    Condition your hair after each time you wash it and do a weekly deep-conditioning treatment, like Paul Mitchell Super-Charged Moisturizer. Keeping your hair nourished and moisturized will help keep unwanted static away.

    Weigh down your hair a bit. Comb a dime-sized amount of hair gel through your hair while it's wet, or leave-in conditioner made specifically for dry hair.

    Get a humidifier for inside your home to prevent static hair. It will put moisture in the air of your home, which makes your hair swell with moisture, eliminating static.

    Change your wardrobe to fabrics that aren't very static-y, such as cotton, wool, and other products that are not made of synthetic fibers.

    Use jojoba oil in your hair after you wash it to restore its natural oil that may have been stripped by certain products or other causes.

    Dryer sheets work just as well on hair as they do clothes. Swipe the sheet on your hair. It would be wise to keep dryer sheets in your purse, car, or anywhere else in case of a static emergency!


  • Gel it. Condition it. Don't use products that harm or damage your hair.
  • Avoid hair products that contain a lot of alcohol, as this will dry your hair out more and make it more prone to static.
