After two failed attempts with lice shampoo I interpreted a combination of others sugestions, and the reaults were truly unreal!!! I started by laying my daughter down on the counter so her head was hanging over the kitchen sink. I saturated her hair with straight vinegar and put a plastic shopping bag over her hair pulled tightly and secured in the back with a hair tie. I let that sit on her hair for roughly two hours wile she played. I then laid her down again and throughly rinsed her hair. Once her hair was rinsed I lathered her up with Palmolive dish washing liquid. Rinsed then repeated. With her head still over the sink I squeezed the excess water and applied alot of baby oil, more than enough to.saturate the hair, rinsed it quickly so it was not so oily and towel dried, then immediatley comed through with a nit comb. I WAS IN SHOCK! After two months of battling with this and only ever finding two tiny bugs, I was so surprised to see more than 40
dead lice! It was like I was only combing thru her hair and the lice were sliding out with out me searching. Not only that but the eggs also. I just cant seem how after all this time i was missing them. The Vinegar killed the lice and the plastic bag was to keep the from running. The Palmolive dish liquid breaks up the glue that holds the hair and egg together. I swear by this and If she ever ends up with lice again.... I already know my solution, first times a charm!

I found nits in my daughters hair today but the only thing i'm concerned about is using a shower cap on her as she's only 2. Would this work just as well if the cap is not used?

Been battling these gross bugs sinse the end of Juanuary, and have amounted quite a bill in useless products, washing everything over, and over again at the launry mat, and getting nowhere! Every time it seems I'm getting close they come back within hours all over again. I heard from others that vinegar, dish soap, and tree tree oil work wonders, but am in the process of trying it now. I just want the ?@&! things gone! Let you know how it goes after home treatment, in a few days. Fingers crossed!

I have been battling lice for almost 3 months on my 9 year old daughter. We have tried everything! I finally found this suggestion about 10 days ago. I tried it and after 3 very long months they are gone! Then I went out and bought some tea tree oil and put about 12 drops in each bottle of shampoo and conditioner. My friend has been using tea tree oil for years on her girls and they have never had lice. So this suggestion was a perfect treatment and the oil is the preventative. Thank you o much for sharing this remedy!
