How to treat head lice... Did you know that aside from making your hair softer and your scalp cleaner, olive oil is also effective in getting rid of head-pests such as lice?
Of course, this has never been scientifically proven. But plenty of folks have tried this remedy and tell that it has worked for them!
Head lice are tiny bugs that live on the human head. Head lice can migrate to your head directly from another person who is infested.
That means, pets or animals can't transmit head lice, which is what some of us have grown up believing. And you don't get it due to poor personal hygiene. In fact, most of the time, the head lice is transmitted from one clean head to another.
Kids are very good at picking up head lice at school or daycare. Once on your head, they make themselves at home and usually cause persistent and annoying itching of the scalp.
Getting rid of head lice can be tricky. The first step is to use a treatment that kills all of the live head lice on the affected person?s head.
There are plenty of commercial products on the market, but they all contain chemicals like pesticides, which could irritate the scalp, particularly if you or your children have particularly sensitive skin.
