For neck and head protection that also has a cooling effect, here is the Wicking & Cooling Neck Gaiter from Occunomix. It can work in multiple different ways, so you can re-adjust it depending on what serves you best at the moment. Say you start off wearing it like a balaclava (covering both your head and neck), you can then just shift to wearing it as a headband if things cool down a bit and you feel okay with using it just as a sweatband.
Wicking & Cooling Neck Gaiter also has moisture-wicking properties which helps in keeping you as cool as possible by drawing moisture or sweat away from your skin. It also shields you from the UV rays with its UPF 50+ so no worries if you are working literally under the sun. And lastly, it is antibacterial-treated to prevent the growth of odor-causing bacteria.
Activating its cooling property is pretty easy – just soak it in cold water for a minute and then snap the fabric a few times (to sort of jumpstart its lasting cooling effect). Then simply wear according to what suits you best.
