Lice Treatments at Home
Each lice treatment will come with specific directions and for the best results, these should be followed. There are powders, sprays, insecticides, pesticides, creams, shampoos, lotions and combs which can be bought and used as a treatment at home. Alternatively, you may choose to make your own treatment out of ingredients you have in the kitchen or bathroom (such as olive oil, vegetable oil, various essential oils, Vaseline, Mayonnaise, tea-tree or coconut shampoo). See our home remedy pages for ideas. If you have tried different types of treatment at home and none seem to be working, you may need to visit your doctor for a stronger medicated treatment (usually prescribed in the form of an insecticide).

At Home Lice Treatments
Techniques for lice treatments at home could include spraying them, picking them, squashing them, drowning them or smothering them. As all methods involve applications of treatment to the head, always be careful to avoid the eyes and mouth (perhaps with protective gear). Making the treatments at home as comfortable as possible will also help, so if you are dealing with children - sit them in view of the TV or something else that may keep their attention whilst the treatment works. Always exercise caution with young children, those with special needs and pregnant or breast feeding ladies, as many a treatment will not be suitable. Natural products may be best, but ask you doctor for advice if you have any doubt.
