Especially if you get one made out of Coolmax, that'll just wick away the perspiration. I never go out without one!

Also, there are these other things... I can't remember the name of them... but it's like a single, seamless tube of Coolmax-like material. I get mine in the PX at a nearby army base. You can turn this thing into a skullcap, headband, balacalva, head wrap... make all sorts of things out of it just by the way you fold it. Anyways, I used to wear the old-fashioned terrycloth headbands, and I still do when I'm just working out in the gym... but for riding, try a Coolmax HeadSweat under your helmet! :)
shortie headsweats even bettertarwheel

I like the shortie version Headsweats without the ties in back that make you look like Marco Pantani. Since I've started using Headsweats, I never use headbands anymore unless my H-sweats are in the wash. Oh yeah, if you're getting bald on top like many of us, the headsweats keep your scalp from getting polka-dot sunburn.
Why don't you just adjust your helmet , ------MR_GRUMPY

Halo makes a good one: http://www.haloheadband.com/. Also, just about any cycling catalog sells decent terry-backed headbands that fit under a helmet.

click on http://www.pearlizumi.com/pearlizumi/site/catalog/productlist.aspx?iProductTypeSubID=23
I know, long URL. But the Pearl Izumi Microsensor headband is worth every cent. This is one of those times when you get what you pay for.
