Why is my hair static?
A client of ours from Satellite Steve’s recently asked Azzuro Hair Design why her hair was suddenly so static… was it her hairbrush? Or her new shampoo?
The answer in this case was simple… it was her footwear!
Sometimes for no apparent reason your hair looks like you just stuck your finger in a socket because your hair has accumulated static. There are a number of reasons why your hair might suddenly be static and often they have nothing to do with your actual hair care regime! For example wearing a jumper that has recently been in the dryer can pass static electricity to your hair, making it stand on end. Rubber-soled shoes can also conduct electricity as they rub along the carpet whilst leather shoes will not conduct as much electricity, which will prevent staticky hair.
To prevent static try these tips….
- Brush your hair with a hairbrush containing natural bristles instead of synthetic bristles because wood bristles conduct less static electricity than plastic.
- Cut back on hairspray which contains alcohol and dries out hair even more. To reduce flyaway hair, reduce the amount of hairspray you use each day.
- Apply several drops of serum to the palms of your hands and rub your hands back and forth several times to evenly coat them. Gently smooth your hair, from roots to ends to help reduce the static electricity on your hair.
- Run a tumble dryer softening sheet over your hair for instant sleek results and a lovely smell that lasts all day!
