You don't want anything to ruin a perfectly coiled hair bun or an adorable curly 'do. But for women with parched, brittle tresses, flyaways can become a problem. These tiny wisps of rogue hairs make your style look messy. Hair cuticle damage and static electricity are to blame. Thankfully, by overhauling your daily hair-care routine and taking a few extra steps during the styling process, you can keep flyaway hair to a minimum.

Hair Care Tips

Step 1

Use a silicone-based conditioner each time after shampooing to smooth and hydrate hair cuticles and reduce flyaways.

Step 2

Let fresh-washed hair dry naturally after squeezing excess water off using a towel. Hair dryers can cause hair to dry out and become damaged. If you must blow-dry, use the warm, not hot, setting to minimize hair damage.

Step 3

Brush your hair with a natural-bristle brush (not synthetic) to reduce hair breakage and the resulting short flyaway hairs.

Hair Styling Tips

Step 1

Distribute leave-in conditioner in clean, dry hair using your fingertips. Concentrate on the ends of the hair to maximum hair health.

Step 2

Spray your hair brush with an antistatic spray or smooth your hair down using a clean, fresh clothing dryer sheet.

Step 3

Use a dab of hair shine serum on the end of a new toothbrush to smooth flyaway hairs after you've completed your hairstyle for the day.
