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.

  It’s easy to get lost in the jungle of hair products. Styling your hair should be easy, and with the right hair products, the right amount, and yes a little bit of time you can get the results you wish for. Using too many products can actually have the opposite effect. The more products you use, the more buildup you’ll acquire on your scalp. Buildup itself clogs pores and does no good for your hair. Consistent with this idea, less is sometimes actually more. We need to go back to the basics: cleansing, hydrating, protecting, styling, and finishing – here are the five essentials you really need for amazing hair. Shampoo & Conditioner Probably a no brainer but picking the right shampoo and conditioner is crucial for having great hair. It doesn’t only help you build a stronger foundation, but can also help you restore moisture if your hair has been damaged by color, chemical processing or heat styling. Consult with your hairdresser what works best for your specific hair type.  And if your hair doesn't have any specific needs you can use a shampoo/conditioner from Oribe Signature, or label M honey & oat shampoo and conditioner Heat Protector A golden rule for healthy hair is spelt heat protection. The product forms a protective barrier over the cuticle on the hair strand which prevents heat damage and enables you to maintain a healthy mane. Prep your locks with this game changer every time before you use any type of styling tools. Imperial blow out from Oribe and heat protection spray from Label.m are few of our suggestions. Finishing Spray So you managed to get yourself an amazing hairstyle. Now what? Invest in a good finishing spray to get the texture you want and to make your style last longer. The impermeable spray from Oribe will protect your hair from humidity and Label.m Sea Salt Spray to create texture and natural waves. Hair Mask Either if it’s to add moisture, fight frizz or build strength – a hair mask should always be a part of your hair care routine. You want to ensure that you’re giving your hair the perfect base to create any look and get the most out of your styling products. To maintain healthy hair, you should treat yourself with a hair mask at least every ten days. Consult your hairstylist before choosing a product, but we suggest Oribe Masque for Beautiful Color or label.m Intense Mask for moisturizing. Are you making these 5 common hair washing mistakes?
