Helmet liner for bald head

Ok, hair was white and the part was getting wider and farther back to I just shaved it off. Wife like it but it is high maintenance.
Question is - want to buy a cap type of thing to wear under my helmet for comfort and to absorb the sweat. Worried that anything I get might have a seam that will result in a hot spot.

Suggestions would be welcome. Just qualified for my Saddlesore 1000 and have many more long trips to accomplish.

Thank you in advance.

Re: Helmet liner for bald head

go to your local Cycle Gear store and they have under helmet beanies both in freeze out and heat out versions. My bald head uses the heat-out version, I think it's thinner.

I wear a Buff. It seems to work in both hot and cold weather. I always keep a spare in my tankbag

I have several and toss in the laundry every week or so. I've been using them for years and they are very comfortable. I have hair and they keep the helmet a lot cleaner.

Re: Helmet liner for bald head

I got this in a medium and it fits my 57-59 cm head no problem. Quality stuff. It is wind blocking material around the neck. It has two top-side panels of a mesh material that will breath. Without a hat in 20 degrees you feel it but no problems with a helmet. For me.
They make a heavier one you could look at. They make great stuff.
