simply by going through some blogs on net about home remedies for lice i got to know Neem extract is the ultimate solution for any lice. i used it for my daughter.It is the best poison for these insects, and none of them can escape from it. Paste Neem leaves and adds it to the oil you use to oil your hair. After applying it, all through your head wrap the hair with a shower cap. Next day wash it off to get the best results. It is the best ways to get rid of head lice.Camphor has a strong smell which helps the lice to flee from your head. So, add some cubes of camphor to the oil you use.

As a pediatrician I've found a small device that can find head lice nits before and after treatment. It's a handheld device with magnification called Ughbug Bedbug detector (best for lice). My patients get it on Amazon. My patients really like it.

There is a small transmittable bug that I get infested with on a regular basis. It is small and quick. When I hug someone (and I am a natural hugger), I sometimes notice getting itchy after a few minutes. They like heat of the face. A facial itchiness, noticed especially near the eye, brow, nose or cheek, sometimes later in the scalp. Then I know I got cooties. A non scientific observation is that a shower will get rid of em. But when I handle the clothes, I can feel em jump on my arms. They will invest the bed, and are a very stubborn, lightweight annoyance, but left untended, after about a week, their multiple nips of my hide at night keep me awake and fretting.

These leave individual red bites on the face, love to live in bedding, yet are not bedbugs, (can't see em) and jump or are really quick. Quarantine (bag clothes till laundry) and cleanliness is the solution.

Vacuuming fabric, like chairs, carpet, bed, heating pillows in the shower stall with a blow dryer, washing linens regularly will reduce them to disappearance stage, but must be kept up for a month or their kids come back...persistent buggers.

Please don't hug when you are itchy. I observe that newly Invested people will scratch at their scalps or faces suddenly, like fleas are attacking, but more experienced folks will scratch their hair, or wipe away from their faces the motion of the critters,

I know that with my long, thick, wavy hair most treatments don't work as well so i decided to try something with the same idea. I used one bottle of the strongest gorilla snot i could find and pushed the gel almost INTO my scalp the hair for about 2-3 inches plus my scalp were completely "saturated" and covered by the gel...Then i attempted to get what i could from then on covered in gel also but as i have REALLY long hair i didn't get it all, which was fine as i rolled it into a bun where the semi-un-coated parts of hair were at the very center. I put a bout an inch or so of the gorrilla snot gel around my hairline then I put a bag over my head and pretty much just left part of my neck and my face out before adding saran wrap around it to where JUST my face was visible. Left it in for about an hour with a clean beanie over my giant cone-head creation(Optional but to make sure it doesn't move you can also put tape around the edges). After the waiting and going about my normal activities i used a cheap lemon/citrus dish soap to lather completely soap ball my hair and rinsed it out. When i rinsed it out i scratched a bit along my scalp under the water and towel dried just to make sure it wasn't crazy wet. The end of my hair were completely covered with about a layer of scalp skin,lice, and nits!(Optional) Ok before you reach for the lice combs... reach for the petroleum jelly and cover just your scalp and maybe, at most, a half inch to an inch of hair. Let it sit for a minute or so and then start combing it out, preferably with a metal lice comb. Honestly... just use anything to make the tangles easier to handle and only coat the scalp. You can do this everyday to make sure they are gone but... after one or two treatments I'm happy. If you cant get the nits out on the scalp, try making a mixture of rubbing alcohol, nail polish remover, and spic and span(any antibacterial cleaning substance spray)- Equal parts alcohol and the remover then just about a cap or 2 second count for spic and span. Spray the roots of your hair and sit for 5-10 minuted with hair up and rinse... It should be easier after a bit of conditioner or petroleum jelly then comb immediately after haha! Get those bugs out! Good luck everyone! If you need help you can email me at gamzeekat1@gmail.com

My 3 year old daughter came home with head lice. After about 2 weeks of picking and picking I was so tired of it. I went to the store and bought original Listerine and a bottle of white vinegar. Mixed the 2 together and sprayed it on her head and let her sit for about an hour. I washed her hair with Cetaphil face wash and coconut shampoo and fine combed her hair. I then blow dried her hair and say under a lamp to pick out the dead nits. It works like a charm! They were all either dead or about to die! Will now use this solution for the next time!

My grandchildren treated their head lice twice with over the counter medications. But they weren't sure the nits were gone. So, on the advice of friends, they bought this Ughbug Bedbug Detector which has uv light and magnification. Using this, they darkened the room and found the kids still had lots of nits attached to their hair and they easily removed them all. End of problem!

When I was a kid I used to treat head lice with just a thin comb (or suyod as we call it in the Philippines). It took forever to get rid of the lice. My friend recommended that I try Licealiz Head Lice Treatment Shampoo. With just one wash of Licealiz, my daughter felt instantly relieved of the constant itching because of lice. I did wash her hair a few more times to make sure that all her head lice were gone. Really great treatment though and it works just like an ordinary shampoo. :)

My friends recommended a really good and non-toxic head lice treatment shampoo called Licealiz.

I used Licealiz for about a week on my kids and it worked wonders! The only shame is that I never knew about this brand when I myself was still a kid battling with head lice.

I used it twice a week and once a week for prevention as instructed on the label. I highly recommend it! :)

I got lice from a home health client. Had a horrible time trying to get rid of them. Dyeing my hair did make them go away for a time but they always came back. I found that dousing my hair with vodka.... putting on a shower cap and letting it sit overnight finally got rid of them for good. I also use a good metal comb. The comb was not enough for me to get rid of them but it certainly helped. It was the vodka that really knocked then out. I used maybe 2 cups it as I have shoulder length hair.
