64 ★ Deep Protein Conditioning Treatment with Knox Gelatine

260 ratings | 37642 views
In this video, I share how I make and use gelatin as a protein treatment. More Information: *** Gelatin is a mixture of peptides and proteins produced by partial hydrolysis of collagen extracted from the skin, boiled crushed bones, connective tissues, organs and some intestines of animals. --Wikipedia ***The Knox Gelatin website calls gelatin a "natural" protein. ***The book where I found the recipe: Naturally Healthy Hair: Herbal Treatments and Daily Care for Fabulous Hair by Mary Beth Janssen. I purchased it from Amazon (http://www.amazon.com), and it is $12.45. ***Hair was a little dry after treatment. Next time, I will leave the moisturizing conditioner in longer and sit under my steamer or hooded dryer. Hair bounced back to "normal" after about five days. I spritzed hair every day with my aloe vera gel spray. ***I washed my hair 13 days after the treatment and steamed my hair for 40 minutes. My hair felt GREAT the next day. ***I used about 5 ounces and had 4 ounces left over. I think it is possible to cut this recipe in half. ***Gelatin will make hair slightly stiff. Apply very carefully and try not to agitate hair once gelatin in on it. ***You can find Knox Gelatine at the grocery store in the baking goods aisle. __________ Music by Dan-O at DanoSongs.com: "Violet Shrine" Hair Disclaimer: I enjoy sharing what I am learning about my hair.

Hi, Deep condition after the treatment is a good move, but instead of adding the Softee, you should have used either; Olive oil, Argan oil and or Coconut oil, just a little goes a long way and let it dry naturally w/o the twisting. Your hair would have been much softer have you not used Softee .

I normally put mine on and sit under dryer until the strands dry, not my scalp.  I then rinse apply deep conditioner and sit under steamer.  My breakage seems to discontinue and my hair is moisturized.  I believe that deep conditioning after the treatment is crucial.

So glad you made this video. I had been looking for an alternative protein treatment than eggs and I heard gelatin was a subtle option. When I where braids, twists, and yarn, my hair sheds a lot as you described, I have been frustrated because I really want to do more protective styles... Will be trying this method right away and let you know how it works ;-)

How bout you just add gelatin powder to a conditioner the way you balance the protein and moisture at the same time

I added honey to the mix. Saturated my hair with the treatment and left it on until I finished showering. Rinsed it out and proceeded with the cg method.

I tried your protein treatment and the results were wonderful. Plan on doing this once a month.

I use the curly girl method. I will try this protein treatment and continue using the curly girl method. I can't wait to see the results.
Marilyne (5 years ago)
I,ve always heard the balance should be half and half. lets say you wash your hair 4 times a month, you should have at least 1 protein treatment and 1 moisturizing treatment for the month.
chooga4eva (5 years ago)
hey nappynfree, do you have any recipes for dry hair? my hair is always dry no matter how mcuh i moisturise!
MilkandHoney101 (5 years ago)
@NappyNFree You can use 2 tablespoons of yogurt and ACV, add essential to mask the smell.
PrissyNPolish (5 years ago)
Yes!!!! Same here I was not deep conditioning my hair enough and I started too see those little broken hairs. I got an inch cut off and started deep conditioning every week. Although the breakage decreased it has not stopped so I was thinking of giving myself a good protein treatment. Today I logged on, only to see this video.... IT WAS MEANT TO BE!!! 🙌🙏

Great video. Have you tried the yogurt and ACV deep conditioner. It works wonders for my hair. Never knew to use gelatin.
DymondDreamz1 (6 years ago)
Thanks for the info and your hair looks great! I would have never thought to use gelatin as a protein treatment, sometimes I use an egg. I will be trying this.
