UV Gel: Milady Cosmetology Quiz!

Have you ever heard of UV gel? The ultraviolet gel includes ingredients that give off free radicals when exposed to Ultraviolet light. UV has an extremely short wavelength, and people cannot see it with the naked eye. The gel's free radicals cause other molecules within the gel to bond to each other, making it stiff. If you are studying to become a cosmetologist, this quiz will teach you about UV gel.
