Why do people put palm oil in their hair?

I've been putting oil in my hair since I had hair. Basically, it's mostly because it prevents you from getting dandruff because it keeps your scalp moist. Also, shampooing, conditioning, and burning you hair in every way possible dries the scalp. Plus, it makes your hair really soft and shiny. And if you live in the city, like New York, the oil protects you from getting something in your hair. And massage it in your scalp if you put oil in your hair. :)

No. Two entirely different things. Corn syrup in a lot of candies which divinity kind of is keeps sugar crystals from forming.

Equal parts water and sugar and cook it until it melts the sugar crystals and then slow boil it for a few minutes. Let it cool and it might work, no guarantee's.

Why are vegetable oils liquid while animal fats are solid?

Well, semantically speaking, if it's liquid at room temperature it's an oil and if it's solid at room temperature it's a fat, so in that sense the question answers itself.

However, the reason these very similar compounds have different melting points has to do with their structure. Both fats and oils have a long chain of carbon atoms in them (actually, they have three, but it's simpler if we just think about one).

In some, that long chain is saturated, meaning it has all the hydrogen atoms it can possibly hold. This means that every carbon-carbon bond is free to rotate, and it allows the chain to wiggle around into the best possible conformation to pack with all the other chains. This means it's easier for them to pack together into a solid form.

In others, that long chain is unsaturated, meaning that at least two carbons have a double bond between them. Double bonds cannot rotate, so that introduces a point in the chain where you can't just bend it any which way. This makes it harder to pack them together, so they tend to stay liquid at lower temperatures.

More than one double bond ("polyunsaturated") makes it even harder to pack the chains, so they have even lower melting points.

Also, there's one more subtle factor: a double bond can be in one of two possible conformations, either cis (shaped kind of like a fat V with a flat bottom) or trans (a kind of zig-zag shape, a little bit like the S in the logo of the band KISS or the double-sig markings worn by Nazi SS officers). The trans form packs a little more easily than the cis form does, which is why you hear people talking about "trans fats" ... everything else being equal, the trans form will melt at a higher temperature than the cis for.

Vegetable oils are often polyunsaturated, animal fats are typically saturated. If you see the term "hydrogenated" or "partially hydrogenated" it means that the (usually vegetable) oil or fat has been treated in a way that removes the double bonds, making it more like an animal fat. The one health advantage that hydrogenated vegetable oils like Crisco have over animal fats such as lard is that they contain no cholesterol.

How do you clean vegetable oil from grout in floor tile?

Here's what I would try. First put cat litter on it and let it sit for a day. You may have to repeat this. Then for any that's left, get some Dawn dish washing liquid (other brands can stain) and a stiff toothbrush. Work it in and wet it and sop it out. As many times a necessary. I've never done this on grout but I've gotten oil out of concrete this way.
