Well, you just can't.
The helmet is in the texture file that contains the player skin.
And you cannot have an envmap (if thats what you mean) or other effects on a _player_ skin, all the other models can have those effects only the player skin can't.

But you can have a envmap reflection on a helmet that has fallen off a player though, but that's probably not what you like, since you'll only see it when a helmet has been fallen off, and loads a different skin on the loose helmet model.
