The A/C and the Power Steering are two sperate systems, however they are driven by the same belt, and it makes sence if the belt snaped and flew of the pulleys if would make noise on its way out, and with out a belt powering the a/c compressor and the power steering pump, you lose both. So first thing I'd do is check that belt, either its broken or maybe the tensioner gave out and it's slipping, either's gotta be the belt that's the only way those two systems could fail at the same time, that belt is the only thing they share.-Sean, Ford Mechanic

Why has your hair suddenly turned really static?

I'm not sure maybe there's a fan somewhere...maybe you stopped using conditioner. If you have rough, static hair, then use conditioner. I prefer Aussie conditioner but it's up to you.

You might need to flush your power steering fluid system.

The power steering system works on high pressure and at idle the pump does not turn fast enough to provide full assist. It requires a higher engine rpm.
