Today’s edition of WFMW is another “backward” day in which we ask a question of readers rather than supplying our own tip.
My question of the day: how do you reduce static electricity, especially in hair?
I must be the most statically electrical person I know. Even taking my jacket off this morning jolted me. And with today being the first day we turned the heat on, it’s only going to get worse.
I know Shannon mentioned on a previous WFMW that she sprayed Static Guard on her brush and that helped. But I usually use a comb when styling my hair, and the Static Guard didn’t seem to do anything. I had also read that you could rub a dryer sheet over your hair. That actually does work. But then I smell like a dryer sheet. And it doesn’t last.
I know that spraying static guard on your legs can help keep your hemline from sticking, and even rubbing a bit of lotion on my legs will do the same. But, again, it doesn’t last long.
So, short of keeping a can of Static Cling or a dryer sheet on hand and applying several times a day, do you have any other ideas?
If you have a question you’d like some help with or you have some answers you might be able to give others, see today’s WFMW post at Rocks In My Dryer.
