Household Remedies For Head Lice | Top Ways to Get Rid of Head Lice

Head lice are ectoparasites, which live in human hair. They easily irritate people who possess them. This is because they lead to serious scratches and damage the scalp of the person. Many people look for various ways which will help them get rid of them.
Take two small pieces of garlic and clove, and make a paste by grinding them together. Once done, add this paste into lemon juice. Apply the solution to your head before going to bed. This is one of the best home remedies because garlic contains some chemicals which make the head lice impossible to survive. Take a bath the next day and see you will find the dead lice falling from your scalp.

Henna treatment is also a good home remedy as henna is supposed to clean up all the bacterial infection as well as lice infestation in the head. The paste of henna should be applied on the hair and after 2 to 3 hours should be washed off with a mild shampoo.

Mix freshly extracted coconut oil with camphor powder. Massage the mixture into the scalp before bed. Wash the hair and scalp thoroughly in the morning. Repeat for four days to kill all the lice.

Pure tea tree oil is another home remedy said to kill lice. Some people suggest mixing 8 to 10 drops with olive oil and rub on scalp. Cover with a shower cap and leave on 30 minutes. The trick to getting rid of lice is to make sure you have killed the egg laying bug and removed all eggs from your head. While home remedies may help you get on your way to a lice free head they may not be enough.

Simply, massage the mayonnaise onto your head. Leave it there for about two hours. This will not only kill the adult lice and any nymphs, but it will also kill the eggs.

Rubbing olive oil on your head will make the lice as well as nits easier to slide out, while giving the parasites less dead skin as well as hair follicles to feed on. Just apply the olive oil until the hair is rather wet and cover using a shower cap for approximately 3 hours. Comb the hair and they'll slide right out!

Using vinegar for head lice removal is just one part of the process required to completely rid you of these insects. Remember, vinegar is really only useful for dislodging the nits, you will need to use a treatment to kill the live lice as well. Don't forget to use a dedicated lice comb to remove any dead lice or destroyed eggs or you will soon find yourself fighting yet another infestation sooner than you think.

Comb your hair with a nit comb after combing first with a regular comb. It is easily available in any drug store where the lice shampoos are also available.
