How to Help Static Hair This Winter How to Help Static Hair This Winter How to Help Static Hair This Winter

One of the most annoying side effects of winter would have to be static hair. You know what we’re talking about: hair that sticks up in every which way. So, is there anything you can do to help smooth down static hair this season? It turns out there are quite a few strategies to help static hair. Keep reading for our best static hair product recommendations (including hair serum and hair spray), hairstyles to hide static hair (like our favorite braided updo), and more winter hair care advice.

Static Hair Tip #1: Use a Smoothing System of Shampoo and Conditioner

If you’re experiencing static hair this winter, then it could be time to switch up your hair care routine. Try using a smoothing system of shampoo and conditioner, like the L’Oréal Paris EverPure Frizz-Defy Shampoo and L’Oréal Paris EverPure Frizz-Defy Conditioner. Humidity, wind, and hair lacking conditioning can cause frizzy hair and be difficult to manage. This system of shampoo and conditioner helps smooth, tame, and resist humidity.

Editor’s tip: When you’re in the shower, turn down the dial and wash your hair in lukewarm water instead of super-hot H20, which can strip your strands of essential moisture, leaving it feeling drier and looking duller.

Static Hair Tip #2: Apply Hair Serum to Tame Flyaways

Beyond shampoo and conditioner, a hair serum can also help static hair. Use the L’Oréal Paris EverSleek Frizz Finish Oil-in-Serum with the above pair of shampoo and conditioner. This hair serum instantly polishes and smooths frizz, strand-by-strand, while creating a humidity barrier to help block out frizz and lock in shine. After shampooing and conditioning, apply 1-2 pumps to damp hair and distribute evenly, then style as usual. You can also use a small amount on dry hair to smooth flyaways and add shine.

Static Hair Tip #3: Wear a Braided Updo

When all else fails, rocking a braided updo is a great way to hide static hair this winter. Our favorite? The crown braid. Not sure how to do this style? No worries! We’ve got a tutorial for you below.

Get the look by following these simple steps:

Step 1: Spray with dry shampoo. Dry shampoo can help add some texture to your hair. Spritz on the L’Oréal Paris Elvive Extraordinary Clay Dry Shampoo to your roots, then distribute through the lengths of your hair.

Step 2: Part your hair down the middle. Use your hands—not a comb—to create your part.

Step 3: Create a Dutch braid on each side of your part. To do Dutch braids, you have to weave over, not under. Once you’re done with each Dutch braid, secure with clear elastics.

Step 4: Tug at your braids. Create the appearance of thicker braids by gently tugging them.

Step 5: Pin your braids. Take your left braid and secure it a couple of centimeters back from your hairline with a bobby pin, then secure your right braid.

Step 6: Pull out a few strands. The crown braid is a total boho style—so pull out a few face-framing strands to complete this hairstyle. Static hair, what static hair?

Static Hair Tip #4: Finish with Hair Spray

One of the best static hair products you can use this winter is hair spray. Here’s an easy beauty hack: Spritz your comb with the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Weather Control Hairspray, then gently glide it through your hair. This hair spray features a lightweight mist that locks out humidity while locking in smooth style. You can also use this hairspray to help secure any hairstyle.
