Some people put mayonnaise on their hair. They saturate the scalp and put a shower cap on. They sleep with it and wash it out the next morning.

This website has a lot of good solutions.

My friend swears by the essential oils, however you have to be EXTREMELY careful with all of these, especially the oils, not to get it in your eyes. SAFETY FIRST!

There are companies that sell expensive essential oils, like at home parties, but many drug stores or grocery store pharmacies sell them also. Around me you have to get them from behind the counter, meaning ask the pharmacist to sell them to you. That is actually good as they can give you info on safety measures!

Soak your hair and scalp with white vinegar, wrap for 60 minutes, rinse and blow dry

A friend of mine says that using Mayonnaise will kill lice. I personally have never had to use it, but as a non harmful thing to use, I sure would try it.

I would not recommend this but an old-timer I know said she doused her head in diluted bleach to kill lice, back in the day.

Per The Office episode of the last season, I learned that many people use mayo, as stated above Here's the lovely Dwight with an exagerated lecture on lice BTW www.youtube.com/watch?v=k2Wxx6O3nhk

the reason mayo works it that the viscous oil suffocates the lice. If you cant' abide mayo in your hair, olive oil is also good. Many advocate adding a few drops of essential oil as well www.healthline.com/.../lice-home-remedies#1
