Students read about the process of hair growth beginning with the joining together of amino acids.
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.
In this animated object, learners examine the properties of the peptide bond and how the bond relates to the structure of hair.
Learners examine the structure and function of skin including the production of melanin.
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.
In this animated object, learners examine the properties of the hydrogen bond and how the bond changes when hair is shampooed or styled.
In this animated object, learners examine how changes in pH affect the salt bonds in strands of hair.
In this interactive learning object, students view a basic wheelchair and identify its parts in a click and drag exercise.
