    In addition to a chemical relaxer , what other chemical is required?

    • A.

      Sodium hydroxide

    • B.

      Conditioner

    • C.

      Neutralizing shampoo

    • D.

      Normalizing solution

    Correct Answer
    C. Neutralizing shampoo
    Explanation
    A neutralizing shampoo is required in addition to a chemical relaxer because it helps to restore the hair's pH balance after the relaxer has been applied. The chemical relaxer, such as sodium hydroxide, alters the hair's structure by breaking down the protein bonds. The neutralizing shampoo helps to stop the relaxing process and prevent any further damage to the hair. It also helps to remove any residue of the relaxer and restore the hair's natural pH level, leaving it in a healthier and more manageable state. A conditioner and normalizing solution may be beneficial for hair care, but they are not specifically required in addition to a chemical relaxer.

    • A.

      Elasticity

    • B.

      Strength

    • C.

      Thickness

    • D.

      Porosity

    Correct Answer
    D. Porosity
    Explanation
    Porosity refers to the ability of hair to absorb moisture. It is a measure of how easily hair can retain and absorb water or other substances. Hair with high porosity tends to absorb moisture quickly and easily, while hair with low porosity is more resistant to moisture absorption. The porosity of hair is influenced by its structure and condition, such as the cuticle layer and damage from chemical treatments or heat styling. Understanding the porosity of hair is important for choosing the right hair care products and treatments to maintain its moisture balance and overall health.

    What is the P.H. of a soft curl perm?

    • A.

      8 - 8.5

    • B.

      7.5 - 8

    • C.

      9 - 9.5

    • D.

      7.5 - 9.5

    Correct Answer
    C. 9 - 9.5
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 9 - 9.5. This range indicates the pH level of a soft curl perm. The pH scale measures the acidity or alkalinity of a substance, with values below 7 being acidic and values above 7 being alkaline. A soft curl perm typically requires an alkaline solution to break and reform the bonds in the hair, resulting in the desired curls. The pH range of 9 - 9.5 ensures that the solution is strong enough to create the desired effect without causing excessive damage to the hair.

    Rate this question:

  • 17. 

    What strength relaxer should be used on fine tinted or lightened hair?

    • A.

      Soft formula

    • B.

      Mild formula

    • C.

      Strong formula

    • D.

      Extra strong formula

    Correct Answer
    B. Mild formula
    Explanation
    A mild formula should be used on fine tinted or lightened hair because it is less harsh and less likely to cause damage or breakage. Fine hair is generally more delicate and prone to damage, so using a strong or extra strong formula could be too harsh and cause further damage. Additionally, tinted or lightened hair is already chemically treated, so using a milder formula helps to minimize the risk of over-processing and maintain the integrity of the hair.

    Rate this question:

  • 18. 

    How much percentage of natural curl should be removed with a chemical relaxer?

    • A.

      No more than 40%

    • B.

      No more than 60%

    • C.

      No more than 70%

    • D.

      No more than 80%

    Correct Answer
    D. No more than 80%
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "no more than 80%". This means that when using a chemical relaxer, it is recommended to remove no more than 80% of the natural curl. This allows for some level of curl to remain, providing a more natural and balanced result. Removing more than 80% may result in overly straightened hair, which can appear unnatural and potentially cause damage.

      Off base

    • D.

      Slightly off base

    Correct Answer
    A. On base
    Explanation
    Rolling the hair on base creates full volume. When the hair is rolled on base, it is lifted and positioned directly on top of the base, which creates maximum lift and volume. This technique is commonly used to achieve a voluminous hairstyle with lots of body and height. Rolling the hair on base allows the hair to be lifted away from the scalp, giving it more space to expand and create fullness.

      Viruses

    • C.

      Flagella

    • D.

      Parasites

    Correct Answer
    A. Saprophytes
    Explanation
    Saprophytes are a type of bacteria that live on dead matter. They obtain nutrients by decomposing organic material, such as dead plants or animals. This process helps to recycle nutrients back into the ecosystem. Unlike parasites, which rely on living hosts for their survival, saprophytes thrive on non-living organic matter. Viruses are not bacteria but are infectious agents that require a host to reproduce. Flagella are whip-like structures that some bacteria use for movement. Therefore, the correct answer is saprophytes.

    Liquids that can be mixed together in any proportion without separating are called "miscible". This means that the molecules of the liquids are able to mix and form a homogeneous solution.
