Blowing in the wind. Hair Sock

I'm a 59 year old male, with long hair. When I ride it tangles.

I'm sure that I can't be the only one with this problem. The wind knots up my hair so well that I have to tear the knots out. I've tried ponytails, hair scrunchies, and dew rags but it's tough to hide all the hair.

Recently, I thought what I really need is a socky. Like a scrunchie but closed like a sock. Then I thought why not a sock.

First I tried one of my socks. I found a tube sock worked best. My sock was a bit big, so I went to the dollar store and found a kids sock.

Much better.

When I ride, I now wear both the sock, and the dew rag, and I'm loving it.

It took a little practice.
First I start to put my hair in a ponytail and stop.
Then I turn the sock inside out and put the sock on my hand like a mitten.

Then I grab the hair like I'm doing a ponytail, and grab, and fold, grab, and fold, till all the hair is in my grip inside the sock.

Then I pull my hand out, with out letting go of the hair.

Then I tuck and roll the hair filled sock end, into the sock. Just like rolling up a pair of socks.
