How to get rid of lice
The first thing to do when getting rid of lice is to identify or confirm if there are, indeed, critters on the head.
Get one at the chemist's and use the comb on the hair to remove lice and nits that attach themselves on the scalp. Take the hair in sections and run the comb through them to trap any lice and nits that are living in the hair. It is very important that the nits are also destroyed as these are eggs that will form into adult lice.
Pyrethrum is the natural insecticides that can be found in chrysanthemums. Products that contain this ingredient work to remove and kill head lice. It does not always work though as some head lice are resistant to toxins. After applying the product, make sure to comb for nits.
In addition to the beauty benefits of olive oil on the hair, it is also excellent at smothering lice and eventually killing them. Combing afterwards for nits is still key at the effective extermination of head lice.
Products that use pemethrin as its main active ingredient are effective at removing lice. Combing is essential as well as a follow-up treatment.
