Getting Rid of Static Hair
When you go out in the winter and remove your cute new hat, do you look like you have just seen a ghost. Do you feel that the static in your hair could be used for power in a small country? Well, you are not alone, cold weather in the winter makes this a part of every day life.
The first thing you have to do is admit there is a problem. Next, you need to figure out what to do about it. Is there a solution that will keep your hair follicles behaving? It is not possible to go out without a hat or to simply not wear warm and snuggly wool. So, what do you do about those flyaway hairs?
The first step is to use a clarifying shampoo one or two times a month. For the rest of the time, use a moisturizing shampoo. Deep conditioning your hair should be done at least one or two times a week as well. On the off days, use a conditioning product or detangler. Remember, the more moisture your hair has, the less likely it will be to stand up. However, over conditioning your hair can cause problems as well. You can style your hair as you normally do, but if static ensues, use a detangling spray. There are plenty of options that smell great available in the kids shampoo aisle.
Now that your static is under control, the question is, what do you do when you want to wear your new winter hat? Your lovely hat looks great and matches your coat and scarf, but when you walk inside and take it off you have hat head. Your hair is now frizzy and has that nice line through it that can be hard to get rid of. To fix this problem, you can go the drastic route and simply shave your head. However, this look is not for everyone, so what are some other options? Carry a bottle of detangler or conditioner spray with you, spray it on lightly, and fluff your hair. This will help get rid of the line from your hat. Another option is to lightly spray your hair with hairspray before you put your hat on. Brush the hairspray through your hair and make sure it is completely dry before you place the hat on your head.
When it comes to the winter months, the most important thing to do is moisturize. Remember, a little moisture is the key, does not over do it. Everyone’s hair is different and reacts to different weather conditions in a different manner. You may have to play around with the tips above until you find what works best for you.
