usually nothing to be concerned about, but you havent mentioned wether she vomited ? or had loss of consiousness? you can take her to a neurosurgery doctor and he will examine the child closely and may ask for ct scan so that we can be sure about nothing is wrong.

Pediatrician Dr. H. Santosh's  Response
your concern is so true...
head injury is a serious problem...
but if your child cries and responds to you without being unconcious then there should not be much issue...
anyways get a opinion from neurologist...
not to worry much...
Thank you...
