I can remember by mother telling me that gelatine is good for your hair. She said that her mother and grandmother swore by using Knox Gelatine, but wasn't quite sure why.
By blending a packet of unflavored, or "original" gelatine into your bottle of shampoo, your shampoo will thicken and you won't need to use as much for each shampoo. Your hair will love the extra protein and the mixture doesn't change the effectiveness of your shampoo or leave any unpleasant stickiness or residue.
- 1 cup water
- 1 packet Knox Gelatine, unflavored
- 14-16 oz shampoo
You'll probably want to squeeze out all of your shampoo into a large mixing bowl. Whisk the ingredients together until well blended, then use a funnel to put back into your shampoo bottle or other container.
Gelatine is also great for your fingernails, and a once-weekly soak in a bowl of hot water/packet gelatine is a great start to a very beneficial manicure.
