Q.How can I make my hair grow faster, but still keep it healthy? Haley S.
Haley, Hello! I am going to share a few steps that you can take to grow your hair faster while keeping it healthy and still be able to stand the time it takes to grow.
#1: Be very nice to your hair.
Your hair falls out naturally on its own, but you may be pulling it out faster with the things you do. The gentler you are with your hair, the less it will fall out and the faster it will grow.
#2: Minimize how much you style your hair.
Any kind of styling that involves pulling your hair at the root (blow drying straight, straight iron, curling iron, rollers) will contribute to slow growth. Heat styling can also encourage hair to break. If you really need to dry your hair fast, use a blow dryer for 5 minutes only and make sure to use a heat protectant such as Paul Mitchell Heat Seal to protect from the heat.
#3: Take a daily multivitamin.
Keep in mind that everything that you consume goes through your body and can be detected in your hair. It can take several months to notice the results, so don't get discouraged.
Stress is a common cause of reversible hair growth/ loss. When you experience physical or emotional turmoil, it can take anywhere from 3 weeks to 4 months for the results to show up in your hair.
#5: Address any pressing health issues.
Hair is a strong indicator of health. Many nutritional deficiencies can cause hair growth to slow, and can cause hair to thin. If your hair has gotten seriously thinner or stops growing for more than a few months, you should discuss it with your doctor.
#6: Try not to wash your hair every day.
The natural oils protect and condition your hair better than anything. Use a product by Bed Head called Rockaholic Dry Shampoo; it will eliminate the oily feeling.
#7 Use Deep Conditioning Treatments
Try MOROCCANOIL Hair Mask treatment and rinse out with icy water to seal down your cuticle and add shine. The longer you let it sit, the more oils will seep into your hair. By using professional treatments on your hair and leaving it on over night is a good way to mend split ends.
Another step is to trim the ends of your hair every month. Not too much but, just enough to snip off some split ends.
Thank you for your inquiry and I would love to hear back from you!

Q.I have horrible fly-aways and I don't know what to do about them. Are there any good products I can use to tame them or is there any way to get rid of them? Lindsey W.
Lindsey, Hi! Fly-aways can be caused by a few factors... If you flat iron your hair; the fly-aways could be caused by breakage due to high direct heat being used on your hair. You must be using something to protect you hair from that heat. Think of it as sticking your hand in a hot oven without a glove on, your hand would burn and so does your hair. I would recommend using Vavoom Iron In Control Guard. They have one for fine or thick hair. Choose the appropriate one for your hair type. This product also hair a shine factor and will help the fly-aways while you hair heals. Another reason could be static and I love to recommend using Bed Head Headrush and Bed Head After Party. These products smell great and will tame the frizzy fly a ways. Take a small amount of the After Party and apply it to your hair before drying. After drying use the spray Headrush to add shine and a little weight to control your fly-aways. Be careful and make sure not to use too much product as it is very concentrated and should last you at least 3-4 months. – Your Web Stylist, Sarah W.
Q.I just had a baby and my hair is coming out in gobs from the change in hormones. What can I use to stop it from all falling out? Katie N.
Katie, don't be too hard on the hormones. It is very natural to have hair loss after pregnancy. Approximately 90% of your hair is growing at any one time, while the other 10% enter a resting phase. Every two to three months the resting hair falls out and allows new hair to grow in its place. Telogen effluvium is the excessive shedding of hair that occurs one to five months following pregnancy. This is not uncommon, affecting somewhere between 40 to 50% of women; but like most changes during pregnancy, it is temporary. Have faith you are very normal. Hair loss that is connected to pregnancy usually occurs after delivery. During pregnancy, an increased number of hairs go into the resting phase, which is part of the normal hair loss cycle. This condition is not serious enough to cause bald spots or permanent hair loss, and should begin to diminish within 3-4 months after delivery. If you feel that you are experiencing unusual hair loss while you are pregnant, this may be due to a vitamin or mineral deficiency.
Here are a few suggestions that may help with the frustration of shedding your hair:

Q.I need life and volume in my thin grey hair! Jane B.
Jane, I would suggest using Matrix Essentials SoSilver Shampoo to add luster and shine to your grey hair. This product is specifically made for grey and thinning hair. Amplify (also by Matrix) Conditioner is amazing to open your hair cuticle and create texture and volume. Before blow drying in the morning apply Sexy Hair Concepts Blow in Volume gel while hair is still wet. The combination of these three products will give you fantastic volume and allow for easier styling. Happy Hair Days! – Your web stylist, Sarah W.
Q.I need shine in my hair… can I get something that would add shine that I don't have to spray on every time I go somewhere? Missie B.
Hello Missie, Yes you can! We have an amazing service called High Shine Gloss. This service will put a clear shine throughout your hair allowing you to achieve the healthy shiny look that you desire. We have this service at all of our locations. You can call the location closest to you to make an appointment. – Your Web Stylist, Sarah W.
Q.If I get Eyelash Tinting, can I still use mascara? Jemeca D.
YES -- Your eyelashes will look even fuller with the tinting! Your lashes, even if you have darker hair, tend to be a bit lighter on the ends. The tinting is going to make them look fantastic without mascara and fantabulous with it, too. During the summer if you are outdoors often your mascara will not run and when you just don’t feel like putting on makeup, you will appear to have spruced a little. Enjoy!
– Sarah W.
Q.My hair gets greasy at the crown (even right out of the shower). What can I do to stop it from being so greasy? Amy S.
Hello! The “grease” can be caused by a variety of things such as environment and product. Oftentimes, the body produces oils make up for the natural oils that we need on our scalp. It could be your shampoo or conditioner stripping away the oils that are needed. After showering your body thinks that it needs to overproduce essential oils to make up for what you have just stripped away. My suggestion would be to start using Biolage Cooling Mint Shampoo and Conditioner. It is specifically formulated for oily scalp conditions and does not have harsh ingredients that strip away essential oils. I hope this has helped and thank you for your inquiry! Happy Hair Days ;) – Sarah Weitzman
Q.My hair is pretty fried and it's very thick. I have to straighten my hair almost everyday just to keep the frizz away... Heat spray doesn't work. What should I do?
I completely understand your frustration with frizz. It is important that you are using professional hydrating Shampoo and Conditioners, as heat protector can only get you so far when smoothing out your hair. You need moisture and protein based product that is going to repair as well as protect your hair. I would suggest trying the Coppola Keratin Complex Shampoo and Conditioner. It will add the needed protein to rebuild your hair and also have a revolutionary ingredient called Keratin that smoothes down the hair while moisture and blocking out the humidity that can cause frizz. You must continue to use your heat protectant while flat ironing however; adding a moisture and protein packed shampoo and conditioner will help tremendously with your frizz frustration! – Sarah W.
Q.What's good for dry hair and scalp? Ericka O.
Ericka, when the weather changes we all go through dry hair and scalp season! My recommendation is to use Paul Mitchell Tea Tree Hair and scalp treatment twice a week and then on a daily basis use Redken Scalp Treatment Shampoo and Conditioner. This will solve your problem and you will have results in as little as two days. – Your Web Stylist, Sarah W.
Q.Can you guys strip colored hair to the natural color it was before it was dyed?
Libby, the biggest misconception when you color your hair is that your natural color will be somewhere hidden beneath your new color. Unfortunately, you have changed the color and chemical composition of your hair strand. We can remove the color that you have placed on your hair and put another color that matches your natural however it will never be the exact color until it grows at the root. This is considered a color correction and could take some time to achieve the results you are looking for, please call 636-391-1717 and we can direct you to the closest location to you. Happy hair days! Thank you for writing in. – Your Web Stylist, Sarah W.
Q.How does stripping the old hair color affect one's hair? I have faded brown color in parts of my hair and a lot of grey under the top layer of hair. I was using root touch up color for a long time. I now want to let my hair be the natural salt and pepper grey that it is. Eileen L.
Eileen, Hello! One of the biggest misconceptions of hair color is that somehow your natural color is still lingering behind the color you have placed on top. The reality is that you have chemically altered your hair color by changing the actual chemistry, so, your natural color is no longer hiding under the color you have used. The color that is on your hair at the moment is permanent. By "stripping" the color you are bleaching the darker color to a lighter color in order to place the desired color on your hair. My suggestion for a smooth transition into your natural color would be a service that we offer called Color Camo. This service will allow you to go natural without altering the color as it grows. This service fades out naturally and will benefit the health of your hair as well! All of our locations offer the service and will be happy to make you an appointment. I have confidence that you will have the best care and feel fabulous during your change back to natural color. Thank you for writing in and if you have any more questions please email me back. Thanks for asking. – Your Web Stylist, Sarah W.
Q.How long does salon color last, versus store-bought? Heather D.
Heather, all salon products go through rigorous testing to maintain the hair as healthy as possible during chemical treatments. The level of ingredients and scientific expertise is unbelievable regarding products sold or used in the salon. Store bought color has lower level ingredients and harsh detergents that will strip the hair and leave it temporarily colored. It is very difficult to go to a salon after using "box color" because the stylist is unable to exactly determine how the color will turn out. Salon color will absolutely last longer because of the quality of ingredient. Thanks for asking! – Your Web Stylist, Sarah W.
Q.How long does salon color usually last before it starts to fade? Heather D.
Heather, Hi! Well, I wish that it would never fade into those mouse-y colors however this is just not true of any color in the salon or otherwise. The fact of the color matter is that you MUST take care of your color by using professional products to maintain color and integrity of the hair. The maintenance of your color ifs very important and includes using the correct products.
Blondes: Most blondes want that very cool color that does not turn into a yellow or orange mess. This happens because of environmental factors or minerals in the water. I suggest using the Paul Mitchell Platinum Blonde shampoo twice a week and a conditioner adding moisture/strength such as Paul Mitchell Strengthening Conditioner daily. The Platinum Blonde Shampoo has a purple tint to the color which acts as a prolonged toner for the color until your next appointment.
Brunettes/Red Heads: Love, love richness to their color. This will fade over time. It is very important to maintain the color with professional products which contain high quality ingredients! One of my favorites is MOROCCANOIL Shampoo and Conditioner. It is sulfate free, which will prolong the rich color because it does not contain harsh color stripping detergents. A high shine color gloss is also my recommendation to lock in your color and add shine. The High Shine Gloss treatment is like the top coat on your nail polish! It will prolong the color and is a great in between color service.
So you see it is very hard to answer how long the color will stay in an individual’s hair because of how you take care of your hair when you leave the salon. I hope these suggestions have helped answer your question.

Q.I have chocolate-colored hair, and I am interested in getting pink highlights. Is that possible? And if so, how much will it cost? Maya S.
I love that you describe your hair as "chocolate" color; it is one of my favorite words to describe hair color! Adding pink highlights would be a fantastic pop to your rich color. We offer Pravana Vivids for the pop of pink you are looking for. The pink shades come in your choice of magenta, orchid and light pink. Most of our locations offer the Vivid colors and they cost $15 per every foil. With bright colors you need to keep in mind that it will fade quickly without proper maintenance. So, make sure you are taking care of the color with a sulfate-free shampoo and get your hair wet before swimming this will help the chlorine from stripping the color. Be sure to call your salon ahead to make sure they have the Pink Vivid color in stock! – Sarah W.
Q.I have colored, shoulder length, medium brown hair. I want to dye my hair to a medium blonde color. Is that possible to do without it turning orange? Katie S.
Katie, this is absolutely possible! I am guessing that you have tried this on your own before and it turned orange in the past? Leave it to the professionals – we are very knowledgeable in this exact situation! I would suggest adding highlights to your hair. We will make those highlights the medium blonde color you want to achieve. Remember to use a color care shampoo and conditioner such as Biolage Color Care to make sure your color lasts... this is your warranty. Thank you for your inquiry! – Your Web Stylist, Sarah W.
Q.I over-processed my hair and now its silver! I wanted it blonde but at this point i just want the silver gone. What can i do without turning it real dark? What color will work? Monica D.
It sounds as though you have depleted the pigment in your hair. We call this a color correction, and we would need to see the condition and actual color in order to properly prescribe a color formulation. Please come to one of our locations that is closest to you and we will be able to perform a consultation to help you eliminate the silver without going too dark! I am sorry this happened and am excited to help you fix the problem, please me know where you choose to go and I will follow up with the stylist. – Your web stylist, Sarah W.
Q.I used sun-in over the summer and I am thinking of going either a burgundy red or auburn. Will dying/highlighting my hair do more damage to it now that I have used sun-in? Gail S.
Gail, Oh the joys of Sun-In. The chemicals in Sun-In lighten your hair naturally with a medium accelerant that lightens with minimal damage. We would consider coloring or highlighting your hair a color correction because the Sun-In is not a professional product and we cannot ensure how the color is going to take or react with the chemicals that are in your hair from the Sun-In. You should pick up some Redken Extreme Anti-Snap to mend your ends and put protein into your hair. Use daily Biolage Hydrating Shampoo and Conditioner to add moisture. Do this for one week and then make an appointment for us to give you a full consultation and the desired hair color. Unfortunately, anytime you color your hair the chemicals will damage it, using the correct treatments to rebuild and make it healthy again is the key! Good luck and I hope this helps. Thank you for your inquiry. – Your Web Stylist, Sarah W.
Q.I want to get the bottom layer of my hair (the layer that hangs down when the hair is pulled halfway up) dyed a "non-conventional" hair color, like blue or purple. How would I go about doing that? Shan M.
Shan, we offer the Pravana Vivid Color collection at our Hair Companies. The colors include: bright pink, pale pink, blue, purple, silver, yellow, orange, and green. Please call and make an appointment with one of our Hair Companies to ensure that they will have the specific color that you would like. Any of our stylists will be happy to assist you! The Vivid Colors are really popular and exciting at the moment. Have fun and enjoy your experience. FYI: I would suggest getting a dark pillow case the first few days after you color, it will fade a bit due to the intensity of the color. Color Care shampoo and conditioner is highly recommended to lock in your new color. – Your Web Stylist, Sarah W.
Q.Can you get a perm and color at the same time? Or, how far apart do the two have to be? And, which one first? Heather D.
It is better to perm and then wait two weeks to perform a color service on your hair. Your hair needs time to repair itself and settle the perm chemical into the hair shaft. To ensure the integrity of your hair it would be beneficial to receive a conditioning treatment before coloring, your hair will be more vibrant and the color will last longer because your hair has the strength to hold the color molecules. I would never recommend coloring and perming in the same sitting. I hope this has helped. Please give us a call to set up a location and appointment! We look forward to hearing from you. – Your Web Stylist, Sarah W.
Q.Do you relax African American hair? Morgan S.
Morgan, Yes, We do relax African American Hair! Please call 636-391-1717 for more information and a location closest to you. We also offer a great new service called Keratin Smoothing System. This system reduces the frizz in your hair while straightening without the damaging permanent results! We offer this service at select locations. Thank you for your inquiry. – Your Web Stylist, Sarah W.
Q.I have extremely straight boring hair. I wish it would do more. I attempt to curl it with a curling iron or hot rollers and it won't stay. Any advice? I thought about a perm but that is a little drastic. I have also heard of something called a body wave. Do you do that? Lauren C.
Lauren, Yes, we do have texturizing treatments (body wave) services. Essentially, it is a perm. However, it is a new technique of wrapping the rollers around you hair that will provide lift and wave; rather than having a full blown curly perm. If your hair is as straight as you say and you do not want to -go with the "Body Wave" I would suggest using Redken Texturizing Heat Spray When curling your hair with an iron. This will help to hold your curl for longer. The Sleek Look Hairspray is ant-humidity and will hold your curl while you are outside. I hope this helps! If you have any questions or would like us to direct you to our closest location. Please call 636-391-1717. – Your Web Stylist, Sarah W.
Q.I heard that LookAfter now has a hair straightening procedure. Is it at all locations? What is it called? How long does it take? How much is it? Amber B.
Amber, HI! Yes, we are very excited to be able to bring this amazing smoothing system to our Hair Companies and clients. It is called Keratin Smoothing System by Coppola. We offer it at select locations. This treatment will eliminate 95% of your frizz while maintaining curl with a bit of relaxation. It will fade over a 4-6 month period allowing you to decide if you would like to schedule another appointment for the treatment. Please note that this service is only for select clients, so consult with your stylist if this is right for you. Thank you and if I can assist you further please contact us at 636-391-1717. Have a great day! – Your Web Stylist, Sarah W.
Q.I want to cut my long hair very soon to donate to Locks of Love, and was curious if LookAfter happens to offer any discounts? Bonnie P.
Bonnie, Locks of Love is an amazing organization that we support completely! Any of our locations will measure and give you a full style to suit your look and new found lightness for this wonderful cause. We offer our Locks of Love clients a FREE cut and style with your donation: Just tell the stylist when you sign in that you are there for a Locks of Love donation. Thank you for your inquiry and enjoy feeling the wind through your hair! – Your Web Stylist, Sarah W.
Q.Do you offer extensions? Ogechikamma A.
Hello! Unfortunately, we currently do not offer extensions at our locations. However, we are able to provide you with a variety of other services and would love to service other needs that you may want (including waxing, color and styles). Check out our online menu at http://www.lookafterhairco.com/our-services/. Thanks! – Sarah W.
Q.My hair is extremely long & very straight. What can I use to give it a little shape, without paying an arm & a leg?
Have you considered layers? I know that with very long hair layers can be intimidating however some long layers with face framing will alleviate the weight of your length and help to give you some volume. If you do not want to consider layers, which I can understand being that they can be a little more maintenance I would suggest that you invest in a root lifting product. The product Guts by Redken is an excellent source of volume when used correctly! You will apply the product at your roots ONLY while your hair is wet. The product comes out in a straight shot spray that must be sprayed at your roots, if you spray throughout the hair the product weighs down. With any volumizing styling aid you will want to apply directly at the root and avoid pulling it all the way through your hair. I hope this has helped and thank you for your inquiry! – Sarah W.
Q.I have a heart-shaped face and long blonde hair. I am thinking about getting slightly choppy layers. Would this be the best style? Emma S.
Emma, with such a humid climate, make sure you invest in some smoothing Shampoo and Conditioner for the frizzies. Try Biolage Smoothing or Bed Head Some Like it Hot! Either of these will aid in your new look designed for the heart-shaped face! Here are some suggestions for the correct hairstyle.
I would recommend chin-length or longer styles work well with a heart-shaped face. Other styles to try: side-parted hair styles or swept-forward layers around the upper face, with gently wispy bangs. A chin length bob is great on your face shape! This creates a balanced look by giving fullness where you need it. You can wear shorter styles; however, if you are a dramatic heart shape you need to leave weight in the back nape area. This will achieve more balance between your dramatic cheekbones and more narrow chin.
It would benefit your style to avoid short, full styles that emphasize the upper face. Stay away from styles with too much height at the crown. Severe, slicked back looks are too harsh for this shape too. If you are a dramatic heart shape, the short, full styles with tapered necklines, which emphasize the upper face, will make you look top heavy. Too much height at the crown will give the appearance of a longer and narrower chin. Just remember if you have a dramatic heart shape face, you have great cheekbones to emphasize! Don't miss the boat by getting a cut which is too top heavy.
Check out these celebs that have the heart-shaped face as well: Michelle Pfeiffer, Ashley Judd, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Claudia Schiffer, Emmanuaell Beart, Juliette Binoche, Lisa Kudrow, Lucy Lawless, Naomi Campbell.
I hope this has helped and have fun creating the best fit for your home routine and styling. – Your Web Stylist, Sarah W.
Q.I have I guess fine fly-away hair with the top of my scalp balding. I typically ask to keep it as short as they can, cut with scissor and comb. Looking for a new look that is easy to maintain. Can you help? Ron K.
Ron, I would absolutely recommend that you consider using our NEW Bosley hair care products. It is a shampoo, conditioner and foam that are proven to regrow and strengthen the hair. It sounds as though you would need the Blue care kit and most of our locations are carrying the product. Please call 636-391-1717 to inquire about a location that is close to you carrying the product. For your cut, try a shorter look blended to the top. For example, go with a number 4 blended with shears on top to maintain an easier style. Keep in mind that this will be short cut above the ears and may take some getting used to. Both of these suggestions combined will give you a new look that is easy to maintain. – Your Web Stylist, Sarah W.
Q.I have long, medium thick hair. I want to keep it long, but find a style that complements my oval shaped face, and doesn't look weird with my glasses. Any ideas? Ally M.
Q.My hair is curly and extremely frizzy. I have a thin square face. Any suggestions on how to cut it? I am looking for a change! Erica B.
Erica, Hi! Here are a few suggestions about your cut to compliment your square face shape. I would recommend short-to-medium length hair, especially with wave or roundness around the face. Wispy bangs will soften the angular shape. Off-center parts with height at the crown look great on square faces. You want to soften the square look of your face with layers and wispy looks around the face. Height at the crown will elongate your symmetrical shape. Since your hair is curly take advantage as it adds a nice balance to the straight features of your face shape.
As, I have very curly hair also, here are the products that I am currently using to achieve some control: Keratin Complex Color Care Shampoo and Conditioner, Sexy Hair Concepts Soy Tri-Wheat Leave-in Treatment (while hair is wet after shampooing), Sexy Hair Concepts Curling mousse (scrunch you hair upside down and blow dry while upside down with a diffuser) and last but not least finish off with Bed Head Masterpiece Hairspray to add shine and a bit of hold. Have fun and thank you for writing in, we LOVE to hear from you and tell us about your experience. Have a great hair day!
– Your Web Stylist, Sarah W.
Q.My hair is long, straight and fine, but I have a lot of it. I want a haircut that is easy to manage (nothing past blow-drying) but makes it look like I have thicker hair. I was thinking a collar-bone length bob. What do you suggest? Chelsey G.
Chelsey, If you want to keep your styling time to a minimum (simple blow dry) you should go for a style that is about 1 inch below your shoulders and start the layers at 4 inches from the scalp. This will create some volume for you and also keep your fine hair from becoming too limp and long. My suggestion would be to keep it longer because of the time you want to style your hair. A shorter style would require some more time for styling and management in the morning. Thank you for your inquiry. – Your Web Stylist, Sarah W.
Q.I have extremely curly hair and have tried almost every product. How do I get rid of the frizziness? Tania S.
Tania, Love your curly hair, we always want what we don't have! I have very coarse curly hair also. The key to defrizzing is in your product usage. We offer a High Shine Gloss treatment at all of our locations. This treatment will smooth down your cuticle and fight the frizz. Biolage Conditioning Balm and Hydrating Shampoo for daily use will benefit you because curly hair becomes dry very quickly. After shampooing when you get out of the shower, apply a scrunching spray such as Sexy Hair Concept detangling solution, Scrunchy with Paul Mitchell Sculpting Foam. These products both contain a high amount of conditioning agents that will weigh down the hair and fight frizz also. Use a diffuser to blow dry and then finish your style with Masterpiece Hairspray by Bed Head. The spray contains shine with minimal hold to perfect your curls.
– Your Web Stylist, Sarah W.
Q.I want my hair to have volume, but not be so frizzy. What should I do?
To achieve volume with low frizz I am going to suggest the Redken Nature’s Rescue Line of products. These products do not contain any harsh ingredients such as sulfates, parabens and silicone which rough up your cuticle and cause frizz. The light weight conditioner will smooth down your locks as well as contain a low PH so, if you have hair color, your color will last much longer while maintaining volume! With the winter our hair becomes very distressed and dry, it would benefit your locks to receive a Deep Conditioning Treatment at one of our locations. You will immediately feel refreshed about the health and feel of your hair. A Deep Conditioning Treatment is most beneficial at the salon setting because we are able to put a cap on your hair and then under a dryer for a period of time. This will allow your cuticle to absorb the maximum amount of moisture and repair damage. Thus, allowing the hair to be healthy with volume and bounce!
– Sarah W.
Q.What is your take on organic shampoos and conditioners? Lathan J.
The organic issue tends to be a very fine line between truly organic and "organic" labels. Organic shampoos should be sulfate and surfactant free, thus being better for your hair color and more gentle on the hair shaft in general. The chemicals used in regular shampoos can cause some reaction if the person has a skin condition or allergy. The "organic" lines are safer for the environment because the harmful chemicals have been eliminated. Also, those chemicals can seep into the skin cavities and in some cases (not a fact) have been thought to cause long term problems. Things you have to consider when using organic products; the lather is virtually eliminated due to surfactant deletion (suds really are not needed, it's a psychological thing. The suds strip the hair, sometimes leaving it dry and unmanageable), products are very concentrated (use sparingly) and choice is an option. I have found that the Sexy Hair Organics line is fantastic for shampoo, conditioners and styling aids. Take a small amount of shampoo, work it in your hands and start at the ends of your hair, shampooing throughout (remember you are not going to have a lot of suds action), when conditioning do the same with the exception of placing the conditioner on your ends throughout your hair (conditioner is not needed throughout) rinse with cool water to add shine and smoothness. – Your Web Stylist, Sarah W.
