Testing shows helmets survive hair care products

BHSI has tested helmets to determine if commonly used cosmetics, sunscreens, insect repellents, etc. might damage helmet materials enough to affect impact protection. Lab test results showed no effect on performance, despite some evidence of surface damage from some of the products.

Our Web page has all the details, including photos and lab test data.
