When you see a child scratching its head you probably think that it has lice. Head lice are tiny bugs which don’t have wings and feed on blood.
They can easily transfer from one person to another and multiply in the hair. Kids often get lice because they play often with other kids in school or kindergarten and are very close to each other. This allows the lice to jump from one head to another.
Lice aren’t dangerous, but can cause inflammation and itchiness, and the most difficult part is their removal.
They multiply very rapidly, and you can’t be sure whether they will cause some infection or inflammation on the scalp. Since parents are those who remove the lice from their children’s heads, they are at risk of getting them too.
Lice are difficult to get rid of, because they can leave eggs in the hair and new lice appear even after you’ve spend hours combing the hair. There are anti-lice shampoos which can be very expensive, and won’t eliminate the lice completely.
However, there are some natural remedies which are effective and you can make them in your own home! You can also get a haircut first, so you will have a smaller surface to work on.
Cheap Way to Get Rid of the Head Lice Almost Instantly!
Here’s what you need:
- White vinegar
- Lice comb
- Shower cap/Plastic bag
First thing you should do is use the mouthwash to rinse the head. Then, take the plastic bag and wrap the hair in it. Then, put the shower cap on and wait for one hour. The mouthwash is helpful because lice don’t like the spearmint smell.
Then, you should rinse the hair again with white vinegar. This will remove the lice eggs. Take the plastic bag and use it to wrap your hair. Then, put the shower cap on again. Wait for half an hour and wash the hair with a regular shampoo. Afterwards, take the lice comb and comb the hair.
You should always spray the hair with mouthwash before you or your child goes out.
This remedy is very effective, and you won’t experience any side-effects since all ingredients are natural. It is better to try this remedy instead of exposing you or your child to toxic chemicals from the commercial anti-lice products.
