How to Control Hair Static

Step 1

Wash your tresses with a moisturizing shampoo and follow up with a conditioner. Every couple of days, deep condition your hair to increase moisture. Don't condition too much, or your hair will become limp and unmanageable.

Step 2

Pat, don't rub, your hair with a towel to remove excess water. Mist on a conditioning spray if you have thick hair. For fine hair, work an anti-frizz cream into the ends of your locks.

Step 3

Blow dry, if you must, with a tourmaline or ionic hair dryer, recommends Philip Kingsley, celebrity hair stylist, in an interview with "Cosmopolitan." These types of dryers don't rob your hair of moisture like traditional ones do.

Step 4

Stash an anti-static dryer sheet in your bag, and rub it over your hair if you start to have static problems.
