Anyone have any home remedies for getting rid of head lice?
Head Lice Treatment
My children were exposed to Head Lice around 4th of July and i have been checking them aleast 2 times a day since I found out. Well any when checking my daughter last night I found lice eggs. So I ran to wal-Mart and bought bedding spray,and a product called licefreee! a homepathic Pediculicid it is pharmacist recommend kills lice and the eggs and most important is free from potentially harmful pesticides and is safe for repeated applications.(Non-toxic).
I am washing everything in hot water and drying it at a hot temp. also I sprayed everything with the bedding spray. I’m sure that I’ve done a very good job and I also made sure my children didn’t have anymore eggs/nits or bugs i comb it w/a nit comb throughly. I’m just needing serious suggestion on any home remedies that you might of heard that worked or tried yourself in case they ever return. also if you have any suggestions on how/or what to use to keep from getting them. Thanks alot ahead of time. This is very frustrating

The only way to keep from getting them is to stay away from people who are infested — and I mean Good luck with that. Live, learn, use the nit comb periodically.
