Advantages of hair lamination using gelatin
By lamination, the hair is protected by an outer layer of collagen, extracted from gelatin. If you manage to get over the origin of gelatin (is obtained from bones, cartilage and skin of animals), you’ll discover a true miracle cure.

This protective film will also make your hair stronger, so it will become more resistant to extreme temperatures, the action of hairdressing equipment, pollution and radiation. Add the fact that your hair will be thicker and shinier, softer and easier to comb, and the color will be protected, and you’ll know why we call this a ”miraculous hair treatment”.
How to laminate your hair at home

Boil water and let it cool to room temperature. Mix it well with gelatin in a glass bowl. If you already look distrustful at the mix obtained, considering that you will not even cover a quarter of the hair, you can increase the proportions while retaining the ratio of 1: 3 (ie, three tablespoons of gelatin and of nine water).
Cover the bowl containing your new savior mixture and wash your hair, following the usual care routine, shampoo and conditioner / mask. Grab your hair in a towel and return to your solution for laminating the hair. If the gelatin hasn’t dissolved entirely, you can reheat in bain-Marie, stirring vigorously.
