If you are a biker, you know that a helmet is an important motorcycle gear to any biker’s safety. However, the helmet does not have a good impact on any hairdo. Have you heard of the helmet hair? It is flat look you get with your hairstyle when you remove your helmet after your ride. Unless you have crop hair, the helmet hair is still very much a concern for some riders and pillions, male and female.
Here are some tips to help you arrive at the destination looking groomed and elegant, instead of looking like someone has just been in a fight:-
- Buy a ventilated helmet which is one of the important motorcycle protective clothing, as this will help minimize heat and moisture, which causes frizz.
- Apply a light mist of hairspray and then put on a bandana before putting on your helmet to help keep hair in place.
- Wrap your hair around sponge curlers before putting on your helmet. Be sure there is enough space between the curlers and your motorcycle helmet to avoid a tight fit.
- Pack some essentials with you that includes travel straighteners or curling tongs, a brush or wide toothed comb and a small hairspray.
- Once you reach your destination, apply some dry shampoo to give your roots some body.
- Braided up-dos are all the rage in celebrity circles, so opt for a Heidi crown plait or a French braid and either leave in or take out for natural waves.
- Put on a bandana or skull cap to keep your hairstyle in place. Skull caps can be bought from most motorcycle supply shops and shops that sell motorcycle oem parts.
If this all seems like a lot of trouble, you can always change your hair to a short style that you can simply run your fingers through. But, whatever you decide to do, always wear a helmet when riding your bike. Safety is more important than style.
