Remedy Description

Source; http://www.myhomeremedies.com/topic.cgi?topicid=496

When I was growing up my mother was never willing or able to rid our home of lice, so my sisters and I was tortured for years by these bugs. Now I am a mother

of three and guess what, nothing could get rid of these pests, until now. I came up with a recipe that will 100% kill lice and condition hair. You will be

amazed at the results. You need

* a jar of real mayonaise(store brand is best and cheap)

* white vinegar

* 100% tea tree oil

* a spray bottle.

Mix some mayo and vinegar in a bowl, until it looks like cake batter, kind of thick but still a little runny. Then drop about 8 drops of tea tree oil in the

mix, stir. The smell will be strong but don't worry it all comes out when shampooed. Now you put the mix in the hair by seperating the hair into about one inch

sections as you go, make sure you put it all over the scalp area of the seperated hair and then spread it all down the lock of hair. It is easiest to start at

the back of the head and work your way up. Once you have done the whole head, wrap the hair up with a clip on the top (if the hair is long) and put a shower cap

or grocery bag over the hair, press the bag down to remove the air. Leave on for atleast 2 hours. Meanwhile, fill your spray bottle 3/4 with water and drop

about 20 drops of tea tree oil in, and shake well. Now as you wait for the hair to be done, take your spray bottle and spray down your carpeting, couches,

chairs, beds, pillows, blankets, anything that lice could be living in. Don't soak your carpeting or furniture, just mist it all over. The tea tree oil works as

a repellent, because lice, ticks, fleas, misquitos, and horseflies hate the smell, so you could also use the spray on your pets. Also you want to add about 5-10

drops of tea tree oil into your shampoo, so then when your child is around other children that may have lice, the lice won't make your childs head thier new

home because they hate the scent. After the two hours rinse the hair in a sink with water until the water runs clear. At this point you will see dead lice

laying on top of the hair as you rinse.

It will amaze you. Now you need to comb threw the hair with a lice comb to remove the dead bugs as well as the eggs. The eggs will come out so easy because the

vinegar eats away the glue that holds the eggs onto the hair. If you need to, you can rinse with conditioner before combing. After these very simple steps you

and your home will remain lice free. As with any lice treatment you will want to repeat these steps 7-10 days after the first treatment, to make certain that no

lice eggs have survived. You will want to keep spraying the oil and water mix around your house just incase someone comes to your home with lice, atleast you

will know the bugs are not being dropped off into your carpets or furniture. This treatment is the fastest, cheapest, easiest, and unlike the others it is 100%.

I promise ,just try it. My family has been infested with lice for around 15 years, and finally we are lice free

i seen this remedy a few years ago when my daughter kept coming home with lice

week after week. i would spend so much money on shampoos and what not and doing

each strand of hair one by one to take each nit out. it was frustrating pouring

hours of time and the torture my lil girl went through to get her hair clean

just so the next week she had it again. im not sure if this is the official site

i first encountered but in just a few hours she had no more lice for years,

until we moved schools and i stopped using the tea tree oil in our shampoos and

she had a schoolmate who gave her lice. found this remedy again and of course it

works. i recommend it to anyone to use this i have even told moms at the stores.

so thank you who ever posted this bc its such a time saver and not to mention it
