Lice are a type of insects that live on the exterior of warm-blooded hosts. Head lice are pretty common, especially among children and feed on the blood in the scalp. They can spread easily and may cause itching and even sores on the scalp. Most people don’t experience the signs of a lice infestation, but many experience strong itching and inflammation in the scalp.
Although difficult to get rid of, lice are not very dangerous – they may cause irritation, but can’t transfer serious diseases like mosquitoes. However, things can get out of hand if the infestation isn’t resolved quickly.
In general, lice spread among children in kindergartens and primary schools. This doesn’t exclude adults, however – if your child has lice infestation, the insects can easily spread to your scalp. Girls are more prone to lice than boys, as are women.
There are many lice shampoos available on the market, but they are full of chemicals which might disturb the natural balance of the scalp. Many of them are useless as well, and the anti-lice combs rarely work. If you’re looking for a more reliable solution against lice, you’re at the right place. We’re going to show you how to prepare a simple natural mixture that will eliminate lice quickly!
Here’s how to prepare it:
- White vinegar
- Shower cap
- Lice comb
Wash your (or your child’s) head with mouthwash first, then cover it with a shower cap and leave the product to work for an hour. Now, remove the shower cap and rinse with the vinegar, then put a shower cap again and leave it to work for another hour. Finally, shampoo the hair with your favorite shampoo and comb the hair with the lice comb.
The remedy works thanks to the strong smell of the mouthwash and white vinegar which the lice hate. If you’ve tried anything and nothing worked, try this method and you will be amazed by the results!
