Arai XD Helmet-head hairdoooo paaleeese!!!

Don't you just love that look? Get off your bike at the next gas stop.....acting cool and suave.....maybe you have a few onlookers checking you out.....you take off your helmet.....presto!!!! you look like a character from the Pee Wee Herman show....nice little puff of air sticking up like a dorsal fin off a tuna......quick, where's my hat........oh yeah!!! you're cool.
Is there anyway to combat this crazy phenomenom?

So you are talking about the famous "Araihawk" I see.
It looks really cool when you have gel in your hair and it stays that way all day!

If you're worried about other people seeing your helmet hair you have issues.

Shave it, put a bandana on it or get a helmet liner.

Mini sweat/stocking head caps ...

I bought picked up a couple very light scull cap liners at a bike shop. Not sure of the brand, but they work great. Not only do they help keep the infamous "helmet doo(doo)" from happening, it keeps you cooler because they wick sweat away from your brain bucket.

Arai Xd Hair

I Too Have Had This Problem, Even With My Summer Cut Down Close To Bone Level, I Just Keep My Cap Where It Is Available.
Other Helmets Don't Do This.
