Kiss Static Hair Goodbye With these Innovative Tips

Never contend with dreaded static again

"Metal combs won't stir up the electrons as much as plastic will."
You know the feeling; you pull a sweater over your head and your hair instantly goes from being un-animated and flat to taking on a life of its own.

Like dried out skin and chapped lips, static is one of banes of our winter beauty existence. But, it doesn't have to be.

The folks at HuffPo have come up with nine nifty anti-static tactics that work wonders.

Here are our favorites for counteracting those pesky, positively charged electrons that plague our winter 'dos.

Don't use a plastic comb: Metal combs won't stir up the electrons as much as plastic will. (Hint: spritz some hairspray onto your comb to help tame flyaways.)

Use an ionic blow dryer: "These special blow dryers supposedly emit negatively-charged ions that attach themselves to the positively-charged hair for a neutralizing effect. The ionic molecules are also supposed to break down the water molecule rather than evaporate it, without stripping your hair of its moisture -- and the less dried out your hair, the less static."

Try Static-Guard: It works on your clothes, why not your hair? Spray some into your palms, then smooth over hair.

Dryer sheets do the job : Take a sheet and run it over your entire head for maximum benefit. You can also rub one on your pillow before going to bed to help prevent static in the morning.

Water works: When all else fails, good old water will do the trick -- it may mess with your hairstyle but it will stop the static.
