4head Levomenthol Stick for Headache Relief £3 (Prime / +£4.49 non Prime) @ Amazon
Posted 17th Oct 2020
Unlike most headache treatments, 4head Stick is specially designed to be applied directly to the forehead.
The active ingredient is levomenthol, more commonly referred to as menthol, presented in a convenient retractable stick dispenser. Many people are familiar with menthol as being the main constituent of peppermint oil.
When 4head is applied it causes a cooling and tingling sensation, dilating the blood vessels in the skin, helping to block pain signals to the brain. It can also help to relieve and relax tense muscles in the head.

It works really well, if you get the usual behind the eyes migraine pain then this can take the edge off really quickly (usually 10 to 15 minutes) or take the pain away entirely without having to resort to traditional stomach taxing painkillers.

Thanks @ssc1 it's £2.85 with Subcribe and Save.

Thanks...missus gets headaches often (always has). She's tried just about everything so bought this for her to try. Thanks op.
I get really bad headaches and these work so well
This is excellent stuff i swear by it thank you!
I much prefer to use these than take painkillers. Doesn't always work but usually helps.
I find this effective but no better than cheaper versions of the same product which I've previously bought in poundshops etc. Still avoiding shops, where possible though so will be ordering one. Thanks OP. I am prescribed various meds to prevent and treat frequent headaches and use this alongside.

It kind of gives a distraction from the headache, doesn't do a lot for me.

Best thing I've found are sumatriptan injections for really acute migraines, along with 900mg aspirin and 1g paracetamol

Yes the 900mg aspirin works for quite a few people. You get the sumatriptan injections prescribed?

Lip balm shouldn't give you the same reaction as this, else it would irritate your mouth, if you used this the other way around

I love these. Find them really useful when pregnant as I like to avoid taking paracetamol as much as possible. I always get really frequent headaches when pregnant as well so these are a life saver. Brilliant price.
Can’t say it did any good for me, exempt the menthol made my eyes run. However, what I do find helps pain over the eyes is arnica gel - the stuff you put on aching muscles and bruises!
This stuff is so good. Helped me so much when i was pregnant and had severe headaches
Do they do anything for skin irritation?

Yes on prescription. Much better than the pills, even with aspirin
Wouldn't this just be like sticking vaporub on your head?

Their official statement is wishy washy too. Simply claiming that participants could feel the effect on their skin within 1.5 minutes but making no mention of headaches askforevidence.org/ask…000
These do work, however what I found to be better is something called axe brand oil. Its a clear oil you apply to your temples. It gives a tingly feeling. Haven't used painkillers for headaches in years.
I think it's enough to *think* this works, bit like the placebo effect. Either way, it's always worth a try for £3. It does help for me.
What if my headaches are under my hair, do I have to go bald first?
they do a cheaper version of these called "headsoothe", Yellow label.

Believe I got those from savers or poundtime in the past.

What's good for a headache? Drinking heavily the night before.🤢
Tried it on the wife still no BJ! Returning it. 4head yeah right
Thought I’d give it a try during last Ramadan and works for me. Takes a 5-10 mins and if applied close to eyes it can irritate it but still worth it in my opinion.

Similar to vaporub but definitely more effective for headaches for me.
Forgot to add in my previous comment. For around £6 you can get tiger balm white from super markets. Decent sized jar and if you use a little it goes a long way. Pretty strong stuff and doesn't stain like the red tiger balms.

So glad I found your comment! Wasn’t sure if it was suitable for pregnancy and I don’t want to fill my tummy up with paracetamol. I’m suffering so much during this pregnancy. The headaches are just never ending!
I usually get the migraine pain at the occipital region that is at the back of the skull. I wonder how can I apply it to that area as its all covered by the hairs.
