This HeadOn product looks great, but how do I apply it?

Ah. Apparently, you apply HeadOn directly to the forehead. Apparently, you apply HeadOn directly to the forehead. Apparently, you apply HeadOn directly to the forehead.



Sorry about that - just annoyed myself a little bit there. But I bring this up because there is shocking - shocking - news in the Post today regarding this product. According to
the Post blurb, HeadOn does not effectively treat headaches. At all. Isn't that surprising? And not only does it not work - the active ingredient could be dangerous. It's not even supposed to come in contact with human skin!

Man. I thought that swabbing one's head with "a giant tube of ChapStick," as the Post puts it, would be a sure-fire headache cure. It just looks like it's going to work. Hell, that thing could cure cancer, I thought.

But no. HeadOn - it's just snake oil. HeadOn - it's just snake oil. HeadOn - it's just snake oil.
