    Long Hair

    Anybody out there have long hair, and if so how does it affect the way you ride, i.e. getting in your face, obstructing proper fit of your helmet,etc.

    ewww I used to have uber long hair pulled back into a pony-tail like 1 year ago, and when I rode during the hot days of summer it got all gross and stuck together from the sweat

    but then I got fed up and shaved all my hair off and it was soo nice, it cools you off much faster.

    Only affects the fit of the helmet. It either has to be worn way low, which lets a lot of shorter hairs get loose and in my eyes and mouth, or way high and I get some odd looks from people.

    Oddly... this is something I kinda think about. Whether this be a troll-post or otherwise...

    I have to ponytail then wrap it all up with a do-rag (which is literally a rag I cut from a big piece of cloth) then helmet on top. The wind will DESTROY your hair, if you care about it. Which I have to. I work at a salon and commute on my bike to work during the winters.

    Honestly, my helmet wouldn't fit me w/o the do rag and my hair. If I ever shaved my head, I'd need a new helmet.

    I've got semi-long hair now, and it seems to help keep the sweat out of my eyes. Usually around this time of the year I shave my head, but I found that the salt-infused sweat would slide down my forehead and into my eyes; now only a problem with helmet hair and overheating...

    Pigtails get all twisted and snarled. Pigtail braids is where it's at.

    its more of a "what does it matter, stop being silly"

    for the record, I am quite white. so white in fact, that my hair is red, and on a sunny day the parts of me that aren't farmer-tanned are blinding

    a while ago, i saw a women's helmet with a hole in the center at the back for clearing a pony-tail.

    i can't remember who made it though.

    my hair isn't quite that long [just long enough to scrape back into a 1" ponytail if i wanted to], so i just tuck it behind my ears. the straps keep it in place after that.
