Does nothing more than leave an indent in your forehead.
I use cycling team headbands from any bike store that sells clothing for $20 and they absorb the sweat well and extend the life of the padding in the helmet. Thin and absorbent
I feel I must offer a (semi-)contrary view on the Halo. I use one, albeit the full bandana, and find it works exceptionally well*.
I, shall we say, "perspire freely" and used to have all sorts of issues with sweat running into my eyes. I use the bandana on every ride and have very little issue now. The Halo bandana isn't perfect but it cuts out 99% of the problem for me. It has an added bonus of offering a little additional warmth on the cooler mornings and some cooling effect on the warmer ones plus some sun protection for the noggin if, like me, the thatch is a little bare in the top paddock.
* so much so that I used to borrow a Brian Clough-ism to describe it, to wit: "I wouldn't say it was the best piece of cycling clothing I've bought, just in the top one
". However now I cannot say that as I bought an Icebreaker "technical" merino baselayer.
