I know everyone is offended, but Joe is right, if you have to buy a helmet in a larger size to accomodate your hair, then it will not protect your head the way it should. The helmet should be snug enough to not fall off when you tip your head so the top of it is towards the ground, with the buckle undone. Now, if she doesn't care if the helmet protects her head properly (maybe some protection is better than none?) then by all means buy a larger helmet.
Several upside down french braids, (done on wet hair so they're nice and tight) would reduce the bulk of her hair, and leave the ends on top where they can be hidden in the helmet.
