"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.
