We have known for years that the coconut tree is one of the most famous and most famous and abundant natural resources in the Philippines where we can benefit from all of its parts. Within those years, we, Filipinos are busy making our hair look and smell good because as for the us Filipinos, the most important of one’s personality is the hair. We have learned that by using one of the parts of the coconut tree which is the coconut meat that produces coconut milk, it will help the Filipinos improve hair growth, produce silky hair, stop hair fall, soften hair, serves as treatment to dandruff, and to prevent hair loss. Coconut milk tastes and smells just like coconuts where pungent odor remains when applied to the hair making it less acceptable. That is why women hesitate on using its benefits on hair. That is why the researchers chose this study to attempt to prove that by using the activated charcoal, it would help control the pungent odor of the coconut milk when applied to the hair making it more acceptable to the society.
B. Statement of the Problem
This study aims to find out if activated charcoal would help control the pungency of the coconut milk when applied to hair and to make it more acceptable to the society. Specific Problems:
1.Can activated charcoal effectively control the pungent odor of coconut milk? 2.Is there a significant difference among the characteristics of the coconut milk with activated charcoal in terms of: (a) controlling pungency (b) time of effective control 3.Which sample is most effective?
A.Sample A with no activated charcoal added
B.Sample B with 3 g activated charcoal added
C.Sample C with 5 g activated charcoal added
D.Sample D with 7 g activated charcoal added
C. Objective of the Study
This research aims to:
1.Determine if activated charcoal is effective in the odor control of coconut milk 2.Compare the characteristics of the coconut milk with activated charcoal in terms of: (a) controlling pungency (b) time of effective control 3.Determine which sample is most effective
D. Hypothesis of the Study
2.There is no significant difference among the characteristics of the coconut milk with activated charcoal in terms of: (a) controlling pungency (b) time of effective control 3.Sample D is the most effective sample.
E. Significance of the Study
This study will be conducted for all females to benefit from it. This study will help in the development of the coconut milk as an agent for hair treatment. With this study, females can go back to its organic way in treating their hair.
F. Scope and Delimitation of the Study
This research will be conducted at MSU-IIT Integrated Developmental School. This study is only limited to determine if activated charcoal can be used control the pungent odor of the coconut milk when applied to the hair. The coconut milk and the activated charcoal will be the only sample used in the experiment and it is only limited in applying to the hair of the fourth year student girls of MSU-IIT Integrated Developmental School. The treatments will be composed of different quantities of activated charcoal. The variables included are the characteristics of the coconut milk in terms of controlling pungency and time of effective control. The methods that will be performed in the experiment consist of grinding of the coconut fruit, extraction of coconut milk, addition of activated charcoal into the coconut milk, and filtering of the solution. This research will be conducted on S.Y. 2010-2011.
