Hair tubes, head skins, stuff I've called head underwear for years.
Keeps the helmet a bit cleaner too.

FWIW the odd time my wife decides to lead I LOVE the look of her ponytail coming out from her helmet.

That looks awesome, wonder if they have a Canadian distributer. I have a leather one that i should have gotten longer, i prefer not to have my ends out as they get wind whipped.

I'll be interested to see how it goes. My wife complains about damage to her hair. She usually braids it though, as a ponytail provides a bit of extra pressure under her helmet.

Hi all
Went for a ride today to try the hair wrapter.
We did a couple of hundred K's in strong winds gusting from 39-57km/h.
I am very happy with how it worked no knots when I got home

On ready to go

Hair out before brushing

As long as it doesn't get into the chain of your bike it's all good. It looks good on you!

I used something similar when I had hair almost down to my butt.
I used it on the bike as well as for windsurfing.

If you het some practice you can use it to swat flies....

I use a product out of America that I find really easy to use too. Hairtwisters.com is the place to go to check them out, like Ang (gottaV2) I hate getting knots in my long hair and this product comes in a couple of lengths.

Sorry I don't have any picture to post right now,

Cheers

Looked at these but they aren't long enough for my hair which was a bummer.

Update on the Hair Wrapter
Well just completed a 6000km's + trip and the would like to report the hair wrapter worked great.
My hair stayed tangle free and clean

Cheers GotaV2
