You may want to concentrate on Pranayama/Breathing Techniques. I found that head/handstands were my headache problem and I have cured it with a simple change in my use of breathing. I find that when I am in an outward stretch open to everything I breathe inward slowly. When I am about to do an asana that I know will give pressure to the head and neck area I breath out slowly and release the tension that is known to be inevitable.
Another reason I found is Fear. Unknown fear of doing the certain asana(s) that is/are giving you troubles. When fear is involved your muscles tense up and breathing gets out of whack. Light panic can definitely give headaches. Before you do the pose you may ask yourself, Why do I not want to breath correctly? or Why am I doubting? Thinking about it beforehand mey just help in releasing your tension and keep your breathing normal.
Just some suggestions. Namaste, Sunny
