For example, rubbing a balloon on the hair it makes it load electricity and creates an electrostatic force. The area rubbed allows the newly loaded object to remain clinging to objects and even attract the hair in its electromagnetic field.
The hair are more electrically charged in winter and dry weatherDuring very dry weather like winter, insulating properties of air stop the evacuation into the soil electrical charges created by friction. This dry air can be explained by the fact that the volume of air is reduced when the temperature is cold while it expands when the temperature is hot. In addition, conventional heating such as electric baseboard even further drying the air in a building and thus increase the drying of the scalp.
