Yes - you have to embrace the irony! Like when we pull into the HD dealership in Cartersville on a Gold Wing and K1600 so we can use their bathrooms..... They LOVE that!

Try keeping a comb in your purse along with the tampons and lipstick.

I have a Shoei... same problem. I wear a baseball cap or, more often, just don't care. I tried the helmet liner thing and decided that it was too much hassle.

Honestly, I'm happily married and not trying to attract anyone... Especially not the gomers I sometimes ride with! The wife just laughs at me when I get back from a long ride and I have troll doll hair.

Wait... do you think I'm just repressing my desire for a HD?

I have the Shoei hair issue too, but it's not on the radar of concerns for me. Perhaps one of these would serve well...

Well I wear a Shoei Multitec and my hair is cut with a #1 guard so I can tell you that won’t help. After 6 or 8 consecutive 12hr days I actually get marks in my head not just my hair! My wife has the same helmet and very long hair and does not seem to have the same problem (OP thinks it’s a problem not me).
So, grow really long hair.
Or, if you think you look “damn silly” without your helmet, wear your helmet for a while at the office and you won’t look near that silly when you take it off.
Yes you are vain, get over it.

Maybe this place needs it's own sub forum for the metrosexual mirror gazers who have crawled out of the wood work here and in other threads. I'll bet some of the lady riders can give them tips on hair, nails, and moisturizer lotion.
