Pillows are very good thermal insulators. The heat of the head remains in the area, where the head rests and makes one feel uncomfortable. If one could move the heat away from the place, where the head rests it will improve matters, always assuming as MDG suggested that what is bothering is the heat of the head and not of the room.
One possibility is to make a pillow case out of brass chain link mesh. If the links are fine it will conform to the head shape and not hurt. Such a heat conducting case will behave much like a heat sink and keep the head cool.
