Stop Winter Static From Ruining Your Style

Static is a pet peeve of many during winter. It shocks you, makes your clothes cling, and makes your hair perform some amazing, yet annoying, tricks. Your strands may stand on end or might seem to glue themselves to your face. Either way, static in your hair is frustrating but with a few simple home remedies and salon treatments you can stop static from ruining your style.

What Causes Static?

Before we learn how to control static, first we have to learn what causes it. When two objects, like your hat and your hair, rub against one another it creates friction and transfers electrons from one to the other. This swap of electrons creates a charge of static electricity. When there is humidity in the air and on surfaces this charge is able to dissipate, but when the air is dry there is nothing to conduct the charge away from your hair. This static charge causes your hairs to repel one another like magnets, your strands stand on end. But how do you avoid it?

Moisturize Your Hair and Air

The easiest way to avoid static is to keep your hair moisturized and humidify the air. Switch out your lighter summer hair products for richer ultra-moisturizing formulas. Adding moisture to the air with a cool mist humidifier can also help keep static at bay. There are even small portable humidifiers that you can easily take with you in the car or even your office space.

Clean Your Hairbrush

Giving your hairbrush a good scrub with a clarifying shampoo or dish soap will help to remove styling product buildup. This buildup increases static causing friction when brushing.

Ditch Alcohol Based Products

Alcohol is very drying, and since the goal when battling static is to moisturize, you need to ditch the alcohol. Look for alcohol free products, and consider using a finishing cream. Just a dab smoothed through your hair can quickly get rid of static.

Avoid Over-Drying

Blow drying is notorious for creating static. You can avoid this by drying your hair until slightly damp. Allow it to air dry the rest of the way to avoid static from over-drying.   

Salon Treatments
If you’re still battling static despite your best efforts, you can find help at the salon. Deep conditioning treatments can help tame even the most stubborn static. Or if you want a longer lasting solution, give a smoothing treatment a try for silky smooth strands all winter long.
