Do you know the feeling that when you take of your shirt, your hair stands up straight? I’ve had this problem last winter and I have found some tips and tricks that have helped me so I thought why not share them with you?
Especially people with dry and damaged hair suffer from static hair during the colder moths. This happens when the temparatures change too much and when there isn’t enough humidity in the air.
Some tips and tricks to help with static hair
- The first one might sound gross but it is necessary. Wash your hair the least possible. I recommend washing it one or twice a week.
- Use a nourishing shampoo (one that doesn’t contain any silicones!) for dry and damaged hair. One that has really helped me is the Rahua Shampoo. This one is very gentle and gives my hair the moisture that it needs.
- Next apply a conditioner or a hairmask. This will make your hair a bit heavier which is really important if you suffer from static hair. If you don’t have time for this step, apply a leave-in conditioner or apply some Rosehip Oil to the lenghts of your hair. The Rahua conditioner and Josh Rosebrook Enrich mask are two of my favorites.
- It’s also important to rinse your hair with cold water, this will make your hair less prone to getting static.
- For an extra treatment, i like to rinse my hair with some apple cider vinegar. I mix 50 ml of apple cider vinegar with 150 ml cold water. The vinegar is very good for your scalp and makes your hair look extra shiny.
- Let you hair air dry as a blow dyer dries out the hair even more
- Then, don’t brush your hair while it’s still wet. This will damage your hair
- When your hair is almost dry, add a couple of drops of Argan Oil or Rosehip Oil. This will nourish your hair and again, make it heavier
- When your hair is totally dry, comb it through with a wooden comb
Some extra tips:
- Spray some hairspray on the roots of your hair and comb through carefully. I’m not a big fan of this as hairspray tends to try the hair out even more.
- Try not to wear any synthetic clothing. Try wearing cotton, wool or any other natural fabric.
