How I Got Rid Of My Hair Lice Completely

Lice are little animals barely noticeable that live on the scalp and feed on human blood.

When i first discovered i had lice I was feeling cold even when everywhere was hot, that was how disgusted I was. Everyone kept on telling me "the only way to get rid of lice is to cut your hair" and I didn't want to cut my hair so I decided to try a few things I thought might work

1. I relaxed my hair: not a lot of people might want to do this because of the trend of virgin hair reigning now so it's totally optional, but the chemicals in the relaxer helped kill the live lice a little.

2. I applied direct heat using hair dryer while also combing my hair with small comb: nits(lice eggs) can't stay in a temperature that isn't the same as the scalp, therefore direct heat on them killed them while I used the small comb to comb it out. I did this every 3 days for like a week , so that any nit that didn't die and should hatch will be removed too.

3. Last but not least I changed my pillow case and bed sheet everyday. This is because lice can't live outside the scalp for more than one or two days so it's not really necessary to burn all your linens as some people suggested to me.

And remember lice doesn't care if your hair is clean or dirty, it affect all, so regular washing ,although it helps, isn't a very effective way of removing lice.

And I know if you do this you will have peace of mind as i have now

  • Hair lice can not only disturb your peace but can also cause you embarrassment in public. Imagine your self all dressed up looking good to go for an important meeting. Standing up to talk in that meeting, and those sitting beside you begin to notice the lice crawling down to your face, neck or ear.

  • I totally agree with your suggestions. Regularly washing the hair with mildly hot water can be of great benefit too besides just relaxing. It's also possible that the eggs of the lice might be present in clothes. So washing the clothes and drying in hot sun can help. Fumigating the whole room too would help eliminate lice too

  • There is no doubt that Lice is dangerous and when it get to a stage, it kills as we have to be very careful of ourself. I have this experience from our neighbour's dog once some time ago.

    This is to tell everyone to be very be cautious of its dangerousity and among the symptoms of it is Several itching of the part it is.

  • Doing away with hair lice is a bit easier in men than it is in women. For men one just has to cut his hair completely off  using razor blade or a sharp clipper. Lice like to hide under the hair but once there is no hidden place for it, they will diasapear immediately

  • The issue of the live is really something these days especially for women. Some women can do without scratching the head and it's becoming shameful for some. I hope some our ladies can also find means to deal with the issue.

  • Actually,  I had a bitter experience with hair lice sometime last year. I treated my hair with shampoo and hair conditioner hoping to quell them only to find out that it did the exact opposite as the lice only increased.  I combed thoroughly, tried different methods I found online all to no avail. After trying so hard,  I decided to put my dilemma into prayers.  Funny as it may sound, that was one method that worked out perfectly as the day after my prayer,  I realized that every single one of the hair lice was dead and dried up. I just went over to a hair salon, got my hair washed and that was it.

  • Lice are tiny parasitic organism that lives on the hair and are not easily noticed. There are many ways to get rid of it. For example applying of kerosene on the hair helps to kill them. When u apply kerosene on your hair and cover it with a cap. The hotness coming from the kerosene helps to kill it.

  • Lice is a parasite and has a nuisance value. It also can transmit some other parasitic infections. Lice infestation causes the affected to constantly scratch his or her hair. Good personal hygiene helps to prevent this infestation. Once affected I know application of some chemical kill them both adult and egg. Regular washing of hair and hair treatment help remove them.

  • Thanks for the information, now I know what to do when I have lice on my hair.  I think what I missed out was the part of having to wash the pillow case and bedsheets daily.. This may be a little cumbersome, but it's worth the trouble.

  • Lice is a parasite that lives mainly on hair causing discomfort to the host, the best and easiest way to get rid of it is by cutting off your hair entirely and maintaining proper hygiene.
