair looked like a porous, now the pores are filled with the gelatin, and the structure of the hair is smooth, so (also because of the almond oil) the hair's got a healthy glow. Also, thanks to the excellent gelatin's "corset", the hair became stronger, and they don't t break when I comb it. Hair looks like A LOT OF HAIRS (because each hair has become thicker.) Who said that the Lamination of hair with the gelatin doesn't help? It's the excellent help! I plan to do it regularly, until my hair burned with the peroxide grow up, and I will cut the ends. Try this recipe! You will not regret it!
Take care of your beauty, kittens! Love&kiss!! Meaow=*
