The goal of this Science NetLinks lesson is for students to answer the central question: How does understanding the chemistry of hair care, including the role of pH, help in the development of better hair care products? In order to do this, students will do hands-on activities with shampoo and hair samples, as well as read an online article about the pH of hair care products.
