Hair Question: Prevent Static Flyaway Hair

Thursday, March 05, 2009

Question:

"What does it mean to have static hair? My hair just stick right up after it dry, not all of it, but like certain pieces."

Advice: Static hair is caused by dryness! It is very common to have static in colder months than it is in warmer months/climates. Dry hair tends to carry positive electrical charges when combed with a plastic comb and then they begin to repel each other the more you comb. When there is less moisture and friction, this only causes more static to arise. Static/flyaway hair is common amongst those with thin, fine, straight or dry hair.


Some ways to prevent it:

  • Moisturize your hair.
  • Use a leave-in conditioner before air drying or blow drying.
  • Stop washing your hair with harsh shampoo's that strip the hair of it's natural oils
  • Use a ionic ceramic blow dryer and flat iron when applying heat to your hair. These tools dry the hair without robbing the hair of moisture and it reduces flyaway hair.
  • Use hard rubber, metal or wooden combs since these do not cause static electricity.
  • Use a dab of serum after you've finished styling your hair to give your hair just enough weight for it to lay down.

  2. Thank you Dasia. Ionic/Ceramic/Tourmaline are better simply because they lock moisture into the hair thus reducing frizz, gives shine,and makes your hair feel silkier.
