long hair on the windy sea

James,

Whether you braid it or wrap it with something, you are definitely going to have something hanging behind your neck and on your back, so the swivel-head problem will remain. I used the stretchy, metal-clip free cloth covered elastic bands up tight next to the head (maybe two of them, my hair was thick and heavy) and attached the sleeve/glove to these bands. This worked pretty well to prevent frizzy braid, but it does add weight to the thing hanging from your head.

I suppose the only alternative that eliminates all these problems is to jam your hair up under a bathing cap or stretchy wig cap. Very aerodynamic. You could buy an admiral''s hat

And glue it to the outside of your wig cap. Then you''d really look the part.

Or you could do what I did, and donate your hair.
