Helmets for People with Small Heads

Hi everyone, Im new to the whole motorcycle scene, but I have been surfing the boards for a few months.

I went yesterday to one of the local dealers to try on some helmets. I ended up liking the HJC AC-12 Carbon helmet because its light and it is pretty quiet. The problem is that I tried an X-Small with the 25mm padding and it was maybe a hair big...it would be too big once itthe padding was worn in. They make 30mm padding, but they add it to the medium shell to create the size Small. The AC-12 line is supposed to run small too.

What other options do I have for a nice quality light helmet? I am willing to spend the appropriate money on a helmet and if it is over my price limit, im sure my parents wont mind pitching in some money for safety gear.
