It’s unruly, annoying, frustrating & won’t go away!

STATIC! It sticks to our cheeks, flies outwardly off our head and ruins every photo we take. It’s most prominent in the winter season due to the lack of moisture in the air causing our hair to become positively charged and resist each other as soon as the temperature drops. The rubbing from hats, scarves and faux fur hoodies certainly attribute to this problem. We find ourselves constantly sweeping our hair from side to side trying to smooth it down, maybe even adding some human saliva on the hand for the extra help.

We’ve got helpful tips for those who fight this bad boy almost every single day!

1. CONDITION, CONDITION, CONDITION
Because of the temperature drop, the air becomes drier which also results in our hair becoming more dry. Using a hydrating/moisturizing shampoo and conditioner to help put the moisture back into the hair. This is your first step to success of defeating this monster.

2. AVOID PLASTIC COMBS
The plastic creates static electricity when rubbed against the hair, whereas using a metal comb will act as a conductor and neutralize the positively charged ions. Wooden combs are also an option.

3. USE AN IONIC BLOW-DRYER
Like stated before, hair is positively charged. Using a dryer, BioIonic Powerlight Dryer is absolute favorite, that has negatively charged ions baked into the tool and blown onto the hair will neutralize the electron charge and aid in smoothing the hair down.

4. HAIRSPRAY
It’s an obvious solution, but keep in mind it won’t reduce static by itself alone. It’s for when you’re finishing your style to spray down those few stubborn flyaways. Spray the product in spurts versus holding the nozzle down to avoid over using and getting a “crunchy” feel.

5. SERUM OR OIL
Not only is it a great hydrating product, the natural oils found in these products to smooth the hair down. Side note, because they are very hydrating, they can create a little weight on the hair aiding in smoothing the hair. Use them in moderation, for a little bit goes a long way!
