If so... what do you do about it when you wear your helmet?

I shaved all (or at least most) my hair off, and so now it is at a length were I wish to start using product etc.
Anyone have any tips?

I was thinking... just take the mousse / hair spray to college in my pocket, and do it when I arrive (doesn't take long...) but ideally your hair should be wet or something...

And then if I go to town, or the shops during the day, then my helmet would ruin anything...
And I don't know how easy it is to re-style? (I have had long hair for YEARS and YEARS.)

Any tips?
Killachipmunk I am looking at you hear possibly?

haha im the same to be honest but my style is to be straight but helmets tend to ruin that haha. worst thing that could happen to my hair is that it gets wet because i have naturally curly hair so thank god helmets are water proof :p

Well Cam, I am sorry to tell you I don't use any kind of product.
I used to use a styling gum, and about 2 minutes of messing with it produced a fairly standard texture.
These days I don't bother, my hair's got enough structure to hold itself up when I run my hand through it after taking the helmet off!

Be careful using product before going anywhere though, friend of mine thought of getting around the helmet issue by using that "indestructable" hold stuff. Credit to it, it was indestructable, but it had moulded his hair to the shape of the inside of his helmet by then.

You are all a bunch of jessies :p

I have a style it's called a number 3 in winter and a number 2 in summer, know when it needs cutting, I contemplate needing a comb. Never changed the colour of it, neither have I put gel/wax or what ever slop you lot are slapping and slipping in there. Bought my hair cutters when I was 18 and just started at university, and they are still going strong 20 years later. Now that's value for money.

Contemplating the Grant Mitchell look, number 2 is to long now. Started using Wash & Go years ago, now it’s gone so what.

This +1! Pair of clippers from Argos and DIY. Bought some last year and they've already paid for themselves multiple times over. If your hair is short, no worries about it looking a mess when you take your lid off. Also if your hair is receedingnaturally thin like mine & Benji's, it looks better than a comb over ;)
