HELP MY HAIR STATIC GO AWAY!!
From hat hair to static electricity, split ends to dry frizz, when winter weather hits, a bad hair day can last an entire season. In fact, even if you live in a moderate
climate, experts say you’re still susceptible changes as the seasons pass.
WHY YOU ASK? Its so dry in the winter.. there is no humidity in the air!! The environment can have some of the most damaging effects on hair in both
summer and winter, but in winter it’s often worse because people generally don’t take as many precautions to protect their hair. Sun exposure (which can be as intense on a ski slope as it is on a beach) combined with a blustery winter wind (which can snarl hair) as well as snow, rain, and icy cold (which makes hair brittle and dry) can all come together to create some pretty bad winter hair days and hair static!
So what can you do?
If you plan to spend all your time inside with a nice fire and a hot
toddy ..BEWARE — winter is still your hair’s enemy. The reason is indoor heating, which can be compared to spending an entire afternoon under a hair dryer! If your skin feels dry, you put lotion on it. Same goes for your hair. The dry air in the winter is equivalent to the sun in the summer. This being said, a moisturizing conditioner and a leave in conditioner in the winter are a must! WE KNOW IT WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE! We suggest: Redken Extreme Conditioner, or Redken Curvaceous Conditioner mixed with water at a Ratio of 1:4 in a spray bottle or Pureology Color Fanatic or Curl Complete Taming Butters work amazing!
Avoid Plastic Combs:
Yes, you read correctly – switch to metal! Plastic combs will only make your hair static worse! You can thank science. Since metal conducts energy, you won’t have any issue with a metal comb.
Comb with Hairspray:
It may sound a little sticky, but this is one of the best techniques to eliminate those unsightly flyaways. Spritz some hair spray on your comb and brush it through your hair to tame those uncooperative strands – watch as they miraculously fall into place before your eyes! We love Redken Control Addict Strong hold hair spray for 24 hour control against humidity without residue or flaking. This anti humidity hair spray has ultimate brushability and flexibility, allowing to easily change styles – available at EG Salon.
