It might be confusing for a lot of people to try and comprehend the entire process of someone turning into a Hulk. When watching the first episode of 'She-Hulk: Attorney at Law', a lot of people ended up thinking that it might be enough to simply "get infected" with Bruce Banner's blood in order to receive an ability to go green and mega-powerful.
However, things don't quite work exactly that way.
In fact, Bruce did explain it in a quite clear manner: they both have genetic features that allow them to transform the gamma radiation so that it fuels their "Hulk" part. Because they're related, wounded Jennifer touched Bruce's blood and effectively turned herself into Hulk too due to transforming his radiation.
But there is another thing – the way Bruce appeared to have used Jennifer's blood to heal his arm. How did that work?! There is an answer to that.
Jennifer's healing factor is clearly stronger than that of Bruce. On his own, Bruce wasn't able to heal his arm – he was wearing a bandage along with a special tool that helped keep his human form. However, after Jennifer turned into a Hulk herself, he used her blood – with her stronger healing factor – to bring his arm back to normal.
If you're already starting to think that this Hulk science is about to blow your head up – don't worry, you're not alone. However, we have eight more episodes of 'She-Hulk' to explain things to us. After all, the show has already established that Jennifer is different from Bruce – for instance, her Hulk version does not seem to be suffering from anger issues, hence she does not have to deal with moments of being totally uncontrollable.
But things cannot go that smoothly, can they? 'She-Hulk: Attorney at Law', with new episodes every Thursday, is on its way to prove it to us.
