    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.

    Not me.

    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&#8217;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&#8217;s a problem not me). <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" /><o:p></o:p>
    So, grow really long hair.<o:p></o:p>
    Or, if you think you look &#8220;damn silly&#8221; without your helmet, wear your helmet for a while at the office and you won&#8217;t look near that silly when you take it off. <o:p></o:p>
    Yes you are vain, get over it.<o:p></o:p>

    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.:deal

    I always have helmet hair when I take off my helmet, I don't think anyone cares about that. I just comb it with my fingers.

    Closing the top air vents keeps your hair/head from getting sucked into the air channels as much. Then you will have a sweaty stinky head instead.

    Shaving your head won't help. I'm mostly bald on top and my Neotec leaves channels in my scalp. :cry

    At this point all I care about is that I still have hair to get messed up.

    I'm thinkin' that the venturi effect on your cranium reduces the choke flow of blood in the brain and activates your neurons. Conclusion - this helmet makes you smarter! :norton<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" /><o:p></o:p>

    Well this certainly opened up a can of worms. Guess we see a need for helmet head hair gel so you can look just as good off the bike.:rofl

    Several have suggested shaving the head. Fortunately I have enough to delay that need for a while. Plus the missus says I can be bald or I can be fat but I can't be fat and bald. So I bought stock in Rogain. :huh

    Women can be so demanding... thankfully I have hair so I'm reserving my right to stay fat....
