Curing Head louse in your home - Best home remedy for head louse

Head Louse called Pediculus humanus capitis, head lice are parasitic insects found on the heads of people. Having head lice is very common. Lice traumatize the skin in search of food. The trauma produces irritation which results in scratching, scratch marks and may be secondary pyoderma, impetigo and infective eczema. Persistent secondary infection brings about regional lymphadenitis.

Examination reveals living lice and nits. the latter are firmly attached to the hair, but can be moved along it towards the free end. Persistent impetigo of the scalp usually indicates the presence of pediculi. It may even Cicatricial Alopecia.

About 80% of head lice infections are amongst children aged 4-16 years. They are usually caught via head-to-head contact or, more rarely, by sharing hairbrushes, combs or hats. However, head lice cannot survive for long when away from the scalp and those found in clothing are usually dying.

How to get rid of head louse - Home remedy for head louse

Soak hair in olive oil. Leave this in overnight. Wash hair as normal to rid the oil. Next take plain white vinegar and rinse the hair with it. (undiluted) Wait for five minutes and rinse hair with tepid/warm water to remove vinegar. This dissolves the eggs. Repeat the vinegar rinse for four nights. On the fourth night check hair as you would with any other treatment. You may want to comb through the hair but we find that it's unnecessary with this method.

Here's a recipe for a natural lice treatment:

  • 2 ounces vegetable oil (e.g., olive oil)
  • 20 drops tea tree essential oil (melaleuca)
  • 10 drops rosemary essential oil
  • 10 drops lavender essential oil
  • 10 drops lemon essential oil (may be found in spice section of grocery store)

To use, combine the ingredients and perform a skin test. If no sensitivity is experienced, apply the mixture to dry hair. Cover hair with a shower cap or even a plastic bag, Leave the mixture on for 1-2 hours. Shampoo the hair 2-3 times to remove the oil.

A home remedy to prevent headlice infestation can be made by infusing juniper berries in a bottle of cider vinegar, and then rubbing this into the scalp daily. Another alternative is Tea Tree Oil.

Put the vasoline on hair apply cap, leave on overnight. The next morning apply peanut butterto get the vasoline out. All lice and eggs will come out. It suffocates them, and the eggs cant stay attached.

Apply mayonanaise throughout hair and scalp, leave in for about 1 hour, this suffocates the live lice. Rinse clean and take a fine toothed comb to get all the nits out, section by section. wash and condition hair.

Take some straight Camphophenec, pour onto head & make sure you massage into scalp & into the hot spots.. Then cover with a plastic shower cap, leave in overnight. Next morning, if there are any bugs they will be in the cap.. Wash hair, then leave a thin coating of hair conditioner around the scalp. Hair will be very soft and you can repeat if necessary..

Saturate the hair with rubbing alcohol (just any store bought stuff) and leave it in your hair for 15-30 mins. Then 7 days later do it again (heavy conditioning will be needed after).
