Head Lice Home Remedy Comments

3 Comments for the Head Lice Home Remedy


After trying many, many over the counter products and nothing seem to work, I decided to search for home remedies and found this site. After reading so many posts I found one that finally WORKED! You will need the following:
- Vaseline $1
- dawn dish detergent (blue) $1.40
- olive oil $3
- suave coconut dandruff shampoo $3
- suave coconut dandruff conditioner $3
- metal lice removing comb (Walgreens) $20
-disposable head cap $1
- hair comb $1
- blow dryer
- metal round styling comb $10

Saturate hair with Vaseline preferably leave over night and cover with head cap. ( I, however was not able to do that. I drenched my daughters hair with Vaseline and covered with head cap and left it for about 4-5 hours.) Then, comb hair with a wide tooth comb and massage hair with olive oil and dawn, comb hair again to get rid of any nots. Then begin to use your lice comb and clean with each stroke until your comb comes out clean. Once you have done that add a little more dawn to the hair to get rid of the grease left from the vaseline. wash hair using the coconut shampoo and condiotioner towel dry and blow dry using a metal round styling comb. Comb the hair one more time using your lice comb, clean and sanitize comb after use. 97% of the lice will be gone for the 3% u want to wash hair with the coco shampoo and cond, blow dry with styling comb, and use lice comb for 5 days and ur child will be lice free..

Petroleum Vasoline should never be put in anyone's it can catch on fire.


Hair can catch fire without Vaseline, too. What's your point?


A doctor recommended this process for my daughter's hair. I thought that it was crazy, but since it worked for your daughter, I will actually try it.

Thank you for the post.
