Three Tips that will Help you Rid Lice for Good!
By Monica Resinger
A couple of years ago, my daughter had the misfortune of getting lice. It was
a terrible experience that I hope none of you have to go through, but if you do
get it, I’d like give you three tips that helped me rid lice for good. When
you buy the lice treatment, please follow the instructions included for
treating lice and cleaning your home, then use my tips as additional measures
to ensure you have rid them for good.
First off, I'd like to ad that this can be extremely hard to get rid of so
don't feel like a failure if you have tried to get rid of them and it didn‘t
work. I had an extremely hard time getting rid of them - so hard that I
finally visited our doctor to find out how to get rid of it for good.
TIP #1: His first recommendation was to get a metal, fine-toothed comb to comb
the lice out rather than using the comb provided in the lice shampoo package.
It is imperative to get every single egg out of the hair so you have to be met
iculous. The metal combs are sturdier and the teeth are spaced closer together
so you will have a better chance of getting them all. If you don’t see these
combs in the lice section, ask the pharmacist. They are expensive, but worth
it. Don't think like I did... The lice box says it kills lice and their eggs
so I thought if I didn't get every one, they would be dead anyway... WRONG...
you need to get them all out just in case one survives. It may take a long
time to do this especially if your daughter has long hair as mine did, but it
will save you hours of time later by ridding it for good.
TIP #2: My doctor then told me the most helpful thing anyone could ever learn
about lice, and for this reason, I can't understand why this isn't told to us
parents! (maybe because the lice product companies want to sell as much as they
can). What he told me was that full-strength vinegar dissolves lice eggs! I
took this to heart and knowing that vinegar can actually be good for your hair,
I had my daughter and the rest of my family (even though the rest of the family
didn‘t get lice) rinse their hair with it after every shampoo. I still have my
daughter do it as a precaution. I figure if one lice bug were to get in her
hair and lay eggs in a day, the vinegar she uses to rinse her hair should
dissolve them out before they can hatch! So far, so good!
TIP #3: Lastly, I had heard that blow-drying ha
ir will help; I think because they don't like heat or styling products
(probably why I didn't get it). So, we began blow-drying my daughter's hair
every morning after her shower.
By following the cleaning regimen like the lice shampoo instructions tell and
following the tips above, we finally got rid of lice for good. Remember to
have your children keep their hair up in ponytails or braided if it is long and
tell them to never share combs, brushes, barrettes (or other hair things),
hats, coats or other clothing when they go to school, daycare or other place
with lots of children. Please spread these tips in an effort to help battle
this epidemic! Thank-you!
