My hair is electrified, what should I do? Many people have asked themselves this question. We all noticed in ourselves, especially in winter, that hair tends to become electrified. This is a very unpleasant phenomenon, both psychologically and aesthetically.
Causes of hair electrification
It’s very simple: when the hair touches a hat, outerwear (coats, down jackets), a sweater or jacket, they rub against each other and accumulate electricity as they have excellent electrical conductivity. And, in addition to the natural property of electrical conductivity, in winter our hair receives an additional charge of stress. The air dried out by the central heating also greatly affects.
If the hair is electrified in winter, then you need to reconsider several points that are responsible for their health. After all, dry, brittle curls that lack moisture are especially susceptible to this.
How to choose the right care
We are well aware of the features of our own hair and carry out all the points of care procedures. Nevertheless, the hair still continues to split, break, and, as a result, become even more electrified. It is important to choose the care that is right for you. Pay attention to the condition of the scalp — if it differs from the condition of your hair, then you need extra care for each part. For example, if the skin releases a lot of sebum and the hair is dry, then you need to choose 2 products — for the scalp (scrubs with fine abrasive particles, essential oils that can be added to shampoo, special therapeutic shampoos, skin masks, ampoules) and for hair (moisturizing shampoos, conditioners and masks).
A great option in this case is to get the Schwarzkopf Professional Oil Ultime Oil-In-Scrub Scalp Scrub with lotus flower.
This is a real find for all girls who carefully monitor the health of their hair. The tool will help to effectively cleanse the scalp of impurities and prepare it for subsequent care stages.
It has a light texture that spreads easily over the skin. Enriched with argan shell particles, lotus extract and natural oils, the formula perfectly removes impurities and excess sebum, gently exfoliates dead skin particles, and also nourishes and moisturizes it. Well, the delicious aroma of the scrub will help you relax and restore inner harmony.
Regarding shampoos that will help in solving the problem of electrification, we advise you to pay attention to Chi Argan Oil Shampoo Plus Moringa Oil Nourishing Hair Shampoo.

In the normal state, the outer layer of the hair, the cuticle, is a keratin scales held together by lipid (fat) layers. When these layers are destroyed, the scales open slightly. Such hair is not able to retain water. They are the most electrified. In order to prevent and eliminate electrification, you need to give your hair water and restore the ability to retain this water. Products with panthenol, urea, plant extracts (balanites, aloe vera, geranium) and lipids (fatty acids, phospholipids, ceramides) are suitable here. The highest amount of lipids is found in vegetable oils. Vegetable waxes (jojoba, candelilla) will also help retain moisture in the hair. They form a protective film on the surface, which prevents the hair from losing water. In addition, they add shine to the hair. Leave-in products with a high silicone content will give a temporary visual effect, but will not solve the problem. Therefore, it is important that the composition of such products contains as many natural ingredients as possible.
One such product is La Biosthetique Hydrating SPA Fluid Leave-In Moisturizing Emulsion.
Moisturizing protective emulsion designed specifically for long hair. It effectively fights a common problem — excessive dryness of curls, which leads to brittleness. This tool helps to retain the necessary moisture, creating an invisible film that covers each hair along its entire length. This reduces the negative impact of wind and sun, and other negative environmental factors.

How to deal with headwear and styling
It is important that the composition of the fabric from which your headdress is made contains natural materials (wool, angora, viscose). If you enter a room, a store, go down the subway, be sure to take off your hat. If you go outside in the cold — put on. In cold weather, it is very important to observe competent thermoregulation of the scalp, since the condition of the hair directly depends on this. Too strong secretion of the sebaceous glands or, conversely, blockage, dryness, dandruff are the first signs of impaired seboregulation.
Increase the time between shampooing, styling and going outside. So that small particles of moisture, freezing, do not destroy the structure of the hair, making it brittle. Replace hairspray with caring products with a styling effect. If blow-drying your hair, be sure to use a heat protectant.

What vitamins do hair need in winter
We all know perfectly well that in winter the body is very short of vitamins and minerals to maintain health. In winter, it is advisable to eat 3-5 fruits daily, and for lunch and dinner, add vegetable salads with olive, sesame, and peanut oils. They contain all the necessary vitamins and essential omega 3-6-9. The main minerals and vitamins that directly affect the strength, shine, elasticity of the hair, as well as healthy sebum regulation of the scalp are zinc, selenium, vitamins B, A, E, as well as hyaluronic acid and biotin. Every season it is desirable to carry out a monthly course of vitamin therapy, and if you have not done this, then now is the time to replenish the body with the necessary substances in preventive dosages.
Doctor’s Best Fully Active B Complex will help you replenish your vitamin supply.
B vitamins play an important role in cellular metabolism. Once this group was considered one vitamin. Later studies showed that they are separate constituents that often coexist in the same products. Supplements containing all eight B vitamins (thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, pyridoxine, cobalamin, biotin, folate, pantothenic acid) are called vitamin B complex.
Vitamins of this group are involved in many chemical and biological functions of the body. The main epicenters of exposure are the brain, nervous and cardiovascular systems. Vitamin B12 is one of the cofactors that is responsible for the production of DNA. Also in the company with vitamins B6 and B1, it ensures the health of the heart and, accordingly, blood vessels, normalizes sleep. Folic acid and vitamin B6 are responsible for the emotional background, as they increase the production of serotonin. Biotin takes an active part in the processes of protein, fat and carbohydrate metabolism, which helps to activate the action of vitamin C in the body. Taking this complex, you can quickly fill the vitamin gaps in the body and significantly improve overall well-being.
How to solve the problem of dry indoor air
When batteries and air conditioners are in full swing, it is important to help your body and try to moisturize it from all sides. If there is no way to put a humidifier at work, then drink more water, apply thermal water to your hair and skin (but not before going outside). At home, it is advisable to put a humidifier in the bedroom, as well as wet cleaning every week. The air will become fresher, and the hair and skin will receive moisture. To reduce the electrification of hair, you must first reduce their dryness. We recommend using a moisturizing spray when you comb your hair, and also include oils or an antistatic spray in your care.
