How to get RID of lice at Home PermanentlyHow to get RID of lice at Home Permanently  Lice can’t hop or fly. They can crawl, but they prefer to stay on human heads. Most can live no longer than 24 hours away from their food supply.

A hair-covered scalp is their natural environment and that’s where they live out their brief, blood-sucking life. A healthy louse will not voluntarily crawl off your child’s head, but they do sometimes fall off the head.

Proper application of over-the-counter lice treatments with comb-outs and close follow-up inspections are your best weapons against lice. That said, you may want to take a few basic housekeeping measures.

THE NIT COMB

In the video below, a professional “nitpicker” walks you through effective combing techniques for removing lice and nits.

APPLE CIDER VINEGAR + COCONUT OIL

In this method, you first rinse the hair with apple cider vinegar to loosen the glue that holds the nits in place. Allow the vinegar to sit until the hair is fully dry, then coat the scalp and hair completely with coconut or olive oil to suffocate the lice. Pull all the hair into a shower cap and let the oil sit for at least eight hours. Remember, the little buggers can hold their breath for a long time.

When the time is up, you have the option of either shampooing to remove the oil, or combing the hair with a nit comb and then washing. You may need to shampoo more than once to get all the oil out. Make sure to wash and dry all the towels and clean out your comb. Also throw any sheets/pillowcases that have been slept on in the dryer for 20 minutes.

Use one of these techniques and you will get perfect results.
