50 Comments for the Head Lice Home Remedy


After spending a small fortune on OTC products such as Nix and Rid, and after pulling out nits night after night and still watching my daughter scratch, I got desperate. I had nightmares of lice infesting the whole house and all the bedding and clothes. So I read all the home remedies and after being as confused and uncertain after the readings as before I chose to do the most aggressive and fastest remedy without having to invest in another small fortune. We bought a gallon of kerosene, took our daughter in the back yard, sat her on a chair and began pouring it over every inch of her hair and scalp. After about 5 minutes she was wailing, and performing and yelling that her skin burned. We took her inside, rinsed it off and then covered her hair in Dawn dishwashing liquid. The smell was so strong from the kerosene and it was sort of oily as well so after getting a great lather we washed it well and then covered her hair in conditioner. Well the hollering went on so loudly and for so long we rinsed that off and she still was complaining about the burning. We filled up the tuba and she lay down in COLD water to finish rinsing and cooling off her burning head. The result: a clean and nit free scalp. That was three hours ago and have not seen her scratch once. Hallelujah for kerosene! But she made us promise to never put that on her again.

You should go to jail! People like you dont need kids at all.




I hear banjos...


I think its terrible how people judge you and I have heard that kerosene has been used for a hundred years to get rid of kid screamed and cried and all I did was put olive oil on her cry I don't think your a criminal that's all I wanted to say


Wow im blown away that a parent would actually even think to try something so stupid! Shave her fucking head before u do something like that!!!!!!!!!!!!Holy Shit


I KNOW these critters cause all of us to take leave of our senses for a bit. HOWEVER--IYou should be very thankful that your name amd address or email are not shown here. Otherwise you would be reported for child abuse right this minute. It is one thing to try odd home remedies on ourselves but to put kerosene on a childs scalp --->IS< child abuse!


I had kerosene used on me too when i was a kid, yes i does burn, but it did work. Afterwards it was washed with coconut shampoo and conditioner in cool water to help take out the burning feeling. It shouldn't be one of those things used to get rid of lice on a kid though, even though it does have a good outcome. There are many other alternatives that can help that are burn free. No child services should be called, nobody is a perfect parent and nobody knows what everything will result to if tried. Using kerosene has been around for a long time.


My mom used this on all of her kids and it does work. I never recalled it burning my head that much... no more than the rid did. She put a live louse in a cap full of rid and it crawled out. She put one in a cap full of kerosene on it died instantly! Most parents did use kerosene as a productive lice killer when I was a kid in school... BUT back then PARENTS actually DISCIPLINED THEIR CHILDREN and TAUGHT THEM GOOD MORALS!!!


lol thats great!


Child abuse.
