Gelatine PT and travelling

Currently, I wash my hair once a week and I always do a PT when washing my hair. I've been doing this for little over a year now.

Then I suddenly wondered how to do this when going on a holiday - the kind where you stay at hotels and motels, so without a stove etc. How do other gelatine PTers do this? My hair does need the protein..

Some hotels might have a microwave or at least be willing to bring you a cup of boiling water (maybe at the hotel restaurant), so that's one way to do the mix. Also the water may not have to be boiling. You may be able to just mix the powder with plain room temp or hot water from the tap. The protein is in the gelatin no matter what temp the water is. Personally I started using SS PT. It's much easier, esp for travel. And doesn't have the chemicals that other commercial PTs do.

Thanks for your reply naturecat! I use gelatine sheets (powder is really expensive here), so hot water is quite essential. They won't dissolve completely if I just use warm water.

I've looked at the SS PT before and I wish I could get it here! Shipping to the Netherlands is crazy though, so that's why the gelatine PT is generally a great solution. Although admittedly, having a product instead of having to create a recipe (however simple and short) would be my preference.

Many hotels have single cup coffee brewers, so possibly you could just run a cup of water through that. Others have a coffee/tea area set up in the lobby every morning, so you could get water there.

Otherwise, you may have to use a commercial PT or skip it while on vacation. If that's the case, you can use protein heavy products. I frequently use a milder PT, or a protein spray, as my first product on. With low porosity hair, I think it gives my hair some extra time to absorb the extra protein.
