Static hair, flyaways ... A hairstyle that may come as a shock – or at least it will make you look like you’ve suffered one. Static hair and flyaways are more prevalent during the winter months, and there’s a simple explanation for that. Read more and discover the cause of static hair and get 4 tips on how to get rid of that flyaway hairstyle.
What causes static hair? Dry hair is (often) the answer to that question. There may be different reasons why your hair is sometimes dry.
Dry hair during the cold winter months – and thus static hair – occurs because you tend to stay indoors in your cosy centrally-heated house, and you may even have turned up the thermostat a notch. The heated air dries out your strands and leaves them prone to static.
Using the wrong shampoo can also make your hair dry. Shampoos with a high pH may lead to static build-up in your hair, causing flyaways. This applies to all hair types. So keep your chemistry lessons in mind the next time you go shampoo shopping. We recommend our Moisture haircare products from IdHAIR Elements Xclusive range with a pH just around 5.5.
Using only a few means you can tame your static hair in an instant. Read on to get 4 tips on how to tame that static hair. We’ll start with our absolute favourite and then we’ll give you the other tips in random order.
Tame your static hair with a leave-in conditioner – the effect is instantaneous. A leave-in conditioner is the ideal quick fix. It prevents static build-up because it moisturizes your hair the instant you apply it – at least if you use our Moisture Leave-In Conditioning Cream from the IdHAIR Elements Xclusive range. The hydrolysed pea protein in the product helps you tame your static strands.
Begin your fight against those flyaways in the shower. Static hair is often a result of dry hair. So start by taking a closer look at the shampoo you use. Look for a shampoo that is rich in moisturizing ingredients to take care of your strands and leave them healthy and moisturized. Moisturizing ingredients in a shampoo may, for example, be hydrolysed pea protein, like in the Moisture Shampoo from the IdHAIR Elements Xclusive range.
Always complete your hair cleansing process using a good conditioner containing moisturizing ingredients such as the Moisture Conditioner from the IdHAIR Elements Xclusive range. Like the rest of the Moisture series from the IdHAIR Elements Xclusive range, the conditioner contains hydrolysed pea protein, which adds moisture to your static strands.
Using a hair treatment 1-2 times a week can really do wonders for your hair and help you combat static hair. The reason for this is exactly the same as in tips 1-3 above: moisturize, moisturize, moisturize. Look for a low-pH hair treatment rich in moisture like the Repair Treatment from the IdHAIR Elements Xclusive range.
With these 4 quick fixes for static hair, you’re now well-equipped to tame those fickle flyaways. Enjoy!
Have a nice hair day!
