    Default Getting rid of Lice

    Here is the link for Mayonnaise treatment to remove lice in the hair

    When we used it wewrapped the hair in saran wrap and then put the shower cap over it
    Then just havethe child go lay down and watch tv so that they aren't active.
    I layed a huge bath towel double or triple folded under my daughter's head

    By watching tv the time slips by very fast. If they keep watching the clock for 2 hours it could seem like all day to you

    But leave it on for the full time as directed
    Follow the directions to a T and you should be all set

    Hope this helpsTammy

    Default Getting rid of Lice

    I think all the suggestions here have been good. I have always used over

    the counter items. Most importantly you need to get a fine tooth comb and

    thoroughly comb through her hair. RECHECK and treat in 3 weeks when the

    eggs hatch. Everyone that is close to her in the house(within 3 feet)

    should be treated as well as anyone who she shares sleeping areas with or

    stuffed animals. Lice cannot grasp on to hair that is much shorter than

    inch in length so a nice clipper cut always works for the boys. Try to keep

    her hair in braids or close to her head in a bun or French braid and she

    probably won�t get them again. Clothing and bedding needs to be washed in

    hot water and/or with bleach. Upholstered fabric furniture that is

    frequently used needs to be sprayed with something that will kill the eggs

    (Flea sprays will usually work). I know that you don�t want to use

    chemicals but there is nothing worse than going through all of this and

    having them return. Any ribbons or hair ties, combs and brushes need

    cleaning with bleach or vinegar as well. Just use your head, if it�s


    around her head or hair it probably needs to be cleaned with bleach or

    vinegar or heat treated (dryer for at least 45 mins.) Those things that

    can�t be cleaned/heat treated should be bagged and for at least three


    not used. You should make sure that any friends parents know so that they

    can treat as well. I know of a family at my work that got these critters

    back more than 20 times because they skipped steps. Their little girl has

    been removed from the family by the state because of continued lice

    infestation (medical neglect). I just think it�s easier to take the


    steps the first time and get it right. Good luck!!
