Wear a copper helmet! Anything over 1mm in plate thickness ought to do the trick, but this is pure speculation!
Get someone to make you one up from 2mm copper and then invest in some car paint and turtle wax, preferably purple, the you can go round looking like magneto out of the x-men without looking too silly!
