Risk / benefit: The conventional wisdom is that the heat of a helmet may interfere with the hair taking root. I don't know whether that's true, but as a pathologist I've seen what happens to cyclists and construction workers who don't wear their helmets. Ask for how long, and it's not worth changing careers or even taking a serious risk. If you're physically fit, you look great regardless of where you have hair.
