As the weather cools down and the humidity lowers during the fall, that can mean changes for your hair. Your hair is more likely to become full of static during this time and as we transition into fall and winter. So, how do you fight annoying static hair? Here’s how:
- Don’t brush or comb as much and switch to a wooden brush or comb or a natural bristle brush. These help to reduce static when you brush. You can also buy brushes and combs now that help fight static hair. Combs made from rubber or metal will work as well. Just avoid plastic because it just breeds static.
- Avoid brushing your hair against coats, sweaters, and hats. The friction is often what causes static in cooler weather.
- For a quick fix, wipe your hair with a dryer sheet or use an anti-static spray. You can also use a little bit of hand lotion to rub into your hair to smooth flyaways and remove static if you don’t have a dryer sheet on hand. Just don’t use too much lotion or your hair will become greasy.
- Remember, the drier and more damaged your hair is, the more static it is likely to increase in your hair. Make sure to cleanse and condition your hair properly and use a leave-in conditioner when needed. Try our Scalp Stimulating Shampoo and Volumizing Keratin Conditioner to keep your hair smooth, soft and moisturized.
- Sleep with a humidifier to put more humidity into the air and reduce the cool, dry air that can cause static in the first place.
- If you use a hairdryer, switch to an ionic dryer in the fall and winter months. It neutralizes the electric charge that creates static.
- If you need extra help neutralizing electric charge, use a silicone-based conditioner.
- Try using hairspray to keep your hair style in place and reduce static.
- Avoid wearing rubber soled shoes as these can create static.
