Prevent static cling in your hair

Have you spent time styling your hair only to step outside and look like you stuck your finger in a light socket? Learn how to keep that beautiful hairstyle looking good!
You Will Need
* Light shampoo
* Deep conditioner
* An ionic ceramic hair dryer
* Hair oil
* Hair spray
* Hot oil treatment (optional)

Step 1: Use light shampoo
Use a shampoo without harsh chemicals. Some shampoos strip natural oils from your hair, contributing to static cling.

Step 2: Condition deeply
Condition your hair with a deep conditioner to retain moisture.

Perform a hot oil treatment. Purchase a kit from a drugstore and follow the directions.

Step 3: Do not over-dry
Avoid over-drying your hair. Use an ionic ceramic hair dryer designed to eliminate static without over-drying.

Use a regular hair dryer but leave your hair damp to prevent over-drying.

Step 4: Moisturize twice a week
Moisturize your hair twice a week with hair oil to prevent flyaways.

Step 5: Spray comb or brush with hairspray
Spray comb or brush with hairspray before use. This eliminates friction that causes hair to stand at attention.

Fact: You can rub a non-scented dryer sheet through your hair to remove static cling.
