The Propylene glycol hair detox myth


Why high Propylene glycol shampoos like Aloe Rid Do nothing for hair detox 


Well this is what Propylene glycol Really is . 

Propylene glycol is a clear, colorless and hygroscopic liquid.

The freezing point of water is depressed when mixed with propylene glycol owing to the effects of dissolution of a solute in a solvent (freezing-point depression); in general, glycols are non-corrosive, have very low volatility and very low toxicity.
PPG is used in many formulations for polyurethanes. It is used as a rheology modifier.
PPG is used as a surfactant, wetting agent, dispersant in leather finishing.
PPG is also employed as a tuning reference and calibrant in mass spectrometry.
PPG is used as a primary ingredient in the manufacture of paintballs.

Forty-five percent of propylene glycol produced is used as chemical feedstock for the production of unsaturated polyester resins

Propylene glycol is also used in various edible items such as coffee-based drinks, liquid sweeteners, ice cream, whipped dairy products and soda.[12][13] Vaporizers used for delivery of pharmaceuticals or personal-care products often include propylene glycol among the ingredients.[5] Propylene glycol is used as a solvent in many pharmaceuticals, including oralinjectable and topical formulations, such as for diazepam and lorazepam which are insoluble in water.
Like ethylene glycol, propylene glycol is able to lower the freezing point of water, and so it is used as aircraft de-icing fluid.
 Propylene glycol is frequently used as a substitute for ethylene glycol in low toxicity, environmentally friendly automotive antifreeze.


Propylene glycol is just a wetting agent as far as shampoo is concerned 

 A substance is referred to as a wetting agent if it lowers the surface tension of a liquid and thus allows it to spread more easily.

It has no special powers or abilities to break down drug metabolites . The myth came about from all the interweb psudo scientist who as far as i can tell randomly picked it off the ingredient list of aloe rid assuming it must be the magic ingredient .  SORRY but their is no magic ingredient aloe rid is just shampoo no different than suave aloe for 2.00 . 


otherwise you could just go to the vap shop or order a bottle online pour on your head and walla your magically clean .  

AGAIN aloe rid works only for people with LOW THC use . Because THC requires repeat use to even get to the hair as it does not incorporate well at all . the aloe rid folks also are ALWAYS part of the mac method cult who screw their hair up with crap like TIDE and bleach and god know what other random list of nonsense that if they have low levels and apply this rap it will lower levels by %40 and if you are only %30 from cut off it worked but it WILL NOT WORK FOR HEAVY USE OR HARD DRUG USE.  

Does Hair Razor use propylene glycol ?  of course , how else are we going to liquefy the Salicylic acid ,...but then thats real chemistry stuff not interweb stoner nonsense .
