Cationic surfactants are versatile molecules with a positively charged head and a hydrophobic tail. They are often found in hair conditioners and fabric softeners, where their positive charge helps bind to negatively charged surfaces like hair and clothing fibers, resulting in improved softness and manageability. Their antimicrobial properties also make them useful in some disinfectants and sanitizing agents.
