Advice needed

This may seem really unimportant in the greater scheme of things, but I’m at a loss as to what to do.

This winter, I have been dealing with a lot of static electricity in my hair – like nothing I have ever seen before.  It’s like my hair has a life of its own and floating all over is part of its agenda.

I’ve tried using hydrating shampoos and conditioners and it has helped some, but it is driving my up the wall.

Got any suggestions?  I’d like to keep it at the slightly-longer-than-shoulder length it is now, but if I can’t get this issue under control, I’m going to whack it off.

    Humidify your environment-not your hair. Use hairspray. Change the kind of shoes you wear-something that won’t encourage static. Wait for warmer weather…

    I have changed to Wen cleansing conditioner. I buy mine from QVC but is available from other sources. To try it you can buy cheaper brands like Hair One at Sally’s. My beautician recommend I use this and has made a dramatic difference in my hair. No stripping of my natural oils each time I “shampoo” it. I only have to use one pump, rinse, add another pump and let sit while I shower and then rinse. Just can’t describe the difference in hair quality.

    I have very long hair (waist length), that is fine and wavy. I live in Central Oregon where it’s not very humid most of the time. I just put my hair up… It’s annoying to have your hair crackling around your shoulders and face, but I won’t cut my hair again (except for trims). I have been known to put apricot kernel or avocado oil on it, but those do make it slightly oily, like I haven’t washed it for a week…

    Me too. I asked my hairdresser and he said that the dryer sheets are effective – rub them over my hair. I didn’t find that worked. What I do now is to lightly wet the palms of my hands and then wipe them onto my hair, then brush. I do it as often as I get the fly aways and it’s been working.

    YUP it’s been one of those winters! My biggest problem is all the shocks I end up giving the poor cat, he is beginning to avoid me! I put water in every vase and vessel I own and it has helped a lot. I also ended up wearing my Keds instead of shoes or slippers indoors. We both just need to UP the humidity.
