Lamination of hair at home

Hair lamination has long been one of the most sought after services in beauty salons. However, some of the fair sex successfully adapted this procedure for home use. Before you decide whether you need to carry out lamination at home, you should familiarize yourself with the pros and cons.

Lamination: what is it?

Ideally, hair scales should fit tightly to each other, then the curls will be smooth, shiny and silky. But under the influence of external factors (use of a hair dryer, frequent staining, hard water) scales depart from each other. This is manifested in the fact that the hair becomes brittle, dull, they split and easily tangle.

The effect of lamination is to bring the scales back to the correct position. A composition enriched with keratin, proteins or vitamins is applied to the hair. The composition is aged on the hair for a certain period of time. After washing it, a film is visible on the hair. It protects the hair from the negative effects of external factors. The duration of the effect varies depending on the composition used, but it usually lasts 4-6 weeks. All this time, the curls will delight you with brilliance and smoothness.

How to make hair lamination at home?

When purchasing special tools for lamination in the store, you should simply follow the instructions for their use, which was developed by the manufacturer. In most cases, when it comes to self-preparation of the composition for lamination, gelatin is mentioned. It is required to add 2 tablespoons of gelatin to the water heated to 70 °. The volume of water in relation to gelatin should be 3: 1. Leave the gelatin to swell for 25-30 minutes (the container in which it is located, you must close the lid). Gelatin mixture should be homogeneous. Add to it 1 tablespoon of mask or balm that you regularly use. Stir the mixture thoroughly.

After washing your head, slightly dry the hair, and then apply the prepared composition over them along the entire length, retreating 1 centimeter from the roots. Put on a polyethylene shower cap and wrap the hair on top with a towel. After an hour the mixture can be washed off.

An alternative to gelatin is coconut milk. Mix lemon juice with 1 tablespoon of starch. Stir thoroughly to avoid lumps. 0, 5 cups of milk should be heated. Add 1 tablespoon of olive oil and lemon juice with starch to milk. Stir and thicken (do not bring to a boil). Wash your head while the mixture cools. Then apply it on hair and leave for 1 hour.


The main advantage of this procedure is that it provides hair protection from external factors. For this reason, many girls resort to lamination before traveling to the sea - curls will be protected from exposure to salt water and the sun. Also pay attention to this procedure for lovers of staining. It allows you to extend the color fastness. Visually from the use of lamination increases the density of curls.


Lamination is not considered a medical procedure. It will give the hair a more well-groomed appearance, but its effect is limited in time. If you have split ends, lamination just makes them less noticeable, but does not fix the problem. A side effect of lamination is a slight weighting of the hair. For severe hair loss, this procedure is not recommended.
