I think I'm high on Head On  
Oh, goodness.

Went to the beach today and spent almost an hour finding parking, went in the ocean, sat on the sand and left.

Felt a little migrainey on the way home so stopped by the supermarket to get something that might help. And sorry, Cdsdame, but I couldn't help myself. I bought some Head On.

Guys, I wish I could describe the feeling in the left-hand upper quadrant of my face.

Imagine taking a bucket and adding gasoline, menthol and ice chunks, stirring it all together, and taking a rollie brush and putting it on your face. I feel like my face is being ice-attacked. Honestly. Someone I know (cough cough husband cough cough) once took two hits of green mescaline and decided to go out for ice cream and remembers his vanilla cone tasting "like a giant metal statue of Madonna". OMG, guys, I totally get that now. I'm floatin'. This s*** is weird! The upper left-hand side of my face IS a giant metal statue of Madonna!

I can't figure out if it feels good or not. I think it feels good. I know this post probably makes zero sense right now, but some day in your lives you will fall to the temptress that is Head On and you will totally understand exactly what I'm talking about. Honestly. I'm really surprised this isn't illegal and/or an illicit street drug. It certainly potent, that's fo sho.

LOL - I think the best way people put it is it really, really distracts you. And then you have time for your meds to kick in. Altho some people did say the headache went away, but it's more like you're so tripped out on the sensation you don't even think about the headache. XD
I definitely smell a pork product of some type...: Samuel L. Jackson gets eatendistress_bacon on August 25th, 2008 01:26 am (UTC)
Sweetie, it's a placebo -- just wax + teeeny bits of carcinogens...

Caveat emptor :)
shalimar77777shalimar77777 on August 25th, 2008 02:04 am (UTC)
ROFL - It doesn't feel like a placebo to me...I'm still trippin. XD

You know what this is? "Medic Ice" for the face. LOL

With my period pains of death I reallllly want to have what you had!!!!!!
Ngh pain killers :(
shalimar77777shalimar77777 on August 25th, 2008 05:28 am (UTC)
LOL - I don't think it works on your uterus, tho. A couple of people online said they tried it on their knees and such but nothing happened. XD
Diabolic noodlecoffeebits on August 25th, 2008 03:23 pm (UTC)
v_v oh then I guess I am screwed. My pain killers won't help as much and my liver is probably shutting itself down!
shalimar77777shalimar77777 on August 25th, 2008 05:45 pm (UTC)
ROFL - oh, gosh, I hope not!
Diabolic noodlecoffeebits on August 25th, 2008 05:47 pm (UTC)
Well no evidence for it now >_>. But I have serious migraines that usually includes losing my sight in one eye, and my periods kill me whenever they decide to appear, so I pretty much live on pain killers :X

Is it like rubbing a stick of Icy Hot on your forehead?
shalimar77777shalimar77777 on August 25th, 2008 05:27 am (UTC)
It's EXACTLY like that. XD

A bit more tingly, though.
Stephbenobsessed on August 25th, 2008 09:21 am (UTC)
Sounds wonderful! I wonder if we get that here?

Sorry about the migrane tho- suckage

Edit: we do!! I have some in my bathroom cabinet, but I've never used it . Muahahaha now I know what to use for the next migrane :)

LOL - enjoy the uh..."iceness" because it certainly is strange. XD

oh my gosh, that giant madonna statue is the best description ever, I am so ready to apply that directly to my forehead!
shalimar77777shalimar77777 on August 25th, 2008 12:18 pm (UTC)
I know, huh? Only a person on double green mescaline tabs would come up with that. And at the time? Perfectly reasonable.

The stuff is weird. I was able to take a nap with it on, tho, which surprised the hell out of me. XD

So Head On works? I thought it was just a big ole scam?
shalimar77777shalimar77777 on August 25th, 2008 05:46 pm (UTC)
Apparently it was exposed as being just wax and some other stuff (see wikipedia), but it's basically icy hot for your face. It will distract you from the migraine. You won't feel pain, just ice. XD
Nicole: benlookat_thestars on August 25th, 2008 05:51 pm (UTC)
I thought you were never supposed to put icy hot on your face?
shalimar77777shalimar77777 on August 25th, 2008 06:55 pm (UTC)
Hmmmm...never thought of that. The Headon formula feels exactly like Icy Hot so I wonder what the deal is.
Nicole: benlookat_thestars on August 25th, 2008 06:59 pm (UTC)
I guess as long as it doesn't get in your eyes, it's okay.
clarktherobotclarktherobot on August 25th, 2008 04:25 pm (UTC)
If it's anything like Icy Hot, be careful to avoid using as deoderant. I can still remember mistakenly grabbing a stick of this crap instead of Mitchum when I was in high school. On the plus side, I got to stay home from school; however, I was stuck in a near-permanent state of giving the touchdown signal.
shalimar77777shalimar77777 on August 25th, 2008 05:47 pm (UTC)
ROFLMAO!!!

OMG!

ARE YOU KIDDING?

Honestly. That is some funny shit right there. I can only imagine you having to raise your arms for the whole day! XD
clarktherobotclarktherobot on August 26th, 2008 01:48 am (UTC)
Sadly, I'm serious. The Icy only lasted for a few seconds while I wondered why the Mitchum was suddenly giving my underarms inner peace. The Hot took over for the next few hours, followed by mild discomfort whenever I put my arms down. I just laid in bed, risking the itching and burning only to eat.
shalimar77777shalimar77777 on August 26th, 2008 06:11 am (UTC)
OMG...that is pure, pure comedy. I can totally picture this...the cool feeling and then the AAAAAAGGGGGGGHHHHH!!!!

You poor thing. It is HI-larious, tho. XD

I think HeadOn has some heroin or something like on it. My mom used to buy a headache cream from VietNam and we discovered it had opium in it. No wonder she felt good and wanted more. LOL
shalimar77777shalimar77777 on August 25th, 2008 06:54 pm (UTC)
ROFL -- I can imagine how good that opium-laced headache cream was. You know you faked some headaches just to get some, Spciy. Come clean. XD

I am a gov't worker. I refuse to answer this question on the grounds that it mayincriminate me be used for illicit purposes.

LOL -- XD

Well, that explains why all the woman can say in the commercial is "Head On! Apply Directly to the Forehead!" She's flyinnnnnnnnnnn.......
Sorry about the migraine, though. Oh, and glad you liked the vid I sent you! :)
shalimar77777shalimar77777 on August 25th, 2008 06:54 pm (UTC)
Loved the video!

Yes, the woman on the commercial was deffo flying. This stuff is too weird to be believed. XD
