It happens, especially when it's wet. I just try to do something that distracts me and put it up in a bun. It normally goes away without painkillers.

I don't ever remember my hair giving me a headache. It sometimes aggrivates them, but I can usually trace the cause back to something else... allergies, eye strain, tension, etc.

eta: The way you do your hair up can cause headaches.

I've noticed that I get them after having my hair ponytailed for a while. I think it's just the weight of the hair in the ponytail pulling back on my scalp. It happens sometimes, but not too often if I have it clipped up at the crown.

My hair is not quite halfway down my back and I've noticed that I get them more now than when it was shoulder length.

I do...when the headaches start, I know my hair's gotten too long and it's time for a cut (mainly because I wear it back so much when it's gotten too long).

Going back to modified CG, Aug. '08 (also pondering taking a lot of length off!)

This is how I've wanted my hair to look! Awesome -- you must reveal how you do it and how you get it cut.

Oh... and thanks!

BTW, putting my hair up always gives me headaches. Unfortunately, with the humidity we always get in the NYC area, my hair is usually up.

Wash: Devacare's No Poo (daily) and Devacurl's Low Poo (once a week)
Condition: Devacurl's One Condition

Default I used to!

I used to get headaches all the time from my hair (it's now below hiplength) and finally figured out that (a) it was actually the muscles in my neck, and (b) after a few chiropractor appointments it went away. I still get headaches if I wear my hair up too long in a new hairdo, or if it the weight isn't distributed properly.

Hope this helps!

I definitely get headaches. Especially when I wear pony tails even if they're loose. Or when I have a bun. It feels better to just wear my hair down parted in the middle. Sometimes I get headaches or my scalp is sore if i part it on the side because its weighing down to one side.
hair type: 3B
Trying Deva products now.
shampoo about once after 2 weeks.
leave condition in everyday.

Default YES!

My hair gives me lovely headaches sometimes. Especially if it is not trimmed/layered for a while. Sometimes to keep it out of my face but not give me a headache I have to just put it in a loose bun with one of those thin cloth covered rubber band thingys(without the metal) Is your hair layered? I have found that keeping my hair layered cuts down on headaches greatly.
