Beauty Hack: Static Hair

(Image: The Stir)

You might be noticing that your hair might have become some what out of control and static recently. Now matter what you do, you can't seem to get it under control. But why is this happening? Well, it's down to the weather. Yes, our wonderful British weather. You've got to just love it, don't you?

If you've got long, luscious locks, then you're prone to having static hair because in the cold months there is lack of moisture in the air. And moisture is conductive for volume, movement and curls - without moisture, your hair will not be on fleek. *cries*

Are you wearing big winter wooly coats and many, many layers? Yep, that's not helping either. The more layers you have on, the more heat is generated resulting in more fly-aways.

Do you have the heating blasting all day both at work and home? That's not doing anything for you either.

So how do you fix this? Well, thankfully, the beauty gods have answers for everything:

Conditioner - moisturising conditioner and/or leave-in conditioner will do just the trick. But don't go applying all over the head - stick to the ends as this is where you're more prone to fly-aways.

Hair drying - don't over-dry your hair - the heat will do nothing for you. Leave hair a little bit damp - the less dried out, the better. Towel drying? How about try drying your hair with a cotton T-shirt? A cotton T-shirt is less abrasive and absorbs excess water, without taking away most of the moisture that a towel does.

Braids - a simple and easy way to control the frizz. Or if you're not skilled enough to French plait your hair, use bobby pins to pin down those loose ends.

There you go, some simple beauty hacks on how to control that winter static hair.
