    Helmet help!

    I have very thick hair and just got a new helmet so that I could fit all of my hair in it because I couldn't in my old helmet. I soon realized it's quite difficult to keep my hair on top of my head. I already use a hairnet and put my helmet on from back to front but it doesn't really help. :/ I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions as to what to do to keep my hair from falling.

    Thanks!

    I have the same issue, I french braid my hair for shows and lay the braid up over my head then and use a hair net to keep it in place and LOTS and LOTS of hair spray.

    As for when I just ride I just put it in a low pony

    Helmets are designed to keep your HEAD safe, not your HAIR safe. If you try on a helmet with all the hair on the inside, it will not fit properly.

    Firstly, I realize this but I show so it needs to look neat and it doesn't if my hair's falling out. Secondly, it does fit properly becuase I tried it on with my hair in it.

    I have super long, super thick hair. I put it in a bun at the base of my neck. Did you know that if you put your hair up in the helmet and get hurt, you void the warranty? It's designed to fit your head, not your hair.

    I cannot wear my hair outside of my helmet. The shows that I participate in and the team I compete on will not allow it. Thank you for your concern but it's not necessary.

    That's disgusting that a show committee would put looks over safety.
