No doubt, winter is a time of cold noses, soft knitwear, and static hair. I’m pretty sure you too, as much as I do, love the soft touch of wool on your skin and hate when your hair all the sudden becomes static. Fortunately, I came up with the right hair care that helps me fight the static hair.
You can find all the products I use against the static hair at the bottom of the post. Also, make sure you subscribe to my Youtube Channel and be the first one to see all the secrets of my anti-static hair care.
You might still be wondering why your hair becomes static in the winter. Unfortunately, I can’t give you a long scientific explanation. Anyway, I’m sure knowing why won’t help you much when dealing with the static hair everytime you take off some layer of clothes you are wearing on a cold and dry winter day. To put it briefly, what you really need to know when it comes to static hair, is that your hair is especially prone to static electricity when it’s dry and damaged.
Obviously, this doesn’t happen to your hair only in winter. And yes, that friction, which caused crackling and the attraction of your hair last summer when you took off your synthetic dress was because of your dry hair.
HYDRATE AND PROTECT YOUR HAIR EVERYDAY
The first thing I want you to remember from this blog post is to hydrate and protect your hair all year long. In particular, it is important to take extra care before the main seasons of static hair. Believe me; I had an extremely dry and bad hair year a few years ago. And I learned my lesson in the cruelest way.
Back to the haircare, if you don’t hydrate your hair every day during the entire year, you really need to do this at least few weeks per year. And no, I don’t mean the middle of winter and summer when your hair is already extremely dry.
USE THE HAIR MASK AT LEAST ONCE PER WEEK
Although giving an intensely nourishing treatment to your hair will indeed repair dry and damaged hair any time of the year, this won’t always save you from the static hair. When it comes to solving the static hair problem, it is even more important that you start applying all sorts of revitalizing and repair mask into your hair before the end of autumn and spring. Since hair usually needs few weeks to recover and get truly hydrated.
Ps. I leave hair mask on my hair extra long for an optimum shining result.
While good hair masks, like the one I’m using from Balmain Hair Couture, will rehydrate your hair and prepare it for the season of static hair, you might still face the static hair sometimes. Usually the day you wash your hair. Even though your hair might not end up all over your face, you might still hear some crackling the minute you put off your sweater. Therefore, you need to take the other two steps, too.
BRUSH YOUR HAIR WITH THE CERAMIC BRUSH OR A COMB
To prevent your hair from being prone to static electricity, you need to make sure you are using the right brush and apply the argan oil in your hair, as well. Honestly, I feel this is the most important thing for me these days. In spite of all the hair mask and conditioner, I put on my hair every time I wash it. I guess this is because my hair is already well hydrated. And all it needs now is the right styling.
As said, the brush plays and the important part when it comes to static hair. From my experience, I can tell, that not every type of a brush is good for my hair every time of the year. To reduce the static, you need to use either an antistatic brush (yes, they exist) or a comb. No matter what brush or comb you decide to use, it’s important that the teeth on a brush or comb are far apart.
Regardless the friction my favourite brush causes between my hair strands; I can’t put down my boar hair brush that easily. After all, it truly stimulates my scalp and increases the blood circulation to my hair roots. You know, we all need that extra blood circulation for faster hair growth. For that reason, I brush my hair with two different brushes at the same time. First, with my favourite boar hair brush. And then with the round brush from Paul Mitchell that emits negative ions.
APPLY THE ARGAN OIL TO YOUR HAIR EVERY DAY
Finally, the most important thing you need to have when you are dealing with static hair. That is to say, if you don’t take all the steps before, at least apply some argan oil to your hair. I use Argan Moisturizing Elixir from Balmain Hair Couture. You can find it at the end of this post.
I use the argan elixir every day. Perhaps I’m exaggerating slightly when it comes to argan oil. However, I believe this magic product is the secret of the lustrous-looking shine of my hair and my lovely curls.
As said, I use argan oil every day. Starting from the moment I wash my hair. I apply it first on my wet hair before I turn on the hair dryer. When my hair is almost dry, I spreading it through my hair, again. And again when my hair is completely dry after I use the hair spray. Yes, you read it right. I use the hair spray first. Also, I apply the argan elixir every morning and evening before I lie down to my silk pillowcase.
You might have noticed I used argan oil and other times argan elixir. It’s the same thing basically. Although I can’t say for certain, that every argan oil will do the magic. It should, though. Still, I advise you to try the one I use. Hence I can tell this one works against static hair. Plus it makes my hair looking better than ever. Not mentioning it’s the secret of catwalk models, too.
I hope this works great for you too. And you get rid of static hair as I did. If it doesn’t, don’t forget to subscribe to my Youtube Channel to find out some other tips that should help you with dry, static hair.
