wow I think you guys are having problems if your getting head aches.
as I stated earlier I have never really gotten a head ache from hookah, but have gotten sick from to much nicotine, and bad flavored shisha.
Plain and simple you guys need to take time between drags and just relax while smoking shisha.
Last night we smoked 8-9 bowls and I was smoking on everyone of them constantly, but I kept my hits spaced out by like 10 to 15 seconds and didnt try to hit it like it was the last hit I would ever get from a hookah.

like others have said:

headaches can be due to
1) Carbon Monoxide. either from the coals being lit, or from the coals themselves
2) Nicotine. Nicotine poisoning can cause headaches
3) Lack of Oxygen. This is an assumption, but if you hit the hookah too rapidly, while not getting enough oxygen, you may get that head buzz, but also can cause headaches.
4) Other causes could be bad charcoal (chemikills such as accelerants from the charcoal could give you a headache, not limited to sulphur), food coloring in the tobacco, too much glycerin, overheating the bowl.

I don't really get headaches when I smoke, could be because I smoke cigarettes too, but not sure. Whenever I smoke a lot by myself I sometimes get a throbbing in my head, which goes away usually after I lie down for a bit; but never when I smoke with friends.

Just try to use natural coals, also try to use another hookah flavor and don't try to take big vacuums until you get used to. Remember that the carbon monoxide that the smoke has blocks the entry of oxigen so maybe that's why you get the headaches... as most of the people said take a break between every puff. Good luck!

This stuff I'm smoking now is starting to give me a killer headache, Al-Waha Cola. But I think it has to do more with the flavor then anything else. Smelling this stuff makes me kinda sick. I'm about to take all this shisha out back and burn it.... Shits terrible... O.O

i've heard that putting ice at the base of your skull, on the back of your head, is a good way to eliminate headaches. but as for preventing them... i had a BAD headache a few days ago which lasted all night (it decreased in strength) despite ibuprophen and even lasted until the next morning. the only thing i did differently was i smoked too deeply and too often and on an empty stomach. verrrrrrry painful
