Homemade Head Lice Remedy

To get rid of head lice, just buy a cheap bottle of mouth wash (the kind that contains alcohol). Saturate the hair with mouth wash and a good conditioner, put shower cap on and leave on for one hour. Rinse out and comb with lice comb, all the bugs should be dead. Kills the eggs too. Don't forget to wash all bedding, hats, coats, brushes, etc. and vacuum the house good. This should take care of the lice without costly and dangerous products. My daughter and niece got them. After using all of the other stuff (that didn't work), tried this and they were gone. We have not been bothered with them since. Good luck!

Homemade Head Lice Remedy

You can use apple smelling shampoo as a preventative. And keep your hair up in a hair tie if at all possible. (01/07/2009)

Homemade Head Lice Remedy

We used the soap Cetaphil (or generic brand). Coat hair thickly and let dry. Rinse out and use the lice comb. Repeat every 2-3 days until all signs of lice are gone (then do it once more just to make sure, LOL!). Gentle on your child's scalp and leaves hair soft. Worked much better than the harsh chemical products.

As Suzanne said, don't forget to also wash any linens, hats, coats, pillows, anything that may have come in contact with the infested person in HOT water and vacuum furniture. I did my daughter's bed linens daily. Oh and don't forget your car seat as well.(01/08/2009)

Actually you don't even need the mouthwash, conditioner works great by itself. (01/08/2009)

Homemade Head Lice Remedy

A low cost, green eco friendly, healthy natural way to deal with lice is to make a homemade liquid from soap berries, which grow on the China berry tree and have been used for thousands of years. They work very effectively. (01/09/2009)
