Have you had a bad hair day because it won't stay down after you have spent hours washing, drying and brushing?

A day or night out can turn into a complete nightmare if your hair doesn't go the way that you want it to and styling it makes no difference because static completely ruins your plans.

When you have no idea of what to do to prevent the "Einstein" look then here are a few hints at why it happens and what you can do to prevent static so that the hours you have spent on your hair can be worth while!

What Causes Static Hair?

Your hair is made up of atoms,electrons, protons and neutrons. If the atoms equal the same amount as the protons then your hair stays neutral but if the neutrons move from atom to atom they can sometimes become positively charged.

Dry hair after you have washed and blowed will also cause static as it attracts positive electric charges.

Dry air, dry hair, unnatural fabrics cause static along with the electricity we create when dragging our feet.

How Can I get rid of Static?

Use a moisturising shampoo and conditioner every time you wash your hair to prevent it from becoming dry. Try a leave - in conditioner and apply to the roots avoiding the scalp as your hair will appear oily.

Invest in a silicon serum for those bad static hair days. Apply a tiny drop onto your hair and spread it all over to stop frizz and static.

Use a natural brush rather than a synthetic one as this will also avoid static.

Avoid using hair dryers and let allow your hair to dry naturally.

Don't drag your feet on a carpet as this creates static electricity and your hair will show it.

Avoid knitted hats and rayon fabric.

Maintenance

Once you have avoided the rayon fabrics, kept your hair moisturised and you have bought a natural bristle brush than you need to maintain your hair to avoid the static problem returning.

Keep your moisturising shampoo and conditioner and ensure that you always carry around your anti - frizz serum for those unexpected moments.

Avoid blow drying your hair by giving yourself enough time to let it dry naturally.
