How To Beat the Static This Winter

Let’s face it, this is something that we all struggle with as the cooler weather rolls in. Hopefully with a few of these tips, we will no longer feel as though we are fighting a losing battle with static cling!

With the change of the season we do things to protect our bodies from the cold, so why aren’t we doing the same for our hair? Dry air = dry hair! As the cooler weather creeps upon us, it is important to start using a shampoo and conditioner that will hydrate your hair. This will not only make your hair nice and soft, but it will prevent dryness and make your hair less inviting to static electricity. One of my personal favorites is Hydrate shampoo and conditioner by Pureology. It makes my hair feel amazing without weighing it down. Adding a leave-in conditioner to your routine will give your hair an extra boost! I love It’s a 10! Love it! Use this as your secret weapon when battling with static!

Now it is time to comb through your hair. You want to avoid using plastic combs because they will only make your hair more staticy. Metal combs are good conductors and can not hold static electricity.

Now that you are ready to blow dry your hair it’s important to use something to protect your hair from the heat. Pureology Antisplit Cream is light weight and contains olive oil, which can be a great shield from the heat of the blow dryer. Using an ionic dryer is a huge help in preventing static! Ionic dryers are designed to bathe the users hair in negative ions which then attach to positively charged wet hair, locking in moister and neutralizes the electrical charge that causes static!

Last but not least, hairspray is going to be your best friend!! Spray a generous amount of hairspray onto your brush before drying your hair. This will help eliminate any leftover static in your hair! I personally like Flex Hairspray by Living Proof. First of all it smells awesome! It is super light weight and it doesn’t leave a funky residue in your hair after brushing it.

If you find throughout the day your hair begins to get staticy again, pat your hair with a dryer sheet, yes I said a dryer sheet. It will help eliminate those annoying flyaways and as a bonus, make your hair smell nice and fresh!

I hope that these tips are helpful and that you are able to have a static free winter!!

About RIAH Hair Studio

How We Came to Be . . . RIAH Hair Studio In May 2011, the former Salon Rage of Southampton, Pennsylvania relocated to a new space and changed their name to RIAH Hair Studio. RIAH? (pronounced 'Rye-Ah') Yes, it's "hair" spelled in reverse. Donna originally established Salon RAGE in March 1999. The salon delivered comprehensive hair services to the surrounding communities. As a seasoned beauty industry professional for over 29 years, Donna believed in education, not only for her stylists, but for her clients as well. This prompted her to open this first salon where she could foster such a dynamic environment. After 10+ years in Southampton and a desire to move closer to her family, in 2011 she relocated her business to Furlong, Pennsylvania in the heart of Bucks County. Re-emerging as RIAH Hair Studio, Donna has created a modern, contemporary, urban loft design experience located on the corner of York Rd & Edison-Furlong Roads, at the Village Corner in Buckingham Township. RIAH Hair Studio is an intimate boutique salon that is relaxing, comfortable & social, providing the "Right Attitude" from the team resulting in a "Great Experience" for their clients. It's the "RAGE" she carefully develops to this day. The stylists are continually certified in the latest hair techniques (color, cut, design, styles, tools, products, and fashion trends). Their clients, female, male, young or mature, enjoy the benefits of this extensive training. Additionally, they are taught how to re-create and maintain their RIAH experience until the next appointment. It makes RIAH Hair Studio stand out as one of the most referred-to salons in Bucks County! When we have the opportunity to see you in our new space, we'll provide you with the "Right Attitude & Great Experience" as we have always strived to do. Happy Day! from Donna & the Team at RIAH Hair Studio View all posts by RIAH Hair Studio
