    I have an IRH ATH that I wear with my hair tucked up in it with no problem, and I have thick curly hair. Maybe she could try that brand.

    Why doesn't she just cut her hair?

    She doesnt want to hack off her hair into a super short boy-cut. As a correction to the OP-im not looking for ways to change her hair, we are looking for helmets and ideas to flatten the hair she already has. Any suggestions about that would be very helpful(:

    What about, instead of trying to find a helmet that fits it all, use a bathing cap or something similar that people use who wear wigs to flatten it all down under the helmet? Just doing some outside of the box thinking here.

    I would think that if she wants to ride and thinks it's important to wear a helmet she would do what is needed to make sure it fits correctly. Wearing a helmet that is way too big is just like not wearing one at all. It may actually be more dangerous.

    I'm a fan of out-of-the-box thinking and reckon this could work. A black cap of some sort to keep everything under control.

    But I would be concerned about buying a helmet that's too big. My head is 61cm round and finding a decent helmet that looks good was a challenge!

    I'm Jamaican with waist length, super thick, lightly relaxed hair. The key to fitting my hair properly under the helmet is flattening out my roots (i.e. Blow dry and flat iron). Whenever I relax my hair and my roots are straighter, then it fits fine. As my roots get thicker, it feels extra snug. I also use a 100% silk cap to help flatten out my hair before I put on my helmet.

    The idea that her only option is to cut her hair is laughable. That's like using a hammer to kill ants. It doesn't have to be such an extreme "solution." If she's willing to blow dry and flat iron her roots, she can get her hair to fit without compromising the efficacy of the helmet.

    I think her issue isn't her hair so much as the shape of her head though.

    BTW, I have 2 helmets - Troxel and Charles Owen.
