How To Avoid (and treat!) Static Electricity in Hair
links + small things
I wrote a post with a few suggestions for products to use to help avoid or combat static electricity in hair, but I also wanted to share a few techniques you can use if you need a quick fix!
One. Use a wooden comb. Say goodbye to a traditional plastic comb if you are looking to keep static at bay. This comb comes highly reviewed and looks like a solid option!
Two. Use hydrating products or products with oil. The more moisture the better! And don’t skip using conditioner in the shower, either! Sometimes the thought is that silky, conditioned hair may be more staticky but in fact, dry hair ends up being more problematic than not!
Three. The best quick fix on the go is to apply lotion to your hands, rub it in like you would normally, and then rake your hands through your hair. This isn’t an ideal fix but it will certainly work if the static electricity is out of control!
If static electricity in your hair is an ongoing issue, I’d recommend taking a look at your clothing choices, or even the scarves that you wear! Some knit fabrics are more prone to causing static electricity than others. On a similar note, you can also look into spraying Static Guard onto the shoulders or neck area of a sweater you are wearing, or even covering both sides of a scarf before you wear one of those items. Static Guard smells horrible, but it really does the trick to eliminate static electricity.
