Are you finding that the changing seasons are wreaking havoc on your freshly did ‘do’? Well you, my friend, need to get yourself to the laundry aisle, stat.
The laundry aisle? What the what?
I’m talking about dryer sheets. The very same ones you chuck in on laundry day. (Brittany from The Glow also has a frizzy hair hack. Watch in the video below. Post continues after video.)
Traditionally dryer sheets are used to fight static cling in the tumble dryer (and soften your clothes and towels leaving them smelling dee-lish.) I’ve found that they’re the perfect kryptonite to hair mayhem.
So why exactly do they work? Well, here’s the science bit. Dryer sheets contain positively charged ingredients which are released when they are met with heat and movement (like the inside of your washer). The ingredients bond to negatively charged surfaces and neutralise them, meaning no static in your clothes. That’s exactly why it works on your hair, too.
So next time you pull a jumper or scarf over your head and hear that familiar ‘crackle’ sound of static hair, grab a dryer sheet.
All you need to do is smooth it over your hair (works especially well if you’ve just straightened your hair) or you can rub the dryer sheet over your hairbrush and comb through as normal.
