Dealing with Helmet Hair

Question . . . . both of my helmets leave a grid pattern in my hair after even a few minutes of riding. What do y'all do to avoid this?

I wear Helmet Liners for that, and to keep my ears from being folded over when I pull the helmet down.

Also, the liners absorb moisture and rinse out easily for the next ride.

I just bought 5 of them from CycleGear at $5/each... normally they are $11.99

Bilt Brand, "Heat-out"

they are not quite as comfy as the Silk brand I used to have, but Silk is extinct now.

they stretch, so one size fits all.
I just am not comfortable unless the liner is on first.

The liners prevent your helmet's internal foam liners from getting soiled.

I quit worrying about hair a long time ago.

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

I just have the barber use a number 2 guide on the clippers and take it all down. No need for a brush or comb, no worries about helmet hair, and only use about 5 drops of shampoo for each shower. Makes it a lot easier to care for.

I have the wife take the pet clippers to me with a short guard on it and no helmet head problems.

for me, it is more keeping the sweat off my head from ruining the helmet pads...

2nd, is for comfort, to me, a helmet just feels a lot better with the head sock type skull caps.
