My daughter has thin hair that is always full of static. I have found the best way to keep it under control when we are away from home. I keep a small tube of hand lotion in my purse. When her hair starts "fly away", I rub lotion into my hands, then onto her hair. It keep the frizzes down for a while and moistens my hands too!

Rather than using lotion, fill a small tube/bottle with a thinned out with water amount of clarifying condition. Then you know it will come out of her hair easily.
I know it USED to be the think back about 30-50 years ago to spuff up babies hair with lotion after their baths, BUT cradle cap and other things are reminders of what would happen. Also, washing your hair more than once a week was totally frowned on. Suave was the only product to use than. The name meant a female hair dressing.

BEST thing is keep a static cling dryer sheet in your purse-just one swoop of it over the hair keeps it from becoming static and in the mosquito days it also keeps them away as well. You can also get organic ones but for the most part they are very safe - i mean people do us eit on their clothes to keep static away. It will keep your purse fresh too :)
