The One Thing To Avoid Static Hair & Ensure Your Tresses Are Tamed — PHOTOS

Is there anything more ugh-inducing than throwing on a cute knit sweater and then suddenly finding your hairstyle has turned into a static mess? If you've been struggling with frizzy strands this winter, make sure you're not forgetting the one thing to avoid static hair. Farewell to looking like you're walking around with a science fair project on your head!

Static happens when your hair is dried out and exposed to electrical charges, so to avoid static, the one thing you've absolutely got to do is consistently use a hydrating conditioner. Self explained, "The more porous and damaged your hair is the drier it will be and the more likely that static charge will build up ... Static electricity is pretty much unavoidable in the winter and your best bet in fighting flyaway is to keep hair healthy and moisturized. Even if you have flat, fine hair remember to keep those ends conditioned!" The Stir added using a silicon-based conditioner could be most effective, as "the silicone will coat your hair strands and neutralize electric charge."

Below are several conditioners known to be extra moisturizing and hydrating, so scroll to find the right one for your hair type and kiss static goodbye this winter.
