FYI I just left work because I caught lice from one of my kids, I came onto this site to find remedies. I bought some Nix but decided I wanted to try a home remedy first. I had baby oil on hand so I flipped my head over the sink and began pouring the oil on my head starting from the back. When I reached the top of my head I noticed something fell out if my hair and into the sink. It was a huge lice lying on it's back. I continued to finish and wrapped my head in a bag. I decided to put the bugger on a paper towel in a plastic zip lock bag to show my boyfriend because he probably wouldn't believe how big the thing was unless I showed him. After I finished wrapping my head in the bag I decided to read more on this site, it has been two hours since I've put that lice in the bag. I went to use the restroom and while I was washing my hands I looked down at the bag and I swear I saw it moving. I took a closer look and realized it was still alive!!! So baby oil will definitely immobilize them for a bit so be aware!! I will be washing my hair in Dawn dishwashing soap and following it with coconut Suave conditioner and comb religiously. I will also whip out my CHI flat iron in hopes of burning the nits And just grease my hair for days. I will post results!!
