1 Comment for the Head Lice Home Remedy


Okay, I tried several combonations of home remedies that I have seen on this site, and....MY HAIR FELL OUT!!! Just kidding!!! I am a mother of 4 small children and have been through 3 weeks of hell. After struggling to become 'LICE, KNIT, BUGGER...and so on....FREE, I now want to share with you the true remedy. Yes, the oils are of the essence. Tea Tree Oil, Peppermint Oil, Salt and Dish Washing Detergent DID IT!!! This was not only the most effective, it was the easiest way to treat. I took 4 empty medium size bottles, such as a normal size shampoo bottle. I put half of the bottle with dish washing detergent, 10 drops of tea tree oil, 10 drops of peppermint oil and 3 Tablespoons of salt per bottle. All of us used this shampoo in the shower or bath. We would keep on for approx. 5 minutes or so as we would bathe. Rinse and use a COCONUT SHAMPOO AND/OR CONDITIONER!!! This combonation did the job. No lice, no knits, no babies, it was wonderful. We did this every night for roughly a week and actually were pretty convinced that they were gone after the first treatment. We would comb all hair in sections after every treatment as well. And YES, the aluminum combs do make a difference and are less time consuming, but should you only have the plastic combs, make sure you double or tripple comb the hair - - in sections.
Good Luck to you!!! I know this will ease your mind and frustration!!

I tried this on my two girls who have long thick hair and it worked wonders and yes the first treatment took care of the problem. i did add one thing and that was i wrapped their hair with cling wrap just to make sure the bugs were smothered only because of the thick hair
