    The key to ensuring complete penetration of permanent wave solution on coarse hair is:

    • A.

      Less processing time

    • B.

      Saturation of the scalp

    • C.

      Saturation of the cortex

    • D.

      Fast processing lotions

    Correct Answer
    C. Saturation of the cortex
    Explanation
    To ensure complete penetration of permanent wave solution on coarse hair, it is important to saturate the cortex. The cortex is the middle layer of the hair shaft, which contains keratin proteins. By saturating the cortex with the solution, the chemicals can effectively break down the disulfide bonds in the hair, allowing for the restructuring of the hair's shape. This is especially crucial for coarse hair, as it tends to be more resistant to chemical treatments. By saturating the cortex, the solution can fully penetrate and provide the desired results.

    Chemical services performed on overly porous hair require solutions that are:

    • A.

      High ph

    • B.

      Alkaline

    • C.

      Diluted

    • D.

      Low ph

    Correct Answer
    D. Low ph
    Explanation
    Chemical services performed on overly porous hair require solutions that have a low pH. This is because overly porous hair has a damaged cuticle layer, which makes it more prone to breakage and further damage. Using a low pH solution helps to close the cuticle layer, making the hair less porous and more resistant to damage. This also helps to improve the overall health and appearance of the hair. Solutions with high pH or alkaline properties would further damage the hair, while diluted solutions may not be effective enough to treat the porous hair.

    • B.

      Ammonium thioglycolic

    • C.

      Sodium hydroxide

    • D.

      Sodium hydroxide

    Correct Answer
    A. Glyceryl monothioglycolate
    Explanation
    Glyceryl monothioglycolate is the correct answer because it is an acid with a low pH and is commonly used as the primary reducing agent in acid waves. Acid waves are a type of permanent wave used to curl or wave hair. Glyceryl monothioglycolate is responsible for breaking the disulfide bonds in the hair, allowing it to be reshaped and set into the desired style. Ammonium thioglycolate is also used in acid waves, but it is not the primary reducing agent. Sodium hydroxide, on the other hand, is a strong base and not an acid, so it is not the correct answer.
