- April 23, 2008 at 1:42 pm #257511Lice don’t like hairspray or sticky hair products or dirty hair. When my daughters were continually getting them I finally decided to treat them with Nix, bought one of those$20 electric combs they sell at Wal Greens and combed their hair every night for2 weeks or until nothing showed up. Then on anongoing basisI washed their hair with T-tree oil, which I mixed myself and smells gawdawful (I bought the T-tree oil from a healthfood store and put it in their regular shampoo), and put mouse and gel and hair spray in their hair anytime they went out.
We haven’t had it since.

Ok here is what I tried to no avail: These are mighty mutant bugs!!!
Nix which is just useless!
tea tree oil
Listerine(i think I got the orginal one,I used the tan one)
some cream RXed by my sons doctor
and still my head is itching especially at night! I have combed and combed and don’t see anything! I must have the cleanest head on the block by now!
I dont have a blow dryer,They just seem to keep getting stronger to live each year!!
I have been told that taking a bottle of Cetaphil face wash (or the generic will work too), applying to wet hair, then blow drying & covering the head w/plastic wrap (or plastic shower cap) and letting it sit overnight will kill all the eggs (thickness & drying of Cetaphil is suffocating) . The next morning just wash your hair as usual. Be sure to use the whole bottle, don’t skimp!!!
The goal is to have a thick head of the product all over your scalp.
These three clean up steps should be done once a week at the time of the weekly treatment.
1. Sterilize all the family’s combs and brushes. You can choose one of two methods.
You may soak the combs and brushes in isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol for 10 minutes or you may put them in the dishwasher on the full hot cleaning cycle.
2. Treat all bedding at the time of each lotion application. Take all sheets, pillow cases, blankets, comforters, and bedspreads from the beds in your house and run them in the dryer for 10 minutes on high temperature.
Then put the bedding back on beds. You do not have to wash it.
3. Patients should change to new fresh clothes after each treatment.
Put dirty clothes in the laundry hamper for later laundering.
