Hair conditioner ,one for the wives

Post by Ghostman »



Heres a question for some of the wives who ride or are passengers. My friend she has long hair and sometimes we ride without helmets. Well her hair is long enough it hangs down her back even with a helmet. She was wondering if some of the wives or girlfriends could chime in with what they use for conditioners for their hair. Shes tried the olive oil and coconut oil,she wont do the avocado and I just dont feel like hugging a salad after her treatments. Any help would be appreciated. My late wife because we rode so much had almost a pixie cut so this is new territory for me.

My wife's hair is to her waist and she uses an extra long leather ponytail holder we got at a rally a few years back. She still has to braid it but the holder keeps everything in place and reduces knots and tangles if we ride without helmets. I think hair glove sells them up to 8 inches the one we found is 12 inches the vendor made theirs and had a variety of lengths. They can be used with a helmet and minor adjustments. As far as conditioners and all her family are all beauticians so she uses what ever they do on her hair.

Deb uses a hair brush called a "Wet Brush" after a ride, works any snags out a lot easier than a standard hair brush.

My wife had hair down past her shoulders. She tried the hair glove but didn't like the weight. Late last summer she went for a trim and came home with a pixi thing happening. That solved the tangle. Issue. Also she doesn't use near the conditioner any more.


(Don't worry about the name on the post I needed a name I could remember so used a name out of the hat) :D

My wife has long hair, but she found a solution.
She gathers her hair into a pony tail, and then puts a sock over it and secures it with an elastic.
She puts her hand into the sock, puts the sock opening around the base of the pony tail and holds it with her other hand. Then she just pulls her hand out and the pony tail in at the same time.
When we get off the bike, she just pulls the sock off and her hair is fine.
She uses a silk or nylon knee high.

Alternately, because we use helmet liners, she tucks her hair up under her helmet liner and then puts the helmet on.
But this would depend on whether her hair has to much volume to fit under the helmet.

Back in the 80s, my wife and I used to go touring in France/Holland etc on our Honda CX500. It was all done on a shoestring because we didn't have much money and we had to camp. The only hard luggage I had was a top box. This didn''t stop my wife insisting we take a huge hair drier on every journey. And yes, we are still married. Still no money as they kids take it all.

Never have this problem with my wife. Her hair changes color from time to time, but it's always spiky and short!
