Treat your scalp to a luxurious experience

Raki Loves Hair (RLH) is a full service studio salon that caters to the hair and scalp care needs of all individuals.

RLH is a health centered facility ran by Trichologist, Rakiah Polk.

HEAL. NURTURE. EDUCATE. That's our motto.

  • HEAL hair shaft and scalp disorders

  • NURTURE hair and scalp back to health and maintain healthy scalp environment

  • EDUCATE clients about their own hair and scalp and what to do at home to keep their hair and scalp thriving 

Obtaining optimum health for your hair AND scalp is our #1 priority.  We do this by encouraging honest communication, regular salon visits, and developing customized treatments.  Each client is unique and there is a customized regiment and routine established for each.

We believe that the relationship between the client and the professional is a partnership built upon: communication, honesty and mutual respect.

To get the best out of your RLH experience we ask that you relax, be open and honest about your hair history, wants and needs, and allow us to learn more about your hair and scalp together!


Are you experiencing with breakage, heat damage, thinning or hair loss, excessively flaky, oily, or dry scalp and can't seem to find a long lasting solution? Raki can build a custom regimen that will help to reverse the signs of most hair and scalp conditions with regular maintenance.  She incorporates her knowledge of hair, scalp, massage, nutrition, self care, and essential oils to create a unique curation of relaxing services that heal and nurture your hair and scalp.
The results are visible: healthier looking hair and scalp, increased hair growth, thicker strands, enhanced curl definition, and length retention.

Meet Raki, CEO

Cosmetologist and Trichologist


My name is Rakiah, Raki (Ra-key) for short.

I am a Hair and Scalp Therapist. I have been operating in this industry for 20+ years now.

As a cosmetologist, my main objectives are assisting my clients in the process of looking beautiful, and feeling good about themselves.

As a certified trichologist, my #1 priority is keeping the hair on your head and maintaining a healthy scalp environment. While studying trichology, I learned in depth information about the connection between the hair and body, and how the hair is affected by nutrition, mental health, and illness.

Beauty services are luxury services and they should feel luxurious.  My clients feel it in the environment, in my voice, and most certainly in my hands.

My motto is "HEAL. NURTURE. EDUCATE.", and this is exactly what I do.





Raki is a cosmetology graduate of the esteemed Pivot Point International Academy and a certified trichologist of The National Trichology Training Institute. 

After graduating cosmetology school, Raki studied under a team of legendary master hair stylists in Down Town Chicago for 4 years. She continues to develop and refine her skill set by enhancing her knowledge with classes and developing professional relationships.


Today, Raki is your leading HAIR + SCALP THERAPIST.  She specializes in natural hair care: curating customized and personalized treatments, regimens, and experiences.

“Put your head in my hands.” - Raki
