    Default Tesla is electric!

    ...that's fitting, isn't it?

    But seriously, I have some serious problems with static hair. And by that, I don't mean that my hair has zero acceleration and is in constant equilibrium with all other forces acting upon; quite the contrary, actually. I mean that it's fluffed up and CRAZY...to the point that I've been mistaken for Medusa from afar.

    My hair clings to walls, windows, the ceiling of my car, and if there's a balloon nearby, forgetaboutit! I can't touch people without shocking them (and no, not because of my goddess-like beauty but because I seem to be a particularly good reservoir for travelling electrons). I want to be able to get along with the people in this world, but I all I do is repel, repel, repel. My hair is insane, and I'm painful to touch. How much worse could it get?

    What do I do????! Perhaps I should just hook myself up to a lightbulb and call it a day?

    Does anybody have any advice for controlling static in the hair? It only happens in the winter, so obviously it's a dry weather thing, but what are some simple solutions?

    I have a similar problem with static electricity. I can't touch most door handles without shocking myself. I was in vegas the past week, touched some hanging metal beads [I like shiny things] and nearly blew myself off my feet. My sister said she saw sparks.

    I have narrowed it down to examining my clothing fiber and I noticed that I shuffle my feet a lot when I walk, so maybe that's the reason.

    Ohh, I hear you. I'm a foot shuffler.

    Do you have dry hair? Wavy or thin? Try shampooing less often or using a moisturizing shampoo, and that should help. You could go *really* alternative, and skip shampoo altogether, and just use a vinegar rinse, and that should totally take care of it.
    I think I think more than you think I think.

    My hair is naturally pretty curly, but I dry/straighten it usually. It's pretty thick too, and it's dry enough that I don't have to wash everyday. Do you think using some kind of leave-in product would help?

    Yes. I use a silicone spray made by Ion. It's specifically for using a hair straightner but I use it anytime I use a heat related item on my hair, plus the anti frizz shampoo and conditioner. It keeps the static down to a minimum. I get it at Sally's Beauty Supply.

    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    I've tried WEN and found that I was using nearly 40 or so pumps because of the length of my hair. I think WEN is really good for your hair; but, the cost expensive. I've heard of people essentially applying the same "conditioner" cleanse to the hair just with a cheaper conditioner (ie, suave, etc). NOt the shampoo, just the conditioner of whatever brand you choose. This is what I'm trying now. Hope this helps!

    I use natural oils on my scalp after shampooing and conditioning - almond in particular. Just a few drops on the scalp directly and a few on the hair itself help a lot. Almond oil also does not have the strong fragrance associated with coconut oil which is pretty commonly used as well. 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.
