There are many shampoos and conditioners on the market that contain keratin in the form of gelatin.
A less expensive option is to apply plain gelatin dissolved in warm water to your hair after shampooing. This will help keep your hair moisturized, which will prevent breakage. Synchronized swimmers use gelatin to keep their hair-dos intact, because it won't dissolve in cold water.
Internal Applications of Gelatin
There are many different kinds of gelatin capsules on the market, advertised to help foster longer, stronger hair and nails. Capsules are very inexpensive--in August of 2009 it was possible to purchase one hundred capsules for less than $4.00 US--and are usually taken one to three times a day.
In the 1950's and 1960's it was fashionable to dissolve packets of plain gelatin in water, tea or juice and drink it to promote nail and hair health.
well guys.... I told you I tried Hairdrenalin the POTION just last time. and my roots clearly show how much my hair grew from the hair color .... Anyways... UNFORTUNATELY I had very little new growth from my color this month. So I ran out and got another tube of Miconizole Nitrate yesterday and used it straight.
I need to pick my growth rate back up and I feel like th hairdrenalin the potion SLOWED ME DOWN!
PS A Goddess, I really like the looks of that flat iron you told me about so I think I will get it next month. For this month I will do my amino acid gelatin treatment with my current flat iron that only gets up to like 300 degrees . It is the only flat iron I ever had and I rarely ever used it. (At least I know I don't have any heat damage using something that luke warm)
Like Kiki, I can't wait for everyone to come back and post progress pictures for September.
I have a question, and I hope somebody can help me. I have 3 different textures of hair right now. I have one strip on the side of my head that looks like it was flat ironed when wet, and now reaches APL! I'm super excited about that. Then I have a huge, elongated, easy to detangle section. At the crown of my head I have a dry patch of hair, and no matter how much I moisturize and seal it is dry again when I wake up, like it is starving for moisture. I know the Amino will fix this, but in the meantime what can I do to combat the dryness in that area? Any help would be greatly appreciated. I don't want to have another setback from breakage.
Even though the aminos are supposed to patch up damage to the shaft and the cuticles, I plan to only use it with something moisturizing... like honey, olive oil, castor oil, glycerin, propylene glycol etc so you have a balance. I think one reason some have problems with proteins is that they do them alone. I only do them with an intense moisturizer together.
But about the dryness, what are you using to moisturize and seal? Maybe something better for that?
I was going to ask the same questions as LadyA. I have similar issues with my front edges but since I spritz daily and seal with castor oil just in that area alone it has gotten much better. Is it a dense area of hair??
L = Water and glycerine in a spray bottle first then
O= Castor oil if you have fairly coarse dry hair and then
C= Some cream like ORS leave in Moisturizer or Pink oil Moisturizer
Apply this trinity nightly for regular moisturizing and sealing regimen.
Do this ONLY when you are using ZERO HEAT because otherwise the hair will boil and fry w/ heat and all that moisture.
This would be EXCELLENT after an amino keratin treatment because you can not stretch the kink with all that moisture. It will revert constantly. So it would be best if the curl pattern has already been elongated with an amino keratin treatment so that it requires no manual stretching imo
