How To Eliminate Hair Static

We know you weren’t going for the Albert Einstein look— blame the dry air for those flyaways. Outsmart ’em with this DIY fix from hairstylist Kattia Solano, owner of New York City’s Butterfly Studio: “Combine one cup of water with 12 drops of any face or essential oil in a spray bottle and mist your scarf and the inside of your hat before throwing them on. This brings just enough moisture to hair to prevent static.”

Layer Body Lotions

Get into the habit of slathering your skin with body lotion the moment you step out of the shower to help trap moisture. “Or try an in-shower moisturizer with glycerin that goes on dripping-wet skin,” says Dr. Harper (we like Curel Hydra Therapy Wet Skin Moisturizer). “On bitter-cold days, smooth on a thick cream that contains dimethicone, cocoa butter, or shea butter after your body lotion for maximum hydration.” Try Vaseline Intensive Care Cocoa Radiant Smoothing Body Butter ($6, drugstores).
