Title: Flyaways?
Post by arwen on Jan 20th, 2005 at 9:58pm
So I guess there's not a whole lot of strickly straight hair discussion going on? lol. My problem is that in the winter, my hair tends to go all flyaway-like on me, and i don't like gels, i think they tend to cause more frizz. i tried using some of the John Frieda smoothing serum stuff, but either i wasn't using it properly, or it just doesnt work for my hair. Any suggestions from anyone? Anyone at all? lol Thanks any comments helpful or not are most appreciated hehe

Have you tried using a bit of your conditioner as a leave in?  Jojoba oil also works for my flyaways.  When I want more control on an updo, I will use aloe vera gel.

Some people have said that spritzing their hair with distilled water that has a bit of essential oil dispersed in it works for static and fly aways.

Good luck!

I've found that often it's enough to work through some jojoba, so long as I've used a good conditioner.

When it's coldest and dryest, though, I also work through a fair amount of cocoa butter. It makes my hair feel thick, and there's never a bit of static.

I have bad flyaways that frame my hair at the hairline and they are thin whispy babyhair type flyawayas and REALLY ANNOYING!  recently I put a tiny tiny bit of EVOO in my hair when it was dry and then braided it and then raked the flyaway area lightly with my fingernails to try to get the little flyaways mixed in with the rest of the hair on my head and they stayed there! it was pretty amazing considering NTOHING makes them stay down, its amazing how a think whispy flyaway can stand STRAIGHT up against gels and creams of all kind!  so yeah, try oils, but only a tiny bit!
