Cold weather brings on static, which isn’t a great look for your hair. There is nothing like having that fresh wrap, and then you take your hat off and you look like you stuck your finger in an outlet. Try any of these 5 methods to zap away the static.
1: Bring a dryer sheet
What if I told you a dryer sheet works just as good on your hair as it does on your laundry! And they couple as a hair freshener. Keep one tucked away in your bag, and grab it when necessary and smooth your hair down.
Hairspray works magic on static. Try spraying a brush or comb with hairspray and lightly run the comb over the hair. If you don’t have a comb just spray it on your hand. A little pat down from your palm will do the trick!
Keep hand lotion in your purse? Try moisturizing up your hands then smoothing them over your static crazed hair. Try working the lotion into your hands first before touching your hair, unless you are going for the greasy look.
4: 100% wool hat
It wouldn’t surprise me if the hat the you wear to weather the winter cold is made of acrylic or polyester. If you made a simple switch to 100% wool outerwear you might find that the amount of static you are exposed to is decreased significantly.
5: Lukewarm water rinse + air dry
Try rinsing your hair with lukewarm water and air drying versus using a blow drying. The idea here is to cut down on drying out your hair. Dry hair is a haven for static. If you want electricity free strands, then try to lay off the styling tool and heated appliances.
