How to determine the approach of winter? Just watch how your hair electrifies when it comes into contact with clothing. This phenomenon is associated with static electricity that occurs when various materials rub against each other. Hair, having a high electrical conductivity, becomes electrified when rubbed, such as when you put on a sweater or hat.

Dryness and thin hair make it more susceptible to electrification. High-quality care in the autumn-winter period includes not only moisturizing shampoo and conditioner, but also masks that restore strands, as well as leave-in products such as creams and sprays. To reduce electrification, avoid using plastic combs and prefer natural materials in clothing, such as cotton. Swap your plastic comb for a wooden comb to reduce static electricity in your hair.
