5 Comments for the Head Lice Home Remedy

first off let me start by saying this is an excellent website. About a month ago I got a haircut and the lady who cut my hair did not blowdry hair after she had cut it and after that day my head got really itchy. At first I thought nothing of it but eventually I got so annoyed by scratching that I asked my mom to check my head. She found NITS, no living lice, just nits. That day she tried to kill as many as she could but didn't get them all and eventually the lice hatched and i was left with walking parasites on my head! A week ago on this website I read about the olive oil treatment and decided to try it. My mom put the oil in my head and made sure it was fully covered before the shower cap went on. I left the oil on overnight and the next morning my mom checked my head again. This time she found mostly dead lice, except one that she found that was living. After I showered and shampooed with suave coconut shampoo I blow dried my hair. After blow drying I wiped the back of my neck to find 3 dead lice! Blow drying works! So for the next few days I would blow dry my hair. I decided to repeat the treatment a week later just in case any lice were left living and before my mom put the oil in my hair she checked my head for lice again. This time she found nothing but dead nits. So moral of the story.. Olive oil and blow drying is a great combination to get rid of lice cause now i am lice free. But I would love to know how to soothe the lice bite bumps, because mine are very annoying and i always want to scratch them but they hurt.thanks for reading.

TEA TREE OIL SHAMPOO HAS ANTIBACTERIAL PROPERTIES AND WILL SOOTHE THE ITCH AND HELP IT TO ALSO HEAL UP QUICKER LOVE. TRY TO AVOID USING LEAVE IN CONDITIONERS, HAIR SERUMS, ETC FOR A LITTLE WHILE IF POSSIBLE. BUT I UNDERSTAND BEING A CHICK, GOTTA LOOK GOOD, SO IF STILL USING IT, TRY & KEEP IT AWAY FROM THE HAIR ROOTS AND SCALP. hAIR DRYERS IN PARTICULAR WILL DRY OU THE SCALP AS WELL, WHICH WILL IRRITATE THE BITES MORE.. GOODLUCK :)
