    This pin-curl, placed correctly, allows the greatest movement/ mobility 

    • A.

      Half off base

    • B.

      Half stem

    • C.

      Full stem

    • D.

      Off base

    Correct Answer
    B. Half stem
    Explanation
    The half stem pin-curl allows for the greatest movement and mobility because it is positioned halfway between the base and the ends of the hair strand. This placement allows the hair to have some support and structure from the base, while still allowing the ends to move freely. This type of pin-curl is ideal for creating volume and soft waves in the hair.

    Correct Answer
    C. Depilation
    Explanation
    Depilation refers to the process of removing hair at the surface of the skin. It involves removing hair from the skin's surface without affecting the hair follicle. Waxing, epilation, and electrolysis all involve removing hair from the root or affecting the hair follicle in some way, whereas depilation specifically refers to surface hair removal.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Waxing is an example of which of which type hair removal 

    • A.

      Photo-epilation

    • B.

      Depilation

    • C.

      Epilation

    • D.

      Electrolysis

    Correct Answer
    C. Epilation
    Explanation
    Epilation refers to the removal of hair from the root, which includes methods like waxing, tweezing, and sugaring. In contrast, depilation involves removing hair from the surface of the skin, such as shaving or using depilatory creams. Photo-epilation is a specific type of hair removal that uses intense pulsed light (IPL) or laser technology. Electrolysis is another method of hair removal that uses an electric current to destroy hair follicles. Therefore, since waxing involves removing hair from the root, it is an example of epilation.

  • 4. 

    Tweezing is an example of which type of hair removal 

    • A.

      Photo-epilation

    • B.

      Epilation

    • C.

      Depilation

    • D.

      Electrolysis

    Correct Answer
    B. Epilation
    Explanation
    Epilation is the removal of hair from the root, which includes methods like tweezing, waxing, and sugaring. These techniques remove hair from beneath the skin's surface, ensuring a longer-lasting result compared to depilation, which only removes hair from the surface. Photo-epilation, on the other hand, uses intense pulsed light (IPL) to target and destroy hair follicles, while electrolysis involves the use of an electric current to permanently remove hair. Therefore, tweezing falls under the category of epilation as it removes hair from the root.

  • 5. 

    Reduction occurs during which stage of the permanent wave or chemical relaxer process

    • A.

      Processing

    • B.

      Neutralizing

    • C.

      Blocking

    • D.

      Wrapping

    Correct Answer
    A. Processing
    Explanation
    During the processing stage of the permanent wave or chemical relaxer process, reduction occurs. This is the stage where the chemical product is applied to the hair, and it works to break down the disulfide bonds in the hair shaft. This allows the hair to be reshaped or relaxed, depending on the desired outcome. The reduction process alters the structure of the hair, making it more malleable and able to hold the desired shape or texture.

    Oxidation occurs during which stage of the permanent wave or chemical relaxer process 

    • A.

      Processing

    • B.

      Neutralizing

    • C.

      Blocking

    • D.

      Wrapping

    Correct Answer
    B. Neutralizing
    Explanation
    During the permanent wave or chemical relaxer process, oxidation occurs when the hair is exposed to the chemicals. This oxidation step helps break down the disulfide bonds in the hair, allowing it to be reshaped or straightened. The neutralizing stage then follows, which stops the oxidation process by applying a neutralizing solution. This solution helps restore the hair's pH balance and re-form the disulfide bonds in their new shape, ensuring the desired texture or style is set. Therefore, the correct answer is neutralizing.

    • B.

      Guanidine

    • C.

      Ammonium thioglycolate

    • D.

      Sodium hydroxide

    Correct Answer
    D. Sodium hydroxide
    Explanation
    Sodium hydroxide is the primary reducing agent in most relaxers. It is a strong alkaline compound that breaks down the disulfide bonds in the hair, allowing it to be reshaped and straightened. Glycerol monothioglycolate and ammonium thioglycolate are commonly used in permanent wave solutions, not relaxers. Guanidine is used in no-lye relaxers, but it is not the primary reducing agent. Therefore, sodium hydroxide is the correct answer.

    The most common neutralizer for an alkaline permanent wave is 

    • A.

      H2O2

    • B.

      Guanidine

    • C.

      Sodium bromide

    • D.

      H2O

    Correct Answer
    A. H2O2
    Explanation
    The correct answer is H2O2. In alkaline permanent wave processes, the hair is treated with a reducing agent to break the disulfide bonds in the hair. This process creates a new shape in the hair. After this, a neutralizer is applied to re-establish the disulfide bonds and set the new shape. H2O2, also known as hydrogen peroxide, is commonly used as a neutralizer in alkaline permanent wave processes. It helps to oxidize and neutralize any remaining reducing agent, ensuring the hair retains the desired shape and texture.

    • C.

      Is highly alkaline

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    A. Requires hear from an outside source
    Explanation
    An "endothermic" permanent wave is one that requires heat from an outside source. This means that in order for the permanent wave to occur, heat needs to be applied externally. This is different from an "exothermic" permanent wave, which generates its own heat during the process. Therefore, the correct answer is that an "endothermic" permanent wave requires heat from an outside source.

    Rate this question:

  • 16. 

    An "exothermic" permanent wave is one that 

    • A.

      Requires heat from an outside source

    • B.

      Is higlhly alkaline

    • C.

      Generates its own heart

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    C. Generates its own heart
    Explanation
    An "exothermic" permanent wave is one that generates its own heat. This means that the chemical reaction occurring during the permanent wave process produces heat as a byproduct, which helps to activate and set the curls in the hair. This is in contrast to an "endothermic" permanent wave, which requires heat from an outside source to provide the necessary temperature for the chemical reaction to occur.

    Correct Answer
    B. Suspension
    Explanation
    A suspension is an unstable mixture of two or more substances that will separate upon standing. In a suspension, the particles of one substance are dispersed in another substance, but they are not completely dissolved. Instead, they remain suspended in the mixture and can be seen with the naked eye. Over time, the particles will settle at the bottom due to gravity, causing the mixture to separate. This is different from a solution, where the solute is completely dissolved in the solvent, and from an emulsion, where two immiscible liquids are mixed together. A colloid, on the other hand, is a stable mixture where the particles are evenly dispersed and do not settle.

      Emulsion

    • C.

      Suspension

    • D.

      Coloid

    Correct Answer
    D. Coloid
    Explanation
    A colloid is a mixture of two or more substances that do not fully dissolve or separate upon standing. It contains particles that are larger than those found in a solution, but smaller than those found in a suspension. These particles are not visible to the naked eye, which differentiates a colloid from a suspension. Additionally, a colloid can be stabilized by the addition of another chemical, preventing the particles from separating. Therefore, the given description matches the characteristics of a colloid.

    A healthy nail cuticle will typically be 

    • A.

      Loose & pliable

    • B.

      Loose & rigid

    • C.

      Rigid & pliable

    • D.

      Dry & pliable

    Correct Answer
    A. Loose & pliable
    Explanation
    A healthy nail cuticle will typically be loose and pliable because the cuticle is the layer of skin that protects the nail matrix and the nail bed from infection. If the cuticle is loose, it means that it is not tightly adhered to the nail plate, allowing it to move and flex along with the nail. This flexibility is important for the overall health of the nail as it allows for proper growth and prevents the cuticle from tearing or becoming damaged. Additionally, a pliable cuticle indicates that it is well-hydrated and moisturized, which is essential for maintaining healthy nails.

    Which bonds are broken and then reformed int a new shape in the processing action of both permanent waving and chemical relaxer services 

    • A.

      Hydrogen bonds

    • B.

      Disulfide bonds

    • C.

      S bonds

    • D.

      Salt bonds

    Correct Answer
    B. Disulfide bonds
    Explanation
    Disulfide bonds are broken and then reformed in the processing action of both permanent waving and chemical relaxer services. Disulfide bonds are strong chemical bonds that hold together the protein structure of the hair. In permanent waving, these bonds are broken using a reducing agent, allowing the hair to be reshaped into a new curl pattern. In chemical relaxer services, the disulfide bonds are broken using a relaxing agent, allowing the hair to be straightened. After the desired shape is achieved, the disulfide bonds are reformed using an oxidizing agent, locking in the new shape.

    Explanation
    Horizontal lines are design lines that are parallel to the floor and are used to create the appearance of width or bulk in the finished design. This is because horizontal lines visually expand the space and create a sense of stability and calmness. They are often used in interior design to make a room appear wider or to emphasize the width of furniture or architectural elements. In fashion design, horizontal lines can be used to create the illusion of broader shoulders or a wider waist.

    The most common ph range of an ammonium thioglycolate perm is 

    • A.

      4.5-5.5

    • B.

      8.2-9.6

    • C.

      6.5-7.5

    • D.

      9.6-10.8

    Correct Answer
    B. 8.2-9.6
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 8.2-9.6. This pH range is the most common for an ammonium thioglycolate perm because it provides the optimal conditions for the chemical reaction to occur. Ammonium thioglycolate is a reducing agent that breaks the disulfide bonds in the hair, allowing it to be reshaped. This reaction is most effective in a slightly alkaline environment, which is why the pH range of 8.2-9.6 is recommended. A pH below or above this range may result in an incomplete or uneven perm.

      Croquignole

    • B.

      Piggyback

    • C.

      Spiral

    • D.

      Tiered

    Correct Answer
    A. Croquignole
    Explanation
    The croquignole perm wrap or curling iron set is known for producing a curl that is looser at the scalp and tighter at the ends. This technique involves wrapping the hair around the curling iron in a spiral fashion, starting from the ends and moving towards the scalp. As a result, the curl is tighter at the ends where the hair was wrapped first, and looser at the scalp where the hair was wrapped last. This creates a natural-looking curl with more volume and movement.

      Concave

    • D.

      Spiral

    Correct Answer
    B. Straight
    Explanation
    A straight perm rod tool produces a uniform curl throughout the hair because it has a consistent diameter from top to bottom. This allows the hair to wrap around the rod evenly, resulting in a consistent curl pattern. In contrast, convex, concave, and spiral perm rods have varying diameters, which can create different curl patterns and variations in the final result.

    Correct Answer
    D. Elasticity test/ pull test
    Explanation
    The elasticity test, also known as the pull test, is used to determine the hair's suitability to receive a permanent treatment. This test involves gently pulling a strand of hair to see how much it stretches and returns to its original length. Hair with good elasticity is more likely to withstand the chemical process of a permanent treatment without breaking or becoming damaged. Therefore, the elasticity test is an important step in determining if the hair is strong and healthy enough to undergo a permanent treatment.
