Head Lice Treatment
Do not use pesticides or chemicals to kill head lice.
Homemade Lice Treatment
Mix garlic, nettle, and tea tree oil ( 3:3:1) to coat child’s hair, cover with a towel and leave overnight. Then shampoo with garlic shampoo or Neolife Green Shampoo.
Other available shampoos are: Not Nice to Lice Shampoo and Lifekind Organic Lice Shampoo from Lifekind Products. A coconut oil rinse leaves hair a little oily and this makes use of Nit Comb much easier and more effective.
After shampooing, hair must be combed with a Nit Comb. Innomed Lice Comb, Robi Lice Comb, Medicomb and Biocontrol Network are other acceptable nit combs. Combing the hair with a Nit Comb is very important. All combs must be cleaned in very hot soapy water.
- Shampoo and comb the hair every week for 3 weeks to avoid re-infestation.
- Wash clothing, towels and bedding in very hot water.
- Vacuum furniture, carpets, and mattresses thoroughly.
Also commercially available is ClearLice, a non-toxic combination of botanicals, plant extracts, and homeopathic remedies. 800-471-9483
