hehe, I used to have a problem, not sweat from my forehead, but mucous from my nose! rather unpleasant to have it dripping and wiping it on your sleeve. for some reason though now, it doesn't happen anymore - I don't know why.

I have noticed though, ever since I started playing hockey 1-2 years ago, my sweat smell has changed! Lol - make of that what you will. Hockey hormones

And advice to the OP, really all I can say is if you're using a full face cage, just swing the cage forward on the bench and wipe your face down. Something you have to learn to deal with, I guess *shrug*
maltesehockey.com

I love the stuff- I got it after MikeD on these boards recommended it. I don't use a sweatband anymore and it offers more protection. Plus you can clean it.

The downside is that it is pricy....a full helmet kit will run somewhere around 125 if i remember correctly

If it is that bad, and for the keeper who has the same issue...MAXIPAD, sounds gross but almost every keeper I know uses them, sticky side down on the brain bucket, not your for head.

If you want to be a little more discrete, a tampon can provide similar protection and no one will know you're head-ragging.

Some good suggestions already, so I'll just say this --

When your body overheats it's probably your head that will sweat the most so make sure you keep the rest of your body as cool as possible. Take stock of your gear -- chest pad, shin pads, socks, etc -- and identify anything that's not well vented and see about replacing it. For example the Reebok 6K helmet you wear is much better for keeping your head cool than a standard Bauer helmet. Wear your chest protecter a little looser, wear thinner socks, anything that gets more air circulating will help cool your body will reduce the sweat level.

The league I play in doesn't allow players to remove their helmets, even on the bench, while the game is in play -- too much risk in getting hit by a puck. Between periods I always take my helmet off and you wouldn't believe the amount of steam that rises off my head.

Not a bad idea. Boxers use vasoline on their brows to help keep the sweat out of their eyes (also helps with the friction of the punch)

Same thing happens to me. Just wipe it in your glove.

I use a bandana. Works like a charm. I wear glasses too (contacts aren't an option), and if I don't use a bandana, the sweat makes them slide down my nose.

I'll second the skull cap, just make sure you can get a good fit with your helmet. I'll find they are sometimes tight, or if you move your helmet it gets pulled down almost over your eyes. But nothing beats it if you can get a good fit.

As a goalie I'd like some more info on that...
The maltese gel is a system of "dots" forehead and back plate pieces that can be placed onto any existing foam. It can also replace foams with a bit of tweaking. Foams are much thicker than the 1/8" gel pack. This is NOT the gel you see sold for shoe insoles and such. The one draw back is that a mask that has had its foam removed/replaced with gel is no longer certified.

The SPS system can also be removed and installed in another mask. Its not like you have to buy another set with each new mask or helmet. I have had mine installed in my mask (no foam) since 2003 and my youngest son has had his since 2004. I have never had a problem other than with the chin piece. The film cover broke open but Phil (owner of maltese hockey) replaced it, no problem.

Placing the gel into a mask that you selected for fit with the foam interior can be a bit tricky when you remove the foam. Some pieces of foam may be needed to cut into a "riser" to get that perfect fit. The end result is a mask that does not RING from puck impact, does not allow sweat into the eyes, moves the face forward for greater lines of sight...and of course, the absolute best protection you can get.

My youngest sons team mate/fellow goalie used to like to do this head-butt thing with other goalies. I say used to because he will not do it anymore. At least, not with my son. He went to give Gator a head butt and gator brought his head into the move too. Dang near knocked himself out while my son was unfazed. With the gel you just do not feel much impact regardless of it being a puck, stick, skate whatever......

drop maltese a line (phil@maltesehockey.com) and talk with him. He will give you the straight up on the product. He will also like to learn a bit more about you. If he feels that the gel will not suit you or your mask, for whatever reason, he will NOT sell you the product. His main goal is safety of the players and goalies. Sales come second...

Well, I splurged on the under armour skull cap and gave it a try last night (I got the green colour to match my eyes), and it worked out quite well. Wasn't exactly a perfect fit as I have a bit of an egg shaped head, but I increased the size on my helmet and didn't notice it throughout the game. Also didn't have any sweat dripping down my face, it was nice having clean glasses after the game.

The no hair gel thing was also a good suggestion. I like to have my best Icy Hot Stuntaz look before the game, so I've always gelled my hair. Really though, I gel my hair in the morning, so there's likely some left in the evening, which I wasn't rinsing out. My worst experience I can recall now was an afternoon shinny game on the weekend, where likely I gelled my hair just a few hours before game time in my usual morning ritual. That really stung the eyes.

I was going to let that go but since someone else picked up on it... Dude. I'm a chick and even I don't get gear/accessories to match my eyes. Besides, if it's under your helmet, how is anyone going to know what color it is anyway?

Amazing fabric. Its a thin headband, sort of a like a cotton with a bit of lycra in it. Soaks up a ton of sweat. I wear contacts also and these headbands are an easy solution. They are like $7 a piece but im not sure you can order online.
