Default Static Fly Away

It's winter, things are dry, do you guys have problems with this? The boys roll around like the little ruffians they are and sure it's pretty funny to see their hair standing on end, but do you use anything to help with static fly-away? Are there products made for that?

I have this pretty old bottle from earthbath, it's that horrible baby cherry scent, that is meant to 'refresh' in between baths. Yea, I really don't know what that means....

I found that Vellus Static Stabilizer works really well for my crew. Vellus Static Stabilizer 12oz/355ml Spray Pump

I use light olive oil(first rubbed on my palm, and couple light pass over the static fur in question.. or unscented lotion(light ones, again, first rubbed on my palm first..)

I use Garnier Fructis leave in conditioning cream. April recommended it and it works great. You can use it on dry hair, just a drop on your hands and lightly put on coat. It smells great too!

I am sure this will sound strange ... but, when Snowball was in the car the other day, his hair was really full of static ... to the point I could tell it was bothering him. (I read or heard someplace that they are sensitive to static electricity ... which makes sense to me, especially if you've ever felt electric static shocks).

Anyway, I didn't know what to do. So, I decided to try a little bit of my Oil Of Olay eye cream (that I always have in my purse) that I rubbed between my fingers ... and, then I lightly ran my fingers over his hair with it. Immediately the static was gone, and Snowball completely relaxed and enjoyed the rest of the car ride. What I love about the Oil of Olay eye cream is that it is not oily and has no scent. And, Snowball's hair looks great! Again, I just used a little dab rubbed between my fingers first. And, I only had to use it one time!

Here's another product from Bio Groom. I really like it! It's not heavy and really takes care of the static. I spray it on my comb and brush.

Two things I use: C Christensen's wooden pin brush (look at his web-site)--it is advertised against static, but I didn't know that when I first got it.
The other thing is emu oil---same as other stuff-rub tiny, tiny amount between palms & run hands through hair.
Anything nylon---carpet, clothes, etc. will make static worse---also drying air.
