Either put him into a time-out when he does it (or a playpen or something), or ignore it. You have to choose one or the other though, you can try to ignore it and then discipline him over it a different time.

I would go with ignoring it, so if he's trying to headbang something just walk out of the room.

If you just can't, or it's dangerous, put him into a playpen or somewhere he's safe and can't really headbang anything.

Ignoring would probably work faster though, if he's doing it for attention then you just need to pretend like he's not doing it and if he tries to headbutt at you walk away or go into the bathroom or something. Just don't acknowledge that he's doing it.
