Ailments of the hair and scalp are common and their symptoms can be unpleasant for those who suffer from them: itching, redness, dandruff, bad odour from oily scalp, and in certain cases, hair thinning and hair loss.
Many people have scalp problems they don’t even know about. That’s why we do a thorough examination and analysis that leads us to the right answer for you.
It is possible to stabilize and/or delay hair thinning and manage scalp ailments. Our “Head First” Hair Loss Prevention & Scalp Health Program is based on the science of Trichology (the science of scalp ailments) and on our 3-step personalized treatment plan can help you with your specific scalp condition.
Using a state-of-the-art technology, we will perform a complete hair and scalp assessment and an analysis of your scalp using a sophisticated microcamera and a unique software, in order to identify the cause of your ailment or hair loss.

The One Question We Can’t Answer About Going Blonde by Alberto And Co Hair Care 604-591-9121
A lady called us and said, “I’ve got brown hair. How long will it take me to have an Elizabeth Hasselbeck type of blonde?”
That’s kind of like asking, “How many angels can sit on the head of a pin?”
Naturally, we couldn’t answer it. Why? We have to see her hair!
You see, all hair has a base color . Without examining her base color, it’s impossible to determine what steps we need to take to get that type of blonde, and how long it would take her to achieve the look she wanted.
We also need to look at her skin tone to see if the color she wants flatters her face.
Hair color is a science, and each person is different. That’s why a consult is the foundation of beautiful color.
One more thing. DNA plays a huge part in coloring your hair. We can give the lady who called us Elizabeth Hasselbeck-like color, but it won’t be the EXACT color because each person’s DNA expression is unique.
And that’s a good thing! Find a picture of a hairstyle you love. Bring it with you and let it be your guide. You are unique. So is your hair. Enjoy it!
You want a change but the actual thought of a color overhaul is terrifying. We get it. So consider these three little steps to soothe your anxiety and still make a change.
You’re in good hands. Your beauty is our business! Call us at Alberto & Co Hare Care 604-591-9121 to make your consultation appouintment with our stylists.

Maybe your hair has seen a bit too much wear and tear. Or, maybe the frizziness of naturally curly hair has you seriously considering a buzz cut.
Whatever the reason, we beg you to re-consider before taking such drastic action!
There is a highly effective and safe solution for over processed, chemically damaged hair, and totally frustrated naturally curly hair.
The gentle formulation of Goldwell KeraSilk hair straightening system allows us to work with any hair type, including salon-colored hair.
Goldwell KeraSilk smoothes curly or frizzy hair, leaving you with the hair you’ve always wanted, a brilliant shine, manageability, and tons of possibilities for hairstyles for upto 5 months!
Unlike other hair straightening and repair systems, Goldwell KeraSilk does not have an intensive pre-treatment. There are no harsh chemicals and no formaldehyde, but there are the rich, raw materials of keratin,with the most advanced keratin technology available today.
And the results are instant. You will not have to wait 72 hours to wash and style your hair, either. You can do it immediately after the treatment, if you choose.
To maintain your salon results, we recommend the Goldwell KeraSilk aftercare products. What’s so special about these products?
Unlike regular shampoo and conditioner, they do not strip your hair of keratin, which would reverse the salon treatment results. Instead, with Goldwell KeraSilk products, you get plenty of nourishment, which replenishes the treatment. (Wait until you use the deep conditioning daily mask! It’s incredible.)
The smoothing shine serum protects against thermal appliances, softens, and gives your hair shine from roots to ends.
See why we love Goldwell KeraSilk hair straightening system so much? It puts you and the health of your hair first.

“Will Coloring My Hair Damage It?” By Alberto & CO Hair Care Call Us 604-591-9121
This is a question we hear from time to time from our clients. They want a change, but they’re concerned that coloring their hair will cause damage. So, let’s set the record straight.
Color is individually formulated. From your choice of color to added highlights or lowlights, we create a look that’s totally yours. But before we snip or paint a single strand, we evaluate the condition of your hair.
If it’s already damaged, your first priority—and ours—is to get your hair healthy again! That means regular trims with deep conditioning treatments both at home and in the salon—no coloring!
Coloring damaged hair is a prescription for disaster and we won’t do it.
Salon color is good for your hair.
Unlike nasty box color, we open the hair cuticle so that the color penetrates deeply. (Box color simply coats the hair.) Then, as part of the coloring process, we add deep conditioning agents to close up the cuticles and seal in your color.
Not only do you get healthier hair, you have full coverage color that’s beautiful and long lasting—even with resistant gray!
The point is you’ve got plenty of color choices to create beautiful, multi-dimensional healthy hair that’s just as unique as you are!
Are you loosing hair for some unexplained reason? It could be your thyroid gland.
This small gland, shaped like a butterfly, is located on both sides of your wind pipe. It could be the culprit in your hair loss. It produces hormones that regulates many of your bodies other hormones and functions and especially your metabolism. This regulator of both body and mind sometimes goes haywire, particularly in women. And can happen at any age.
When these hormones become too high or too low, you can experience many different symptoms. Some symptoms may include, hair loss, fatigue, unexplained weight gain no matter how much you work out or diet or even weight loss no matter how much you eat and even feeling too cold or too hot.
Both hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism can cause your hair to fall out.
Getting the right diagnosis and treatment is critical to feel your best and avoid any serious health problems. If you think you may have symptoms of thyroid problems, see your doctor and ask to be tested.
There’s no need to stay in hiding and we won’t say we told you so, although we will do a bit of hand wringing! We’ve seen it many times before. Blotchy color or color left on too long and it dried out your hair, or worse, hair that breaks off! It’s not pretty and we do our best to correct the damage. But you must understand one thing. When you come in for help with a bad color application, it may take more than one session with us to correct the problem. We simply don’t have a magic wand. And damage is, well, damage. So be gentle with yourself and with us! Coloring your hair requires knowledge and techniques that aren’t available to the general public. That’s why most cosmetology schools require at least 1,000 hours of book work and hands on application to successfully complete school. We absolutely don’t want you to feel bad about trying to color your own hair. And yes, there are some benefits to it, like doing it on your schedule and not ours. And of course, the cost. Just know what you’re really buying! Some hair dyes contain chemicals that aren’t approved for human use, yet still find a way onto the store shelf and into your hair .So is it really just “a box of color?”
