    Default Hair 101 - How Salon Shampoos Work

    Found this on the net and I thought it was a very good piece of reading; so have fun and share your views!

    Hair 101 - How Salon Shampoos Work
    Shampoos are primarily made up of cleansers called surfactants. These surfactants remove dirt, sebum, and build-up from the hair and scalp, and rinse off easily and completely. But how do surfactants do their magic?

    Surfactant molecules are hydrophobic, or water-hating, on one end, and hydrophilic, or water-loving, on the other. This way, as each molecule is introduced to the hair shaft, the hydrophobic end adheres to pollutants, pulling them from the hair. Then, when the hair is rinsed, the hydrophilic end gravitates to the passing water, taking the pollutants with it and down the drain. Remember, thorough rinsing is critical to the successful outcome of the cleansing action.
    Never argue with an idiot; people watching may not be able to tell the difference

    Making Africa and other nations of people of color smaller than they appear; diminishes their importance.
