Hi, I think that many people go for chemicals or medicated shampoos. if you need to go for a natural way to get rid of lice, try this: Kill the lice. • Ensure no lice are left on combs, brushes, towels, etc. • Rub Onion juice on the scalp • Vinegar

Head Lice is a general problem among children. Since girls tends to have long hair so the problem is much visible among them. There are a few home remedies available to prevent this problem. Home remedies have proven much better than the counter medicines and shampoos. One of the remedy which is commonly used is the application of garlic and lime juice paste. The strong fragrance of garlic suffocates the lice and thus helps in getting it eradicated. Almost ten cloves of garlic paste and two teaspoon of lime juice when mixed and applied gives the best result, this paste needs to be left for half an hour and then thoroughly rinsed with warm water.

Use of baby oil along with detergent soap is also known to show good results. Baby oil should be applied and then the hair should be combed well so that the lice can come out easily on to the comb. After this the hair needs to be rinsed with detergent and warm water. This method needs to be repeated for three to four days a week for at least two months for complete eradication.

Application of a thick layer of petroleum jelly on the scalp and needs to be left over night and the head needs to be covered with shower cap or towel. Next day the use baby oil will help the petroleum jelly to come out easily and then the hair needs to be rinsed very thoroughly with shampoo and warm water.
