    Hot cup of coffee seems to help me :-) I think it is not good for long term and the body may become addicted to caffeine. But it does help me to get rid of the headache (esp. the one sided headaches)
    Sometime I do take a paracetamol pill that helps relieve the pain.

    If it is a migraine which rarely happens, I will lay down and hope I don't throw up.  Usually if I can fall asleep, it gets betters.  Only happens once every few years so I am lucky. 

    Regular headaches, I will take ibuprofen and try to relax.

    I always believe in prevention. So what I do when I have headache is doing meditation. It helps to relieve the headache.

    My wife used to have migraine but after she went through acupuncture.

    It's usually a sign of dehydration. Drink water.

    I usually either lie down or suck it up. I cannot take painkillers because I am allergic to NSAIDS and other things simply don't work for me.

    I first drink few glasses of water and then slowly drink some warm tea or coffee. Sometimes I just take some power nap and that also helps me in getting rid of the headache.

    Two others have also mentioned what I was going to say. Here in tropical Brazil, it is one of the signs you are becoming dehydrated. We tend to work in the garden and we drink several liters throughout the day.
