Hair blow drying problem!

Does anyone else share this issue – I don’t go to the hairdressers regularly – only when I need highlights or a cut – due to the fact when my hair gets blowdried it is extremely static and fly away for days and I can’t wait to wash it at home?! Any remedies please – I went for my highlights and a cut yesterday and I can’t even touch my hair without this issue!

    you can ask them to use a product to prevent it
    ally.
  • Never tried it but the tumble dryer sheets are meant to be good, just smooth over your hair with one and the static is meant to go

    She said she could only apply serum - that doesn’t work !

    That’s a great idea - tomorrow on the shopping list!

    Some hairdressers split the costs out. So you can get your bits done, but without the blow dry.  I often do this, as I prefer to go home (wash again if it’s been coloured - but In the shower) & blow dry & straighten myself.

    I think that’s a great idea! I’ll check on that next time…

    I think you must have the only hairdresser who DOESN'T use products!

    I would second going home before the blow-dry.
