    The oil suffocates the live and breaks down the glue they use to attach the eggs to the hair. Not to mention makes it easier to comb through the hair. Make sure to comb in small sections and once you are done with one direction go back over the sections in another direction...

How to Get Rid of Head Lice Naturally Do you fear your kids coming home with head lice? Do you wonder how to get rid of head lice naturally, without having to use those dangerous chemicals? Fear no more, I’ve got you covered. Anyone scratching their head yet?

    Massage the hair and scalp with mayonnaise, cover with a plastic shower cap, and leave overnight. The next morning, the lice should be dead. Unfortunately, you can’t smother lice eggs (nits) - you’ll still have to remove them with a nit comb. Petroleum jelly can also suffocate lice. Apply a thick layer and leave on over night, then shampoo. (Note: It may take quite a few shampoos to remove all the jelly.) A final rinse with a 50:50mixture of white vinegar and water will help kill off eggs and remove oily residue. Essential oils can kill lice and ease itching. Combine 20 drops tea tree oil with 15 drops each of rosemary, lemon and thyme, and mix with 3-4 tablespoons olive oil. Massage mixture into dry hair, cover with a plastic shower cap and leave for an hour before shampooing out. If you do decide to go for a chemical 'cure', at least there are now some natural alternatives to conventional brands. Ask your pharmacist about Wild Child's Quit Nits, which is based on sandalwood essential oil, or Ego’s MOOV, a blend of eucalyptus and lemon tea tree oils. Two or three days later, perform detection combing again using a fine-toothed comb (sold in pharmacies and some supermarkets) – lice eggs can still hatch after treatment.
