    Move to Florida. It's so humid here, there is zero static electricity in the air.
    Louisiana will work for you too.

You can use 100% Almond oil from any store but regular grocery stores probably charge a mighty dollar for it. Asian stores would carry several brands with more affordable products - I look for one with no or less additives.
    Ah, this sounds like an interesting idea.

    I actually went out and bought some oily hair product stuff after I saw some responses to this post. It makes sense that oil would work to alleviate the effects of static, but I didn't know if it would make my hair too greasy. It seems to be doing alright though.

    I don't know how this thread was reawakened from almost two months ago. Odd...

    And I can hardly stand the humidity here in Georgia. I doubt I'd have any luck in the bayou. I really only experience static hair in the winter, but it's been better this past month, as it won't stop fucking raining here.

    I have very fine hair and the best advice I ever received was to stop using shampoo and only use conditioner instead.

    And I find a good conditioner is better than a cheaper conditioner.

    And after I wash my hair in conditioner, I am told my hair looks wonderful.
