I'm glad that you posted that second response. Please please please please don't chuck a piece of equipment on a horse just to strap its head down to make it 'look pretty'. A 'head set' comes only from correct work from the hindquarters of the horse, a swinging back and eventually the 'head set' will come naturally.
Have you got a trainer? Because I am a strong believer in fixing the root of the problem, not just covering it with a bandaid. If he is throwing his head constantly, there will be a reason for him doing so. Possible dental issues, bitting issues, and rider issues. I would eliminate all of these options before strapping something to his head to cover the problem.
