Count on us to help you deal with those flyways, with our expert-recommended tips. Before we get down to knowing how to tame these loose bits of hair strands that wreak havoc on our hairstyles, let us understand how they come into being. Flyaway hair can occur due to various reasons that could have been in our control. Here are some of them:

  • Dry Climate:

It is a contributing factor to flyaway. The hair loses moisture and turns light, hence becoming more susceptible to damage. This leads to unclaimed strands that worry you as flyaways.

  • Static:

The Static charge could be a reason if you get flyaways only during the winter. The charge in your hair due to constant rubbing and movement makes the small strands stand out, ruining your perfect hairstyle.

  • Lack of nutrients:

Without nutrition, your hair is left without much strength to fight the weather, protect it from external factors such as sun rays, wind, dust. Your hair starts to have secluded hair strands flying out of control due to a lack of strength to withstand all of these.

  • Bad Hair Care Regime:

Often or not, we tend to switch between hair care regimes. Some of these turn out to be cathartic, giving our hair the worst nightmare of irreversible damage. The early symptoms of this damage can be seen as flyaway hair.

  • Humidity:

In humid climate, the hair gets negative electrostatically charged. This makes the hair repel each other leading to frizz and flyaways.


Fret not! No matter what the reason might be behind your flyaway hair, Pantene’s got you covered with our list of expert-recommended instant hacks and permanent solutions. Give our list a read and let’s reduce flyaways together.

  • Cut down on heat styling:

Using cloth elastic bands could help reduce strain on your hair.

  • Avoid using a towel to dry your hair:

Towel stands to be the classic solution to drying the hair, but is it the best way? The fibers of many towels are very harsh on our hair.

Its gentle fabric will do you no harm and also provide you favourable results.

  • A Regular Hair Care Routine:

If you have frizzy hair It becomes very important for you to have a regular hair care routine. Shampoo regularly if you have very oily and greasy hair, but for others doing it every 2 or 3 days could work very well.
