7 Comments for the Head Lice Home Remedy

So, I've had head lice for a little over six months now. It's horrible and it's embarrassing. I tried all the OTC stuff and it never works. The problem is that the lice build up an immunity to the drug and the eggs that are laid are born with the immunity, too. Natural home remedies are always the best. I mean, who likes putting chemicals in their hair? Not me. So, this is what I have for y'all:

-Strip your bed sheets off and put on new ones. Steam the infected ones, or wash it in hot water. If you don't have a steamer, I suggest you get one! Steam every surface your head touches. Afterwards, change your pillowcase every few days and keep re-steaming.

-Gather up and combs, brushes, hair clips, ect. and stick them into a pot of boiling water.

-If you have a child, steam their toys.

-If you just got lice, I recommend trying the OTC treatments first. Some have it worse than others and one treatment is all they need. Plus, it usually comes with the comb.

-It doesn't matter how many treatments you do, if you don't comb out the lice and their eggs, the treatments will not work. Always comb them out! What I did was when I was just on the computer or watching television, anytime I got an itch, I'd start combing.

-Okay, here is the 'recipe' for my home remedy treatment. Brush out any tangles in your hair. Sit on a white towel (so you can see any lice that may have fallen out) and comb out as much lice and eggs as you can. Get in the shower and wash your hair with Dawn dish soap. Keep it in for as long as you can. Rinse it with the hottest water you can handle. Pour in a combination of any mouthwash with alcohol, and hand sanitizer. If you have any open sores on your scalp, it will burn a little bit. Do not rinse this out. Wrap your hair up in a plastic cap and keep it on for a minimum of two hours. The longer, the better! Afterwards, straighten your hair. The heat from the straightener will pop the nits and kill some of the lice. Hair dryers do not deliver the same amount of heat.

Depending on how bad the infestation is, it could take a few days, or a few weeks to kill them all. Just keep adding the mixture of mouthwash and hand sanitizer and keep combing!

Lice cant survive without a numan host. It takes them 2 weeks to dye off the head. So i went to my mothers house and was confined to the guest room for two weeks and did all my treatments there. Then when while cleaning my head and did all the lice treating of the room Anderson bathroom every day (much smaller area to work with). Then i returned home to a lice free house. My mother then quantined the bedroom and bathroom for two weeks to be safe. Everything worked perfectly!

If it took you 6 months to get rid of lice you need to go to rehab and get off the crack or whatever hard drug you are on.

My kids picked up lice from school, and we've had a heck of a time getting rid of them. Three months and over $150 in products later, we once again thought they were gone, but were wrong. They develop immunities to the medications to kill them just as people can to a medicine over time. We've strtuggled with getting them gone and keeping them that way, and I can assure you, neither my 9, 8, or 5 year olds are on crack! Maybe you should look at your own life before you go making assumptions about others.

That is a HORRIBLE thing to say...... Lice are NOT easy to get rid of.. its a vicious cycle. Anyone can catch lice from anywhere, and once you have em.. its a pain in the wrong place to get rid of. Whoever posted that horrible comment needs to shut their mouths before they get a case of lice that keeps recurring and wont leave them alone.
