Help, I have really static hair!
Static hair isn't the end of the world and fixing it is not a mission impossible.
Here's some easy steps to achieving hair that does as its told and looks silky and perfectly smooth.
Your first mission, should you choose to accept it, is to discharge your hair of all static electricity.
How do you do this? Hair needs to be kept hydrated, so choose a mild shampoo which won't be too harsh on your hair. Rinse it out with cold water as this smooths the cuticles of your hair as well as closing them up, which stops more dirt getting in.
Pat your hair dry with a towel rather than rubbing it, and learn to love leaving your hair to dry naturally. Your number-one enemy here is the hair-dryer! If you really have no choice, finish your hair-drying session with some cold air and use protective masques to keep your locks safe from the heat (see below.)
You should use a brush made of natural materials, such as one with a wooden handle and boar bristles. Brushes made of metal and synthetic materials (much like clothes made out of synthetic materials) are to be avoided at all costs!
Try to find a shampoo that makes your hair smooth and silky without weighing it down or leaving lots of residue. This is an important first step to overcoming static hair.
Also, make sure to find a detangling cream treatment that is rich in silk proteins, as this will help to keep your hair smooth as well as protecting it from being damaged by your hair-dryer or straighteners. Finish off your hair care routine with a detangling spray made specifically for static hair. You should use this spray every day!
Zap the static right out of your hair!
