If it's massive then there are specific helmets for that outside of the normal range.
So measure to see if it really is massive ;)

L in the MET I bought (Veleno SIM) is 58 to 60cm, above that they have the predatore (similar design) and testagrossa a flatter design in XL size 61-64 cm

Halfords have the giro hex among others
Also the bell venture is quite popular, there's the XLV (XL Venture) for those of the larger bonce
I ride with Giro Xen, E2
or a peakless Met Ippogrifo
Definitely try on as many as you can :)

Like they all said, try them on and find the comfiest. Most comfortable helmet I've ever used is a Limar, I've vad a couple and they've been great.

Tried a MET and just don't have a MET shaped head.

I've yet to find one of the buggers that fits properly. I try them on in the shop they seem fine, then as soon as I use it properly they seem uncomfy. I'm seriously considering a BMX style one.
