6. Reduce heat damage
Heat styling is useful for sealing cuticles and preventing flyaway hairs, but used excessively it also creates more flyaways. If you must use curling irons or a blow dryer when you get your hair wet, prep with a heat shield for hair to protect your strands. Follow up with an anti-frizz oil right away to help re-infuse some much-needed moisture into your hair.
7. Smooth with a lightweight serum
Hair serums are an instant fix to most hair problems, flyaways included. An anti-frizz serum can help you in reducing tangles and hiding visible damage like split ends.
8. Use dryer sheets to avoid static
Wondering how to get rid of static hair quickly? Try the dryer-sheet hack. Just rub a dryer sheet over the flyaway hairs, brush, and voila! Smoother strands!
9. Get a haircut
Split ends and damaged hair cause flyaways. Trimming your hair is the best way to deal with this. Regular trims prevent breakage and encourage hair growth. Trim half an inch off the bottom of your hair every four to eight weeks.
10. Braid your hair
If you can’t tame your flyaways, hide them with braided hairstyles. In addition to braids being easy hairstyles for windy days, they work for any occasion and disguise unruly flyaway hairs. When braiding your hair spritz your palm with a small amount of hairspray and run it over the surface of your hair. This will smooth any strands sticking out, without making your hair sticky.
11. Sleep on a silk pillowcase
Sleeping on a silk pillowcase or wrapping your hair in a silk head scarf before bed reduces the friction between your strands and your pillowcase. This stops your strands from becoming frizzy and unruly while you sleep, so you’ll wake up with smoother and more manageable hair.
12. Go with it
There’s something so French girl chic about textured wispy hairs sticking out around a classic ponytail or ballerina bun. If you're dealing with baby flyaways around the hairline, try embracing it. Hairstyles like a top knot, messy pony, and beachy waves work well with wisps, so let a few flyaways do their thing!
