16 Comments for the Head Lice Home Remedy


Wow...I absolutely love this site! I have been struggling with head lice wIth all three of my daughters and after countless amount of money spent on otc medicines I decided to try something else. After reading everyones home remedies I have FINALLY gotten rid of those annoying little suckers!! All it took was dawn dish soap, olive oil, and conditioner (no one in particular). I mixed 1/2 cup of dawn and 1/2 cup of olive oil. I lathered each one of my daughters hair and let it sit for about an hour. Afterwards I rinsed out the hair and used conditioner just to smooth out hair. Those lice didn't stand a chance! They were falling out like crazy. I then used a blow dryer to blow them out of their hair! Tomorrow....I will do it on myself because after seeing all those lice I feel things crawling on me....ewwww!

I just wanted to thank you about your remedy for head lice. I am now itch free AND lice free! THANKS SOO MUCH!!!


Will vegetable work or just olive


I was wondering the same thing...about the veggie oil vs. olive


I have to try this I am freaking the hell out I don't have the stuff tonight but I am going crazy in need of help and have none!!!


really this works? i have been battling it with my son and daughter now for what seems like forever. I do not have alot of money so buying the stuff from the store is not an option. but i do have these ingredients. I will go try it now! :)


We're going to try this tonight, but our concern is that it kills them or do they fall out alive?


Can you use just vegetable oil? I don't have olive oil.


I have to try this. I have been battling this for 1 1/2 months. So annoying. But i don't have olive oil wondering if any oli will work?
