thy arent any heavier than undreaded hair..which long hair bothers some people with migraines...however tightening at the roots i would think can aggravate migraines especially if you were aggressively maintaining them which is unnecessary

Well I have had chronic migraines since I was a child, now that I have dreads I haven't noticed any change. Then again my dreads are pretty young and only shoulder length. I also have thin hair so they are very light.If you have thick hair, lots of it and your locs grow very long I can see that being a problem for some people. But I don't know for sure.

Mine feel heavy sometimes especially when their wet, I don't usually get headaches from them tho. I get a sore neck sometimes tho from dancing/headbanging. I have a giant congo where my rat tail should be so, that probly contributes to the pain. I just get frequent neck masasages.

Those suffering from migraines should really seek a professional or licensed massage therapist who specializes in the treatment of migraines. I am an LMT and migraines are my specialty and I have countless patients who have come to me after exhausting all other avenues and battling these migraines for years. It may not make them 'go away' without returning, but it is an effective tool for managing your pain--very effective.I hate to hear of people just living with pain.
