That's the one that doesn't work at all for me.

Maybe it depends on how much you sweat - in my case, a lot.

I've had good luck with a cool-max do-rag. I like the
Headsweats "Shorties". A bit pricy, but they work. An added
bonus is that they also keep your helmet lining from
getting soggy.

Well, I bought a Pearl Izumi handband (though WTF they made
it *white*, I'll never know), and have been using it with
apparent success.

But the bigger heat-management news is this. I finally got a
sleeveless jersey. Duh! Why didn't I think of that before?
With that airflow under your armpits, it's almost like
having AC! In fact, sometimes it's almost too cool. Woo-hoo!
Problem solved!

White is a good marketing color -- soon it will turn grey
and you will have to buy another one or look like an
unkempt slob.
