My hair is full of static at the moment, it’s driving me crazy. Every time I go to brush my hair it sticks up everywhere. It’s the worst time of year for static hair, especially being inside a lot of the time with the central heating on. This has prompted me to look for a solution. Here are a few fixes I have found that help to get rid of static hair:
Water: Spritz the hair with water to add moisture back in and gently brush to smooth down those flyaway hairs. This is usually only a temporary fix though.
Dryer Sheets: I’ve not tried dryer sheets myself personally but it is said they are effective. The dryer sheets can be rubbed onto hairbrushes before brushing the hair or rubbed down the hair shaft to eliminate the frizzies. Rub one over your pillow before bed.
Ionic Hairdryer: Using an Ionic Hairdryer neutralises the electronic charge that makes hair static and also speeds up drying time.
Hairspray: Spray hairspray directly onto your hairbrush and then brush through the hair to help get rid of static.
Lotion: If you have some lotion to hand (body or hand lotion) rub a small amount in your palms then smooth through the hair. Make sure it’s only a small amount or the hair will look greasy.
Conditioner: Use an extra moisturising conditioner on your hair or a leave-in conditioner, or try an antistatic conditioner.
Humidifier: Using a humidifier will help make the dry air more comfortable by boosting your indoor humidity level. This, in turn, should help your hair.
There are also sheets like dryer sheets but made especially for the hair called Kérastase Carré Lissant sheets. There are 50 sheets per box, they are very expensive though because of being sold for a limited time and are in short supply, so I think I’d stick with the tumble dryer sheets if on a tight budget!
