What is your number one hair issue in the winter? Static, right?! It sure is for this girl. You take off your hat or wrap, the scarf around your neck, and your hair immediately sticks up in the most unmanageable way... Am I right? Well, I think it's high time we tackle this winter hair problem, so let's talk about how to get static-free hair! Like with most beauty issues, product can be your best friend. Use the right hair-care products and you'll definitely cut down on those static filled tresses! I'm not talking about perfection, in fact, my look of choice is more undone, as you can see, but there's a big difference between static and texture... So, let's talk about my top product picks for static free hair!
Wash your hair less...The drier your hair is, the more static prone it will be, so don't wash your hair every day when you can help it. And when you do wash your hair, make sure you don't rub it too hard with your towel. That just creates friction. Instead, dab it gently with a high quality towel like the ones you can find at Coyuchi. Their air weight towels absorb moisture quickly and dry quickly too, for that matter. I don't know about you, but I hate it when my towels take forever and a day to dry. Just sayin'!
Condition, condition, condition... Dry hair equals static-prone hair, so you want to moisturize your mane as much as possible. And I'm talking about going a step beyond your normal every day in-shower conditioner. Keep doing that, of course, but also consider a leave-in conditioner and even a mask for deep conditioning. I'm crushin' on EVOLVhSmartStart Leave-in Conditioner these days. You spritz it on after towel drying your hair to guarantee less fly-aways, and thus, less static. I also dig their UltraRepair Reconstructing Masque. Winter's cold, dry air is tough on ordinary hair, but dry colored strands? Forget about it. I highly suggest using a mask weekly, or even every other day when your hair really needs the extra help.
I also like the Pureology Smooth Perfection treatment. It's not quite as lightweight a formula as the SmartStart, so it's perfect for those of you who also have thick, wild child tresses, like moi. And while it's thicker, it doesn't hinder movement. You can still rock those easy breezy styles if you want to, because your hair won't be weighed down. So, if you, too, have colored, frizz-prone hair, this is just another effective tool to add to your static fighting arsenal!
Now that you have a handle on how to get static free hair this winter, who's ready to enjoy way more GOOD hair days?!
