Anyone ever get a headache from having your hair tied too tight?? Mines been up in a claw all day and I had a headache, as soon as I took my hair down the headache went away. How odd.

Those claws especially give me headaches! I had to stop using them on a regular basis.

One of the reasons I rarely wear my hair up.

And it's miserably hot in the summer to have it down too

Yeah, the claws are definetly hard on your hair (not to mention the headaches they give)

Being in Fla. with long hair isn't comfortable-I have to wear a ponytail or it'll stick to my neck, or generally bug me. But it does give me headaches. If I start with a headache, it makes it worse..

I get headaches from those also so now I use "scrunchies". I normally don't have a problem with scrunchies unless I pull it way too tight. But when I do get a headache from my hair being pulled back too tight the best thing in the world is to wash it and just massage the scalp.

Yep, I have such fine thin hair I have to tie it tight and usually get a headache

Yeah, I get that. It comes from your hair being put into an unnatural position for too long... like, hair up in buns, braids piled on your head, "the claw", a ponytail pulled too tight up high for too long...

Your hair naturally wants to cascade, fall down... and when ya pull it up, there's the soreness!!!

I get scalp tenderness all the time. The longer your hair is & thicker/heavier it is, the more sore your scalp will become! Mine's to my waist, so I do the braided bun thing or pin it up somehow. By the time I reach my car at the end of the night, I'm pulling all of those things out & letting it fly! Donation day will be so liberating!

Oh, yes! I have thick hair, and its past my shoulders, and if I put it up in a ponytail when I havent had it thinned out in awhile, it'll not only make my scalp sore but cause a headache. The curse of thick hair!

I never wear my hair up, so I am out of the loop on this.

Having my hair up all the time for school and work gave me horrible headaches, that is why I cut my hair fairly short. I never thought I would like it, but it is so easy.
