It has never fallen out, but it does make your head sticky if you sweat in your helmet. Lol
I used to do this when I used to show, way back when, as well. My only problem is I was in CA showing in 100+ degree heat and the hairspray would get into my eyes. I used to use a black sweatband (I know what a geek) around the edge where the helmet was, or at least so that it wrapped around my forehead but hidden by the helmet to keep the hairspray from running down so bad.
