5 Tricks to Fight Static Hair

Winter is here and for some reason our hair turns into some sort of science experiment…. Static hair is probably one of the worst downsides of Winter – it can make everyday a bad hair day, argh! But lets not get all freaked out! There are solutions! In this blog post I have gathered 5 tricks that will help you fight static electricity in your hair and make your hair look flawless all the way through Winter.

5 Tricks to Fight Static Hair

1. Use a dryer sheet on your hair
Yup, you heard right! Just as dryer sheets can reduce static electricity in clothing, drying sheets can also be run over hair to reduce fly-aways caused by static electricity. You can even press down the dryer sheet onto your hair brush by pushing the bristles through it and comb your hair like you normally do. The dryer sheets are cheap and the tricks is super effective.

2. Use a brush with wooden bristles 
Static electricity tends to worsen when you use a brush made of plastic or other synthetic materials. Brushing with a plastic brush causes friction between the bristles and your hair, which generates static electricity. Look for a brush with wooden or boar bristles and a wooden handle. These natural materials are much gentler on your hair, and won’t generate static electricity.

3. Let hairspray become you best friend
Lightly spray some hairspray onto your brush and run it over your hair from root to tip. This trick will set your style in place and lay down the unwanted flyaways. Bring the hairspray with you and use it through out the day for touch-ups. NATURIGIN offers a vegan all day hairspray made on certified organic argan oil and Vitamin E, which is perfect to combat static electricity and tame flyaways.

4. Moisturizing is the key!
Dry hair equals static hair! Make sure that your shampoo and conditioner are filled with moisturizing ingredients, that will keep you hair hydrated through Winter. Also argan oil will help lubricating your hair and prevent static electricity. Put a few drops on your hands and run it through damped hair.

5. Dry your hair with a T-shirt
Swap out your towel and use a plain cotton T-shirt on your hair after showering. The regular hair towel absorbs the moisture from your hair and scalp, when what you want to do is absorb the excess water without taking away the moisture that helps your hair from becoming static. The material of a T-shirt is smooth and lightweight enough to soak up some of the moisture, but without absorbing all the natural oils that your scalp and hair have produced.

DIY: Prepare Your Hair for Winter with Avocado Hair Masks

Winter is coming! This is not just a famous Game Of Thrones phrase – it’s the truth!

There are many upsides of Winter – the beautiful change in nature, lit fireplaces and hot chocolate with marshmallows, YUM! But along with all this come some downsides… During the Winter months, cold weather and dry indoor heat can be very harsh on your hair. The hair becomes frizzy, it becomes static and it can easily break.. But have no fear! In this blogpost you will find two of my favorite DIY hair masks with avocado that will help you prepare your hair for Winter.

But why avocado? You may ask. Avocados contain lots of vitamins, fat, protein and natural oils that can coat and soften the hair, and protect it from the cold weather. The oil of the avocado forms a protective barrier that keeps the hair hydrated, soft and flexible.

5 Hair Tricks You Didn’t Know

Hair Trick 1

#1: Spray your bobby pins for a better hold

Have you ever had problems with your bobby pins getting loose and sliding out? I have! A little hair trick to give your bobby pins a better hold is to give them a light spray of either hair spray or dry shampoo before tugging them in. Coating the pins with a layer of spray will give them an extra little grip that will make sure your hair style will last throughout the whole day. 

Put your bobby pins on a paper towel, spray them and let them dry for a couple of minutes. I promise you will feel the difference! 
This trick is especially helpful if you have fine, thin and straight hair.

#2: Change your pillowcase and reduce frizz and split ends

Most people sleep on a cotton pillow case, but have you ever considered switching to satin or silk? You should! Sleeping on a pillow case of satin or silk has so many benefits – both for your skin and hair. It reduces bed head, frizzy hair and split ends and it doesn’t rob your hair of moisture like cotton.

#3: Insert bobby pins with the wavy side down

Did you know that there is a right way, and therefore also a wrong way to use a bobby pin? For years I have been doing it wrong! The bobby pin is probably the simplest hair accessory but still most girls don’t know how to use it properly. Actually, the bobby pin is designed to have the wavy side down and the flat side up. While the wavy side graps the hair, the flat side holds it down. Makes quite good sense, right?

#4: Tame fly-aways with hairspray and a toothbrush

I am sure we all have had our battles with unwanted fly-aways while doing our hair. They stick out in ridiculous directions and seem impossible to tame. But have no fear! Buy a cheap tooth brush and spray it with a little hairspray and brush your fly-aways into the right place. Because the toothbrush has such fine bristles, it is perfect to comb away the tiniest of hairs that a regular hairbrush might miss.

#5: Dry your hair with a T-shirt and avoid frizz

Having trouble with frizzy hair after showing? Swap out your towel and use a plain cotton T-shirt to dry your hair after showering. Yup, it’s that simple! When your hair is wet it is in a very soft and weak state. By using a regular towel to dry your hair, the grooves of the towel will ruffle the cuticle of our hair. The towel absorbs the moisture from your hair and scalp, when what you want to do is absorb the excess water without taking away the moisture that helps your hair from becoming frizzy.

The material of T-shirt is smooth and is lightweight enough to soak up some of the moisture, without absorbing all the natural oils that our scalp and hair have produced. The next time you finish washing your hair, wrap it up in a clean T-shirt for 5 – 10 minutes. Your hair will feel smoother and it will dry faster.
