"DEAR DR. GOTT: I read your article regarding persistent head lice. Please
tell your readers not to use the chemicals that you buy at the drug store.
I have a natural remedy. My granddaughter had head lice that these
chemicals just would not eradicate.
After using these dangerous, prepared chemicals twice with no success, I
used plain old salad dressing (Miracle Whip, to be exact). I made small
parts in her hair and slathered the dressing on. You could see the little
boogers sliding down her neck.
We then put a plastic cap on her head, and she slept all night with it on,
washing it out in the morning. We repeated this treatment again in a few
days, and that was the end of the problem.
This treatment is also good for your hair. (It also might inspire you to
eat more salads!)"
