Winter Beauty: Static-Free Hair

Nov 13, 2013

We’ve all been there - we take off our cozy wool hats after being out in the winter cold and our hair is standing on end. Even if we put some water on it to calm it down for the moment, the static electricity always comes back. There are two main reasons for static in our hair. The first one is the dry air, artificial heat and wool hats that come with the winter season makes our hair and scalp dry out. The second reason is an overdose of products in your hair. How can we keep our hair static-free this winter? Kidzworld has some tips on how to keep your hair tamed!

Static-Free Hair Tips!

  • 1. Run a dryer sheet gently on your hair. Before you leave the house, put a few sheets in your bag if your hair decides to act up later on! Don’t coat your hair TOO much though, just run it gently on the top of your hair.
  • 2. Switch to an ultra moisturizing shampoo and conditioner like Herbal Essences Hydralicious Reconditioning Shampoo and Conditioner ($4.29) or Suave Moisturizing Shampoo and Conditioner with Almond and Shea Butter ($3.49).
  • 3. Deep condition your hair once a week to keep it extra hydrated with a deep conditioning hair mask or hot oil treatment. Try something like Alberta V05 Hot Oil Weekly Intense Conditioning Treatment ($3.99) . This will help keep your hair smooth and moisturized.
  • 4. Stop using hair spray and other aerosol styling sprays in your hair. This is crucial for controlling static. It may seem to help at first but it just dries out your hair and makes it more prone to static. Switch to a styling cream or balm instead.
  • 5. Use wooden or natural bristle brushes and combs on your hair. Synthetic brushes hold more of a static charge.
  • 6. Rinse your hair with lukewarm water, never with hot water. Using too hot water on your hair will cause it to dry out. Blast it with some cool water at the end to hold extra shine in your hair.
  • 7. Use a leave-in conditioner when your hair is still damp like Aussie Leave-In Conditioner Hair Insurance ($4.49).
  • 8. If you’re doing all of the above to keep your hair moisturized and it’s STILL full of static, you may just have too much product build-up in your hair. Use a clarifying shampoo once a week like Neutrogena Anti-Residue Shampoo ($5.99) to help cleanse your hair of excess product so the conditioner can sink in.

no you shouldn't!I bet, the friends that are pressuring you are girls only because they are jealous of your girl,because of her personality and style,and probably, most likely that they wanna be your girlfriend as well! ~~comment me back if you like!:)

I'm not sure whether you have actual depression or not (Ask your doctor if you feel you do, they'll be able to help. ^^), but I'm really sorry you feel depressed. I've been there too, and it really does feel like no one cares.   I know you said it's awkward, but try talking to your dad about it. You said he's the only one who seems to listen, so I'm sure he will listen and try to understand. If you start feeling really depressed every day, try doing things to make you feel happier. I don't know what you like to do, but you should do things like relaxing, reading, talking to people and spending more time outside. Smiling more often can help relieve stress and make you happier as well. c: Try meeting new people too. It seems as though your current friends are bringing you down, so you can try to talk to them if you like or find more friends who'll listen and care about you (however, try to keep your old friends as well. They are your friends after all, and it's hard being lonely). You've got friends on here too. But please don't think about doing anything harmful to yourself. You might not be thinking like that now, but being depressed can lead people to this and it's really not the answer.  Good luck! ^u^
