Same here, I refer to it as the "no dew". Me don't do anything to it but wash it.

No, they are still available but now they are called "Silky". I recently bought a few after my old one gave up around edges. They are made exactly same as the older "Slick" that you are referring to.

Sounds kinda like your helmet doesn't fit well....

Helmets come in two shapes: round and Oval. Maybe you "head" is the other shape?

THis could also be cause by alot of "dope slaps" from the back of the bike....ROFL!!!

Seriously, helmet hair is actually causesd by static electricity... this guy just grounds his head and it's no issue for him....

It might sound silly, but can reduce your helment hair by leaving a little conditioner in your hair.. cutsa down the static. I would bet my booties (helmet shape and static) are the cause....

any kind of mesh/fabric covering the head will cut down on helmet hair and more importantly = wet helmet stench~
Ck bike shops for what moto-cross riders are using- they get hot!

At lunch stop, grab a dry cover from the bag and enjoy the rest of the day
Note- ck if your helmet liner is removable, wash it- or buy replacement liner made with that new fangled anti-funk technology built in

Also popular for summer heat: those chiller towels- add ice-cold water to one and hours of cooling to the head or any body part you want
Bonus- damp hair styles easily at destination!

chiller towels ain't worth a damn behind a windshield Tom,

and, there isn't any room for them anyway with a full size helmet and mesh jacket.

I disagree John, behind the Tulsa - with vent open- I get airflow behind the screen, enough to move air thru the mesh jacket
As for helmet- if you can fit your choice of helmet liner = you have enough room for a thin cooling towel
Im using a very thin cooling `tube` that can be worn in several ways.

You dont have to have airflow for the cooling effect inside helmet, that cold `towel` will reduce blood temp of head and neck
For jacket- pop up above the windscreen if needed.

I cut my own hair down to 1/4 inch. Haven't been to a barber shop in 3 years. Ain't got much hair to worry about now.

I don't know what the key to success is, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.
