To be static, or not to be static: That is the question. Hair color doesn't cause static electricity. Only the hair that cause the static electricity, by rubbing the balloon to your hair, which is friction. But if you have blond or red hair with thin hair, it is static electricity. Not most blonds have the same hair texture. By the reason of genetics, age, and other factors involve the hair texture. Weather could cause the static build up in the winter with dry wind as result a of electrons charged up. Can I have drink of water now?
