Repeat this every day for a week to eradicate lice. To make the treatment more effective, add several drops of anise essential oil to the coconut oil prior to application.

  1. I have always had long thick hair, even now at 51 my hair is long..just not so thick..lol..My worst nightmare has came true..I have my very first ever case of head lice.. and it’s miserable ..and next to impossible to tend by ones self, my biggest fear is having to cut my hair..I just thought I’d share what my doc told me…Vaseline is the cheapest and most effective home remedy, grease your hair and scalp up real thick and heavy put a shower cap on for overnight ,live lice smother,and the eggs/ nits that have been layed with “super lice glue” metabolize actually starts to break down and gell with the Vaseline..(which I am learning is 98% of the battle) , a nit comb is still recommended for combing. I am about to try it myself. rid, and vinegar help but I am the blood host for a endless supply of microscopic eggs! and a tip my cousin shared with me.. Hair dye..I had never dyed my hair before either but We did. unfortunately it did not have the desired result..but that stuff is not so lethal these days..However It made the eggs and nits so much easier to see! so that is a bit helpful. I also wanted to comment here after reading through the post..Lice are to humans what fleas are to our pets, a nasty parasite that need a blood host to survive,they don’t care about ones hygiene habits, your age, sex, marital status,rich, poor, or color of your skin, or texture of your hair.. the nasty vamps just want to drink our blood.. so yes it’s embarrassing , and painfully irritating. you should not be embarrassed by a strangers ignorance..It is they who should be ashamed ..our problem can be cured with shampoo.Best of luck to all…and any tips on getting that tiny comb through all my hair and still get results would be sooo very much appreciated!

  2. Omg, this stuff WORKS!!! I have had an itchy scalp for a couple of weeks, had my granddaughter check me AND my doctor, neither one found a thing. Saw something moving in my hair, pulled it out and eeewwe it was lice. Went on line and found your formula, got all the ingredients the next day, applied it and no more itch, the nasty little buggers flowed out of my hair, I couldn’t believe that no one saw them. Looking forward to sleeping without itching tonight. THANK YOU, THANK YOU THANK YOU for sharing. I will recommend it to anyone.
