A Printhead is a unique component of printers that is able to place thousands of ink drops of different sizes precisely where they’re needed. Nowadays, printers are relatively small, and it might be difficult to observe their internal parts. Printheads are quite different from ink cartridges. Ink cartridges operate as a storage unit, while the printhead gets instructions from the printer as text or image, then receives the ink from the cartridge, and transfers it onto the paper.

Thermal printheads utilize wafer heating components for fast superheating and vaporizing a small volume of ink. This ink expands and passes through the nozzle on the printhead. 

It isn’t required to replace the printhead each time the ink needs to be replaced. The only time you need to replace the printhead is when the print quality is poor, and cleaning the head doesn’t solve the problem.
