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.

Hi, I'm not really into fashion but I can tell you one thing. You can just dress normally, just the way you like! It doesn't matter whether you're a teenager or not. It's also really important to you feel comfortable in your clothes. Remember, your clothing won't define you! :D

Okay, so my hair isn't the 'best'. I have 'West Indian' Hair (it's naturally curly) and I have to use loads of products to make it nice when I'm straightening my hair. It then dries and all the softness and grease has gone ( :-( ). That's the annoying part. I would like a few nice, easy hairstyles that will look nice with my West Indian hair (that's all spiky and spidery when it's been straightened) even if it's as simple as peeling an orange! Anything would help!

I am a teenage girl, so I'm either supposed to dress colorful or just fully goth. I want to dress grunge. Basically 90's street kinda. My mom gets mad at my cause she doesn't want me dressing all black, I told her that's not what grunge is. So, I am dressing pretty grunge, but I need ideas on hair styles and makeup for this style.

Ok, so I have a Best Friend, I used to have 2, but one moved away and won't text me, and the other still "acts" like my best friend, but here is the problem. When I do stuff with other people, it offends her, when I don't reply to her text real quick, in her mind, im ignoring her. IT'S ALSO STARTING TO GET ANNOYING CAUSE SHE COPIES ME. She copied my halloween costume, i was gonna be a character off of american horror story. If i don't share my music with her, she says sharing is caring and she walks off.   Now I understand that this might be social and anxiety issues and she needs somebody to cling onto. But I'm just tired of trying. I need advice : (
