Helmet hair

Postby fatsmoker » Tue Mar 28, 2017 08:38 am

Posting for wife: She's just started cycling to work regularly, but isn't happy that her hair is either flat from wearing a skull cap, or wild if she doesn't wear a cap. Any ideas?

take a spray on conditioner and do her hair when she gets to work ...... if I had hair that's what I would do

No - ignore that.

Cut the top of her helmet cap off so she can have monk Head. It'll be brilliant.

Well genetically speaking us men do have an X chromosome which gives us the right to post 50% of the time on women's forums

Has she tried dry shampoo? I know MrsHD uses it in an emergency to fluff her mop back up again.

Tell her that helmet hair is better than being fat. That''ll go down a treat :wink:

Asked my hairdresser the same question: she said comb your hair, spray over dry shampoo and use fingers to fluff up hair and remove the "helmet hair" look

I have the same issue. I've taken to either showering at work, or embracing the messy look. I use Bumble and Bumble undressing creme, rub a bit on my fingers and then through my hair, and it looks messy but kinda like it's meant to be like that.

Helmet hair sucks
