Ok, Ladies! So I have fine, long, curly hair that reaches to my bra-strap in the back. On my first couple rides I put it in a pony or a flip-bun and it was a giant dreadlock when I got home, I had to pick at it slowly to avoid breaking too much hair.
I cannot braid it behind my head on my own, I'm just not that coordinated.
A twisted bun, even a low one, doesn't work with my helmet.
I have been pulling it to one side and braiding it over my shoulder, which seems to work, but my ends get so dry... plus, a side-braid makes it weird if I want to take my hair out and let it down after, it's all asymmetrically kinked. I would love to take my bike somewhere and arrive with hair that doesn't look like it's been smashed under a helmet for hours.
Is there anything nice you can do with your hair to have it a) not get knotted to shit and b) have it look somewhat nice when you take your helmet off?
And lastly, has anyone tried these? http://twowheelcool.com/airhead/
