Spray waxes/drying aid

This has been an interesting observation I’ve made recently. I live near building sites and the dust in the air around me is relatively bad.
I’ve been mainly using turtle wax dry and shine, once a month or so, and noticed after a wash and dry the car gets a fine layer of dust sitting on mainly the upward facing panels after like half an hour or so.
The other week I ran out of the dry and shine so only got the front of the car sprayed and rinsed, bonnet, wings and front bumper. I then got the megs hybrid ceramic wax and did the rest of the car.
The front of the car as always had that nice fine layer of dust but the rest was relatively dust free.
After about a week or so with rain and sleet and whatever came down from the skies, normal Scottish weather, the parts that had the megs was considerably cleaner than the parts coated with turtle wax.
This kinda says to me that the turtle wax is somehow a bit more statically charged and attracts a bit more dust and dirt.
Anyone else made similar observations with other type of spray waxes/drying aids?
Trying to figure out what products out there will repel dirt and dust better especially where I live. Half the time I’m washing the car cause the dust layer not because it’s filthy.

Some quick detailer and especially silicon based hydrophobic spray on Solutions wet coat,megs ceramic wax etc etc are dust magnets best/slickest quicker detailer l have ever used is Bouncers done n dusted good way of testing paint sickness after application is slowly rub yer back of yer hand over the panels or if yer really anal about it put a cloth on the bonnet and lift the bonnet lid up and see how quickly the cloth slips off it the more slicker a product less of dust magnet

Need to give that bouncers a shot next when I run out of the current stuff.
Just like the easiness/laziness of the spray and rinse stuff. The carpro h2o was great stuff I’ve used before but it’s quite expensive and fiddly compared to the likes of dry and shine and megs.
