We all know the feeling. You get off your horse, take your helmet off and your hair looks like you haven’t been to a hairdresser in months. The easiest way to solve this problem is to tie your hair together. But what if I say that helmet hair is no longer a thing? Or at least not if you take the next 5 tips into account.
A hairnet is not only the perfect way to keep your hair nice and tucked in your helmet. It also prevents sweat from making your hair oily. They come in all different hair colours, are seemingless and help prevent helmet hair.
- Headbands and buffs
These two things do exactly the same as hairnets. They only do it just a little better. Headbands and buffs can definitely absorb most of the sweat and keep your hair nice. It’s also the perfect way to keep your ears warm in the winter.
- Spiral hair ties
Most of us tie our hair with a regular hair tie. Unfortunaley they leave a mark on your hair when you take it off. That is exactly what spiral hair ties won’t do. You can leave them in for hours, take them out and you’ll look like you haven’t had a hair tie in the whole day.
- Dry shampoo
A lot of people tend to wash their hair after they finished riding. Which is normal. But washing it every day, or every other day can make your hair go greasy a lot quicker. That’s where dry shampoo comes in. Bye bye oiliness and hello ‘clean’ hair and good smell.
The liner inside your helmet is what will absord most of the sweat. We all wash our hair but we’ll sweat one million times in the same helmet without washing the liner. Doesn’t make sense, right? Washing the liner won’t only prevent helmet hair, it also prevents your skin from breaking out.
Lastly, good ventilation of your helmet is essentiel. If your helmet doesn’t ventilate enough, make sure to let it dry first before you put it in a bag or somewhere else.
