Alongside dry skin, one of the most annoying side effects of winter is static hair. You know what we’re talking about: hair that sticks up in every which way, made worse by cold-weather clothing like turtlenecks and hats. So, is there anything you can do as part of your hair care routine to help smooth down static this season? It turns out there are quite a few strategies to help tame static hair. Keep reading for our best static hair tips, product recommendations (including hair serum and hair spray), hairstyles to help hide static hair (like our favorite braided updo), and more winter hair care advice.
This may seem obvious, but that’s because it really works! When it comes to experiencing hair static, it’s important to remember that dry strands will only exacerbate static. During the winter months, when the outdoor and indoor air tends to be extra dry, try switching your shampoo and conditioner system to a hydrating formula that can help smooth out frizz. We love the L’Oréal Paris EverPure Frizz-Defy Shampoo and L’Oréal Paris EverPure Frizz-Defy Conditioner, which provide lasting humidity and frizz control and are also sulfate-free.
Editor’s tip: When you’re in the shower, turn down the dial and wash your hair in lukewarm water instead of super-hot H2O, which can strip your strands of essential moisture, leaving it feeling drier and looking duller.
Beyond shampoo and conditioner, a hair serum can also help tame static hair. Use the L’Oréal Paris EverSleek Frizz Finish Oil-in-Serum with the above shampoo and conditioner pairing. 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 one to two 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.
You already know that before you reach for your blow dryer, you need to protect your damp strands with a heat protectant, such as the L'Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Iron Straight Heatspray. But did you also know that using an ionic blow dryer can help reduce heat damage that can dry out your strands? It’s true! And like we mentioned before, dry strands = more static, so this is definitely the way to go.
When all else fails, rocking a braided updo is a great way to hide static hair this winter. Also, braids are super trendy at the moment! 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:
Dry shampoo can help add some texture to your hair. Spritz the L’Oréal Paris Elvive Extraordinary Clay Dry Shampoo onto your roots, then distribute through the lengths of your hair.
Use your hands—not a comb—to create 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.
Create the appearance of thicker braids by gently tugging at them.
Take your left braid and secure it a couple of centimeters back from your hairline with a bobby pin, then secure your right braid.
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?
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 comes out in a lightweight mist that locks out humidity while locking in your smooth style—or any hairstyle you choose to rock.
