Ah, hair static. The bane of our winter hair. All of a sudden, the cold weather commences, and our strands turns into some sort of science project. But speaking of science, what's the reasoning behind the static, anyway? Turns out when two unlike materials rub against each other, the electrons are transferred from one surface to another.

As a result, the hair starts spreading apart and getting that funky, staticky look. It seems impossible to tame those wild flyaways after throwing a sweater or a knit hat on, so what's a girl to do? Fear not, as we've rounded up some of the best tips for eliminating static for good so you can make it a thing of the past. To read our favourite expert tips, keep scrolling!
