No-Mess Natural Lice Treatment Using No Chemicals or Oils!
Nothing is worse than head lice. They itch, they crawl, they're gross... If you have a large family, the price of taking care of this problem can be extremely daunting. Not only are chemical treatments costly, dangerous and unpleasant, they often don't work the first time. Sometimes they don't work at all. We're going to show you a fool-proof way to get rid of lice - all lice - in one shot using something you probably already have in your home.
What You Need:
- a hairdryer
- time to do it
That's it! A hair dryer with attachments is best, but any kind will work. If it has a 'low heat' setting, use that.
Section off the hair to make it easier to be sure you've gotten all of it. Aim the hair dryer at each section of hair near the scalp, holding it about 4-6 inches away. Be careful! Hair dryers can get hot! Take a shower or wash hair after treatment to get all the yucky bugs out of it. You can blow dry again after washing if you like.
This treatment not only kills adult lice but will kill nits and eggs if done correctly.
