Why Does Static Electricity Give Me Shocking Hair?

Dear Paul,

Why does my hair feel so dry in winter? The fly-aways and static electricity drive me crazy! Just putting on a sweater makes my hair look like I have sat in an electric chair. Help!!!

Hi, Exasperated Ellen!

I’ve always loved Vermont and, after reading your letter, I am so glad that I am hair-follicle-challenged and I wear a hat when I visit.

In all seriousness, many people who live in very cold winter climates experience your problem.

First of all, there is little humidity in winter and dryness is common in both skin and hair.

Added to that, everywhere we find comfort is heated, further reducing moisture levels. The result is chapped lips and split ends that seem to have a life of their own.

What your hair needs is moisture. My most basic shampoo and conditioner were designed with this in mind: hydration.

Paul Labrecque Daily Shampoo and Daily Condition build moisture levels in the hair, reducing the amounts of dryness that burdens it.

But, there are other things you can do that will help your situation.

Humidifier

First, sleep with a humidifier in your bedroom. A humidifier adds moisture into the entire room.

Next, take fabric softener sheets and tumble your sweaters in the dryer a few minutes before wearing this will reduce static electricity.

 

COLOR-FINISHFinally, dab of Silicone or Argan Oil will further reduce static. You’ll find both in our Color Finish Instant Repair Droplets.

 

Soon, you’ll be enjoying your winter wonderland only to face next month’s dilemma: What do I do with my hat hair?

Happy New Year Readers
