Lacrosse helmets should offer protection, but it doesn't hurt if they look good at the same time. Painting a lacrosse helmet may void the warranty, so look for other ways to customize your helmet.
Things You'll Need
- Dish soap Towel Phillips-head screwdriver Facemask Decals Chin guard Visor Chin strap
Remove the chin straps for easier access to all parts of the helmet. Remove the facemask if you are going to replace it, otherwise it can stay on.
Clean the helmet thoroughly with dish soap, even if the helmet is new. Dry with a clean towel or rag.
Replace the facemask. Be sure the replacement mask is from the helmet's manufacturer, as most facemasks are designed to fit a particular helmet and will not work with different models. Chrome, titanium and black are the primary facemask options from most helmet manufacturers. Simply unscrew the old facemask from the helmet and attach the new one.
Place decals on the helmet. Cascade, one of the largest lacrosse helmet manufacturers, sells a variety of decals and stickers to spruce up your helmet. These include vent stickers, which will go over your vent holes, as well as stripes, designed to fit along the sides of the helmet in between the vents. Decals for the back of your helmet also are available.
Change the visor and chin guard. Cascade allows owners of most helmet models, including the popular CLH2 and CS models, to change the color of their visors and chin guard by using its Mod Kit. These are replacement pieces, so simply unsnap the visor and chin guard, and snap the new ones into place.
