Summer Cycling Hair

25 June, 2013

Recently I shared some tips on how to cycle and stay fresh in the summer. Although I swear by all of them, there is one issue I struggle with the most in handling the heat, my hair. I have long, thick and heavy brunette hair. It keeps my head warm during winter and overheats me during summer.

I love to wear my hair down but during the warmest seasons, I just cannot. I won't even bother wearing a helmet! One way I have dealt with this (while not wearing a helmet by choice) is by wearing it up, be it a messy or stylish bun, braids, pig-tail braids, pony tail you name it, I'm throwing my hair up when it's sizzling outside. It keeps me cool and still looking good on my bike. 

I'm a huge fan of up-do's during summer and probably have almost tried all of these styles Refinery29 recently published Helmet Hair, Begone! We’ve Got 5 Bike-Friendly Styles.

Thanks goodness I'm a naturally curly girl but even so I have to agree with this post. Updos are definitely the way to go to beat the summer heat. I prefer all variety of buns myself. My absolute favorite style is the braided Grecian Goddess style (braided around the temples and pinned back into a bun).
