Gelatin is mostly thought of for use in cooking and baking. Gelatin can be added to almost any homemade pie filling to make the mixture less runny and is used to make homemade marshmallows and in canning ham. Gelatin also has some unusual uses. It contains keratin, an important ingredient that can help make your hair grow longer and stronger.

Internal Use

You can purchase gelatin pills that you take once or twice a day. These pills, which are typically small gel pills, can be purchased from any vitamin store. Not only will taking gelatin supplements help your hair grow stronger and longer, but it can also improve your bone strength, joints, tissue and skin rejuvenation and help your nails grow longer as well.

Gelatin Shampoo

If you would prefer to not take any supplements, you can add gelatin to your shampoo. Purchase a pack of colourless, flavourless gelatin from your grocery store. Melt a few tablespoons of the gelatin in half a cup of warm water, then add the normal amount of shampoo that you use to the bowl of gelatin. Make sure that you mix the gelatin with the shampoo well, then apply the shampoo-gelatin mix to your hair. Wash your hair as usual, massaging the mixture well into your scalp. This can be done a few times a month to help strengthen your hair, helping it to grow longer.

Gelatin Hair Mask

Natural hair masks can help improve your hair's strength and shine while protecting your hair from split ends and breakage. You can also make your hair grow longer by adding 2 tbsp of colourless, tasteless gelatin to your favourite hair mask. Apply the hair mask to your entire head and leave it on for about 30 minutes. When you wash your hair, it will feel silky and look shiny.
