|Just to let ya know! I can't tell you how long she's had it, probably not very long though you really should treat her again. Make sure she washes her head every day! I'm told that lice like unwashed hair. You should also treat everyone else's hair in your household, just for precautions. If the treatment doesn't work, there is a great home remedy! Before she goes to bed, rub olive oil through her hair and on her scalp. Then, put a shower cap over her head overnight, and wash it out over night. It really works! I had head lice when I was younger and my mother used it on me!
|Try to get yourself a natural head lice remedy, one that contains Neem Oil. The Neem tree is native to India, is known as the âCure Allâ tree and has been used as a natural insecticide for thousands of years. When you mix this with other natural ingredients that kill both lice and nits you have a totally safe treatment.
If you want to suffocate the live lice coat your hair in baby oil, put on a showercap and leave it on overnight. Put on a sweatband to stop the drips. This will suffocate them.
In the morning straighten your hair with hair straighteners to pop the nits. Repeat this in 7 days to catch any nits that hatch that you missed. Use mousse or hairspray every day to simulate 'dirty' hair which lice find hard to attach to.
We got hold of a book called 'Live Lice Free - The Head Lice Handbook.' This had everything we needed to know to get rid of head lice. Their remedy worked for us and killed all the nits and lice.
Hope this helps.
