How to get static out of a hair brush

Static in your hair brush can be a big problem. Static causes your hair to rise to meet your hair brush. Static conditions can be cured by using an ordinary dryer sheet in most cases. Static in your hair brush makes it very difficult to brush your hair. But here are some great tips on how to get static out of a hair brush. Also, be sure to check out my other article after reading this one on how do I stop my brush from being static.

To get static out of a hair brush rub a dryer sheet over your hair brush before use. You can also keep your combs and brushes wrapped up in dryer sheets during high static conditions like in Winter when there is not as much moisture in the air. If you can use a wide tooth comb instead of a brush. Brushes cause more static due to friction. Bristles are held closely together so electrical charges build up faster due to friction. A wide tooth comb the teeth are far enough apart thus reducing friction and static build up. If you do choose a brush, choose a brush made of natural bristles instead of nylon or plastic.

If you want to prevent static electricity from happening in the first place you can always try wrapping your brushes and combs in dryer sheets during high static times. Some stylist considers this technique a good static eliminator. Generally high static times are going to be in the middle of the winter. This is when there is lower humidity in the air. The indoor air is usually dry due to your heater keeping your house or work nice and cozy.

Static electricity

Also did you know that brushes generally carry more static than combs. So if you can you might try reaching for a comb in high static times. another good idea is to use a good detangler or leave in conditioner. This technique also helps elevate static in your hair.

How to get rid of static from a hair brush

Did you know many hair dressers have a water-filled spray bottle nearby. Water neutralizes the Static effect. Water molecules remove some of the charges so their effects on your hair and brush are less effective.

Simply spray the water onto your hair or brush. It doesn't need to be a lot, just a fine mist will do. You can then shake off excess from your brush and then brush your hair. And just like magic static is gone.

Also it's important to note dry conditions heighten the static effect. But you can change that by adjusting the atmosphere and the outcome will amaze you. Don't use too much heat or turn your heating unit too high. All that heat dries out the air out in your home. Humidifiers may also be used to improve moisture in your home. This will help free the friction from your hair brush.

An ionic hair dryer works uniquely by providing negative charged ions. This affects the polarities of the hair and hair-brush. Now they can not attract each other as normally they do.

To battle static try a Tourmaline hair dryer. This type of ionic hair dryer will help keeping your hair looking fabulous. A Tourmaline hair dryer will serve you well and definitely eliminate static conditions.

To help tame static you can also try using a lightweight leave-in-conditioner spray. Spray the conditioner directly on your brush before brushing your hair. Not only will this remove that static electricity from the brush but also helps to smooth down fly-away. Just make sure to clean your brush after use to get rid of any buildup. Clean your brush by removing any hair, and then gently rub the bristles with shampoo. Rinse and remove the shampoo using water and then let dry for a couple of hours before using.

How to get static out of your hair

This product works fantastic for both woman and men. The product really has no smell so it's good for either guys or girls. A small amount of Paul Mitchell Foaming Pommade - paid link goes a long way. Don't let the price scare you a 8.5 oz bottle will last a real long time. Plus this is a quality product in which I don't mind pay for. I like it because it is not greasy and leaves your hair soft and weightless. This is the perfect solution for those who have fly-away or lots of hair static. 

This is one of my favorite Paul Mitchell products for taming static conditions in you hair. The cream will help protect your hair. You can also use a wide tooth comb to help you distribute the product evenly through your hair. Comb your hair starting at the tips and work you way to the roots. If you have a lot of hair you can section you hair to make it easier. Use a finishing brush to brush through your hair. This will help smooth and polish your hair.

Depending on the length of your hair, for short hair use about the size of a dime. Squeeze into the palm of your hand and then rub your hands together. Using your hands, apply to the static parts of your hair. Wash your hands and then style as usual. 

For longer hair you will need to squeeze out a little more. Use about the size of a quarter and then apply. I personally use Paul Mitchell and this product works great!!!

This is a great product to control wavy, curly or static hair. The premium oils and natural extracts help smooth out your hair and provide a nice radiant shine. This products helps you obtain that smooth polished look. I personally fond the oils used to be very light and on greasy which I like. The product also has a nice conditioner for smooth and soften hair. It's also, Paraben, Gluten, Vegan and Color Safe. No strong scent!!!

What others are saying

This is a beautiful hair product. Nothing too thick or gunky just enough oomph for your hair to be stylised. It's also suggested for curly hair, but mine is pretty straight with lots of gray (which kind of takes on its own texture) so I find it great to style my hair. There is no heavy scent. If it came with a pump dispenser I would give it five stars. I have poor hands and it's a bit of a challenge getting the liquid out of the big bottle. Love the fact that after application my hair looks fine and does not feel crunchy or oily.

I love this product on my natural 4a hair. With little to no frizz, it gives beautiful shine. This product also helps certain styles to last for weeks or longer. A hair stylist had introduced me to this item a while back.

I've got really thick coily hair and this formula works great to separate my coils. I wash my hair then apply the cream to my hair. I cover my hair with a conditioner cap before I get dressed, then comb my hair with my finger and smooth the tamed coils. 

Love the stuff. I have been using it for years. You use only a very small amount, rub it in your hands and then hair. Gives the flyaways a wonderful shine & calms down.
