Now, I summarize the results and answer basic questions about the lamination of hair, how to do it correctly:
- Try not to rub the mask gelatin into the scalp because it can cause flaking and itching.
- When you prepare the gelatin mixture in a water bath, then make sure that the gelatin does not boil. It immediately lose its beneficial properties. In this case, it is better to prepare a mixture of gelatin again.
- Try to keep the gelatin is completely dissolved. Do not apply the mixture with lumps, because then they would be difficult to comb out the hair.
- If your hair does not get shine, lamination effect is not visible even after a few treatments, perhaps you should consult a doctor to find the cause or disease.
