Besides snowflakes, snug mittens and rosy cheeks, winter invariably brings with itself something else – hair static. The cooler and drier air becomes the more static develops in our hair due to lack of moisture. Women with thin and fine hair are particularly vulnerable to this problem. Hair static causes our strands to stick to our cheeks or fly off our heads (and ruin every possible hairstyle that we try!). Plus, the heat from silk scarves and woolen collars in our winter clothing also aggravate flyways and static in our hair. However, the question is – is there a solution to this problem?
There sure is!
Here are the three best ways to get rid of hair static in winter:
1/ Mist with Water
The lack of moisture in winter air causes static to build up in our hair during the season. The best (and the most economical) way to deal with this issue is to keep your precious locks well moisturized! Keep a misting bottle of water handy with you at all times and spritz your mane generously with it every now and then throughout the day. This will prevent your strands from sticking out and looking like a fuzzy halo.
2/ Use a Serum Spray
Moisture plays an important role in maintaining the volume, texture and structure of our hair, whether it is short, medium-length or long, straight, wavy or curly. A strand smoother serum infuses your tresses with essential moisture, conditions the cuticles and makes them soft and smooth. A gentle spritz of
strand smoother serum spray will keep hair static in check.
3/ Use Hairspray
This is by far the oldest trick in the book and works every single time! Just spritz some hairspray on your comb or directly on your top hair before brushing it out to not only set your hairstyle but also keep annoying flyways in check and eliminate static charge from your hair. A word of caution though – most hairsprays contain alcohol, which is known to dry-out hair and worsen the problem of hair static. The
refore, use the product in moderation to solve the problem instead of triggering it.
Bonus Tip: Braid It Up!
Finally, when everything else fails and your loose strands still keep floating up towards the sky, braid them up. A braided hairstyle will help you win the war against static hair, keep your tresses protected from harsh weather and look super cool too!
