Head Lice

BEST TREATMENT FOR HEAD LICE

As single parents I’m sure we’ve all had that call at least once; Mrs/Mr so-and-so, we have discovered that your child has lice. Duh, duh, duh! Not exactly the thing any parent likes to hear. That is why I have come to you today. I’ve had that call and let me tell you, lice are a dirty business, as well as very time-consuming. So for you single, stressed out parents I have created this post. The best treatment for head lice I hope it helps!

HOW PEOPLE GET HEAD LICE

Head lice live in your hair near the scalp, close to their source of food, your blood. They live only when there is a source of food (they do not feed on animal blood). Lice can come from many places, a shared hat or brush, a bed where someone affected has recently been, as well as close contact with someone affected.

Be smart don’t share personal items!

SYMPTOMS OF HEAD LICE

The most common signs of head lice are excessive itching. As well as, sores that develop from scratching, irritability and difficulty sleeping.

HOME REMEDIES TO HELP GET RID OF LICE

Vinegar

White Vinegar

BABY OIL

What you need:

Baby oil

Hot water

Laundry detergent

White vinegar

How it works:

Apply baby oil to hair, comb hair thoroughly to remove these little *bleeps.” Wash hair with laundry detergent and hot water. Saturate hair with white vinegar, cover with a shower cap or towel. Then most importantly, go to sleep. In the morning lather, rinse condition. Repeat for 3-4 days for best results.

Olive Oil

OLIVE OIL/PETROLEUM JELLY

What you need:
Olive oil (just olive oil)

Petroleum jelly (just petroleum jelly)

How it works:

Cover hair with a thick coating, apply a shower cap or towel. Then guess what? Go to sleep. Wake up (for olive oil) comb hair then wash with a herbal shampoo/tea tree oil mix. For petroleum jelly, use baby oil to remove jelly, comb those little “bleeps” out. Repeat 3-4 nights for best results.

Tea Tree Oil

TEA TREE OIL

(Natural insecticide)

What I need:

Tea tree oil-1 teaspoon

Natural shampoo-1 ounce

Coconut oil/olive oil-3 tablespoons

How it works:

Mix all three ingredients together, apply to your hair. Cover with a shower cap or towel. Don’t go to sleep, this one only needs about 30 minutes to work. When time is up, rinse with hot water and comb to remove lice.

I have tried these methods, all are very time-consuming but they work well if you repeat as necessary.

Nit-Picking

GET RID OF LICE EGGS (NITS)

It is always very important, as with any treatment to remove the eggs. This will be the deciding factor between failure and success.

GET RID OF LICE FOR GOOD

Being a single mom I know that all of these methods can work but are very time-consuming. Enter my secret weapon! Licefreee spray- instant head lice treatment. Sold on Amazon, distributed by The Online Drugstore-USA, at a very reasonable price of only $22.60 per 6oz bottle with free shipping. This product is fantastic! I tried it just a few months ago.

How it works:

All you have to do is thoroughly saturate the hair, wait for it to dry then comb out those pesky, dead, bugs and nits (eggs). Repeat treatment 7-10 days later and Voila lice free!

NOT ALL LICE TREATMENTS ARE CREATED EQUAL

In my honest opinion, all treatments work as long as you follow the directions to a T. For a major time saver though I thoroughly recommend Licefreee spray. It is quick, easy and very affordable (one bottle covered 4 heads). It also saved a lot of headache for me. If you sign up for amazon prime shipping is amazingly only 2 days (shipping normally takes about 1-2 weeks).,
