Fabric softener and static sprays have their place, but the number one thing you can do to prevent that cling that makes your clothing creep and your hair stick up? Change your shoes.
Rubber-soled shoes are the primary culprit for static—they actually help create it. Because rubber poorly conducts electricity, it stores up in your soles. Switching to leather soles will keep the electricity moving through you, so it doesn’t build up as much and can drastically reduce the amount of winter’s static cling and flyaway hairs.
