From: Dry Hair (220.127.116.11)
I just spoke to the owner of Grupo Creativo, a salon on Staten Island about Nano Max.
From what I could gather, the technology is similar to that of Tanagra (using a machine with nanotechnology to impart tiny molecules of a treatment into the hair)The main difference is that whereas Tanagra mostly infuses protein into the hair, Nano Max has lots of different treatments, including one for protein, one for moisture and one for shine. It's also possible to do combinations of the treatments.
The owner explained to me that the molecules in most conditioning products are too big to penetrate deep into the hair. He said for severely dehydrated hair, usually three treatments are required and by the third, the hair is pretty much healed of damage, dehydration or whatever the problem might be.
I did some reasearch on the web, and it sounds like there's some major contention between the two companies -- NanoMax and Tanagra.
The treatment sounds too good to be true .... but if there is even a chance that it might work, I'd be willing to try it.
Right now, I think this salon is the only one in the U.S. that has the machine (Nanomax, that is). In fact, it still works on European voltage. He said that soon he's going to be traveling around the country to promote the product, though.
He also said that he does destination visits, in which several interested in getting the treatment will pool their money to fly him to them, rather than them having to fly to NYC to do the treatment three times (the treatments need to be spaced three days apart).
Anyway, just thought I'd share this info and I'd love to know if anybody in NYC has tried it.
