I am still trying to figure that out, my 19 month old does it too me, and it hurts, I have learned timeout is very effective with my son! He doesnt like it and i dont have to chase him! maybe if she's older 18 months try it!

this is attention seeking behavior and should be looked after first... whenevr u do not intend to fulfill her demand, avoid saying no.. instead make up some story and change her mind... talk somthing pleasant and of her interest... try to stay calm... also make her listen some soothing music or rhymes which she may enjoy

my cousin used to do this when we were kids i remember how terrifing it was she threw a fit and slammed her head into the sidewalk once and had to go to the hospital and get stitches, i know she did this to get attention, shes 30 now and shes perfectly fine, maybe you should get her a helmet or something to protect her head so you can try some different approaches without worrying about her hurting herself, thats what i would do
