It is due to the transfer of electrons between two objectsYour hair is static as the brush and your hair are rubbing together. When they rub together, it causes the electrons to transfer from one object (your hair) to the other object (the hairbrush). The process of the transfer of the electrons causes your hair to build up of electric charge, leaving your hair to become static. Having dry hair is the perfect environment for static electricity to build up as their is a lack of moisture.
Having static hair isn’t a great look. So what can we do to prevent our hair becoming static when we brush it?
- Use hair oils (as we know now that the perfect environment for static hair is a dry environment, so adding hair oils will help to moisturise your hair).
My go to, is the moroccan oil treatment. I use this oil before drying my hair and adding it just to the ends when I have finished drying it. I have used this oil for over 3 years now, and it is my favourite hair oil not forgetting that it smells absolutely delicious!
- Use a leave-in conditioner (this will help to keep your hair moisturised making it less dry)
For a leave in conditioner which isn’t too heavy, I like to use this Pureology spray. Not only does it help to conditioner my hair but also helps to protect my hair against heat and colour fading.
- Use an ionic hair dryer (ionic hair dryers work to emit negative ions to help separate water molecules. The ionic hair dryer will also help to dry your hair faster and reduce heat damage, which could leave to dryer and damaged hair)
- Use a hair dryer sheet (using a sheet over your hair or hairbrush will help to prevent static strands. Dryer sheets are loaded with ingredients that neutralise electrons in your hair, eliminating static.)
Take your time when doing your hair. What I mean by that is, take care of your hair. Having a good hair routine is key, and do not forget that it takes time. Begin looking after your hair now, and before you know it, your hair will be looking much healthier.
That is all for now, take care and stay safe!
