Is there a way to find the parent branch for detached head?


commands like "git log -n 1 --pretty=%d HEAD", "git show-n 1 --pretty=%d 
HEAD" are failing when multiple branch HEADs pointing to same commit. I 
want to know does git maintain any parent branch information when HEAD is 
detached so that we can know from which branch it is detached.
