The most common cause of headache is probably increased tension in the muscles that cover the skull. Another source of origin can be dilated vessels in dura mater (the hard membrane that covers the brain).

Brain tissue does not have pain receptors.

Headaches can be caused by lots of different things, and everybody's different. This isn't meant to sound like a cliché answer but the best treatment for headaches is actually prevention (much easier than trying to get rid of one, once you've got it), and this is through a healthier lifestyle. Many people have been cured of headaches by a radical change in diet (e.g. cutting out grains and sugars), exercise, plenty of sleep, and low stress.http://www.webmd.com/migraines-headache ... hes-basics
