Headaches From Scalp Tension?

 Yesterday, I learned a very valuable lesson!  Whoever said “Beauty knows no pain”, LIED!

Have you ever had a headache that you believe was caused by too much tension on your head?  If not, thank your lucky stars! I had a terrible experience yesterday; A migraine, which I believe was bought on by the bobby pins I was wearing.

After I took them out, I felt relief immediately!  In the past, I’ve had the Ouchless headbands that have been overly stretched cause the same problem when I’ve attempted to wear them as headbands. Taking them off immediately relieves the tension! In the future, I will ensure that the pins are not so tight against my scalp. My hair looked great and held in place, but it was almost unbearable!

Has anyone else experienced the Bobby Pin headache?

  1. Seven years later and I see this! Lol! Yes, this happens to me with the Bobby pins and headbands! I stubbed across this site after experience the worst headache today. First I thought it was seasonal allergies but then when I noticed where exactly the pain was, I knew it wasn’t an allergy/sinus-related headache. When I retraced my steps, I remembered that I sectioned and twisted my hair today with she butter and bees wax, but almost no water. I normally spritz a little or twist immediately after showering while the steam is still in my hair. Afterwards, I pinned my hair with Bobby pins. Shortly afyet my head started pounding. As I was driving, I had to take them out an as soon as I did, my head stopped hurting as bad as it was. I Googled it and found that massaging the scalp helps as well! So I’ve been doing that for the past 30 minutes with olive oil and it helps so much! I have 4C hair!!!!!! Next time I’ll use a moisturizer when twisting and no pins! Thanks for the information!
