The helmet perm ...(7 posts)

The helmet perm ...Humma Hah

This happens to me on occasion, like this morning. I take my morning shower, including washing my hair, then rub in a little stylin' gel and drag the comb thru it. Then, before my hair is dry ('cause I'm always running late), I slap on the helmet and ride the bike to work.

If somebody distracts me with some little annoyance like WORK when I get there, I'll forget to dash into the men's room and comb my hair again. The result is my hair sets in the pattern of the inside of the helmet.

The effect would have been considered quite stylish in the 40's. The Tony Curtis wave looks a little silly, now.

For the summer, I find shorter hair w/ no gel works.

After the ride, I take the helmet off and run a towel thru it. Dries off, gets rid of any helmet head, and leaves a casual look. No comb necessary.
The answer after a ride or a race is a Hat.....nmMR_GRUMPY

I buzzed my hair about two years ago, and now just have the wife buzz it about every three weeks. Saves time on showers, no bad hair days - EVER. Rides cooler in the summer, but in the winter have to wear a cap.

Really I just love not having hair to deal with. Side benefit is most people that know me tell me I look 10 years younger, which is not a bad thing when you just turned 50

That's what Armstrong did ...Humma Hah

Reportedly, he used to have long hair and was very vain about it. Lost it during chemo, and now has better things to worry about.

I'm still kinda vain, but I've been working toward shorter hair.
