I must have weak neck and scalp muscles as I am prone to tension headaches easily do to updos that include more than 1/4 of my hair.

But as you read in the title of this little blurb I have found a solution. Sort of. Or at least a little coping mechanism.

If you suffer as I do but still want to wear your hair up esp. if it's' hot then you might want to try this.

I did a bun because it's easy but an do where all of the hair is on top of your head will do.

10 mins before I styled my hair I took 2 aleve.

So far 30 mins later only mild achiness.

And I figured while the aleve is working on my headache and my hair is up I am building scalp muscles and neck muscles.

heres some pics................

Looks nice! I hope you get some relief. It took me a lot of adjusting to train my scalp and neck to get used to having my hair up more frequently. Now I can usually go about 12 hours without any headache or neck pain. :)

Good luck!

I'm to that point yet but I will keep it in mind. I've heard of people having headaches do to hair pulling.

It's great that you've found something that works!

Do you do neck stretches? I hear that if you do them regularly it helps reduce the frequency and intensity of tension headaches, so they might help with your problem.

That is a really pretty updo! I like how you made it look softer even with a top-of-the-head bun.

I'm kind of glad to hear that this is a common occurrence and it's not just only happening to me. :doh:

So, if you start to wear your hair up more often, can your scalp get used to the tension? Or should I be taking ibuprofen every time? D:

I don't know if one can train ones scalp and neck to handle the tension but I am sure gonna try.
