In winter our hair often electrifies. As a matter of fact, static electricity that accumulates in hair is very harmful. It makes hair thinner and weaker so that it may start to break and lose its color. To say nothing of the ends of your hair that usually split in winter and make it difficult to arrange and manage. Static electricity can also be one of the causes of winter hair loss. How annoying it all is! But is there anything can we do about it?
The easiest way to reduce buildup of static electricity in hair is to use a common antistatic agent. But don’t sprinkle it on your hair but rather on the comb and brush. You can also use it on your winter cap for preventive measures. It is also possible to substitute the antistatic agent with a usual antistatic hair spray from time to time.
Speaking about combs and brushes, avoid using the latter, especially those with plastic or metal teeth. Use only wooden combs instead (or combs with ceramic coating). For better results drip a few drops of some essential oil (almond, lavender, peach, jojoba etc.) on the comb.
Also there are special shampoos and sprays with antistatic or smoothing effect. They will definitely do their job making your hair more manageable.
As a rule, hair that is over-dried and thin accumulates most of static electricity. Therefore, you will benefit from various moisturizers: balms and masks. By the way, they will also help you restore color of your hair and make it look more lustrous.
