My 13 year old daughter (with thick long hair) kept coming home from Middle School with Lice. To my surprise, it's not mandatory for the Nurse to do Lice checks, or even send out notes to inform parents anonymously. Do you know that the after the nits hatch, it takes 3-4 days for these discusting things to reach sexual maturity and breed. I've tried everything but, nothing worked better than this! Come on Moms, put on your Gloves, grab your Starbucks Coffee, get into the ring, and let's do this!!! DAY ONE - saturate head with Mint Listerine - cover with a plastic cap for 2 hours (this kills the Lice), rinse, saturate head with White Vinegar - cover with a plastic cap for 1 hour (this will loosen the nits glue), rinse, palm full of Original Dawn Soap, rinse, and comb through with a Fine Toothed Metal Comb. This whole process is long, but very effective and worth your time. My daughter said it itched at first, tingled, and then felt a relaxing cool. DAY TWO - Lice hate coconut so, I got shampoo and conditioner containing it, and added 2 Tablespoons in each bottle of Tea Tree Oil (mixed well). I also have Paul Mitchell's Tea Tree Oil Shampoo and Conditioner that I get my daughter to wash with daily. When her hair is completely dry, Go through hair with Lice Guard Robi Comb, and with it's AA battery it electrocutes the Lice on contact. You can use this daily, safe on children, and you can buy it at Walgreen's for $30.00. Spray all of your things with Lysol and Bedding Spray. Girl's don't forget your bras, cars, cell phones, I Pods, MP3s, X Box 360 Head Gear, gym clothes, shoes, backpacks, toys, and all of your hanging clothes in your closet. Boil brushes on medium heat for about 15-20 minutes, add water, and Early Morning Breeze Lysol in a can (about 2 caps full), repeat after brushing your hair each time. Set off Foggers (Raid Concentrated Deep Reach) in an orange box, throughout your house. I also put a Lysol Neutra Air timed spray, set for every 30 minutes in her room on her dresser. DAY THREE -From GNC get Coconut Oil Capsules for about $14.00. Break open about 5-6 Capsules, and pour on the scalp at the roots, and massage in. With a Fine Toothed Metal Comb, start combing out the nits, and leave it in. Saturate head with a can of Coconut Milk - cover with a plastic cap for 1 hour (this will smother the nits, while conditioning your hair in the process). Wash out with your Coconut Shampoo and Conditioner, a couple of times. You can go through it again with the Robi Comb after the hair is completely dry. It took me 1 day total to get rid of them this way for the Lice, and 4 more days for the microscopic nits . At Walmart you can also purchase Organix Coconut Milk and Tea Tree products. Lice also hate eucalyptus, and peppermint oil. You can choose your scent for that day, put 1 dab behind each ear, and back of the neck. I have an In-Home Daycare, and it's good to know that we won the battle!!! Good Luck to everyone, and a special thanks to Moms everywhere.
God Bless You,
Tina Nichols
