DID YOU KNOW
Blow-drying and styling your hair works by changing hydrogen bonds (inside the hair structure) which help alter the shape. Water also affects the hydrogen bonds, that’s why humidity has an adverse effect on your hair.
Hair is not a living structure, the only part of the structure that is ‘living’ is the bulb which is inside the scalp.
Shampoo (as we know it in liquid form) was introduced into the marketplace in 1952. Prior to the launch shampoo came in block form like soap.
Your hair is made up of approximately 50% carbon, 20% oxygen, 17% nitrogen, 6% hydrogen, and 5% sulphur. Hair also has trace elements of magnesium, arsenic, iron, chromium plus additional minerals and metals. (and here’s you thinking it was just hair!!)
In 1928 Brylcreem was launched. The first men’s grooming product was a blend of mineral oil, beeswax and water. Styling products have come a long way since then but Brylcreem is still an immensely popular product.
