    Cutting my hair to make my helmet fit better???
    Hey everyone i just got my 661 flight today and its a large and a little tight, my hair is about 3.5 inches long in the front and a little shorter in the back. Would cutting my hair down to 1 inch in the front and a half in the back fix the helmet being tight??

    i just spent 180 on the helmet and it would cost another 40 to get a extra large, would cutting my hair fix the size issue

    New helmets always feel very tight... you can wash the liner or use it for a while and it will make it feel better.

    No, cutting your hair won't do that much difference.

    Wrong, it does make a difference, but you will need to buzz your head in order to notice the difference.

    I went from pretty long hair to 1" and my FF suddenly fit right again... I am the tall guy in the middle.

    1 inch of hair wont do any difference.

    dude, if you hair is thick it makes a HUGE difference. for the winter I usually have long hair and then cut it for the summer. However one year i didn't and my helmet didn't get close to fitting.. I cut it and it was moderately loose.

    try helmets one before you buy is my best advice.

    I agree, when it gets close to gettin' my hair cut, my helmets gets tight and won't fit right. Get it cut and see....it's hair, it'll grow back while you've forgot about it and yer ridin' yer bike. I wouldn't cut it drastically at 1st, you can always go back and cut more off if you don't buzz it.

    Funny thing, when I buzzed mine a few yrs back, it didn't help me at all w/sweating and being hot, it was the same if it was long or short.

    OP has a reverse mullet?
    that's pretty rad.

    And yeah, even if you dont have 'that much' hair, a trim can change your helmet fit quite a bit.

    just say no to jailbait!

    Buzzing it would probably do quite a difference.

    that girl's NOT hot. That's probably because you mexicans have ugly women, so some random girl appears hot to you...:p

    If you cut it like this you could sell your helmet cos you'd already have one...

    Dude, there is an easy solution. You can keep your hair and your helmet will fit. Get a mullet! All of your hair will be intact and outside of your helmet.
