Have the hair you've always wanted with the hair care and conditioning tips in this Howcast video series.

You Will Need

  • Light shampoo
  • Deep conditioner
  • An ionic ceramic hair dryer
  • Hair oil
  • Hair spray
  • Hot oil treatment (optional)

Steps

  1. Step 1

    Use light shampoo

    Use a shampoo without harsh chemicals. Some shampoos strip natural oils from your hair, contributing to static cling.

  2. Step 2

    Condition deeply

    Condition your hair with a deep conditioner to retain moisture.

  3. Perform a hot oil treatment. Purchase a kit from a drugstore and follow the directions.

  4. Step 3

    Do not over-dry

    Avoid over-drying your hair. Use an ionic ceramic hair dryer designed to eliminate static without over-drying.

  5. Use a regular hair dryer but leave your hair damp to prevent over-drying.

  6. Step 4

    Moisturize twice a week

    Moisturize your hair twice a week with hair oil to prevent flyaways.

  7. Step 5

    Spray comb or brush with hairspray

    Spray comb or brush with hairspray before use. This eliminates friction that causes hair to stand at attention.

  8. Did you know? You can rub a non-scented dryer sheet through your hair to remove static cling.
