Add a tablespoon of white vinegar to your shampoo and mix well. Apply to your hair, focusing on the scalp, and let it sit for about 10 minutes. Rinse well twice.

I am not so sure that you mean fleas as I have never heard of fleas getting into human hair. Are you sure they aren't head lice? You might go to the pharmacy, and purchase treatment for head lice. It might also work on fleas. The druggist may have the answer.

Fleas can infect human hair especially if there are no pets around.


  • You should cut your hair as short as possible so it will be easy to treat.
  • Do not go to a public hair salon as you could infect others. It would be best if you cut your own hair (or at least a close friend who knows what is going on). It should not matter what it looks like for a few days until you have killed all of the fleas.
  • Cut your hair outside if possible and have a bag ready to add all hair and dispose of it in an outside garbage can immediately.
  • This step is very important or it may take weeks to kill off this many fleas. You will probably have to apply solution more than once so if your hair is short it will be a lot easier job.
  • You should have whatever treatment you plan to use ready before you begin.
  • If hair is short you can use small towels or cloths to dry your hair and then throw those away also.

  • You can use any treatment/shampoo that is recommended for killing lice but there are other treatments also.
  • Full strength white or apple cider vinegar can be used.
  • You can purchase a Tea Tree oil shampoo that will work and not completely dry out your hair.
  • No matter what you use, do not put conditioner on your hair until you know all fleas are dead (it is difficult to kill all flea eggs so it will take about 3 weeks and several treatments as new fleas hatch every 6-7 days).
