The first thing that will come to parent’s mind, when their children complain that their scalp is itchy, is head lice.
This becomes a fear, because the lice are extremely difficult, as well as annoying to remove. They are in fact small insects which don’t have wings. They feed on blood and can be extremely contagious.
Even thought that there are possibilities that adults might also get lice, children are the individuals that most common suffer from them, as they can get them in school or in kindergartens. They are not dangerous but they may cause inflammation and itchiness of the scalp.
Also, if they are not eliminated on time, they can multiply very fast and that can lead to severe infection. There are a lot of shampoos in the markets which are anti – lice, and they are also quite expensive, but also ineffective. You may spend hours of combing your hair, but you will again find parasites behind.
However, in this article we are going to present you one homemade remedy, which will help you in removing the head lice almost instantly.
Here are the needed ingredients:
– Lice comb;
– White vinegar;
– Shower cup or plastic bags;
– Few towels.
By using the mouthwash, wash the head of your child and wrap the hair into the plastic bag. After that, cover it with a bathing cap. Leave it like that for one hour. The mouthwash will keep the lice away, as it has strong smell, because they cannot stand the smell of spearmint.
After an hour, remove the bag and wash the hair with vinegar. This will remove the eggs from lice.
After that, cover the head again with a bag/ hat for one hour more. Next, remove the bag/hat and wash the hair of your child by using a normal shampoo. Then, comb the hair of your child with a lice comb.
For some better results and effects, you can spray the hair of your child with a mouthwash once again before going to school.
This is a treatment which will provide amazing effects and results, and you will also avoid the dangerous chemicals in over-the-counter products against lice, which may enter in the bloodstream of the child and also lead to more severe health issues.
