Head lice – we’re all afraid of them, right? Well yes, and we all know that head lice are difficult to remove and they are extremely annoying. Lice are wingless, small insects that feed on human blood and they can be very contagious.
UNFORTUNATELY, our kids get them in school. Adults can get them too. They are not dangerous, but they are annoying and can cause inflamed and itchy scalp. So, if you do not get rid of them immediately, it can get out of control because they multiply very fast and this can cause a serious problem.
There are different types of lice shampoos on the market shelves today. But, unfortunately, these products can be very expensive and ineffective. And, at the end of the day, you still deal with the same problem.
but do Not worry, my dear friends, because we’re going to show you the best and most effective homemade remedy which will help you to get rid of head lice almost instantly. This remedy is very simple and easy to make. You just have to follow these simple instructions.
Listerine mouthwash, (if you want you can use another brand),
Shower cup or plastic bags and a couple of towels.
1. With the mouthwash wash your child’s head. The hair should be completely wet.
2. Make sure the hair is completely wet.
3. Using a plastic bag wrap the hair or cover it with a bathing cap.
4. Leave it for 60 minutes.
5. Remove the bathing cap or plastic bag.
6. The next step is to wash your child’s hair with the vinegar and again cover it with a plastic bag for additional 60 minutes.
7. Remove the cap and rinse your child’s hair with a normal shampoo.
8. Grab a lice comb and comb the hair.
here is How this works:
according to the experts, the vinegar will eliminate the lice eggs from the hair. The truth is that vinegar will not kill adult head lice, because it simply lacks the properties to do so. The acid contained in vinegar might kill nymphs, though, which are young lice that cannot lay eggs yet. However, vinegar can really help getting rid of head lice eggs, called nits.
The powerful smell from the mouthwash will keep them away. Lice are repelled by the smell. Many people say that lice can’t stand the smell of spearmint and that is why they will escape. You can also add Listerine in spray bottle and spray it on your child’s hair before school to avoid catching lice.
However, it is better to use this treatment than commercial products against lice which contain a lot of chemicals which can enter in the child’s bloodstream.
