We slowly put on sweaters, wrap scarves around our necks, and put hats on our heads. And whether we like it or not, the cold months bring with them one unwelcome phenomenon – unruly electrifying hair. But we have good news. We have written nine tips for you, which will help you fight against the electrification of hair.
Why does hair electrify at all?
When the hair is not hydrated enough, it can “stick” like a magnet on a piece of clothing when putting on a sweater or taking off a hat. The cause is static electricity and the ability of electrons to move between different environments, which is still supported by relatively dry air in the cold months.
How to electrify hair
- Use an anti-electrifying shampoo, such as Kérastase Discipline Bain Fluidealiste. It contains the Morpho-Kératine ™ anti-creasing complex, but you will also find ingredients for easy combing and revitalization. Try to wash your mane as little as possible. Otherwise, you contribute to its further drying and thus to the possible electrification of the hair. Of course, don’t forget about the moisturizing conditioner.
- Is the combination of conditioner and shampoo for electrifying hair, not enough? Maybe it’s time for Goldwell Dualsenses Just Smooth oil for stubborn and frizzy hair with kukui nut oil, or Framesi For-Me Smooth & Disciplined smoothing and fixing glaze. In its composition, you will find extracts from nori and wakame algae, as well as a hydrating extract from the tara tree. Schwarzkopf Professional BC Bonacure Keratin Smooth Perfect rinse-free two-phase serum will also help.
- The mask will save it. Sometimes, hair is so “exhausted” in the cold months that it needs a massive dose of nutrients and hydration. You will not spoil anything with a homemade mask of banana, avocado, macadamia, or olive oil.
- Clean responsibly. What doesn’t help against electrifying hair? An “old school” hair dryer that dries them so that they immediately start to stand on your head. Instead, choose a more gentle variant – a hairdryer with an ionizer. In addition to drying hair much more gently and quickly than regular hairdryers, it can reduce static electricity.
- Don’t forget the thermal protection. Even with an ion dryer, you should protect your hair with appropriate care and thermal protection. L’Oréal Professionnel Steampod filling and smoothing cream with thermal protection up to 210 ° C is ideal. However, you may prefer Kérastase Discipline Kératine Thermique , which contains ceramides, xylose and other care ingredients. This protects the hair up to a temperature of 180 ° C.
- Read properly. Do you follow all the previous tips, but you still can’t get rid of electrifying hair? The material of your brush is also essential. It would help if you had a wooden, metal, boar bristle or, for example, a smoothing antistatic hairbrush Tangle Teezer The Ultimate.
- Paint, but not the head. Spray a small amount of Wella Professionals Performance or L’Oréal Professionnel Infinium on a brush or comb and comb your hair.
- Watch your clothes. If you wear nylon and polyester, it’s no wonder that static electricity holds you like a tick. At least in winter, replace the synthetics with things made of cotton, wool, or silk.
- Copies and ponytails make sure. Sometimes it just doesn’t help at all, no matter how hard you try. On days like this, it doesn’t make sense for you to worry. Make a ponytail, bun, or braid.
Quick help against electrifying hair
Are you outside, and static electricity has suddenly started to make your life miserable? Wondering what to use for electrifying hair, and you don’t have any antistatic hair spray? Here are two more bonus tips for getting rid of this problem:
- Use hand cream or body lotion. Spread a pea-sized amount in your palms and run your fingers through the ends of the hair or critical areas.
- While not ideal, electrifying hair can also be appeased with water. Moisten your palms and fingers. Gently smooth or comb the areas charged with static electricity.
