Mommy's Girl

Growing up I had a minor problem with lice. 10 years or so ago over the counter treatments worked. Now a days it seems like there is no help. Even doctor visit and prescription seems to be a waste of time. Until recently my daughter caught lice. What terrible little monsters (lice are). After trying just about everything I finally went to my mother. Mom's know best BTW! She gave me a little hint and now I'm going to share it with you.. It works like a charm for most no matter how thickness of hair.
MOMS Cheap Lice Treatment:
1st: You'll need a few bottles of rubbing alcohol(enough to completely wet hair).
2nd: Shower caps (or a plastic bag).
3rd: Fine combs
4th: Dandruff shampoo (along with some conditioner).
5th: Pink Hair Lotion
NOW your ready to get rid of those (little monsters).
The treatment: Brush hair to get out tangles, comb the hair while dry to get out falling hair and to make hair really fine and what lice can fall out before ahead of time, separate hair into 2 sides (almost like pig tail for longer hair). Wet one side with alcohol fully and comb it threw hair make sure to do same with out side right after (You'll see the lice start to already fall out).
Put the hair up in a bun if you can without getting tangles, place a bag over the hair leaven less hair showing with bag tight as can be (shower caps work better), let it sit in for about 10-20 mins longer and thicker the hair the better if left in longer (but not too long). After the wait bend over the tub and shake out hair most as possible, even comb the hair with a fine comb and keep shaking here and there (There will be tons more falling out). Finally you'll want to wash hair with dandruff shampoo followed by conditioner, when drying hair with towel make sure to only use one side drying most of extra water out, comb hair threw few more times to be extra sure. Now your almost done just add the pink hair lotion to the hair the (more the better but not to much. Let hair air dry. Now your done that's it. Tip that I find. (USING THE PINK LOTION EVERY TIME YOU GET OUT BATH OR SHOWER THE LESS CHANCE YOU HAVE OF GETTING LICE AGAIN THEY HATE OILY HAIR!) It not hard and its not expensive it actually quite cheap way to get rid of lice (Don't worry to much about the eggs once their white their dead and end up falling out them selves but you can easily comb them out.) I hope this works for you as much as it works for my family after all this time and I wish you the best of luck!

My question is what about the nits? She has no lice but my daugther has ADHD and can't sit for long periods to comb out the nits will this kill them?


What is Pink hair lotion??


So so thankful for this post. When my husbands x would send the kids every other weekend, we would spend anywhere from 4 to 8 hours on the kids' hair and there were 3 kids. We found a very expensive treatment (prescription only) ovide it killed everything on the spot. That became very costly @ $100 per bottle, 1 bottle per child every other weekend. I never thought of the rubbing alcohol. Who knew? I tried it and it worked every bit as well as all that ovide. Agaain thank you.
