Normally you will see an outbreak of lice somewhere in the school year. It’s never welcome and it always wreaks havoc in the whole house. That’s why I was so glad years ago to find this Head Lice Prevention Home Remedy.
My kids had it one time, and I shaved my poor little boys’ heads bald! I wasn’t even gonna think about anything else. I was a hairdresser for many years and I don’t DO lice!
I decided I never wanted to go down that road again and I began to study and find out what works in the prevention as well as how to get rid of them. What I found is that they don’t like scent of coconut! That was easy enough – I always used Coconut Shampoo and Conditioner for the kids from that time on – we never had them again! Suave is very frugal and has a coconut shampoo and conditioner, so that was very easy! You can also get coconut oil and use a drop or two in their shampoo.
One remedy to get rid of them is mayonnaise! My daughter, who was in her teens and mortified that her brothers had brought this horrible thing into her life, slept in mayo and a shower cap and that got rid of them. It suffocated them!
I also had a friend that told me heat kills them and her daughter (my daughter’s best friend) had dead ones in her hair because of the heat from her flat iron she used everyday to style her hair. Good to know!
That’s another issue you have to deal with – telling friends and family that they may have lice and they got it from your family. Most people think it’s the lice comes from dirty people. Truth be told, lice like clean hair better.
I was also told by a pediatrician that you can use rubbing alcohol. Saturate the hair very well and use a fine tooth comb to remove them.
So, stock up on the coconut shampoo and you should be fine! I would much rather prevent them, then have to deal with getting rid of them!
