Well, as a brain aneurysm survivor, my first reaction when I hear "my head feels like it is going to explode" is that you should seek medical treatment. If this is the worst headache of your life, go to the ER. If you are nauseous or have sensitivity to light, go to the ER...you may just have a migraine, but sometimes they are hard to get rid of without treatment.
If you are just mildly uncomfortable, the advice that you have already received is good. Hydrate. I get a headache pretty much every time I drink less than 8 cups of water a day. I find that I really need 10-12 cups most days. My experience is that Excedrin is the best OTC pain reliever for headaches. Aspirin might help if you have a Coke with it--the caffeine helps. Tylenol and Advil are pretty much worthless where headaches are concerned.
You may just find that you need a week or so to get all of the junk out of your system.
