Q&A Flyaway hair

Q & A My hair gets crazy static in this weather. What am I doing wrong and how can I fix it?

Static happens when your hair picks up an electrical charge from the dry air. It’s really common in the winter months because there is less moisture in the air. Overly cleansed hair tends to suffer more and you may find it useful to switch to a more hydrating shampoo and conditioner for your hair type. We have all been there, in Zara wrestling a top over our heads only to reveal a static mess that no amount of frantic patting will tame. Learn to love hair spray. It will be your hair’s best friend in these colder months, it will lock in moisture and prevent those fly way moments. Elnett by L’Oreal is a good one; it holds without giving your hair that typical sticky, hairsprayed feel. A great little cheat that I learnt a few years ago and have been telling my clients ever since… Tumble Dryer sheets. Keep one in your handbag for major emergencies. Just whip it out and wipe all over and under your hair. The static will disappear as if by magic and you can reuse the same sheet a few times too! Genius.
