What home remedy for killing head lice really works?

head liceGetting Rid of Head Lice

It is great you want to use a home remedy. The ONLY safe way to get rid of head lice permanently is to use a totally natural alternative to the chemical preparations then use prevention methods such as hairspray and tea tree mixed with water in a spray bottle every day to ensure they never return. I agree with the other, tea tree oil is great. But it should only be used as a prevention method, it will not kill head lice and eggs. It will only repel them.

Suffocation is an effective method where oil based products (i.e.: conditioner) are used to block the breathing holes and kill the live lice. The real trick though is to find natural products that will kill both the live lice and their eggs in one fast effective treatment.

Looking for an Effective Head Lice Treatment

Remedies containing Neem Oil are known to be highly effective as Neem interrupts the growth and reproduction of the head louse. Neem’s insecticidal properties are widely recognized now and the oil is commonly available at your local health food store.

INSTRUCTIONS: After reading all of the remedies for head lice it seemsthat there is a pattern running through all of them and that is any
mixture that is thick enough to cut offair supply, whether that be mayo, olive oil or thick conditioner for head lice. I dovote for the white vinegar for detaching the nits, and alsotea tree as a further deterrant.Tthanks to this site and the advicefound here, we are head lice nit and louse free after a few very frustrating months.Personally I used the mayo for head lice as I had no wine vinegar for head lice in the house andwanted to combat the head lice problem instantly.

NAME_OF_REMEDY: Head lice
INGREDIENTS: cooking/salad oil
vinegar
tea tree oil
nit comb
shampoo
towels
INSTRUCTIONS: This is an easy remedy for head lice to rid you of those unwanted
pests. Messy but very effective as head lice treatment!
First, add a couple of drops of tea tree oil to your head lice shampoo, this
works as a preventive measure from further attacks of head lice.Head Lice should be treated immediately.

Ok now to the messy part:
Use equal measures of cooking/salad oil and vinegar for head lice apply to dry hair,
massage through hair covering entire head.
Wrap in towel leave for 15 min.
After 15 min is up brush hair then use head lice nit comb through hair, this
should be really easy because of the oil.
Rinse head lice comb after each brush through.
When finished hop into shower and head lice shampoo out (with the tea tree oil
added head lice shampoo).
You may find you have residue oil left in the hair and it may take a
couple of extra washes to wash out the head lice, but this is fine.

Don’t forget to clean/soak all brushes and head lice combs, vaccum floors, strip
all linen etc and hot wash to kill lingering pests like head lice.

I have tried this method of head lice treatment twice now and its brilliant, once when my
daughter was 7years old and again about a month ago,
she’s now almost 11years old and had head lice. So yeah I think it really works for getting rid of head lice.

INGREDIENTS: listerine/white vinegar
INSTRUCTIONS: Just got to tell you! LISTERINE so far has worked! We tried over the counter stuff, we tried prescriptions,we have beendealing with this since November of last year!We are SOOOO SICK of it we didn’t know what to do. We saturated withlisterine and use a shower cap for 2 hours. The head lice were dead in thecaps and we saw them in the sink.The head lice even fell out when we were combing thru before we saturated withwhite vinegar. I am going to spray once a week with the listerine and just leave it in for head lice treatment. My husband is so sick of washing the bed linens and spraying the furniture because of head lice. Head Lice are rampant. We are praying we have it under control now. I never had thisproblem until we moved to FL from VA. I found out that head lice is in spanish moss and my girls go to daycare where there is moss every where. I just hope it works to keep head lice away!

INSTRUCTIONS: My dughter has very long thick hair and we had suffered head lice for six months, buyingall the chemist remedies for head lice,with no effect. My mother bought a book containing household remedies and it said: saturate the hair with listerine mouthwash and cover with a shower cap. Leave for 2 hours then shampoo in the normal way. We did this and it killed all the head lice immediately. The saturate the hair with white vinegar and comb with a nit comb and the vinegar destroys the glue that the head lice fix the nits to the hair with. Just comb them out. Believe me – it works for head lice!!

INGREDIENTS: Tea Tree Oil Shampoo and conditioner
INSTRUCTIONS: Hi there, We have a very high incident of head lice in our schools in my community. It is a constant battle here. My daughter seems to get head lice every year.Recently my daughter got head lice again! Then I got them as well, we battled and battled, I had used tea tree oil shampoo in the past and thought, I will try this again. I went to a hairdresser supplier and bought a good shampoo and conditioner for head lice, I also bought a teatree oil conditionar exfoliate for the scalp (WOW it was great), (Paul Mitchell is the
brand I used) I used this ever day and scrubbed my head really good with a towel after to dry it, and look for head lice on the towel, after about the 4th day I did not find antoher head lice, or nit. We use the tea tree oil all the time now even thought there are no more head lice in my home. I found that it works better then any chemical treatments. It is worth the price. Hint: You can also buy tea tree oil and add it to your own shampoo and conditioner.
Best of Luck.
P.S. Vinager gets rid of the glue that holds the nits, that way it is easier to pick them off.

After catching head lice in the 2nd grade, my mother took me to a salon andgave me a perm. My hair was long, all the way down my back and she wasn’t
about to cut it all off. I got a perm once a year after that and nevercaught head lice again. I highly recommend perming your daughters hair if you can’t bring yourself to cut it. As I grew older, in Jr. High, I startedto color my hair. This too blasted the little buggers. I haven’t seen
them ever again!

INGREDIENTS: HAIRSPRAY (GOOD OLD CHEAP AQUA-NET, LOL)
INSTRUCTIONS: WHEN MY SON WAS IN HEADSTART THERE WAS AN OUTBREAK OF HEAD LICE. MY SON WAS THE ONLY ONE IN HIS CLASS TO NOT GET THEM. WHEN I DISCUSSED THIS WITH HIS STYLIST SHE SAID IT WAS DUE TO THE FACT THAT HE HAS A FLATTOP AND HIS HAIR IS COATED IN HAIRSPRAY EVERY DAY. IT NOT ONLY ALLOWS NO PURCHASE FOR THE HEAD LICE, IT ALSO REQUIRES HIS HAIR TO BE WASHED DAILY YET ANOTHER THING THAT HEAD LICE DO NOT LIKE. MY DAUGHTER HAS LONG, LONG HAIR, WE DO NOT USE AS MUCH HAIRSPRAY BUT HER HAIR IS WASHED DAILY AND ONCE A WEEK I USE TEA TREE SHAMPOO JUST FOR GOOD MEASURE. 6 YEARS LATER IN THE PUBLIC SCHOOL SYSTEM WEHAVE YET TO HAVE TO DEAL WITH HEAD LICE MAKING IT HOME AND DEALING WITH THE EMOTIONAL TRAUMA THAT IT IS NOT THEIR FAULT.
HOPE IT HELPS!

Mayonaise works as head lice remedy because it has oils and vinegar in it.
The head lice nits have a hole in the end of them that provides oxygen, that eventually bursts open like a popcorn kernel; …the oil smothers it. So actually, vaseline type products are best.Products that are made for ethnic hair are loaded with petrolateum and smell better.White vinegar/water mix at 50/50 under a shower cap for 20-40 minutes neutralizes the glue that the head lice use to wrap their eggs around the hair shaft.I used the ethnic hair products and had my daughters hair braided for several days and then followed it with the cider mixture. Her long, thick, blonde hair was to her butt, and never needed cutting.Special note: A louse life cycle repeats in 8 days, but the eggs remaining on the head generally hatch in 5 days…so waiting a full week to use treatments a second time is too long. I got my reference from the encyclopaedia brittanica on the life cycle. I’m sure NIX knows this, but if they advertized it, they would lose a brand product.I know someone that used “OFF” for bugs products and swears by them.Skin-so-soft is oily and repells all sorts of insects!! Ants will not cross a threshold where this was sprayed, even months later…and I used it to kill a nest of carpenter ants…they dropped on contact!

Country of Remedy = USA

Ingredients = Vinegar,Tea Tree Oil, Cooking oil(veg)Rinse
Desenex Extra STrength Shampoo/ Coal Tar Shampoo like Nutragena
Plastic caps
Thin Towels,
Head Lice combs (Metal)
Regular extra thick conditioners for head lice.
Instructions = Head Lice Treatments that actually work.

Important. Over the counter products/ head lice shampoos DO NOT WORK!Just shampooing is not enough for head lice. Must pick out every single egg from strands of hair. This must be done daily.What helps remove the head lice nits/head lice eggs from the hair??Since the louse attaches the egg with a glue. The only thing that is found to help loosen the glue is White vinegar.To kill the louse or head lice and possibly some of the eggs/nits you can mix Coal Tar head lice shampoo such as Nutragena’s or the generic brands. With some Desenex Xtra Strength Shampoo. Put on the hair DRY. Mix equal parts.Wrap in plastic cap and set for at least 30 minutes. Comb with metal lice come that comes with worthless Head Lice Shampoos. You can also buy them at Sav-on by themselves.Comb, comb, comb! And keep rinsing the head lice comb.** Then rinse hair with white vinegar solution, see below for mixtureYou also need some Cooking oil and some Tee tree Oil. Mix equal parts of Cooking oil and Vinegar and then add 20 to 30 drops of Tee Tree oil.Saturate the scalp and hair. Then head lice comb a lot to try to remove some eggs. Then wrap hair in a warm towel that is damp, then place cap over the towel. And let it set for hour and half.Then comb, comb, comb again. Rinse and remove with Dawn Dishwashing liquid. Very, Very- important. MUST be DAWN, this works wonders to remove the oil from hair.Then you can condition the hair and scalp again with a thick moiturizing conditioner and head lice comb some more.Then each day you must blow dry the ON HIGH HEAT. The heat helps kill them as well.Another tool that helps is a flattening Iron on the hair the heat should help. Hint get as close to the scalp as humanly possible.I was able to get rid of head lice in 4 days. But you need to continue with the shampoo for about 2 weeks. Just to insure it’s gone.Blow dry the hair every day!This was the second time we got them in 2 years. I will never use anything else again. It took me over a month last year. This was amazing!

——————————————————————————–

When my family lived in Arkansas, we delt with head lice all the time. All the over-the-counter head lice shampoos didn’t work. Then one day a teacher gave me this recipe for head lice shampoo and I’ve used it ever since. I keep a prepared bottle in my bathroom for the “just-in-case”.

Head Lice Shampoo

Small Amount
2 tablespoons Tea Tree Oil
6 ounces Dawn Dishwashing Liquid (Dawn ONLY)
2 ounces white vinegar

Medium Amount
2 ounces Tea Tree Oil
12.5 ounces Dawn Dishwashing Liquid (Dawn ONLY)
4 ounces white vinegar

Large Amount
4 ounces Tea Tree Oil
25 ounces Dawn Dishwashing Liquid (Dawn ONLY)
8 ounces white vinegar

Mix the three ingredients in a large squeeze bottle, such as an empty dish soap bottle. Use as regular shampoo, leave on for about 5 minutes before rinsing. Use conditioner to soften hair and keep dandruff down. Tea Tree Oil may cause some dandruff, but the bugs will be gone. May use every day, and bugs are usually gone within a week. Be VERY CAREFULL not to get in eyes or mouth.

Ingredients = Cetaphil- gentle skin cleanser
white vinegar full strength
Instructions = My daughter is eight years old and we’ve been battling with her head lice for months. I’ve tried almost everything that money can buy and I’ll tell you, if she was a boy, she would deffinitely be bald! It’s been almost torment for the past few months for my daughter and myself. Then I read in the Woman World’s Magazine about a home remedy by a dermatologist for head lice. It works!!!Items you need: Cetaphil(mine was purchased at Wal-Mart), white vinegar, small or medium bottle that has a tip or comes to a point(such as those plastic ketchup or mustard bottles you can buy that come empty or something similar, this is optional- it does make it alot easier), spray bottle, a few towels, comb(s), hair clips, and slightly damp paper towels for disposal of dead nits.I actually used an old bottle that had hair dye in it where I just colored my Mom’s hair that day before. I just clean it out real good. You’ll need to place a towell around your child’s neck.First, fill the bottle with the Cetaphil. Then, section the hair off in four parts with clips. Start at the bottom first, try to layer out about an inch at a time starting at the roots. Make sure you saturate the roots real good. Then do the remaining hair. Then go to the next quarter of hair. When all of hair is done, go back over it and make sure it’s completely covered. Now, section off hair again and blow dry. I used a comb to help dry hair and hand towel to hold around ears so not to burn as bad. This drying took me about thirty minutes. I washed her hair twice and then towel dried it. I cleaned out that same little bottle and put full strength white vinegar in it and also in a spray bottle. You need a clean thick towel and a hand towel for the forehead.I had my child lean her head back while I applied the vinegar from the bottle, so it wouldn’t get in her eyes, ears, or face. I used the spray bottle for the back of her hair. I completely saturated her hair all over. She complained that it burned some, just like with the other treatments. I left it on forabout ten minutes. I washed her hair twice then put conditioner on it. It is truly amazing how awesome this has worked. The lice are GONE! The nits are even dead and they SLIDE right out, it’s unreal! One more thing, the combs that comes with the head lice treatments that you buy aren’t any good at all- metal or not, USE YOUR FINGERNAILS to pull them out!

Ingredients: Mayonaise
hair gel
water
black walnut extract
Instructions: Saturate the hair w/mayonaisse and cover with a plastic bag. I use a regular grocery bag, wrap it around my daughter’s hair, clipping in place with a regular hair clip. Leave in approximately one hour, heating w/a blow dryer (or sunshine on a really warm day) for at least 5 minutes. Rinse out the mayo then saturate hair w/regular, inexpensive hair gel to comb out nits, bugs, and eggs (please note nits are visible because they are hatched eggs; eggs are NOT usually visible to the naked eye because they turn the color of the hair, esp if it’s dark. Rinse the comb periodically into a cup which is white inside so you can see what you’re actually combing out. You may have to change the water often, but it’s worth it, esp if you have any trouble seeing at all. You can apply the mayo daily to keep the head lice free and/or apply the
gel nightly after the shower. My daughter’s hair is very thick so I would apply the gel after her shower then part the hair in 2 sections and braid it and let her sleep in it. This killed any that hatched from head lice eggs I missed. Be sure to do other suggested additional cleanings like vaccuuming, washing the bed covers, etc.You can saturate possibly infested surfaces with disinfectant Lysol spray; ie. car seats, toys, pillows, beds, carpets, rugs, other furniture, cushions, etc. I found the best time to do this was when we could be out of the sprayed area for at least hour to allow ample time for drying. To repel lice, I have begun to use black walnut extract and water. A small bottle of black walnut extract can be found at an herbal store and is usually expensive, but you only need a small amount. In 6 months, we’ve only used 2 bottles of the mixture (that includes me using it to wet my hair for styling) You can purchase the best water spray bottles at a beauty supply store (like Sally’s), the others tend to leak. Add 15-20 drops of black walnut extract to 20 oz of water. I spray 2 squirts into her hair each day just prior to possible exposure like at school, church, etc. You can lift the hair and spray underneath or on top. It’s best not to overspray or the hair may become oily.

head liceHead Lice Problem

Hi – My daughter who is 5 just had head lice and we found the coolest thing at Walmart that I would like to share with you. She has very long hair and I refused to cut it. We tried Nix numerous times and the head lice just kept coming back…not sure if she was re-exposed or if we just didn’t get all the head lice nits (even though we spent over 6 hours picking head lice at her head).
So I tried numerous things, mayo treatment for head lice…vinager bath for head lice…nothing seemed to work. So we got some Tea Tree oil shampoo which was on your website and will always use that from now on and then found this head lice comb.
The head lice Comb is called LiceGuard Robi Comb — Electronic Lice Comb It states that it “Kills Lice WITHOUT Chemicals”You use it on dry hair. It takes a AA battery and you switch it on and it “will electronically kill lice while being harmless to the user.”It WORKS!!!! YEAH!!!The comb is well worth the $22.00 I spent on it. Please tell others about it! Thank you for all of your help. You provide an amazing amount of helpful information! You are an angel!

Ingredients: NIX, olive oil, lice comb
Instructions: My daughter had beautiful long hair and came home with a horrible case of head lice. We treated her head the standard way with the over the counter NIX or RID, following all instructions. The next day we put on the olive oil, wrapped her head with plastic wrap and let it sit for 4 hours. (it was messy, vasiline would work as well without
the mess). This suffocates any remaining live bugs. After the time you wash that out with standard shampoo. No real need to comb it out..if bugs were there they are now dead and will rinse out. Then we searched her hair 2x a day for nits…a nit makes a bug!! a bug makes 6 more a day!! We simply removed these by hand with fingernails. On the tenth day after the orignial treatment we reapplied the olive oil. (Ten days allows for all left over nits to have haatched but does not give them time to reproduce) We found no nits or lice in her hair. (If you find more bugs, you missed some nits. Keep repeating the oilve oil every 2 days until clear).THis is a safe alternative to the chemicals in the lice medicines. Be sure to search hair with vengance looking for nits, once they are gone you will be ok. Also, dont forget to clean all hair brushes etc (boil them…or just buy new). Do all laundry in hot water…if it can not be laundered in hot water, place in dryer on high heat for 30 minutes. Vaccum house well, especially couches, under beds, car seats etc. You can buy the sprays to kill the bugs but this gets expensive. Adult lice die within 55 hours without being on a human head, baby lice (nymphs) die within 24 hours, and eggs will not hatch in temperatures less than 64 degrees (turn the air on or heat down) and if they do…they will die within 24 hours. Good LUCK!

Ingredients: Head Lice comb (perferably metal!)
Tobacco
Plastic wrap and/or wet towel
Hair products in general (prevention)

Instructions: My daughter was plagued with head lice repeatedly… They just loved her and she got head lice several times and the store stuff really doesn’t work well. This is what we learned:First, if you can cut the hair as short as the person is willing (for guys shaving fixes the head lice problem). Second, wash all bedding and make a tobacco wash of a few handfuls of tobacco in a large pot of water boiled and strained. Put it somewhere to cool while you do the next step. Next, head lice comb out every head lice egg and bug you can. I do this buy dividing the hair into four sections, pinning up the sections separately. Then, starting at the bottom of the section, divide out 1/4″ sections at a time and pulling the comb through it. I also look at though the hair in the light to see any I may have missed. I often use my nails to get the eggs that the comb misses (they work better anyway). Do this until every inch of the hair has been gone through. This is really the most important step in removing  head lice for any treatment, be thorough!!!! Now take the tobacco wash and thoroughly soak the hair in it. Let it stay on for about 10-15 minutes (plastic wrap and a warm wet towel can help with this.) Rinse. Repeat in one week. Run the head lice comb through the hair (making sure to get as close to the scalp as possible) daily for a total of two weeks. (Not the whole dividing thing and all that, just run it through making sure to get the whole head.) Really, just comb, comb, comb! That is the most important thing. Two weeks is a pain, but it’s easy after the first one.I have also heard that rinsing the hair in vinegar after each shower helps kill the glue the head lice eggs use to stick onto the hair.may help as well.

Ingredients: tea tree oil and olive oil
rinse with vinegar
head lice comb
Instructions:
Mix 1/2 cup olive oil with 2 or 3 tablespoons tea tree oil. Apply to hair and rub into scalp. Leave on hair for 30 min. to 1 hr. Wash hair to remove oil. Rinse hair with vinegar (the vinegar loosens the “glue” holding the eggs and nits on your hair). Wait 5 to 10 mins and rinse hair with hot water. Repeat vinegar rinse. Always comb hair out with a head lice comb to remove any remaining nits.
Wash bed linens, towels and clothes. Vacuum mattresses and fruniture. Don’t forget childrens stuffed animals and the car seats.Prevention of Head Lice: mix 4 drops tea tree oil with your daily shampoo and shampoo as usual.Don’t rely on the various shampoos that advertise tee tree, they don’t have enough in them.I have worked for 10 years at a large child day care center (which cares for 125 children each day).Believe me, I have a first-hand, unsolicited knowledge of head lice.But, for 7 years my family has been head lice and nit free! I contribute it to the daily tea tree oil mixed in the shampoo, each morning.

——————————————————————————–

We have only had to deal with head lice once, that was enough! And I went balistic. Anyway, I got a list from the Dr. of things to do in the house. On that list was the use of Lysol brand disinfectant spray instead of the more expensive lice spray for spraying furniture, carpets, pillows, ect. after vacuuming. It worked! To this day I vacuum furniture then spray with lysol. It also kills fleas, we have dogs and although they don’t have fleas, I take no chances.

Ingredients: Shampoo and Conditioner
Instructions: You don’t need to use all those chemicals on your precious childs head!!!! We tried and it didn’t work! Just when I was about to make a trip to the doctor for help I sat down and thought about it. The grown-ups never seem to get it. Why? Because we wash our hair more thoroughly every day. I decided to try one last thing. I personally washed and conditioned my children’s hair every single day. I would simply saturate their hair with conditioner(being sure to work it onto the scalp everywhere)(the dollar-a-bottle stuff is all you need), combed it well while the conditioner was in, then rinsed. The  head lice washed right out with the conditioner. I couldn’t believe how many bugs washed out that first time. I knew then that this was all I needed to do. Children don’t wash thier hair as well as an adult. If you know there is an outbreak in your child’s school, simply help them with hair washing for a week or so. You really don’t even have to do it every day !due to the life cycle of head lice. Just be sure to do it again when the head lice nits would be hatching(approximately 10 days). I prefer every day just to be safe.

How Do You Get Rid Of Head Lice Naturally?

Head Lice Problem

head liceI just found out that my 8 year old grandaughter has Head Lice. Does anyone know of any home remedies.

There are quite a few totally natural remedies available that readily kill Head Lice.

Suffocation is an effective method where oil based products (i.e.: mayonnaise) are used to block the breathing holes and kill the live lice. The real trick though is to find natural products that will kill both the live lice and their eggs in one fast effective treatment.

Remedies containing Neem Oil are known to be highly effective as Neem interrupts the growth and reproduction of the head louse. Neem’s insecticidal properties are widely recognized now and the oil is commonly available at your local health food store.

After the Head Lice is gone use prevention methods such as hairspray and tea tree oil mixed with water in a spray bottle every day to ensure they never return.

Feel free to check out the articles at the following site for more advice.

Good luck.

Head Lice Is A Problem

Head lice are a common, controversial and frustrating problem for parents. But the controversy isn’t only about how they got infected with Head Lice, but also revolves around how they are going to get rid of the Head Lice.

On one side of the debate are the people who believe that Head Lice have developed resistance to regular lice treatments, so that they no longer work. Other experts believe that lice resistance is not a big problem, and Head Lice treatment failures are because parents don’t remove the nits or that the child was misdiagnosed in the first place.
