Dryer sheets aren’t just for imparting a refreshing scent to your delicates or controlling the static of your favorite skinny jeans … At least, not any more! If you are battling “staticky” strands, gently smooth a dryer sheet from root to tip. To play it safe, I prefer a more natural brand like Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day Dryer Sheets.
They come in a variety of tantalizing scents like lemon verbena, basil, geranium, and lavender. All of which smell absolutely divine! I love that these sheets, unlike the chemical-laden ones of more mainstream brands, contain a vegetable-derived softening agent and essential oils on a paper sheet. On top of this, 99% of the contents are naturally-derived ingredients. This product also has 35% post-consumer recycled packaging. A win-win for the environment AND your staticky hair!
Don’t have any dryer sheets laying around? Use some good old-fashioned H2O. Just lightly spritz the palms of your hands and then pass them over your hair. Since static is a result of increased friction and reduced moisture, the light addition of water should help fix those troublesome flyaways in a pinch!
