Best Anti Frizz Hair Products

Antonio Diaz, a stylist for Alicia Keys, says of the Salon AKS Anti Frizz products “”These products hydrate hair, tame frizz and smooth curls. I love that they’re loaded with natural ingredients like coconut water and sunflower extract. Simply shampoo and condition while your hair is still wet, then detangle any curls by using your fingers — don’t reach for a comb or brush! They’ll only lead to breakage” Thanks for the ❤️

AKS Must Haves….. and Why! by Mika

Ever wish you had all the inside information to every hair product and every hair service ever available?! Well, WE do! Want in? Read on…..

Gloss –  The bang trim of haircolor. Glosses are great for the midway point in between your highlight appointments. They will refresh the tone of your hair and revitalize the shine! For my fine haired friends, glosses are a great way to build volume in your hair without committing to color.

Bang/Neck Trims – A great haircut will grow out so well that a person could go months without a fresh cut. But our hairline always tells a different story.Whether your male or female, the hair around your hairline is a telling tale of how recently you’ve had your haircut. The solution? Stop in to your stylist at the midway point in between your haircut appointments for a ‘bang’ trim (you don’t have to have bangs! this could be your face framing angles) or a neck and side burn trim. These drop ins are wallet friendly (they’re complimentary!), they help your hairsytlist get to know you and your hair better, and best of all, you’ll always have a fresh looking cut!

Brazilian Blowout Treatment – Little known fact…..this treatment does not have to be done over the entire head! It can be targeted to areas of your hair that have the most frizz, tightest curls and/or most stubborn cowlicks. In this way, your curl pattern becomes more consistent throughout your hair, frizz is gone and your hair goes in the direction you want it to now that those cowlicks are tamed!. Essentially, your problem areas go away! A BB Treatment around your hairline can even make a ponytail a breeze – no more frizz to worry about around the temples and behind the ears!

Nigelle Treatment – This is a quick 3-step salon treatment that includes four ampoules to be used at home once a week for 4 weeks, extending the life of the treatment. So for $70, you get 4 weeks worth of treatment care – what a bargain! It’s 3 formulas allow for customization for your haircare needs. The fine hair formula improves the quality of hair without weighing hair down. The normal and coarse formulas lock in moisture to tame and soften unruly, frizzy hair and restore shine.

Alpha Beta Medi Spa Peel by Aida – This 3 step professional peel is different than the 2 step at home peels from Dr Dennis Gross. Aida trained specifically with the Dr Gross team to be able to perform this specialized treatment. The results are immediate. Your skin is luminous, your texture and tone are improved and as long as you’ve applied high SPF sunscreen, you don’t need to avoid the sun! Repeated treatments have the added benefits of stimulating collagen production – improving skin density and firmness and diminishing lines, wrinkles, and the appearance of sun damage.

Dr Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Glow Pads – Ever use a self tanner and get streaks? Weird pigmentation? Yeah, we’ve had that experience too. But not with these pads! They are in the form of a towelette which makes them easy to use, easy to obtain an even distribution and, best of all,  your hands won’t be all gooey and orange after using them! They exfoliate, self-tan and have anti-aging benefits too!  The icing on the cake…..your glow looks completely natural!

Style Edit Root Touch Up – This cleverly packaged product has 2 main functions. 1 is a practical one – it camouflouges your grey hair until you get in to see your colorist. The 2nd is to make hair look fuller and create a mattifying effect on the scalp so that a flash bulb won’t shine on it and make you look bald – you fine haired ladies know what I mean! It lays on the surface of your scalp so that you can’t see the scalp as much – this gives the appearance of denser hair. Now that your scalp has a matte finish, when your picture is taken and a flash bulb is used, the flash won’t bounce off your scalp! This is a popular hollywod trick!

Loreal Artec Next Day Hair – This texturizing spray is a marriage of a dry shampoo and hairspray. It gives the hair some grit, adds density and provides a light hold. You can use it on ‘dirty’ hair to prolong the life of your blow-dry or  you can use it on clean hair to give it a lived in feel.  For Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray lovers, this is cheaper and just as good!

Secret De Nuit – Many are afraid of this overnight treatment by Phyto. A common thought process is that it will stain your pillowcase; or be uncomfortable to sleep in; or cause a breakout on your skin. None of which are true. It absorbs directly into your hair and is not greasy in the least. It’s ingredients are active at night, when the hair’s ability to repair itself peaks.Secret De Nuit replenishes dry or damaged hair. It is amazing to use after getting a full head of highlights to restore the nutrients in your hair.  You do not have to rinse it out.

Salon AKS Baby-Toddler Hair and Body Wash – The best part of this is that it is ALL NATURAL. Coconut derived detergent creates a very gentle lather that enables it to double as a shampoo as well as a body wash and smells so good even moms and dads will want to lather it on! Take it with you anywhere!

AKS Color Care Shampoo – This is unlike other color shampoos you’ve used before. The coconut water and macadamia extract both hydrate the hair – essential after a color service! The rosemary leaf and sea kelp extract help to close the cuticle of the hair and truly seal in color for long lasting color protection! Plus, it’s sodium chloride and sulfate free!

AKS Anti Frizz Shampoo – If you think shampoo does not matter to the final results of your hair, your mistaken. The ingredients in your shampoo are essential to providing the base for the look your hoping to achieve later on in styling. The Anti-Frizz shampoo contains keratin & sunflower extract.  These work to bond hair and keep frizz to a minimum. Add to that the protective and moisturizing qualities of coconut water, cocobetaine and coco seed butter. After shampooing, your already halfway to achieving fabulous curls or a long lasting blowout! Best for coarse or frizzy hair.

 

Stay tuned! We are always trying and discovering new things!

 

To Lighten Your Color or To Not….

When you significantly lighten your hair from its natural state you risk hair breakage and loss of hydration and elasticity. In short, your hair could wind up blond but feel like Brillo. Second, dark hair, when lightened, pulls up a lot of red. So if you do intend to lighten it, be selective in whom you chose to do it for you. You want them to know what they are doing so that it doesn’t wind up looking orange! Third, a dramatic change in color requires a lot of maintenance because your roots will be very obvious so you will need to get your color touched up every 3-4 weeks.

If your serious about wanting lighter hair I would consider a heavy highlighting using the balyage technique.

After a hair lightening quality maintenance of your hair health is mandatory. We love:

Will coloring my hair affect the way my hair grows? Will it make my hair get white faster?

Anything you do to your hair shaft has no effect, adverse or otherwise, to the hair growing out from your scalp. Therefore, coloring your hair will not affect the amount it grows from the scalp. Do be careful about overprocessing your ends as that could cause you to incur damage to them and force you to have to cut them.

Furthermore, your hair only goes white when your root loses its pigmentation. That only happens when the family genes you have inherited tell it to do so.  No other factor will affect the natural hair pigmentation at the root.

I went to my local hair colorist and they totally messed up my color! How do I fix it at home?!

Though we totally get your frustration when you are going to a professional and not getting the results you want, it is usually much worse off when you take it into your own hands. Your color process (as you already know) is not straightforward. Color fillers come in a large variety and help to achieve different results. Which color filler is used is based on the results of the lightening process on your hair. There are many many variables.

In short, our best advice is to ask around and seek a professional that will get you the best results while maintaining the health of your hair. They are out there!

I have long dark dirty blonde hair. I recently went to get partial highlights, and wanted them to look natural and just brighten up my look. When they were finished it looked bleach blonde, not like highlights. Would this be better corrected with lowlights or all over color?

Low lights are probably the better option and finding a colorist who will know how to achieve the right hair color for your skin tone.

I want to dye my extensions the same color as my hair. How do I do that?

Are the extensions real hair? If they’re not or if they’re coated with anything synthetic, the color wont take. If they are real, natural hair, it can be done. You will need to use bleach to lift them to match your hair. I recommend covering them with plastic wrap or foil to keep the heat in, and keep them in a warm or bright place so the color will take. This will take longer to lift than it would take to lift your hair (since its not on a person) so  just keep checking on it and rinse it when it’s at the level you want it. It could take hours, but it can be done.

I’m in my 20’s and have over 40% of my hair is grey! How can I stop it?

Whitening of the hair is based solely on genetics. There is little to be done to delay or reverse the process. To attempt to slow the process, try Phytocyane Densifying Treatment in conjunction with Phytodensium Serum.  If it really bothers you, you can color. Maintenance would have to be done on a regular basis so that you do not have roots showing.
