Head Lice Home Remedy Comments

1 Comment for the Head Lice Home Remedy


Ok so here I am at work. My head had been itching for a a day or so and I couldn't figure out why. At first I thought it was where I had been working and starting sweating. I was sitting at my desk and so I took a piece of copy paper and vigorously scratched my head.....the results were not what I wanted, I have no idea where these buggers are coming from. I got home from work late and decided to google home remedies. After reading some of the things listed I started looking for some of these items in my house. I didn't have alcohol (except for the kind you drink), fresh out of tea tree oil which I use on my dogs, but I ran across some nail polish remover, yes nail polish remover. It's about 12:30 at night so I began to pour the remover on my hair and comb with a nit comb. Oh my goodness, I would have never dreamed that would've come out of my hair! I wouldn't suggest using it on children because it did get a little warm especially when I began to rinse it with hot water, I had touse very cool water to rinse. I should've followed with anti itch dandruff shampoo, buti used my regular shampoo. I haven't seen any more of those nasty things! My husband came to bed and said 'what in the world are you doing'. I told him and his reply was ' what if your hair falls out'? I told him I'd be rid of those things for sure then and I'd go get me a wig, not to worry I still have the same amount of hair I had when I went to sleep.
