4head Headache Relief
Advantages: Cools and soothes
Disadvantages: I still have to take a couple of painkillers for bad headaches
I love 4head. I don't really get loads of bad headaches but when I do I always tend to have a couple of painkillers and then I also like to have something cool on my head be it a cool wet cloth or else 4head as I absolutely hate having a headache and like the comforting and soothing feeling that something cool gives me.
4head can be bought in places like boots and superdrug and it costs around about £5. It sort of feels like having a cool wet cloth would on your head but I buy it because it is more convenient and lasts a lot longer than that.
It comes in a stick and is made with 100% Levomenthol which gives a cooling and soothing effect on the skin which in turn soothes headaches.
I'll be completely honest and say that this doesn't actually ever get rid of my headaches 100% but combined with painkillers it always does the trick to making me feel better quickly. This is especially good for stress headaches that you can feel pounding behind your eyes and painkillers don't really help. Lying down with this on my head for 20 minutes helps me feel better and ready again to face what life has to throw at me.
You use 4head by just rubbing it on your forehead and it can be used by adults and children over the age of six and it would be a good alternative for people who suffer migraines and don't like to take pills.
It gives an immediate cooling sensation on my forehead which is really soothing and relaxing. You can actually feel the coolness helping to relieve the pain when you rub it on and I find that it is fast at helping to soothe my headaches. Keeping it in the fridge gives it even more cooling and soothing properties and I think it feels much nicer when it has been kept in the fridge instead if in a cupboard.
A cool wet cloth would probably do the same thing but then you have the hassle of rewetting it when it warms up whereas with this you can just click it on and forget about it. I really like it and if you suffer from headaches then you will probably enjoy its cooling and soothing.
Summary: Lovely and cooling sensation
