Static Electricity shutting off aids?

I have long hair. Frequently when I push my hair behind my ears or run my fingers through it my hearing aids shut off. Is this from static? IS there anything I can do about it? This occurs less frequently when I use the Ear Gear covers but I don’t paticularly like wearing them becaue they make my ears stick out and my hearing aids mor noticeable.

Are you using Naidas by any chance??? Possibly with Rayovac batteries?
