If your child is in a DFW area school, you’ve likely heard many “do it yourself” lice removal suggestions. The problem is, many of this don’t actually work.
In this article, Lice Lifters discusses lice removal tricks that don’t actually work.
OTC Products That Use Harmful Chemicals
Let us clarify, these shampoos and other products will kill off come of the head lice, but they also irritate the scalp and can be harmful, when not used according to their instructions. Why use a harsh method when there is a nontoxic, all-natural alternative that is kinder to your child’s scalp and won’t irritate the skin?
Using the Nit Comb Only
Most people realize that a nit comb is used for part of the live removal process. However, using a nit comb alone is not an effective lice removal trick. You must use a treatment method that addresses every life stage of lead lice in order to effectively free the scalp of head lice and nits.
Mayo, Olive Oil, Vaseline
