In this animated activity, learners read an explanation of the four different modalities (currents) used in electrotherapy.
Chemical Hair Bonds: An Assessment
Learners read this review of chemical hair bonds after completing learning objects on the peptide, disulfide, salt, and hydrogen bonds. Students may e-mail their quiz answers to their instructor.
The Peptide Bond
In this animated object, learners examine the properties of the peptide bond and how the bond relates to the structure of hair.
The Salt Bond
In this animated object, learners examine how changes in pH affect the salt bonds in strands of hair.
The Disulfide Bond
In this animated lesson, learners read about the disulfide bond, the second strongest chemical bond in the hair. This bond can only be altered by chemicals.
The Hydrogen Bond
In this animated object, learners examine the properties of the hydrogen bond and how the bond changes when hair is shampooed or styled.
