Tips on Fighting the War on Lice

•    Mayonnaise, olive oil and Cetaphil can help jumpstart the fight.  Before bed, slather hair with one of the products and sleep in a shower cap.  In the morning, comb hair with lice comb and follow with hair wash.

•    The best defense is the “hands on” offense.  First dry hair.  Next, separate hair into small sections.  Carefully look at each section.  Using your fingernails or specially designed tweezers, gently pull off each visible nit.

•    If you can flick it – leave it.  Eggs and nits glue themselves to hair and must be pulled off.  Dandruff, hairspray, product and general “schmootz” can be flicked off.  

•    Comb, comb and then, comb again.  Comb entire head with lice comb as often as possible.

    Keep a pot out for combs, brushes, clips, etc.  As soon as you use a comb, put it in the pot.  Used items must be boiled for 20 minutes or  soaked in alcohol for 20 minutes.

•    Put all items that cannot be washed, i.e., stuffed animals, hats, covers, in a sealed plastic bag for two weeks.

•    Change pillowcases for 1 week  – bed sheets for the first 3 nights.

•    Vacuum everything – car seats, sofa cushions, etc.

•    Wear hair braided & in a bun, with lots of hairspray to prevent reinfestation – you are lice free, but your friends may not be!

Make sure your children's friends and play dates have checked before coming over.  Blame it on The Picky Mom!
