All-natural and organic handmade hair masks feed the roots of the scalp and hair.
Making a homemade hair mask is not only very inexpensive but also very convenient.
All you need is a few basic kitchen ingredients.
- 1 tablespoon powdered gelatin
- 1/3 cup water
- 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
- 1 teaspoon honey
- Add the water to a small saucepan.
- Add the gelatin slowly over the boiling liquid.
- Make sure to continuously whisk to prevent lumps.
- Place the saucepan on your stove and allow the liquid to heat until steaming, stirring regularly with the help of a spoon to prevent the gelatin from sticking to the bottom of the pan.
- When the mixture is steaming, remove from fire.
- When the mixture has cooled down a little, it should be warm but not so hot that it’s unbearable to touch.
- Add some honey, vinegar, and mix well.
- When the hair mask mixture is warm but not so hot that it is unbearable to touch, apply it to clean, wet hair.
- Enable the mask to sit for 10 to 30 minutes.
- If you’re going to let it stay for more than 10 minutes, then I recommend you cover your hair mask with a shower cap so that it doesn’t dry out completely.
- When the time is up, rinse thoroughly and follow with the conditioner.
When it comes to protein and hair masks, they are definitely my favorite.
Healthy hair is both strong and lustrous, but hair that has too much protein hardens lacks flexibility, and starts to split.
On the other hand, delicate hair is also prone to breakage.
The trick is to find harmony between the two of them.
If you find that your hair feels stiff or crunchy aftercare, gently rinse your hair again just to make sure that all the excess has been eliminated, then continue with the conditioner.
Next time you take treatment, use only half the amount of gelatin you used before.
Gelatin, which includes keratin proteins that actually bind to the hair to make it stronger.
Unlike proteins such as egg yolk, which have trouble bonding to the hair, partially cooked proteins are easily contained in gelatin bonding.
Gelatin adheres particularly well to the damaged areas, but it also nourishes the entire strand.
It helps smooth the cuticle of the hair, improves the shine, and prevents breakage.
Many with curly or wavy hair often say that it eliminates frizz.
Something to keep in mind is that you might get too much of a good thing when it comes to protein treatments for your hair.
Honey is also a rich source in antioxidant properties, reducing hair breakage, hair loss and keeping your hair healthy and strong.
It also contains anti-bacterial properties that avoid scalp infections that can make the scalp itchy, red, and swollen, and that can promote hair growth.
Apple cider vinegar nourishes the hair and scalp and increases the activity of the sebaceous glands to flush out debris, excess oil build-up, and unhealthy bacteria.
If you’re using products on your hair—everyday shampoo and conditioner, hair sprays and gels, mousses, and foams – some small residue from such products remain on your scalp and hair, leaving strands to look dull and lifeless.
One of the easiest and cheapest ways to get rid of this residue accumulation and restore life to your locks is by using apple cider vinegar.
