Static hair don't care?

We think not.

When cold weather starts leaving your strands dry and dull, static hair will most likely follow. Don't you worry, though—even celebs suffer from electrically charged tresses.

"To fight static, try using a heavy moisturizer or leave-in conditioner, like Aestelance Balm Leave In Conditioner, to coat your strands," said Marc Mena, who's worked with Mindy Kaling, Jordana Brewster and Mary Louise Parker. "Also, sleep with a humidifier during the winter. Not only is it great for your hair, but it keeps moisture in your skin, too."

"Using a lightweight leave-in conditioner on dry hair is an amazing fix," said stylist Tim Duenas. "It adds just enough moisture and hold to counteract the effect of the static. In a pinch, aerosol hairspray on a tissue can be used to smooth around the partings and the hairline. Apply hairspray directly to tissue until it is damp. Then smooth over the surface of the hair to calm down the fly-aways."
