Static electricity may create flyaway hair conditions in cold winter months, low humidity or dry air. This typical hair problem comes from the buildup of positively charged particles in your hair and may be annoying as it makes your hair literally stand up on end. There are several home remedies you can use or the other options involve the application of hair products.
Things You'll Need:
Mousse, gel or pomade
Add hair products to your hair, such as mousse, gel or pomade. Place a quarter-sized drop into your hand and run your hands through your hair. Allow the product to absorb into your hair and create weight to hold the hair down.
Mist hair spray onto your brush. Run it down the hair from the roots to the ends to add weight to your hair. Finish styling your hair and use the hair spray liberally over your hair to reduce flyaway strands and static electricity.
Rub your hair with a metal clothes hanger. Start at the top of the head and slide the hanger over the hair to the ends to absorb the electricity.
Pass a fabric softening dryer sheet through your hair and work it down the ends of the shaft. Reduce the electricity in your hair before resuming styling as usual.
Change your hairbrush from a synthetic brush to one with natural materials. Pick a boar-bristle hair brush as it reduces static electricity buildup.
