I'm so sorry for the delay in our reply to your question!
Your environment may be so dry you may need to use a humidifier in your home, assuming you don't already have one. Another option would be to boil a large pan of water on the stove top daily, or use a vaporizer (like we use for colds) and just fill with water to run throughout the day/night. The other things you have tried are what I would have suggested also, but I think the reason you are having such difficulty is because you are 'fighting' the dry environment within your home, and losing the battle!
If you brush him, do not use a nylon brush - this will cause more static electricity in his coat. having your cat in the bathroom while you shower, would cut down on the static also.
I wish I could remember - but I saw an anti-static brush for pets. If I think of where that was I'll let you know!
Sorry I can't be of further assistance however I hope I have given you a few options to think about!
Greetings Lady Tee:
Use long, gentle strokes to brush your cat from the nose to the tip of the tail. Use a bristle brush. Remove as much dead and loose fur as possible. Rub your cat's coat with a nylon stocking to remove static electricity.
Hope this helps.
My very best to you and your cat.
Peace, Love & Happiness,
