Whats the best home remedy to kill head lice?
1. Work olive oil into your hair.
A common method that has proven to be successful with many is by working olive oil deep into your hair until it is thoroughly soaked in it. This will essential ensure that the lice and their nits cannot breathe so they will be dead when you get up the next morning. Be sure that after applying the oil that you use a plastic wrap so that you do not get your pillow all wet when you sleep.
2. Use a metal comb that has fine teeth
You will need to purchase tooth comb that has fine teeth so you can remove all the lice and their nits but you may need the help of a friend. Do not rush this process as the last thing you want is for the infestation to spread again because of one egg so be sure to take your time. Just as an extra precaution, you may need to repeat this process a few times for up to two weeks.
3. Wash your clothes and bedding with hot water
Upon noticing an infestation of lice in your hair, you will need to place all the clothes and bedding you have used in a separate location. While these pests cannot survive for long without a host, they can easily transmit from your clothes to another individual or a house pet. It’s also recommended that you thoroughly vacuum your house including your carpet, furniture and mattress.
