Static

How do you deal with static in your hair? It's winter here in Michigan, and my hair is out of control! It's completely distracting while I'm at work. When I talk to people, it gets in my mouth while I'm talking. It flies around everywhere while I try to get things done. It's very embarassing! How do you get the static out of your hair? The air is dry, so I obviously can't do anything about that. What hair products do you find work best for taking away the static? Is there something other than hair products that you use on your hair?

There are two different ways I've heard of to do this....one is to spray your hairbrush with hairspray and then brush it through your hair. The other one, now don't laugh, is to use a dryer sheet, it gets rid of static electricity, and just run it lightly over your hair. I hear you laughing, haha. That's all I know....and good luck.

Hey, Kash. Great advice and thanks for the tips! I actually have heard of the dryer sheet trick a few months ago from a lady who cut my hair. I need to get some that smell good so I'll want to put them on my hair. (LOL) I probably won't go through them fast at all if I use them on my hair rather than in my dryer! Thanks again. I'm going to be in good shape after this discussion. :)

Hey, I came up with a bright idea!, haha. Maybe you can find some "unscented" one's and put your favorite smelling perfume on it, uh huh, pretty good huh?, haha. I'm in such a silly mood today, please excuse me.

Oh no, I don't think you're crazy at all. I love your idea! My boyfriend actually got me my new favorite scent of perfume for Christmas. It's called 'Super Model' from Victoria's Secret. I know it sounds kind of weird and I don't normally buy stuff from there, but this is definitely an exception. Oh, and he didn't go in the store to buy it. (LOL) Gotta love eBay! So now you're thinking we're both pretty wacky, huh? Thanks again for the idea. I really appreciate it!

That antistatic spray that you spray on your clothes to stop static cling works on your hairbrush too. Then you just brush your hair. It doesn't weigh your hair down like cream rinse etc.

Wow, I never thought of that either. Sounds like a great idea - thanks! I'm glad you mentioned that it won't weigh hair down because I have really fine hair and if I use anything heavy like gel, my hair gets greasy really fast. I know it isn't exactly good for it, but I have to wash my hair every day. I hate the feeling of it being greasy and I'm really paranoid about it - lol. Thanks again for the idea! I definitely need to stock up on some of this stuff!

Aussie makes a leave in spray and shine conditioner. It works well to tone down the static. I also end up pulling my hair up alot in the winter. Either a braid or a twist of some sort just to keep it up off my face.

Thanks, Cynical! I love the Aussie brand hair products because they're purple (one of my favorite colors - lol) and their products always smell so good! I didn't realize they made anything like that. I sounds like a Pantene Pro-V spray that I used several years ago. It worked pretty well until it started smelling funny. Thanks again for the tip! I'll definitely have to add this to my collection.
