Redirects in Silverstripe

I am trying to build a Faceboop app in Silverstripe. The problem is that pages redirect with Header("Location: xxxx"); I get a redirect loop in FB, because a FB app is in a iframe and redirects need to be sent to _top. To do this I would need to redirect with javascript: top.location.href = 'xxx'; I see that all redirects in Silverstripe are heandled in SS_HTTPResponse in the core of the Sapphire.
What would be the most elegant solution for me to implement the redirect to target "_top" problem?

kind regards, Jana

Could you perhaps explain abit more about why you end up in a redirect loop?
If you're looking to redirect in PHP then you have Director::redirect() for that.
