I never used to get my hair tangled so much compared to now, I guess it’s because it’s much longer than before and the fact that I ride the motorcycle a lot with the boyfriend. This post was supposed to be more about avoiding tangled hair from wind when riding motorcycles or bicycles but then I figured why not make it a general one and talk about how to avoid getting knots. It took me sometime to understand that this cannot go on. I cannot be sitting at some sort of event with friends and attempting to open the knots that I got in my hair from the ride to the event. It’s embarrassing and it just doesn’t look good. Plus you always leave a trail of your hair around this way.
I have attempted to tie my hair into a pony tail and if it’s a high pony tail it’s not comfortable at all with the helmet on and if it’s a low pony tail it doesn’t really help much either. I am not sure if for short hair that would work better or not but for me it didn’t. So what did I start doing? Braiding ! Actually I used to suck at braiding and still do in a way but I do manage to braid my hair so that it doesn’t get tangled when I am on the motorcycle. So for all you girls who have boyfriends with motorcycles or you girls who simply ride the bicycles a lot and suffer from tangled hair, start braiding your hair ! I believe it’s good for all windy occasions.
Here are some tips to avoid getting your hair tangled regardless of whether you ride motorcycles or bicycles
- Brush your hair before you shower
- Dry your hair gently
- Don’t wrap your hair in a towel after shower
- Do not brush your hair when it’s wet (it can damage your hair)
- Get Regular trims to avoid split-ends
- Use a comb then a brush
- Use silk or Satin pillow cases to wake up knot-free 😉
Hope this helps you avoid getting your hair tangled! May the days coming upon us be knot-free !!
