Hair Relaxers: Breaking Nature's Bonds

Thanks to hair relaxers, you can walk into a salon curly and leave straight. Zoom in on the chemistry of your curls with Groupon?s introduction.

Human hair is flexible enough to run wild as a mountain stream one day and fall as straight as water over the Hoover Dam the next. But to make lasting changes to its texture, you need to go beyond the reach of styling tools down to the chemical level. All hair is made of keratin, a hard protein that?s also central to our skin, nails, and exoskeletons. To form a single hair, keratin molecules link together in different patterns with the help of three types of chemical bonds: hydrogen bonds and salt bonds, both of which break easily in water and reform when dry, and disulphide bonds, which can only be broken by certain chemicals. In straight hair, the disulphide bonds are evenly aligned. In curly hair, however, the bonds occur irregularly and at odd angles, causing the hair to twist and kink on its way down.

When you style your hair with heat or water alone, you break the weaker hydrogen and salt bonds to allow your do to take a new shape. Once water touches your hair, however, the bonds reform in their customary way, and you?re back where you started. Chemical relaxers, therefore, work by dissolving the hair's tough, waterproof disulphide bonds and preventing them from reforming in their normal pattern.

The most powerful hair relaxers contain sodium hydroxide, otherwise known as lye. Given lye?s presence in drain openers and oven cleaners, you might guess that it can be quite harsh on human skin, which is why no-lye relaxers made from guanidine hydroxide are also common. There is a trade-off, however: some find that lye relaxers are harder on the scalp but gentler on hair, and work more quickly so that you can get back to staring at your hair in the mirror sooner. An experienced stylist can recommend the best method for your hair.

Among the center’s many services are physical therapy, nutrition, and massage therapy, which work together to help promote a bodily system free of pain and diseases.

Kenneth Sowinski's attraction to the field of Chinese medicine stemmed from his interest in kung fu and aikido. Thankfully, kicking and punching have nothing to do with the treatments at North Hills Acupuncture Clinic, where Kenneth helps patients find natural pain relief with holistic techniques. One such technique?known as "Balance Method Acupuncture"?involves placing fine needles at specific points in the body's extremities. This encourages the body to work in harmony with itself, restoring balance from head to toe. North Hills also specializes in Chinese herbal medicine, which may treat everything from the common cold to an extreme hankering for hot tea.

Retta Flagg was introduced to the reparative benefits of massage while recovering from a back injury. Once she was back in tip-top shape, Retta decided to pursue a career in massage therapy, focusing her initial training on styles designed to treat injuries and chronic pain. Only a few years after completing massage school in 1986, she started a 10-year career teaching neuromuscular technique at the very same institution she attended—the Pittsburgh School of Massage Therapy.

Retta now owns and operates The Healing Touch, a place that clients frequent for stress-relieving treatments ranging from Swedish and pregnancy massages to paraffin therapy baths and onsite corporate chair massages. All the wellness center's therapists are graduates of accredited schools, boast more than 600 hours of training, and actively improve their skills through continuing education and thumb-wrestling tournaments.
