Stretch Your Shampoo Dollar And Grow Healthier Hair With A Pack Of Gelatin

If you want to make your bottle of shampoo last a little longer while still improving your hair's health, all you need is a pack of gelatin.

One Good Thing By Jillee recommends mixing in a half cup of water and half a packet of unflavoured gelatine for every 230mL of shampoo left in the bottle. It will need to be well blended, so you'll probably want to squeeze all of the ingredients into a mixing bowl, and then add it back to the bottle with a funnel later.

Once you're done, the gelatine will increase the protein content of the shampoo and thicken it, allowing you to use less in each shower. In addition to saving you money, the extra protein helps promote a strong, healthy head of hair. This definitely sounds a little gross at first blush, but it's worth a try if you don't want to pay extra at the store for protein strengthening shampoo.

If you have any gelatine left over, Jillee also created some DIY hair gel with the same ingredients, so be sure to check out the source link for a walkthrough.

    Or you could do what I've been doing for the last 5 years and just not use shampoo at all. I just rinse my hair every morning and it's clean and healthy as it always was.

    It seems to me, at least, that we don't actually need shampoo at all. It's something that hasn't even existed for thousands of years, and then suddenly 100 years ago it's something we can't do without? Hardly.

      Sorta similar, but I use the classic "Lather, Rinse, Repeat" method, but only once or twice a week. Rest of the week, I also just rinse the hair. Shampoo is fairly unnecessary.

    Protein added to hair does nothing to improve its condition. It may be made of protein, but the claims made for protein in your shampoo are nonsense. It's akin to having flakes of metal in car polish.
