Learning Happens at River Bend
A Day in the Life of Cosmetology
The seniors from Patti Eaton's Cosmetology class went to Lisa Jone's Oxbow Middle School forensic's science class and taught them about the physical structure of hair. The hair analysis is one of the most respected tests to determine the cause of death. The protein in your hair permanently holds the composition of your body tissues. By analyzing your hair, you can tell what toxins have accumulated in your body tissues and what vitamins and minerals are out of balance. Students discussed the effects that hair lightening has on the chemical composition of the hair. Postmortem, you can tell if the lightening came from a boxed product or was done by a professional; leading to witness questioning. Posters illustrated hair growth and color changes.
