How to Get Static Out of Your Hair

By Andrew Smith

Static in your hair can cause extreme "fly-aways" in your hairstyle. If the static is at its worse, some strands of hair may defy gravity and stand up straight. This can be both annoying and distracting to you as well as those around you. Trying to simply pat your hair down using your hands will not be enough to remove this static. A combination of techniques and the right product will allow you to get static out of your hair.

Step 1

Remove any item of clothing, such as a winter coat or a heavy sweater, that may be causing your static. These articles of clothing typically create static in the hair from simple movement.

Step 2

Brush your hair from root to tip to remove any knots. You may find that this will temporarily increase the static, but it is important to remove any tangles in order to fully get ride of the static.

Step 3

Pump a nickel sized amount of anti-frizz moisturizing cream into your hands.

Step 4

Rub your hands together to completely coat your hands with the product.

Step 5

Work the product through your hair from root to tip.

Step 6

Apply additional cream if necessary. You will find that your hair will absorb the cream as it reduces static.

Step 7

Brush your hair lightly to evenly distribute the product. If you find that this reactivates any static, reapply a small amount of cream.
