My hair is limp and thin. When I put it in a ponytail it stay’s in the same shape after I take the hair tie off. It’s dull. I have little flyaways. What can i do?

It sounds like your hair is lacking moisture and elasticity. Good nutrition and scalp circulation are vital to healthy hair as is using professional grade products that are pH balanced for your hair. Yes, they are more expensive but they are also more concentrated, thereby lasting you longer. Invest in products that will bring hydration and elasticity back to your hair. Get your hair trimmed regularly (every 6 weeks) in order to remove your split ends. As long as your ends are split, you will be unable to grow any length because they will always break off. Products we love to help you along: http://shopaks.com/products/aks-volumizing-shampoo for a lightweight, hydrating and volumizing hair cleanse. To increase hair vitality and strength, use this amazing hair and nail vitamin: http://shopaks.com/products/phytophanere-for-hair-nails. The vitamins take 3 months to show their effects but the effects are long lasting. Compound the effects by treating your scalp with Phytocyane Densifying Treatment.

Here at Salon AKS we have a treatments by Loreal and Milbon. These treatments work wonders to help restore both moisture and elasticity to the hair and are used primarily by those who do not want to cut a significant amount of their hair off but need it to be healthy again.  These in-salon treatments are professionally formulated for a customized, individually prescriptive experience. Please call 212-888-0707 for the next available appointment.

My colorist at home….

AKS gets many requests to advise colorists outside of NYC on how to achieve a particular color.  It is difficult to give detailed advice on hair color options as there are many variables that get factored in to achieve great results.  It’s important to know that different areas of the hair shaft have different levels of porosity. Based on that and the condition of your hair, that is what determines what a colorist can or cannot achieve on your hair. Bring photos of your desired end result and speak with your colorist about the best method to achieve it. Find a celebrity whose style you like that has similar coloring to you and emulate their look.

Salon AKS is located at 689 5th Ave, NY, NY. Drop in at anytime for a complimentary consultation and professional advice.

How do I stop my hair from breaking?!

First, you must determine the cause of the breakage. Are your ponytails too tight? Is your hair over processed? To what extent is your hair damaged? And what will change about your day to day routine to keep your hair from getting damaged again once its been repaired or cut? Generally speaking, once hair is truly broken, there is no good way to repair it and so it is best to cut it into a healthy state and move forward from there.

Good nutrition and scalp circulation are vital to healthy hair as is using professional grade products that are pH balanced for your hair. Yes, they are more expensive but they are also more concentrated, thereby lasting you longer. Invest in products that will bring hydration and elasticity back to your hair. Get your hair trimmed regularly every 6 weeks- in order to remove your split ends. As long as your ends are split, you will be unable to grow any length because they will always break off.

I saw this haircut ____…… how do I ask for it?

First, is the haircut your requesting right for you? Does the person in the photo have similar face shape and hair texture as you? Find a celebrity whose style you like that has similar face shape to yours and emulate their look.

The process to achieving a great hairstyle starts with a properly proportioned haircut. In order for hair strands to fall into place perfectly, they must be cut perfectly. Hair should be cut according to the way it grows, that way strands can interlock with each other and allow for a graceful growing out of the cut.  This cutting method also allows for ease of style. If hair is cut the way it grows, it does not HAVE to be blow-dried to look good.  Next, hair must be cut in a proportion most flattering to your face shape. You want angles and layers that highlight your best features and diminish your least favorite.

For a great cut and personalized product recommendations come see a professional at Salon AKS.

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!

Come into Salon AKS at anytime for a complimentary consultation with a hair color expert.

Best,

Salon AKS
