The Propylene glycol hair detox myth

Propylene glycol is in every commercial shampoo like Aloe Rid and Does 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 pseudo scientist who as far as i can tell randomly picked it off the ingredient list of aloe shampoos assuming it must be the magic ingredient.  SORRY but their is no magic ingredient its just shampoo no different than suave aloe for 4.00 . 
Ask yourself this, IF PG was so special that you would pay 150.00 plus for a shampoo why not buy a whole bottle of PG from a VAP shop for 5.00 ?  

AGAIN  shampoos works only for people with LOW to NO use.  THC requires repeat use to even get to the hair as it does not incorporate well at all. The shampoo folks also are ALWAYS part of the mac method cult who destroy your hair with crap like TIDE and bleach and god know what other random list of nonsense. ALL METHODS are made to sell scampoo.

Most the ignorant kids that say it worked online didnt need anything , they assume the joint they smoked mattered  ONE TIME THC WILL NOT SHOW. If they were just barely over the threshold,  ANY shampoo and yes a bunch of household item gives a %30 reduction and may get them under the wire but YOU CAN GET BETTER  RESULTS  form ONE SINGLE HAIR RAZOR TREATMENT  than 50 aloe rid shampoo washes.








  1. Hi. I'm very interested in the chemistry of what would open up the hair cuticles to truly get to the cortex. Any ideas?

    1. your repeating useless words that OTHERS use to sound like they do something. "opening the cortex" ? MEANS NOTHING noone opens the cortex and any thing lower than a ph of 7 opens the cuticle but that has little to do with anything. WE METABOLIZE THE DRUGS AND METABOLITES.

      we are the only ones that can tell you exactly how many treatment yo need based on your use history or pre lab test numbers . NOBODY ELSE CAN DO THAT , because NOONE ELSE HAS A LEGIT PRODUCT

    1. yes it destroys the drugs and metabolites so it is not detected and you pass a hair follicle test
