I didn’t have static hair for over 5 years. I don’t know what happen this year. I am sitting with hair balm and towel on my head. I will wash it in about one hour or so. This is my second hair treatment in two days. What would you do with static hair?

Are you using a hair straightener or are you just trying to combat it with products...? If you use a treatment leave it wet and then use a straightener you should have no more case of the frizzies. Thanks Zelo

Remember to not burn your hair and follow instructions... it is also going to straighten any waviness you have in your hair as well. Thanks Zelo

I would harness the static electricity to power all my electrical devices in the house. Or maybe just shock my cat on the nose when she tries to drink my coffee. LOL

All I do is just shampoo, use a conditioner then comb it continuously. I have a wavy hair, as I am also wondering why it became like that knowing that my hair was straight when I was a kid. I've never heard nor seen of anyone having a static hair, but I guess that has something to do with our internal body conditions..

maybe it has to do with dry air and heating...

I don't have static hair, but from time to time I have static electricity in my body. This is irregular, and may not happen for a couple of years. Then without warning I will get a shock from the door handle on my car. This may last a day or so, then disappear. There is no logic for this.

What I do for static hair is that after I have styled it I take some simple hand lotion and rub it into my hand and then sparingly spread it over my hair. It doesn't show in your hair and it helps keep your hair in place without the electricity!

I have the same problem. Actually I've had it since I remember. I always thought that maybe it was because it was fine and curly, but who knows why LOL I find it gets a bit better when I rinse my hair with a mix of water and vinegar. At least it seems to work better than most expensive hair treatments for me.
