One thing’s for sure… when you’ve got a Jeep (or a motorcycle, ATV, or convertible) and you ride with the top down a lot, you end up with some pretty strange-looking hairstyles! Jeep hair, as they call it.

The following products will help your hair look wind-BLOWN, not wiped OUT, after riding with the top down.

Other Convertible-Proof Hair Products To Try

In addition to taming flyaways while you’re riding with the top down, it’s also important to protect your hair from the sun’s damaging rays. Many of the following products also have sunscreen in them:

A paste

A softer version of wax, paste provides texture, flexibility and long lasting shine. Paste can be reworked throughout the day for convertible styles. Try Redken Rewind Styling Paste — here’s why and Loreal TecNi.Art Head Clay — here’s why: “It’s where explosive styles and messed-up control meet. This is a matt effect moulding paste designed not to leave any build-up on your hair. Excellent sculpting!” (popular in the UK)

A mousse

Gel-mousse products (like Redken Stay High Gel To Mousse) combine the benefits of both gel and mousse into one formula — great for extra hold and reshaping.

A fun hat

When you don’t know what your day is going to be like, and you just don’t care… these fun hats are perfect. Jeep Hair Don’t Care says it all!

Products with UV protection

Consider applying a good leave-in conditioner with sunscreen (like Sun Bum leave-in conditioner) while tanning, playing outdoors, or riding in a convertible. The sun’s heat will activate the conditioner — which will prevent UV rays from damaging your hair and causing color fade.

PAVES professional flawless hair products

In addition to the Convertible-Proof Firm Hold Repairing Hair Spray mentioned above, PAVES has an entire line of strengthening and enriching hair products that are great for convertible owners, including:

In addition to side combs and headbands, these snag-free elastics and ponytail holders are a necessity for long Jeep hair.

Just For Fun…

While some of us try to tame the windblown look, some people try for that look all on their own — with help of a little hair gel or other styling products.
