Is there an error

I made a protein to straighten the hair, the proportion of glycosylic acid is 30%, and it was added at 40 degrees Celsius, and when the experiment did not give any result, only moisturizing the hair, please help

    What is glycosylic acid?
    What do you expect it to do?
  • Simply, to start from my information space, does pH have anything to do with the effectiveness of hair straightening in the product

    No, because there is nothing in your brew which would be effective for hair straightening... unless you mistake the misnomer glycosylic acid for thioglycolic acid... then it would be yes.
    To be honest (no hard feelings, K?), I don't have the impression that there is any information space of yours to start from (again, no offense).
    Use the search bar at the top right of this forum, you'll find good threads/posts regarding hair straighteners and how they work including (if memory serves me right) book recommendations, too.

    I guess it is Glyoxylic acid which comes as 50% solution and is being used as an alternative to formaldehyde based straighteners.

    @Chemist77 Sounds plausible. Didn't think of that one.
