5 Ways To Stop Getting Static Hair

There are very less things as annoying as having hair that defies gravity and point in all directions. If you have been fighting static hair for long, this is your stop.

Fizziness, static hair and flyaway are a bane for good hair days, and taming your hair from this becomes a constant struggle. Static hair happens when your hair develops an electric charge. That means it has accumulated extra electrons due to friction or changes in humidity. The strands of hair clash, and your hair becomes hard to style. If you have been looking for ways to fight it, we have exactly what you need. Read on to know all about reducing the static change in your hair.

Switch To Ionic Hair Dryers

Dryers that use Ionic technology cause less damage than standard blow-dryers. They release negative ions, which break down the water molecules in smaller fragments that allow for more rapid drying. The negative ions stick onto their positive counterparts producing a neutralizing impact and regulating the electrons within your hair. This helps reduce friction and helps keep your hair free from getting static.

Apply A Leave-In Hair Conditioner

The hair’s moisture gets depleted and becomes dry and frizzy in the winter months, which makes it more susceptible to static electrical discharge. The addition of a conditioner to your hair care can help to prevent this. Conditioners shield your hair from changing climate conditions in the winter, summer, and rainy seasons. Make sure you distribute the conditioner over your hair with a comb. The even spread of this product helps keep your hair from getting tangled.

Spritz A Hairspray

Spray the hairspray on the hair comb, and then run the comb through your hair. This holds the hair’s flyaway in place and stops static electricity from forming. It also spreads the product evenly over your hair.

Apply Moisturizing Hair Products

Dry hair is extremely susceptible to static. Apply moisturizing hair masks, serums, or shampoos that have moisture-rich ingredients such as coconut milk, avocado, bananas as well as shea butter. These ingredients are particularly effective in cold winter months and help to moisturize and soften dry and damaged hair and decrease static.

Beware Of Using Plastic Combs

Plastic combs are like adding static into your hair. Choose metal, wooden or ceramic combs. Metal combs are ideal because they remove static from your hair. There is also an anti-static comb that eliminates the build-up of static. Boar bristle brushes could help since they don’t create any static.
