Jello ?

Recommended Posts

Guest brandi78

Not too long ago I went to get my split ends trimmed and the girl that cuts my hair said that jello makes your hair & nails grow quicker. She said that it is the gelatin in it that makes it happen. Has anyone heard of this before or is this just a myth. I have been mixing jello up and drinking it like kool aid. It tastes decent but will get lumpy if you dont drink it soon after mixing it. I have had some everyday for about 2 weeks & my nails seem a little stronger.

I'm guessing it's a myth.

Brandi,

It is NOT a myth. Gelatin is helpful to your body for producing keratin which is the bade substancr of hair and nails.

My aunt drank jello as an dietary additive for hair and nail treatment, as she had the problem of frizzy hair and brittle nails. She said that if you has a calcium deficiency or trouble metabolizing calcium, it would help. It only works with new growth. PLUS later I found only special forms of calcium can be absorbed by the body - supplemental calcium as vitamins, are not absorbed.

I hope this helps. But of course I am not a dietary expert.

Something else I have always been told-even by a Dr-was to drink lots of milk. I know when I was pregnant and on calcium pills my nails were longer and stronger than they had ever been

From the internet: Jello and Hair are both made of proteins. Jello is an example of denatured collagen, and hair is made of keratin. Jello has no inherent properties that make it any different from proteins that you digest normally, such as those from meats. Provided that you supply your body with the amino acids that are not created by itself, your body already makes 16 of the 20 different amino acids.

Will your hair grow by digesting more Jello? There is a potential if you don't eat any food that had no amino acids in it, making your cells lack the essential amino acids it needs thus preventing proper hair growth. But the chance of this happening is similar to you not eating anything at all. For these reasons, jello will probably do nothing for your hair growth, but make you feel hyper because of the sugar.

It is also helpful to remember that calcium alone is useless as your body needs vitamin D to make use of the calcium. That's why milk is fortified with Vitamin D, to aide in using the calcium it has.

      Just waiting for my son to vacate the bathroom so I can get ready for my yearly medical. She's a new doctor and although I saw her once in Sept this will be my first medical with her. My electrologist is tomorrow so I have a little growth of white hairs but the denuding of the chin is noticable. I figure no makeup. The other significance is it will be my second medical since starting hormones so my second exam for breast cancer signs. (I check for signs but have never formally learned) For some reason i am kind of private with surgery so I will leave the details to my discussion with her today as I have approval from my transition doctor and shpuld be on a waiting list. The weathers lousy here right now and despite Vancouver's beauty in the spring and summer, the winters are mostly wet, dark, and dirty from debris being blown away. Still it's my home and it always looks worse outside than it actually is. 2 weeks from now is my transistion doctors appointment and I hope to have a surgery date by then or given to me then. Cheers Rachel

      Thank you for sharing about the issues facing you in Bulgaria.  I fear ignorance and fear of anything different has long been a tool used by politicians and "religious" factions to unite less educated individuals.  We face that to some extent here in the USA as well.  It is especially obvious with the present administration.  Hopefully enlightenment will continue and acceptance will win out.   Hugs,   Charlize

      I agree with Charlize as I would like to see it as well.

      https://www.coe.int/en/web/conventions/full-list/-/conventions/treaty/210 This is the document that brings chaos in Bulgaria's media and 'society'. The word 'society' is in quotes, because it reflects only a selected members and groups of privileged and oppressive people in the country, who  see themselves as the 'society'.   What in the Council of Europe Convention on preventing and combating violence against women and domestic violence also know as the Istanbul's Convention in Bulgaria, brings that wave of shock and hatred?    First it was the conception of 'gender'. In Bulgaria, for the regular people, 'gender' and 'sex' means one thing. For the scientist and intelligent people it's not one and the same. So the here is the definition that started the war between Bulgarians Christians and Nazis against the Human rights advocates and transgender and intersex people:
          So the from here, evangelistic-oriented and sponsored, pseudo-democratic organizations like 'Society and Values' started to talk about how the Convention will force the country to add 'third gender' to their Constitution, how trans women 'who are men' will compete with women and use their facilities (painfully, well known in USA and other countries, haters-strategy, yeah!) and that it will allow a 'same sex marriages' to be legalized. The doors of misery and stupidity, diverse the attention from the major goal of the Convention - to limited the violence in Bulgaria.   Bulgaria is country with a lot of psychopathic traditions related to sexism, patriarchate and chauvinism. The hate and discrimination against LGBTI+, women and emigrants, in the country are totally above 'normal'. The motives for hate are like taken from the Medieval. If we start to talk about the domestic violence, against vulnerable people and minorities, based on different categories, I must write a whole book in here.   So at this moment, at this point, the Convention can't have ratification (it's signed), because illiterates and haters are throwing their poison on the citizens, making them to believe that the Convention will force the people to have 'third gender' or even 'worst' - to accept transgender and intersex 'freaks'.    This is our reality, which is more like hell! The stupidity, hatred and complexes are spreading around dressed like 'Christian and family values'... We still can't predict the end.

      She certainly uses her assets well and i'm glad to see her given positive attention.  Hopefully the rest of us don't feel we have to live up to those standards of beauty.  I know i'm content simply being an old woman but .........a girl does dream sometimes   Hugs,   Charlize
    • Charlize
      I hope she gets the nomination at the least.  It sounds like a difficult but beautiful film.  Hopefully we will have the opportunity to see it as well.   Hugs,   Charlize

      Hi Tali and its really nice meeting you!!!   I prefer to hang out only in the LGBT world but it's also impossible to stay there forever. I attend a transgender group meeting every week and it has really helped me to stay grounded as you pointed out that being transgender has its own set of problems.   I fairly new here and I will say the girls and guys here are very accepting and over the top helpful in every situation I have seen presented. You have found a safe place and please feel comfortable here! Welcome and hope to see you on here often!!!   Tess
