A little girly, a little opionated

Helmet hair- an issue all bikers must endure. I have set out on a mission to make my hair look like a helmet was never worn. 

First of all- no negotiation. If you bike, you have to wear a helmet. And yes you can still have lovely locks post ride. 

The above pic shows my favorite way to wear my hair under a helmet in cold conditions. 

First I put a polishing creme in my hair while it wet. Then I blow it out with a round brush. Spending a little extra time than normal smoothing it out. *key* then I spend a few minutes using the cool down feature on my dryer. Once your hair is hit with cold air it locks in place. Then I work some hair oil through my hair. Now it’s time to style. I part my hair in two sections (like pig tails) and then twist the “tails” counter-clockwise and secure with a hair clip. I put the hair clip as far down on the “tail” as possible. I twist counter clockwise so while I’m biking any heat creates a cool flip out effect and the top has more body and bounce from twisting. I have layers in the front so I twist them to the side counter clockwise and secure with a bobby pin. Creating a cool bounce in the front.  

When I get to work I brush it out and voilla, you may never know I biked into work.
