How To Deal With Static Hair?

Causes of static electricity in our hair

The static electricity of the hair is generated by the accumulation of electric charge in our hair, which means that the hair has gained some extra electrons due to friction or humidity changes. This will make your hair strands repel each other, making your hair fluffy and difficult to style.

In addition, sometimes the air is dry and the moisture in the air is particularly low. At this time, static electricity is usually more obvious (water is an important conductor of energy, so the higher the humidity, the lower the static electricity). Especially when we wear hats in winter and our hair rubs inside the hat, a lot of static electricity will be generated.

If you have this problem, then read on. Here are some ways to help you solve the problem of static hair.

  • Use a moisturizing shampoo.

Keeping your hair moisturized is the easiest way to ensure that your hair has the necessary moisture for moisturizing to resist frizz, static electricity, and other unpleasant weather side effects. By using the right shampoo products, your scalp can maintain the natural balance of moisture and oil, and keep the hair dry and nourished.

  • Be sure to use a conditioner.

It is important to use moisturizing products, but conditioners also play a vital role in avoiding frizz. Although the surfactant ingredients in some shampoos will charge the hair during cleansing, conditioners are designed to counteract this. Of course, they are also designed to help seal the cuticles and improve their overall gloss and manageability. If you want to counteract frizz or static electricity, never skip the use of a conditioner.

  • Do deep care once in a while

If your hair tends to be dry or damaged by other reasons, you may find that regular use of conditioner is not enough to keep your hair moisturized. In this case, deep care about once a week can help restore the gloss and softness of the hair.

  • Apply disposable products anytime and anywhere.

Even if you use first-class care products at home, bad weather during commuting and lunch breaks will ruin everything. A quick solution is to carry a leave-in conditioner or hair oil bottle with you. The moisture in these products will eliminate the charge that causes static electricity, and moisture and grease will make your hair easier to handle again.

  • Stay away from products containing dry ingredients.

Just as you read nutrition labels to understand the ingredients in food, you should do the same when it comes to hair care products. For some people, especially those with curly hair, you may be wary of sulfates. Sulfates are chemicals in shampoos and conditioners that help clean the hair and scalp. But people with naturally dry hair may find that they are too dry, resulting in frizz. Also pay attention to alcohol, which is usually found in gels, styling foams and dry shampoos. Certain forms of alcohol can have a drying effect on the hair and scalp.

  • Less shampoo.

The more shampoo is used, the more oil is lost on the scalp, which leads to drier hair and easy to generate static electricity. Therefore, it is not necessary to wash your hair every day. It is a good choice to wash your hair every other day. In addition, the amount of shampoo used for each hair wash should be controlled so that it can clean the hair.

  • Less heat the hair, and always protect the hair.

Use a hot tool to drain the moisture from the hair. Spraying heat protector helps to lock moisture in the hair. Spray a thermal protector on it before drying to increase gloss and lock in anti-static protection.

  • Tie up hair

If your hair is long enough, a ponytail or braid is an ideal way to prevent static electricity in your hair.

  • Avoid using plastic combs.

Using a plastic comb on your hair can generate static electricity, just like the ancient technique you used when you used to rub plastic balloons on plastic hair to make your hair upright. You can use boar bristle brushes and wooden combs. Although metal combs may help avoid static electricity, do not use them as they may roughen the hair shaft and inevitably lead to breakage.

  • Use a microfiber towel or T-shirt instead of terry cloth to wrap your hair.

Hair is most fragile when wet. Don't rub it actively, but wrap it with a towel dedicated to hair and squeeze it.

The above are the measures to deal with static hair. We hope these can help you.
