Professional Hair Care Products And The Affects Of Nanotechnology

Feb 16, 2008
Nanotechnology. nan'otechnol'ogee n.

Manipulating individual molecules smaller than 100 nanometers and the associated branch of engineering.

Nanotechnology is the science and technology of precisely manipulating the structure of matter at the molecular level. The term nanotechnology embraces many different fields and specialties, including engineering, chemistry, electronics, and medicine, among others, but all are concerned with bringing existing technologies down to a very small scale, measured in nanometers.

Up until recently, most industrial products are created by pushing piles of millions of atoms together-by mixing, grinding, heating-a very imprecise process. With the ability to manipulate molecules that measure a mere billionth of a meter, the options are unlimited. With the advances in nanotechnology, scientists can now pick up individual atoms to assemble them into simple structures or cause specific chemical reactions. (The prefix nano- comes from the Greek word nanos, which meant "little old man" or "dwarf.") Nanotubes made of carbon are being investigated for a variety of industrial and research purposes. Propellers have been attached to molecular motors, and electricity has been conducted through nanowires.

Harnessing the forces that operate at the scale of the nanometer, such as the van der Waals force, as well as changes in the quantum states of particles, the new engineering purposes are vast. Great promise is held out for improvments in the quality of life, the least of which are the treatments of disease and greater efficiency in computer data storage and processing.

As in the cult film of the 70's Fantastic Voyage, we may be able one day to infuse autonomous robots, or nanobots, into human bodies to repair cells and cure cancers, perhaps even extending the human life span by many years. Of course, we are still far away from these realities, but these technologies are the key to their development.

As with the dark side of science fiction, some scientists caution that these nanobots could possibly be created to replicate themselves lik living organisms.

"Quoted from Dictionary.com"

So how does this apply to the hair and salon industry? Quite nicely I suggest.

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.

Perms and colors have always relied on the chemical process to open the hair shaft to do their job. Professional hair care products have performed in this manner since the early part of the last century. "Neutralizing" or stopping the chemical process was then performed to halt the chemical process, and topical conditioners were the only option to try to return the hair shaft to it's previous state.

Chemical processes by their very nature, damage the cuticle layer. Conditioners, smoothing products and moisturizers help rectify this problem to a degree, but cannot return the hair shaft to it's previous state of pre-chemical process lustre.

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.

We can anticipate every major professional hair care product manufacturer will undoubtedly embrace this technology. Molecules that measure a billionth of a meter are logically more capable of follicle penetration and will result in better, more effective products.

Pureology Nanoworks leads the industry. Nanoworks Shampoo and Conditioner, along with Nanoglaze, Nanoworks Restorative Treatment, Nanoworks ShineLuxe, and NanoWax - all remarkable products that have set the bar very high for their competitors. Truly in a class by themselves.

These products carry the most premium price of all that we carry at www.SalonProDirect.com. Our customers are undeterred - they find that the results and are worth the expense - and they constatnly come back for more.

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 from the likes of Vidal Sassoon and Jhirmack to products we can't even imagine as yet.
