    No,I mean to say the kids gel their hair like that on purpose.....As if they had a helmet on at some point.

    Yeah,they ride to school alright....in the back of mom's car.....Living life through a 2x3 inch screen.

    We have one student at our local high school who rides to school--my 15 year old grandson. He tried it on the last two days of school, and says it was great and he wants to ride to school next semester. He did say that there are a couple other students who ride--out of 1,500 or so!

    It's pathetic that so few students ride. You can really notice how traffic is diminished throughout my city when school closes. Sad to think so many students miss out on all this fun.

    I've done extensive research over the past months and the best answer, if you insist on wearing a helmet, is the hair gel trick... not much of it... a little dab will do it. Thanks to everyone who posted...

    …For years I resisted using a gel, thinking they were greasy, like the Brylcreem of my youth, but not so….
    That phrase, “…a little dab will do ya...” was in the Brylcreem jingle:

    Quote Originally Posted by Wikipedia
    It was first advertised on television with the jingle "Brylcreem — A Little Dab'll Do Ya! Brylcreem — You'll look so debonaire. Brylcreem — The gals'll pursue ya; Simply put a little on your hair."[Though the last line as I recall was: “They’ll love to run their finger through your hair.”]...

    When the dry look became popular, partly inspired by the unoiled moptops of the Beatles, the last line was changed from "They'll love to run their fingers through your hair", to "They'll love the natural look it gives your hair."
    Quote, coincidence or eidetic memory?

    Blast from the past. I don't suppose you can still buy Brylcreem? I bet you could find it on eBay...

    I'd say, a really good jingle. Iconic even.

    It's funny, I never knew until now that it was spelled with a "y", or 2 "e"s for that matter since I wasn't reading yet when I saw those commercials.
