Those Hair Tie Things

Postby Pam » Fri Dec 04, 2015 11:33 am



My wife has past shoulder length hair and when riding she puts in it pig tails or a braid. Either way it flips around on her shoulders and at the end of the day it is so wound up she can hardly drag a comb or brush through it. Can anyone point me to some where I can get on of those hair wrap things. I have search around but have not had any real luck

I would not be surprised if Wingstuff, Cyclemax, Whitehorse Press, Dennis Kirk, J&P Cycles, JPWilson, Competition Accessories, Cycle Gear, or one of the other large suppliers does not have exactly what you are searching for. Personally I would do a Google search of each and get the phone number and call them and explain what you are seeking.

I use hair elastics. Buy them at any drug store or even Wallyworld. About eight, spaced two inches apart and I got no tangles at the end of a days riding. Maybe the problem is that passengers on Goldwings get more wind. Buy her her own bike, :lol: :lol: :lol:

She has tried the elastic things but at the end of the day they don't hold. Tried to get her on her own bike, She likes the virago I have but doesn't want to shift and is afraid she will forget to put a foot down at at stop. Bottom line as I see it is she need a little confidence because she can do it if she sets he mind to it.

My wife Laura has very, very, very long hair.....It's past her butt. I've asked her what the solution is as we've encountered this. She uses a silk hair scrunchy from www.pennysboutique.com at the base of her ponytail and she uses scunci color match or not color match pony tail holders https://www.heb.com/product-detail/scun ... ck/1776684 for the tail as well because they are soft fabric and do not knot her hair as a rubber band ponytail holder would and has!!! Check out these products as they are in our motorcycle video that we recently posted:





Let us know how this works out for you, I guarantee your wife will be hooked on these products as my wife has generally found that she is satisfied with these products we've recommended, and that has not been easy to solve as we went thru a lot of other products to get to this point.

If you have any other questions she can help your wife out and is eager to hear how it worked out for her.

Best!!

Has she tried a "Princes Leia's" bun?

WAY BACK in the early 70's, when it was fashionable, I had longer hair I had that problem of hair snarls after a good long ride.
What I found to help was after shampooing and drying then rub in the conditioner and let it dry. I would guess to add a little water for her hair amount. Once the day was over a small amount of water re-energized that conditioner and a comb was all I needed. BUT, not sure if 10" hair is the same as her longer locks.

HINT from my first wife who had hair just past her cheeks. Separate her hair into 4 or 5 ponytails. Less per-bundle is easier to brush out.

My wife also has very long hair. She picked up one of those leather hair wrap, glove thingys at a bike rally we were attending years ago.
I have also seen them at Harley Davidson dealerships. I don't spend much time at HD dealerships, it's just a guy I ride with can't drive past one unless he's been there before.

Reading through Wing World the other day and remember seeing an ad for something like this.
Looked it up again and the site is Raci-Babi.
They have the "Diva-Do" that comes in lots of colors and patterns.

Well she has watched the video of Laura's hair, Her hair isn't quite that long only about 1/2 way down her back. She says she has tried the scrunchi things. At this point I can't say what her plan is going to be, but I am sure there is something in the works as she is a pretty crafty person, weather she makes a purchase or comes up with her own I have no idea. I will keep you up to speed on this. I will be a while because of the time of year.

My horses' manes can get severely ratted and tangled and though it may not be manly I bought a bag of very small rubber bands from the tack & feed store and I bet they'd work. They have a better material that has a smoother surface that doesn't seem to catch or wrap up in the hair (albeit far more dry and coarse than human hair). They are available in a variety of colors and start at about 1/2" in diameter and are very stretchy. They stay put on my horses manes' and its terribly windy here, they also can be removed quickly (I hook them with a comb and slide them right off the end). My daughter has used them on occasion and though she doesn't ride a bike she likes the quad! They might be worth a shot for your wife, they're cheap too, she could use and toss them without feeling the pinch $.

I never knew there was such a thing for horses, but then again I am not a horse person. I will run it past her. Like I say she is pretty crafty so she may have something in mind. Time will tell
