12 Quick Fixes to Get Rid of Static Hair

Written by Dana Peterson

Do you have a problem with static, itching, or dandruff? If so, you’re not alone. Many people struggle with getting rid of dandruff and other skin problems that involve itchings, such as psoriasis or eczema. Here is a look at the 7 Quick Fixes to get rid of static hair that can help you relieve your symptoms.

There are two types of hair: natural and synthetic. The synthetic kind grows in clumps while the wild grows in tufts. The only difference between the two is that synthetic hair cannot be subjected to chemicals such as bleach. But both can be damaged and dry out when not taken care of properly. Dry, brittle hair is often the result of using harsh products and washing too frequently.

  1. Salicylic Acid
    This is an over the counter ingredient used for treating many scalp conditions, but particularly the pesky itch. It can be found in many medicated pads and shampoos. It helps soothe irritation on your scalp by killing bacteria. Try using a product that contains salicylic acid. You can also find salicylic acid gels in some speciality stores.
  2. Neem Oil
    This natural oil from the neem tree can work wonders for your hair. It works to get rid of dandruff, kill bacteria, and promote the growth of healthier hair. To use it, mix it with water and use as a rinse. It would help if you also combined it with Rosemary for even more excellent benefits.
  3. Aloe Vera
    This is another natural treatment that works well for dandruff and itching. You can find aloe vera sprays and creams in drugstores and online. Just rub it into your hair and scalp. Make sure you rinse thoroughly to prevent further irritation. Be careful, though, because aloe vera can burn if it gets into your eyes.
  4. Coconut Oil
    This is another of the quick fixes to get rid of dandruff. If you can’t find coconut oil in stores, you can quickly grow your own. All you need is a few coconuts and water. After soaking the coconuts overnight, you can use the resulting oil in your hair. It will give your hair a nice, natural shine while preventing further itching and flaking.
  5. Vicks Vaporub
    If you want to use something that is as all-natural as Vicks Vaporub, you can do so by making your own. All you need are some unflavored cough syrup and hot water. Mix them up until they become a thick paste. Then apply it to your hair and scalp. It will lighten your hair and help the circulation in your scalp.
  6. Tea Tree Oil
    This natural substance has proven healing powers for a lot of scalp issues. To make this work for your hair, you only need to mix a little bit with olive oil or butter. Rub it into your scalp and hair and rinse. This can be used every night before you go to bed to prevent dandruff from forming. You can also use it on damp hair to increase the strength of its natural healing properties.
  7. Rosemary oil
    You can also take advantage of Rosemary oil. Like coconut oil, Rosemary works well to unclog pores and unblock hair follicles. If you use it consistently and in high enough amounts, you may find that this helps you get rid of your problem. If you use pure Rosemary oil instead, however, you should watch out for irritating skin conditions.
  8. Egg mask
    To help you get rid of this problem. Apply an egg mask once or twice per week to your scalp. For best results, use an egg product that will penetrate your hair without making a mess on your head. You can even use egg white since it is lighter and gentler than regular eggs. To apply, wash your hair as usual and then use a thin metal comb to remove any tangles. Next, add some egg yolk to the hair and massage into your scalp until the yolk is incorporated into the scalp. Let this sit on your scalp for about fifteen minutes before rinsing. This should get rid of any debris and dirt in your hair that is causing it to become flaky and limp.
  9. Caster oil
    Another way to get rid of this problem is to take a hot oil treatment. Using Castor oil and then hot water will both improve circulation in the scalp and give your hair an added lift. Once you towel dry, blow-dry your hair to make sure all the oil is removed. Then, brush your hair until all the oil is gone. Finish off with a leave-in conditioner.
  10. Hair moisturizer
    Another quick fix to get rid of the problem is to apply hair moisturizer on the hair. This helps prevent the hair from becoming dry and damaged due to the static build-up. Many people use the towel to apply the moisturizer to their hair as this allows it to be absorbed more quickly by the hair.
  11. Anti-static gel or powder
    These gels are specially designed to attract and repel electricity. They work by covering the hair shaft and making it impossible for any static to build up against the hair. You can buy these products from any good health and beauty store. If you do not want to use gel, you can use baking soda or salt. All you need to do is mix the two to make a paste and apply to the hair.
  12. Hair professional stylist
    if you are not able to solve the problem with any of the above, then you need to hire a professional hairstylist who can remove the static from your hair permanently. However, it would help if you went to a good stylist who has experience in treating people with static sensitive hair. If possible, try to get the services of someone who specializes in treating hair problems.

Some people swear by coconut oil as an adequate remedy. If you want to try this method, apply coconut oil to your scalp and hair as often as you can. Coconut oil is a natural degreasing agent that can unclog pores and unblock hair follicles. For some people, this remedy can help with thinning hair, but coconut oil works well for everyone who is suffering from hair loss.
