Remedies for Static Hair

When your hair is full of static and you can't do anything with it, just rub a dryer sheet on it. My 5 year old is always full of static and her hair is always looking unkempt. The dryer sheet works well. It will also stop static on clothes if you rub it over problem areas.

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.

Take a dryer sheet (fabric softener sheet made for dryers) & rub this on the top of your head. Just a TINY bit. It works EVERY time!

Water kills static. You'll notice that the static builds up more when it's not raining and there's low humidity in the air. Try wetting your hairbrush, or put some water in a spray mister bottle and spritz it on your hair.

Dryer sheets are suppost to work. I have tried it and it worked. Just rub a dryer sheet straight down your shaft.

I have VERY oily, thin and staticy hair. I am afraid that leave-in conditioner and dryer sheets will make it look greasy. When I use pomade or defining cream it weighs it down, any more suggestions for all of that?

I might be repeating myself, not sure because i wasn't logged in, sorry.
I wash, condition, rinse, then add about a nickel sized amount of conditioner back into my hair. I put it mostly on the ends and avoid the roots, combing it through really well. It works like a styling product but never gets stiff, sticky or dull and keeps my hair in great shape. Also, if you spritz your hair with water, you can add a bit of conditioner to that.
Another thing to think about is that you might need a milder shampoo in the winter than when it's hot out. Hair shouldn't be "squeaky" clean, that means it's stripping off too much of the "good" oil too.

I had the same problem. I would watch the girls on the commercials flip their hair and every hair falls back in place, made me jealous.
I found that using gel works. I don't use conditioner. After I wash my hair I put about a quarter size ball of gel on my palms and rub them together and then run my fingers through my hair. Use less if you have short hair. You can then either let your hair dry naturally or blow dry. I found the fly away problem has disappeared.

A quick spray of static guard on your brush will help!

When I'm somewhere where I can't have my static guard handy, I put a small amount of hand cream on my hands, rub together til most of it is absorbed then I run my hands through my hair. Works well.

Using static guard or bounce sheets could be toxic since it has chemicals. Maybe that route is not wise.

When you go to style your hair after drying, why not try a spritz or two of hairspray on your brush before running it through your hair? I usually do this and pony tail my hair and spray around the bangs lightly to keep the flyaways at bay.

Try using olive oil, or a weekly conditioning mask. Mashed avocados work well as a hair mask if you are concerned about chemicals.

I would strongly advise not to use laundry products in your hair. The chemicals in them are graded for laundry, not for hair which is damaged easily. Plus, the health risks of that are too much of a gamble.

Use lots and lots of hair spray gel and mousse!

I have little flyaways poking up in the middle of my scalp. How do I get rid of them without using hair gels?

If your hair is on the dry side, try lotioning your hands, rubbing it in fairly well, then using them to smooth down the hair. That should leave just enough lotion on your hair to tame the flyaways a bit.

Try using a dryer sheet. You can use it over and over again. I keep one in a drawer with my hair brush. You can also just rub it through the brush if you don't want to apply it directly to your hair.

I use wash out conditioner after I towel dry my hair. I use a pea sized amount and rub it on the ends, this keeps the frizzies from coming after it dries.

I would use a good cream rinse. It does not have to be expensive. I am not a believer in putting food products in my hair.
