You should add 10-12 drops of tea tree oil to your bottles of shampoo and conditioner for starters.

The doctor prescribed my children a oral medication called Stromectol. You take a certain amount of pills on the first day and then 8 days later then you take the remainder. The amount of pills is based on weight. they really worked well.

The best home remedy for headlice is Cetaphil. To treat lice, Cetaphil skin cleanser is applied liberally to the hair and scalp. Use a blow dryer after application. (It will form a hard shell on the hair.) Leave the hardened Cetaphil on the hair overnight and shampoo it out the next morning. All the lice should be dead (Pediatrics, Sept. 2004). The procedure can be repeated a week later, if needed.

In addition to avoiding toxic chemicals, this 'shrink-wrap' method that suffocates the lice eliminates the need to comb out the nits by hand, a tedious procedure for both parents and children.
