I have been figthing lice in my daughters for about 3 years on and off. CPS was threatening to take my children because the girls just kept getting them. I have been using perscriptions from the doctor for Rid and Ovide, Rid does not work and Ovide hurts my daughters more then the headlice. I then decided to try new things and see what they do. I tried the Tea tree oil and the schools complain about the smell. I have found the answer to all my troubles.
I tak mint mouthwash and douce their heads with it. Place a shower cap on and leave on for 1 hour. Then I heat up white vinegar for 30 to 45 seconds in the microwave and dump that on their hair with the mouthwash still in. Replace the shower cap and leave on for 1 hour. Wash it all out with a regular shampoo and then condition. Leave the conditioner in for 1 hour and then rinse out. Heat kills the eggs and the vinegar losens the glue on the eggs. When you take the shower cap off the head after using the mouth wash please wash the shower cap because the lice will be all over the inside of it.
I hope this works for you because it does for me and my daughters. If you want to prevent them from getting it again after they are clean, put three to four drops of Tea tree oil in Detangular spray and spray their hair every morning.

I cannot thank you enough for posting this. I have 2 daughters and this has been a nightmare, but your remedies worked after only one treatment and 2 brushes with the metal comb and I am happy to say they are completely lice and nit free! Thank you, thank you, thank you! :)


Thanks so much, just done my daughter and fingers crossed this works, i have been fighting the lice and eggs for a week now. I have tried the mouthwash before and it has worked so hopefully this time it works for good :)


Another lice repellant is rosemary oil. I'm going to add some to some conditioning spray and spray on both my girl and my boys to repel future little buggers.


So far I am not seeing anything in my hair, it definetley works very well! Thank you so much, I really appreciate your hard work in finding such a wonderful remedy!

I'm going to try this. I have been fighting this to long. Makes me feel like a bad mom, but they just won't go away. Thanks for the info. Have a great day!


I was reading what you wrote. I will be trying that out tonight and tomorrow. What kind of shampoo/conditioner did you use? I see where a lot of people use 'Coconut' Do you still have to use the metal comb. I have been battling this for years now. It seems that only 1 daughter and myself get it. I will def repost how it all goes. Thank you so much for the advise.
