: In the UK, for someone asking directions to get to a place, then 'head right'could well be an instruction how to get there.
Something more about the context would help. Someone who is confused or under the influence of drugs might see things more clearly if he could get his head right, that is, get his mind in the right condition.
Directions usually instruct people to head straight on or in a particular direction - north, south, east or west - rather than right or left. To change direction, they usually say 'Turn right', 'Fork right', 'Bear right' or 'Make a right (turn)'.
