Hair Drying and Smoke Can Cause Headaches
Dry your head well after a shower. It is best to use a towel for this. The problem with water is that it can seep in through the scalp of your head and if you leave your head damp, the moisture can seep in result in a headache.
Do not blow dry your hair as far as possible. Dryers are not a very good idea. The heat from the dryer is actually bad for your head. Go easy on driers and if at all you must use a dryer, use it only if you have long hair.
Never use it to blow dry the short hair on your head. If you must blow dry your hair, keep the blow drier well away from your head. Not only is the heat bad for your head, but the drone of the drier can also induce a headache.
Avoid inhaling polluting gases like automobile fumes and second-hand smoking. Many of the gases let out by automobiles and other exhaust pipes are highly toxic and they itself can cause a headache. Second hand smoking by which you inhale the smoke from your neighbor’s cigarette too can cause a headache. This is especially true if you are a nonsmoker and not used to the smell smoke.
Do not wear a hair-do in which your hair is tied up too tightly. Some people especially women tie up their hair in very tight buns or brainds. If your hair is pulled back too tightly it is going to hurt your scalp and the end result is that you will get a headache.
