  • Static guard – if you’re having trouble finding a good anti-static brush or if you simply prefer to stick with your regular hair brush, use Static Guard instead. Just spritz on a little bit on your hair before you start brushing it and you’ll be able to avoid flyaway hairs due to static. You can also spray this on your bonnets, beanies, scarves and other things that come in contact with your hair and produces static. Remember to use only a little bit at a time as too much can make your hair greasy and limp.



  • Use a toothbrush to comb flyaway hair – it may sound weird to use a toothbrush on your hair when you have a hairbrush but the small and compact bristles on a toothbrush is the perfect size to tame those baby flyaway hairs. Lightly mist a toothbrush with some hair spray and slick back flyaway hair. You can also use a serum instead of hairspray, it will do the trick just as well.

  • Take advantage of hair accessories – hair accessories don’t only make your hair look prettier, they can also help hide stubborn flyaway hair. Wear a gorgeous headband to slick flyaway hair back. You can sport this look on its own or use it to dress up a plain bun or ponytail. Choose a headband that’s snug enough to not fall back. Otherwise, it would be useless in helping with flyaway hair.
