Wonderful. Thanks for the clarification. I remember Hydrogen Bonding from Chemistry Class so that makes perfect sense.

Thank you for the question Carlita.

The article referenced hot oil treatments on the hair "shaft" so let's explore that a little further to answer your question (or at least part of it) - shall we?

Oils have similar chemical make-up which affects their physical behavior. They are made up of long and large molecules but what is important to note here is that oil is not capable of 'hydrogen bonding' which is really what is causing the water and oil to repel one another.

So, in this case, coconut oil will be unable to get past the water already in the hair.

We will be discussing the hair "root" soon . . . . . . stay tune

More Hair!
