November 2019

Let’s face it, not all of us wake up in the morning feeling refreshed or ready to start the day. For those of us who are constantly in a hurry, neglecting our haircare can become increasingly common, especially during the months when we experience colder weather. Identifying the right routine and products to utilize when you’re in a pinch doesn’t have to be difficult. At Fabio Scalia Salon, our expert hairstylists have compiled some great tips to utilize when you're crunched for time.    Don’t wash your hair every day! We say this a lot, but it’s an important topic to stress. Washing your hair excessively can strip natural oils from your hair and cause a dry, itchy scalp. If you must wash your hair every day, use a small amount on the scalp or condition the ends of the hair and rinse out. This will help prevent your hair from looking dull and your scalp from becoming flaky and itchy. Moisturizing conditioner creams from Kerastase or Oribe are ideal products to use to prevent drying of the scalp and hair.    Use your fingers as a comb Your hands can serve as a great tool when styling your hair, especially when you’re crunched for time in the morning. A good haircare tip, pull down your hair with your fingers in a fork shape while drying. Do this on various sections and use a large round brush to remove excess water. Additionally, using various products from Kerastase or Oribe can help quicken the drying process. An anti humidity spray from Oribe can serve as an important styling product to prevent frizziness, as well as serve as a light texturizer. For those with curly hair, use a mist spray and a curl cream activator to prevent frizziness and to add additional hydration to your hair. Avoid using alcoholic based hair sprays, as they dry out the hair and can cause damage to the hair follicle.    And one last haircare tip

With colder temperatures approaching, it’s time to pull out your winter coats, cuddle up with pup on a cold night and prepare for the holidays. Colder weather is synonymous with drying of the skin on the face and body. But many forget that your hair and scalp can also suffer from freezing temperatures. According to the Oxford Online Pharmacy, dehydration from the cold weather and excessive indoor heat can cause brittle hair and a dry scalp, leading to long term damage. Additionally, wearing hats can place stress on hair strands. Thankfully, at Fabio Scalia Salon, your hair salon in Brooklyn Heights and Soho, we have three simple solutions to prevent negative side effects of cold temperatures on your hair. These easy steps can protect the hair and scalp, as well as provide vital nourishment right down to the root.    USE A HIGH-QUALITY HAIR MASQUE  Hair masque (mask) serve as one of the main defenses in combating breakage and split ends caused by cold temperatures. Their purpose is multifaceted, proven to protect and soften both the hair and scalp. At Fabio Scalia Salon, we offer both in-salon and at-home hair masque treatments that revitalize damaged hair and soften the scalp. Some of our hairstylists’ favorite masques (and ones we use on ourselves and clients every day) are from the Kérastase line, available at Fabio Scalia Salon. Kérastase offers a plethora of masques designed for a variety of hair types. The Masquintense Fine Hair Mask works wonders on those with finer hair, while the Masque Magistral is perfectly formulated for those with severely damaged hair. Notably, the Kerastase brand is a leader in providing the highest quality products with the most natural ingredients. The Aura Botanica line is paraben-free and 96 percent of the ingredients are all-natural. The Aura Botanica Baume Miracle (hair balm) nourishes both dry hair, as well as the skin, so it’s a no brainer!   USE HAIR OIL As if the Kerastase brand wasn’t already perfect, their hair oil conditioners are literally out of this world. Le Fondant Conditioner is an ultimate elixir designed for fine to normal hair, so nearly everyone can use it! Its benefits are numerous. Infused with marula, camellia and argan oils, it keeps your hair shiny, nourished and smooth. Le Fondant Conditioner, among other products, is available at Fabio Scalia Salon. Fabio recommends using Le Fondant as a pre-conditioner before jumping in the shower. Simply apply it to wet hair and let the conditioner sit for a few minutes before rinsing. Make sure to comb and distribute the conditioner evenly, as suggested by our expert hairstylists and the Kerastase team.   USE LESS HAIRSPRAY AND MOUSSE As noted earlier, hair can become damaged by excessive cold and heat. Unfortunately, some hair sprays and hair mousses may cause additional damage during colder weather. They can dry both the hair and scalp, leading to dull looking hair and even flaky skin on the scalp, according to Stuart Phillips Holistic Hairdressing. Fabio and our other expert hairstylists recommend using less hair spray and mousses during excessive cold. Kerastase and Oribe offer a wide variety of hair sprays and mousses that protect your hair and allow you to style it perfectly. You can find a wide range of hair sprays and mousses that won’t cause damage to your hair at Fabio Scalia Salon.    Schedule your appointment with us today in Soho Schedule your appointment with us today in Brooklyn Heights Fabio Scalia is an upscale hair salon in SoHo and Brooklyn Heights, New York.
