  • 1 packet unflavored gelatin
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • ½ cup water

Method of preparation and use:

Pour the water in a pot and heat it until it starts boiling. After that, add the gelatin and stir until it is dissolved. Then, add the oil and stir well. You can use coconut oil or any other oil that you have at home.

You should not wait for too long as the gelatin will solidify and you’ll have to start the procedure all over again. Pay special attention to the ends of your hair and saturate your hair well. Next step is to cover your hair with a wet, hot towel and leave the mask to act for at least 15 minutes. Finally, wash your hair as usual: use shampoo and apply conditioner.

Blow dry and you will notice the difference right after the first use.
