After all, you have to do whatever it takes to make sure your poor little head is safe from those pesky cabinets you keep accidentally leaving open!
Roxy Muse Helmet (Surfdome, $94.18)

With a bright Roxy helmet, you can color-coordinate your head gear to match any outfit. You’ll be totally safe from the sensation of whacking your head against the trap you unwittingly set for yourself while also looking totally cool while also avoiding this common head injury.
Outlaw T-70 Purple Butterfly Helmet (Leather Up, $39.95)
If helmet color blocking isn’t enough for you, this bad girl has dainty little butterflies on it to remind you just how fragile your soft baby head truly is when traversing the absentminded minefield that is your kitchen. You’ll never look more adorable as you nearly crack your skull on the bottom of the kitchen cabinet after dropping breakfast scraps into your Yorkie’s food dish. You better enjoy that bacon, Ollie!!!
JSP Evolution Deluxe Reflective Mining Hard Hat (Full Source, $41.75)

Shark S700 Nasty Helmet (Motorcycle Superstore, 249.99)
For those of you who want the look of a strong-headed, independent woman as you navigate dangerous kitchen territory, this badass motorbike helmet is for you!

How does this happen to you so much?
Xenith X2E Football Helmet (Sports Unlimited, 234.95)
While there’s no shame in wearing your indoor helmet at another person’s home, you may not always have it on hand when you’re negotiating the dangers of your boyfriend’s kitchen. If you’re visiting your beau, borrow his football helmet! He’ll think it’s really cool that you’re into sports and probably not even realize how much you hit your head into things.
Good Grips Stainless Steel Mixing Bowl, Stainless Steel (Bed Bath and Beyond, $34.99)
If you don’t have a helmet on hand, have no fear! Just grab a mixing bowl from your cabinet (be careful when you open it!) and let it sit on top of your head. It may not fit as well as the helmets above, but it’s sure as hell better than getting decapitated by your deadly Tupperware cabinet!
