How to geletine your hair

You'll need:

Pastry brush / paint brush

Gelatine sachets
Bun net
Hair pins
Hair tie
Hair brush
Old towel
How to gelatine hair for synchro:

  1. Tip 3/4 sachets of gelatine into your bowl, then pour on half a cup of boiling water and stir with the fork until dissolved. Ideally the gelatine should be just thin enough to run off the fork, if needed keep adding water to thin.
  2. While the gelatine is cooling, pull your hair into a high and tight ponytail
  3. Twist your hair into a tight bun and pin to keep it secure. You’re aiming to have the bottom of the bun in line with the top of your ears
  4. Place the bun net over the bun and pin to secure
  5. Pin down any stray bits of hair that are too short to tie up
  6. The gelatine should now be cool enough to start applying, suggest at this stage you cover your shoulder with an old towel to catch any drips
  7. With the pastry brush, or hair dye brush, apply the gelatine sparingly over your head, don’t forget the bun!
  8. Finally, to make sure there is no chance of your hair falling out, two coats is always a good idea.
