Welcome to BACK2MYROOTS B2MR
Created as a source of advise education knowledge skill experience a place to share thoughts post comments and idea’s on matters relating to hair colouring skill and techniques and anything industry related.
I had the good fortune recently to have a discussion with some one from Nanokeratin systems who was kind enough to reply to my E-mail asking question about the product and it’s hair straightening properties.
The new trend name for this process is the Brazilian Blow Dry: I find this a tad generic.
Molecules of current size are limited in their ability to penetrate the hair shaft have been limited to the delicate game of chemical invasion by way of perms and colors. Shampoo and conditioning products have historically performed their job topically and have had limited ability to do much else.
Nano technology has been an engineering break through in the hair industry for a while reducing the molecular size of colour pigment to now reducing the keratin Molecule thus making it possible to perform services without having to overly open the cuticle.
Having a basic understanding of keratin and the role it plays in the hair’s structure proved to be most helpful in understanding the Nanokeratin System product.
The Nanokeratin sytemis an innovative development at the forefront of technology that utilizes Nano-molecular keratin, The name Nanokeratin means nano-molecules of keratin, a substance that successfully repairs the core of damaged hair. The nano-molecules of nanokeratin penetrate hair follicles and repair each strand.Nanokeratin system is a miniscule substance and each nano-molecule is 1/1000 of 1/1,000,000 the size of an original keratin molecule particles are so miniscule that millions of them can be gathered onto a pin head!
Minute traces of vapor with extraordinary penetration capabilities enter and completely fill damaged hair with nano-molecular keratin particles. During the next step those nano-molecules are locked into the hair as additional vapor is infused, thus creating permanent, non-soluble keratin, just like natural keratin!
Regular conditioners and hair treatments sometimes contain protein molecules, but these are too large to penetrate the core of your hair or to be precise. they naturally over the course of time are rinsed out each time you shampoo. Anything with a larger molecular weight cannot be readily absorbed through the cuticle in to the hair many products try to attain this by changing the pH of the hair in an effort to open the cuticle more! even keratin derived from natural sources such as animal, vegetable or mineral will only lie on or coat the outer shaft of the hair they are to large to be absorbed.
Professional hair care products have always relied on the process of opening up the hair shaft chemically, facilitating the color or perm process, then “neutralizing” or stopping the chemical process thus halting the action.
The chemical process has always had the downside of “blossoming the hair shaft – causing what we see as frizz conditioners smoothing products, and moisturizers help to smooth the cuticle layer, but never fully return it to it’s previous pre-chemical luster.
As the world of professional hair care products evolves, we will see nanotechnology play an ever increasing role. Minimizing chemical damage while maximizing health and shine. feeling healthier and easier to style The Nanokeratin System appears to revitalizes hair.
The Nanokeration method utilizes the same protein that is found in your hair, keratin, but in its most minute size, thus it is locked into the hair strand where it repairs and nourishes hair immediately. Nanokeratin is simply the most advanced technology – the fastest and most efficient method in the world to repair, revitalize and care for your hair. All hair types can benefit from this innovative technology, but the results are particularly impressive in cases of severely damaged hair.
Nanokeratin is an innovative, advanced technology that was developed for those men and women who are interested in straightening their hair. Nano-technology has also been successfully applied to the deposit of hair colour molecules the red molecule is the hardest to get into the hair due to it’s size nano Technology has helped hair scientists and chemist improve success and deposit of the red colour pigment molecules greatly
Nanokeratin is the basis of the innovative hair straightening method called Nanokeratin sysytem this method utilizes a nano-molecular substance, nanokeratin, which penetrates hair follicles and completely coats your hair. Hair stylists perform the process using an innovative hair straightening device. This tool allows the nanokeratin nano-molecules to penetrate, coat and repair the damaged hair core and ultimately straightens the hair strand.
In our discussion i equated this process to having a slice of Swiss cheese and spreading cream cheese over the top thus filling all the holes I then equated the heat and flat iron process as smoothing down the cuticle whilst hardening the keratin i presume the dissolving substance to be an agent that also closes the cuticle and restores the ph to the hair?
Once the hair strand is coated with a layer of nanokeratin molecules, a dissolving substance is vaporized through an additional process. At the end of this process a
reaction called polymerization occurs, filling the hair fissures and making the hair both durable and flexible.
Who is suitable for it is suggested any one as i understand more i will share and inform you with more
I really can’t imagine any manufacturer of professional hair care products not embracing this technology in the near future. Molecules that measure a mere billionth of a meter will result in products that are infinitely more capable of doing the job intended.
Nanotechnology will undoubtedly bring better and broader lines. The marketplace will fill every niche we could possibly imagine as the world of professional hair care products moves from the world of pH balanced formulations that we all came to know and love.
