In winter, static electricity causes our hair to see all the colors, especially if it is fine and straight. What to do to counter the phenomenon? We asked Gianni Coppa, founding hairdresser of the R’Factory salon, to give us his expert tip.
How to avoid electric hair? A question that currently bothers many women, is the phenomenon being more frequent in winter. In question, the dry air, the temperature differences between the ambient air and the scalp, but also the friction with certain key textiles of the cold season, such as the wool of the scarf or the hat.
The hair, in which electrical charges accumulate, then repel each other and it becomes difficult to keep them in place. Bad news for those with fine or straight hair: they are particularly prone to static electricity. However, there is a small natural trick to prevent the phenomenon.
According to Gianni Coppa, a founding hairdresser of the Parisian salon R'Factory, our brushes, and combs made of synthetic material, like plastic, promote electric hair. The right option? Swap them for more natural styling tools. “We prefer materials such as boar bristles or bamboo, which absorb this electrical effect. You can also simply run your hand through the hair to cancel out the static electricity.”
