I get static so bad that I vannot comb my hair a my skin becomes staticky and very dry

The static in your body is related to your surroundings and the clothes you are wearing whether they conduct electricity or not. Does anyone else in the house / place complain of this? Does it happen to you everywhere regardless of place :?:

Dear Liz,

I think that if you are combing you hair with a plastic comb or other brushes, try combing it with a comb made of wood which will not cause any static what so ever and will improve your hair's dryness.

Thank you very much for using our website http://doctorslounge. com and I hope that this information helped.
