Tips for dealing with static hair

Although summer is over and you don't have to deal with frizz anymore, the new season brings new hair dilemmas. We can never get a break, can we? Static is one of the most common hair problems we have to deal with in the fall and winter due to the dry air. Luckily, there are a few things you can do to control the static in your hair.

Get Rid of Old Products

If any of your hair products are older than a year, it's time to toss them in the trash. The nourishing ingredients in these products are likely diluted and can dry out your hair, causing static.

Do a Deep Conditioning Treatment Once a Week

Static occurs in hair that is dry, so it's beneficial to do a deep conditioning treatment once a week to put the moisture back in your hair. A good deep conditioner will penetrate the hair shaft and make it healthy again. And you don't have to spend a lot of money on a good deep conditioner. I personally love putting olive oil in my hair. It adds so much moisture to my strands, making them feel soft and silky. Just add some olive oil to the ends of your hair and leave it on for 30 minutes.

Carry a Static Guard Sheet With You

It's a good idea to carry a static guard sheet in your purse. This way, you instantly have something to swipe your hair with when static occurs. Another thing you can do is bring a hair serum with you. Applying a dime-sized amount of serum to your hair can help get control of some of that static.

Put a Humidifier in Your Room

The air is very dry in the colder months and can really have a negative effect on your hair. A great way to add moisture to the air is to put a humidifier in your room.

Avoid Taking Hot Showers

It might be difficult when it's cold out, but you should try to avoid taking hot showers. Washing your hair with hot water will dry it out.

Following these tips can help you control the static in your hair.
