i dont do anything, but put the ol helmet on : )

and my hair's bout a foot long! well, maybe like 8in

its long enough to be long, yet short enough to not have to worry too much about... occasionally does get a lil knotty tho... but then if it didnt get knotty, who would i be then!?

My hair was a few inches above my belt before I cut it. Now it's just around the middle of my back. I have a buff that I pull up and then tuck my hair into the back. It all stays in my helmet or I can keep it neatly just coming out the bottoms of the helmet. It keeps the hair out of your face and the back from getting tangled at all. When I take my helmet off, it usually stays inside the helmet and let's my hair unfurl all naughty librarian-like. No knots, no mess. It also seemed to help with nasty helmet hair in the 100 degree august/September months.

I always braided or used a buff to keep my hair in (middle of back length)

Remember when you used to be able to ring someone 57 times and they'd never know it was you?

Yeah. Good times.

I have medium length hair, to my shoulders. I just lean my head back when i put the lid on let gravity keep it out the way. Usually works great. Problem I have is my beard... it's about 5 inches long. I get some serious helmet beard. The cheek pads flatten the sides, the strap pushes it forwards and then the wind blows the rest of it into oblivion. I take off my lid and look like a fiend from the wire. Any tips on this??

Oops... Just realised this is in the ladies room part of the forum, probably not best place for beard advice haha. Any advice would be welcome though

If you are worried about the beard being pretty or not you are not a man. Go shave it off.

Ha true, I look like a tramp who's just stolen someone's bike gear whatever I do. Shaving it off would definitely solve the double d tangles I get, and stop hipsters saying 'strong/epic/sweet/real beard man... how long that take? i've been growing mine for... '

You could try a low sock-bun?

Tie your hair in a low pony.
Cut the toes of a sock (yes a reallll sock, maybe one close to your hair color?).
Put the sock around the elastic you used in your hair (only put it around once, dont continue to wrap it around your hair, let it be loose).
Then wrap your hair up around the sock so it looks like one of those perfect buns.
Put an elastic or two around the base to tighten & finish. as long as you do it low enough i feel like it doesn't interfere with the helmet.

knots are the worst!
