how to deal with static flyaway hair

There are many factors that can cause static, flyaway hair. You may be surprised to learn that it’s not just a case of bad luck; there are actually some simple things you can do to stop it from happening.


Static Hair is Dry Hair

Those of us plagued with static problems know that it happens most often in winter. This is because hair that’s dried out by the low temperatures and dry air stimulates static electricity build up.


So, try to keep your hair nourished and hydrated. This can be achieved in a number of ways. One way is using a top-quality conditioner and applying it properly. This means concentrating on your tips and lengths, not your scalp, and leaving it on for a couple of minutes before rinsing.


An even better idea is using leave-in conditioner, like the ones from the Garnier Leave-In range.


Be Gentle

Another major cause of static hair is too much brushing, rubbing, and tugging. All that fiddling causes static build up, so opt for a wide-toothed comb instead. When you dry your hair, be gentle. A lot of hair damage can be avoided simply by patting your hair dry when it’s wet.


Finally, there are some great Garnier products for shiny hair that can help you get a handle on static, flyaway hair. Try coconut or almond oil when you notice your hair is dry. By rubbing just a small amount onto your hands then running your fingers through the tips and length, you can achieve great shine in a healthy, natural way.
