How Do You Stop Static Hair?

To remove static electricity from hair, wash and condition the hair, blow dry it, apply refreshing spray and hairspray, and treat mid-day static with a dryer sheet. This 45-minute process requires hydrating shampoo and conditioner, a towel, an ionic blow dryer, a non-plastic comb, dryer sheets, refreshing spray and hairspray.

  1. Wash and condition the hair

    Wash the hair with a nourishing, hydrating shampoo. Leave it on the hair for several minutes, rinse it out, and soak the hair with a hydrating leave-in conditioner. Squeeze out excess conditioner, and then wrap the hair in a towel.

  2. Dry the hair with an ionic dryer

    Dry the hair with an ionic blow dryer. Run a non-plastic comb through the hair as you dry it. Stop drying when the hair is still slightly damp.

  3. Refresh the ends

    Spray the ends of the hair with an oil-based refreshing spray, and distribute the product with a comb.

  4. Apply hairspray

    Mist a comb with hairspray, and pull it through the dried hair. Re-wet the comb several times if the hair is very long or coarse.

  5. Treat static flare-ups with a dryer sheet

    To banish mid-day static, fold a dryer sheet in half, place it against the head, and smooth it over the hair.
