Thanks to all who responded to my previous question.

I went to New York this weekend to get the NanoMax treatment (which is kind of like Tanagra -- using nanotechnology to repair hair). The salon owner recommended the "intense" treatment which, I think, is mostly keratin.

I was a bit nervous about getting a keratin treatment as I felt my main issue was dryness, but he said my hair was extremely pourous and needed to be repaired first.

It's hard to tell if it's made a big difference or not. My hair is definitely smoother (but it was blown dry and ironed on low heat -- so that would probably make it a bit smoother). It does not feel significantly softer or shinier, but I would say overall it looks a little bit healthier. Again, it's hard to tell weather this is because it's been blown straight or because it actually is healthier.

I wash it tomorrow and then I'm going to have two more treatments spread out over the next four weeks. I think the next two will be the "hydrating" ones, so hopefully those will help with moisture and shine.

Anyway, I e-mailed the managing director of NanoMax today to ask him about shampoos. I'm supposed to use sulfate-free ones and I wanted to know if, like with BKT, one should avoid sodium chloride as well. He replied that salt was extremely harmful to one's hair and can make it porous.

Well, that got me thinking about the fact that I have a whole-house water filtration system that utilizes salt. Everything I've read suggests that water softeners actually make the hair healthier and softer.

I'm wondering, however, if
the salt has made my hair more porous and has contributed to the damage. Maybe the average head of hair can withstand a little salt but it makes Japanese straightened hair too porous?

Just a theory -- and probably an incorrect one -- but when I think about it, I did start having hair issues around the same time that I started using a water softener. I'm wondering if anybody with straightened hair has had issues with "softened" water causing damage/ increasing porosity.
