Are you worried that your helmet is messing up your hairstyle? Or are you one of those who absolutely avoid wearing a helmet and go on to risk their life just because you do not want the helmet to spoil your look?
Your hairstyle only gets messed up due to friction against the inside padding of the helmet which is easy to avoid with a few tips and tricks.
The below tips will help you to get over your helmet aversion by breaking the cycle of bad hair caused by helmet wearing.
Use a head scarf (balaclava)
Wearing a headscarf under your helmet, protects the styling of your hair. When you remove your helmet, your hair styling would be only slightly disturbed but it would still retain the overall pattern as you had combed it. It would get back in shape just as before in no time after you apply some water or gel and comb your hair.
A headscarf also absorbs the sweat from your hair and prevents it from being absorbed by the padding inside the helmet so you don’t have to deal with the consequences of damp inside the helmet.
Use a comb or brush with small bristles
Many bikers keep a small circular comb in their pocket which does a great job of fixing your hair within 10 seconds. In fact, most Indian men will swear that the round comb does a better job than any ordinary comb.
Maintain the right length of hair
We have heard from several bikers as well as experienced it ourselves that the right length makes it easy for hair to retain its styling even under the helmet.
So we see that it is really quite simple to maintain the styling of your hair even while wearing a helmet. You only need to know a few basic tips. Now then, is messed up hair really a valid reason for risking your safety or the safety of your loved ones while on the bike? We don’t think so.
