With today's endless product options and techniques to choose from, it can be somewhat perplexing as to why it’s important to invest money in hair health. In order to save money in the long run and maintain beautiful, healthy hair for years to come, it’s key to invest in both the right stylist and the right products. At Fabio Scalia, we utilize proven techniques that will help bring your hair back to all its glory.  Your hair is complex Your hair is an important part of your overall image. Understanding the complex components of your hair is something an expert stylist can help you with. Everyone requires different products and styling techniques to maintain optimal health and appearance. No two individuals may be able to perform the same exact hair care routine. Drugstore brands or products with various harmful ingredients may not only be stripping the hair of vital nutrients; they can also cause long term damage by weakening the overall structure of the follicle. This causes hair growth to slow down, as well as dull hair and split ends to show up in its place. Especially during months where we experience colder temperatures. Extreme temperatures weaken the hair structure and lead to a dry, itchy scalp. It’s fundamental to use high-quality products that prevent breakage and keep your hair moisturized. Using the right products Simply using the same shampoo or conditioner as a friend or family member can actually be causing long term damage to your hair. According to the Journal for Investigative Dermatology, “Loss of luster, frizz, split ends, and other hair problems are particularly prevalent among people who repeatedly alter the natural style of their hair or among people with hair that is intrinsically weak” (Sinclair, 2007). Products like Kérastase offer a myriad of products that restore and protect your hair right down to the follicle. We offer products that are ideal for both renewing the look of your hair, as well as rebuilding its structure. Importantly, science notes that using certain hair products is fundamental to improving hair health.    Investing in the right tools In order to understand why spending a little extra cash from the start will help you save lots in the long run, it’s important to know what your hair is comprised of. Hair is made up of a protein called Keratin, also found in our nails and skin, according to L’Oreal Paris. The actual structure of the hair consists of a variety of complex structures, from the hair follicle to the blub, as well as the hair shaft, where your cells reproduce to create more hair (see this link for more info).   According to Design Essentials, various hair tools and chemical processes can damage the cuticle layer of the hair. That’s why it’s crucial to invest in both the right stylist and the best products that are ideal for your hair type. Not all products are made with the best ingredients. Your diet, stress level, and various other factors also play a major role in hair growth and appearance. Additionally, taking a daily supplement, such as Nutrafol, sold at Fabio Scalia Salon, can restore hair growth and maintain hair wellness.   "Haircare can be complicated, but it doesn’t have to be!

If you want healthy, full and shiny hair, your scalp needs to be free from unnecessary clogging and pollution. In last week’s blog post, our Fabio Scalia salon team talked about The Kérastase Products You Need and Why. In addition to the “must-have” products mentioned last week, Kérastase has developed a new essential in-salon service for healthy and clean manes. The “Fusio Scrub” deeply cleanses the hair and scalp from dirt, grease, and pollution. In other words, it’s your solution against lifeless lengths.  Depending on if your scalp is oily or dry and sensitive, your hairdresser will pick the scrub prescription for you. If you tend to get oily scalp quickly, you would go for the “Scrub Energisant. + recommended hair oil.” It is an energizing sea salt scrub that provides long-lasting results as it deeply cleanses the scalp from dirt and other impurities. If you tend to have a dry and sensitive scalp, then the “Scrub Apaisant” + recommended hair oil would be your pick. This one also cleanses the scalp on a deep level but in contrast to the previous mentioned, this one is relaxing with sweet orange peel with calming and hydrating effects.  The following steps in this in-salon service would be the fusio-dose treatment that will give your hair that extra boost it needs. This, followed by a primer to protect your hair. In order to maintain the long-lasting results, clients are recommended the take-home scrub and use it once a week.  Want a healthy and detoxified scalp?

Over the past months, our hair has put up with dehydrating agents such as the sun, chlorine and saltwater. This could have a huge effect on the health of your hair and scalp and in the worst-case scenario lead to unnecessary hair thinning. There is a shift in season and with it comes a new hair wellness routine. In this week’s blog post, we tell you how to bring your hair back to life.  Condition, Condition, Condition  The key to hair wellness is proper conditioning. If your hair is really dehydrated, we recommend doing 2 to 3 treatments that fulfill your needs and gives your hair the moisture it needs. In our New York City locations, we offer the very popular Milbon treatments as well as take-home masks from Oribe and Kérastase. Remember, breakage travels inside the cortex which leads us to tip #2. Get regular trims If you want a healthy and thick mane, the scissors are your best friend. Make sure to be consistent with your trims so your split ends won’t work their way up to your strands.  “Waiting too long between your appointments will cause split ends and breakage higher up on the strand. This will result in your stylist needing to give you a shorter style than if you get consistent trims,” says Fabio Scalia. For overall wellness: Invest in Nutrafol  At Fabio Scalia, we focus on long-term growth and results. It’s important to have in mind that stress, diet and environmental toxins are all factors proven to compromise the wellness of your hair. At our salons, we offer our clients Nutrafol, a 100% drug-free supplement to prevent hair thinning. It’s perfect for those who find it hard to cover all vitamins needed for optimal nutrition in their daily diet.

At Fabio Scalia salons, we like to stay current with the latest hair trends. We are committed to perfecting the way people style, wear and live with their hair. For this week's blog post, we turn our attention to the Spring/Summer 2020 collections from New York Fashion Week to spotlight the best new hair trends this season.   Fabio, tell us about your Fashion Week experience this year I had the privilege to join the Kérastase team at New York Fashion week this year. As expected it was very busy but also very inspiring. As an artistic director my creativity thrives in that type of environment. Could you give us a sneak peek of upcoming hair trends?  I observed lots of natural waves that mimicked the natural texture of the hair. My team and I, created many looks with face-framing waves with straight ends. The final look gives off a different feeling compared to the curls that we are used to seeing. In the past months, I've noticed hair accessories such as statement clips, scarves, and headbands are becoming a big hair trend. It's a great way to accent your beautiful hairdo. It also works as a statement piece. How do you style your hair with accessories?  In my opinion, the hair itself is an accessory and adding little extra bling or a scarf adds another layer of movement and dimension to the overall look.  Got it! last question– what is the ‘must-have’ hair products from fashion week?  One product that I cannot work without is the Kérastase V.I.P Volume-in-powder. It gives the hair immediate body, volume, and grip. In addition to this, the L’incroyable blowdry heat lotion as well as the L'incroyable crème, both by Kerastase are my must-haves. These products contain heat-sensitive micro wax technology that allows the hair to set and re-set styles easily. The products also have 450° thermo-protection, which is crucial in order to maintain the integrity of the hair.    Schedule your consultation with us today in Soho Schedule your consultation with us today in Brooklyn Heights Fabio Scalia is an upscale hair salon in SoHo and Brooklyn Heights, New York.
