One of the most annoying things that happen in winter is the state of static. It is just a game of physics! Electricity, atoms, positive ions, negative ions and all that jazz. It makes your hair get stuck in your lashes, ruins your lip gloss. All the time you spend styling your hair into something awesome gets ruined before you can capture your efforts in a selfie! As if the cold and dry winter wasn’t difficult enough to deal with, we need to combat science in order to have a good hair day.
Here are 6 ‘shockingly’ awesome life hacks that’ll keep static at bay during winters!
1. HOW OLD IS YOUR HAIR DRYER?
The arid dryness of winter isn’t just harsh on your skin. It affects your hair as well.
And, your old hair dryer adds to the misery. Years of using the same dryer increases its time to dry the air, hence increasing static as well as lack of moisture. Swap it for a new iconic model and give your hair the love it deserves! Learn winter haircare tips from experts at Pantene India.
2. HYDRATING SHOWERS
It is simple! More moisture = less static hair problems. So, all you need to do is switch to a shampoo which provides extra nourishment during the dry cold months of winter.

5. GO LINEN FOR THE SEASON
Winter is the time to bring out your knits, hats and scarves. But, did you know that synthetic fibers like nylon and polyester just end up amplifying static? Make it a practice to dry your hair with a linen cloth or a tee to calm your tresses and fight the static. A small tip: wear natural fabrics like wool, cotton and silk to tame the lower tresses.
6. CHOOSE THE RIGHT COMB OR BRUSH
Instead of using a plastic comb, try a metal comb. Plastic is a NO because it’s a non-conductive (ok, no more science). Whereas metal is a good conductor of electricity. It instantly discharges static. If you’re partial to brushes, use one with natural fibers. And, if you have strong feelings towards your regular ones, use the wide mouth ones.
See? Preventing and controlling static is easy enough with these hacks! Now have a happy hair day every day this winter with Pantene.
