am i the only one bothered by the statement made about wearing 3/4's of a helmet just so the makeup/hair is ok?

ride to ride.. not to impress..
how does that saying go. dress for the crash not the ride.
anyways, water-proof mascara rocks on the hot days.

some info

You CAN wash out the inside of your helmet with shampoo and airdry it. You can also remove some liners (mine is hjc and you can do that). Also there are hair wraps you can find at alot of Harley type shops that are made of silk or satin, they keep your hair from getting all gnarly under your helmet and are supposed to make it really comfy too....

Me, I just put it in one long braid or two short ones if I am taking a long trip, my hair is like waist long so it helps alot. For short rides I rarely do anything and my hair whips around like a tornado of blonde, haha doesn't bother me and its funny cause people sure see me coming = conspicuity!

I just shake it out and look windswept, lol. I do have friends who use leavein conditioners and brushes every time they take their helmets off, it could help.

My MSC instructor was being an arse, saying lisptick makes you more aerodynamic - he though it was cute until I requested he demonstrate, lol.

I have long hair too, and sometimes braids work for me, with a baseball hat or if your going somewhere just undo and shake out, lots of scrunchies and clips will do!

wow an oldy thread brought to life.. LOL..

I use to have waist long curly hair... I would pull it back at the neck and braid it all the way down.. I use to leave it out of my jacket and never had issues of nots but when I went down at the track with it out the ashalt ripped my pony tail to shreads and I lost a LOT of hair and gained a million split ends... so after that I always tucked it inside my jacket...

A year ago I cut it all off (3 ft worth) and donated it to Locks of Love but now I'm growing it back out...

As for the sqooshed hair under the helmet... I'm horrible about that.. as far as not caring LOL... I never wore a hat or a coverup.. I just ran my fingers through it to try and get it not so matted looking and left it go...

As for makeup.. don't wear any even on a day to day basis.. only for something formal...

Wow! You donated 3'!!!! I donated just over a year ago, but I only had about 11" to donate. I keep my hair shorter now. I keep it between chin and shoulder length. It works WONDERS on overall maintenance as well as not looking crappy after a ride. One thing I will mention, however, is that depending on your helmet, tying a bandana at the nape of your neck can HURT after a long ride. I use those giant elastic head-bands now instead. Keeps the hair out of my eyes, and since my hair isn't long enough to tangle, it does its job.

yeah it was past my but by the time I cut it all off I loved it but was getting to be too much to keep up with.. I kept it super short for about a year and had had enough of getting it cut every 2-3 wks so now it's chin length as well... and probably will keep it like this for a bit.. the sides are taking forever to catch up to the back but it's pretty darn close now... I can go with the messy look easier now that I only a lil bit of bangs

I could never wear a band under my helmet.. it would be too tight I remember trying to french braid my hair and wear my helmet LOL.. no way was it gonna fit

I use to have the same problem snowmobiling as well with the helmets .. I finally bought one slightly larger to allow for those pull over head things taht cover half your face and neck

I agree...MAC is the way to go as far as make up is concerned. And helmet Hair? two low braids work really well under the helmet...and you can take them out and fluff your hair when you take off your helmet.
