Lice

Mayonnaise and head louse are two terms you often see linked together as a home remedy for head louse. Mayonnaise is a very messy head louse treatment that some people swear by and others swear at. The whole point of this or any other treatment is to kill the lice and the nits (eggs). If even one nit is left alive on the head or the clothing the infected person wore, the treatment must be repeated.

The mayonnaise remedies all vary slightly but the commonality among all of them is take 3-5 tablespoons of mayonnaise and heat it in the microwave for 30-45 seconds then put on the head of the infected person making sure each and every hair is coated from the scalp to the tip. Cover the head with a plastic cap or bag with all air squeezed out so the heat stays in. Keep warm for as long as the person can tolerate but at least two hours. Some say you can wash the mess out immediately with a shampoo conditioner combination and others recommend keeping the plastic covering on over night.

After the head is washed to get the mayonnaise out, you will need to thoroughly comb the hair with a lice comb.

Repeat the treatment in 5 days. Lice have a life span of about 8 days but the eggs hatch in about 5 so waiting a week gives the hatchings a chance to breed.

Make sure you thoroughly spray and clean any bedding, clothes and furniture in the living environment for the infected person.

The active ingredients in mayonnaise that make this treatment work are oil and vinegar. The oil prevents the louse from gripping the hair or scalp so they are easier to remover and the vinegar helps dissolve the glue that holds the nits to the hair.

For a natural and guaranteed way to eradicate head lice, I suggest you rush to head louse treatment right now to learn more.

Head lice are sometimes called hair lice because they often grab on to hair when you try to wash them out and they attach their eggs to the hair with a glue that makes them very hard to remove. Many of the commercial shampoos and treatments fail to work well for many because they don’t do a good job of removing the eggs which means the treatment must be repeated about every 10 days until all of the eggs have hatched. Repeat the treatment too soon and you miss the hatched lice and repeated the treatment too late and the hatched lice have had time to lay new eggs before they are killed by your treatment.

This remedy is a two step process that works to kill the living lice and dissolve the glue holding the eggs to the hair so you can completely eliminate hair lice.

Mix a 1/2 cup of olive oil with 2 or 3 tablespoons tea tree oil. Apply to your hair and rub into the scalp. Leave it on your hair for 30 minutes to an hour. Wash your hair to remove the oil. Rinse your hair with vinegar (the vinegar loosens the “glue” holding the eggs and nits on your hair). Wait 5 to 10 minutes and rinse your hair with hot water. Repeat the vinegar rinse. Always comb your hair out with a metal lice comb to remove any remaining nits. (The plastic lice combs break too easily, especially if you have thick hair.)

Don’t forget to wash all bed linens, towels and clothes in hot water to kill the lice that may be on them. Vacuum mattresses and furniture to remove as many lice from those items as possible and then spray Lysol® on them plus any personal care items the infected person used.

To prevent the return of hair lice, place 4 drops of tea tree oil in your daily shampoo and then wash your hair as usual.

Not all remedies work for all people so I invite you to check out some of the other remedies for lice removal elsewhere on the Natural Remedies Products website. I strongly recommend you also check out Head Lice Be Gone – A Proven System where a mother of 3 girls talks about a system she uses to naturally get rid of head lice from her girls.

Before deciding on a head louse treatment that’s right for you, you need to understand your enemy. Head lice are tiny little insects that live, breed and die on a human host. Lice have been around for thousands, if not millions, of years so they have adapted to the point they are VERY difficult to get rid of if you don’t have the right treatment. Head louse have claws that are well designed to hold onto the hair. They also attach their eggs to the hair using a specialized saliva that bonds as well as many glues.

Young children are most likely to get infestations because they more frequently share clothing, personal care items such and brushes and combs or have head to head contact. Adults that have children in the home can also get head lice infestations because of the close contact with the children.

Some commercial treatments and home remedies are good for killing the adults but the results aren’t as good when it comes to the eggs which are called nits. A comb specifically designed to help pull the nits away from the hair is almost always needed regardless of the treatment method you choose.

Many parents of young children must figure out how to get rid of lice from time to time. This article will show you a way you can help prevent them and keep them from returning.

Zinc is a mineral we need to be healthy as we discussed in our articles on minerals and lice don’t appreciate people that have enough zinc in their diets.

Combine the effectiveness of zinc with an adult shampooing the hair of their child with a thorough scalp massage while shampooing and you have a winning combination. A conditioner must be used with the shampoo to ensure you help condition the scalp and hair. A metal lice comb is a useful tool to help pull the eggs loose from the hair they are attached to.

There is no one way to get rid of lice that works for everyone. There are expensive commercial shampoos that can be used, there are many home remedies that can be used and there going to be varying degrees of success with each treatment you choose. Lice have adapted to live their entire lives on their host and they have existed for over 3 million years so the treatment that will get rid of lice may not be easy to find.

You can find other remedies for lice removal elsewhere on the Natural Remedies Products website. I strongly recommend you also check out Head Lice Be Gone – A Proven System where a mother of 3 girls talks about a system she uses to naturally get rid of head lice from her girls.
