Head Lice Treatment
OMG My Kid Has Head Lice!! What do I do?
Well after 3 children and spending hundreds of dollars at a time on the traditional drug store lice treatments, I here to tell you how to save money, time, and your sanity.
My youngest is now 5 years old and in day care. She has long, beautiful, thick brown hair, that daddy won't let us cut. When she first caught head lice I wanted to cry! What a nightmare this is, the cost, the time spent picking and combing through hair, just the whole ordeal. So daddy went to the drug store and bought them out of lice treatment products. We treated everyone in the house, all 6 of us. Did all the laundry, bedding etc. Bagged all the soft plush toys, vacuumed, moped, and scrubbed. Hours upon hours were spent picking through every one's head. Just to find in a weeks time she still had live lice in her hair. I did cry this time!
I got out the laptop and searched the Internet for other methods of treatment. Something that would work effectively and inexpensively. With all my research I found that the traditional store bought pesticide methods, just won't work anymore, the lice have built an immunity to them. But why shouldn't they, its the same product being used for more than 20 years. What I did find is hundreds of Moms recommending the use of Listerine for lice treatment. I thought OK, what have we got to lose, $4.00.
I ran out to the store bought a large bottle of regular Listerine, a couple of shower caps and followed the instructions of these moms to the tee. Guess what it worked fantastically. That was over a year ago.
Today I got a call from the daycare, the nightmare begins again. I went to the store purchased a large bottle of Listerine and a package of shower caps. Total cost of this treatment $7.00 and this will do all 6 people in the house (just in case).
Here is what to do; soak the hair with regular Listerine, cover head with a shower cap for 2 hours. After the 2 hours wash hair and use your lice comb to comb through the hair all eggs must be removed or your child will not be allowed back in school. A secret to nit and egg removal, vinegar, its weakens the sticky natural glue on the eggs and most eggs and nits will come out with greater ease.
I know now that after all this talk about head lice, your probably scratching your head, not to worry its most likely the power of suggestion. But Listerine your self to be safe...
