Tame Static-y Hair

 

Got a crazy case of static strands? You don’t have to wait ‘til summer to land the tresses you crave. Here are our best tricks for calming crazy hair.


Say see ya to static, and wear your fave hats and sweaters without furious flyaways. 


Cold air carries less moisture, which makes it easier for your hair to collect positive charges. So, the skinny strands start to repel away from each other. Basically, you can blame science for your frizzy freakouts.

 


Luckily, we’ve got plenty of tricks to pull the plug on this experiment.

Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize

Use a leave-in conditioner to hydrate hair and leave it less susceptible to static. Avoid using hair tools, and skip the occasional shampoo to make sure your strands have plenty of natural oils (trust us, that’s a good thing).




Toss Your Plastic-Bristled Brush

Brushes made of hard rubber, metal, or natural fibers are better for your locks.  Remember: avoid brushes with plastic bristles or risk increasing your static factor. Using a small amount of hairspray, either directly on your hair or worked through with a comb, can also help to keep those flyaways in line.


Do a New ‘Do

Gotta get those locks outta your face, like, now? If you wanna get creative, try dressing up that everyday ponytail with an interesting new style. Part your hair in the middle of your head. Use a brush to gently backcomb some strands at the crown of your head. Loosely gather the hair together in the back and secure with an elastic around the nape of your neck (it’s OK if it looks a bit messy!).


As a finishing touch, tie a cute hair scarf or secure a headband behind your ears.  This gets your hair out of your face so it can’t annoy you anymore, while still looking totally relaxed and cute!


Super Quick Fix

The fastest static trick ever? Gently rub a dryer sheet on your locks. Weirdly enough, it’ll kill cling fast. Love it!
