Does anyone know if they have inserts or anything to go in the helmet to tighten it up a bit around the head. I just did the keratin treatment on my hair, and cut off a lot of it (6"!!), so I have a feeling that its going to fit a little looser on my head now.
Could you ask a tack shop for a CO foam helmet-fitting strip (if they're a CO retailer?)
When I bought my CO, the tack shop cut a few strips of this thin, dense foam with an adhesive backing off a roll to put in to tighten up my helmet (the CO rep recommended putting in the back of the helmet, not the front). I was in-between sizes--one size down pinched and the next one up was slightly loose. They only gave me 1 strip, explaining that if I needed more than that, the helmet was too big. The foam strips were directly from CO, so it seems to be a pretty common occurance.
If you can't ask a shop, the CO foam strips were about the thickness and density of the thin craft "fun foam" that you can buy at Hobby Lobby & other craft stores. You could probably cut your own strip from a fun foam sheet--they may even have sheets with adhesive backing.
Warning: If you put in one strip front & back, and the helmet still shifts around, you'll most likely need a new helmet.
Or you can use panty liners if it's just a little bit loose. Sounds gross, but whatevs. Works. I used it in lesson helmets one summer to try to keep them de-stinkified, and noticed they tightened them up just a little bit.
