Nature to give the helping hand
During their small scale personal research, a great number of people discovers a number of natural remedies for lice-removal. But truth be told, there are just four most crude techniques to bring this pest under control, and free oneself from it once and for all. Those include the following:
- Bug-poison based shampoos – which are known to be quite effective means for successful fighting off of lice. However, the most prominent downside is that they might induce a variety of allergic reactions, which might be brought about by the insecticides that are present in shampoos themselves. In addition, it should not be used if the child's head has open sores, for this is yet another way for the poison to enter the child's body.
- Mechanical means – which are based on cautious combing starting with the hair follicle and all the way to the tip of the hair. Of course, those being gifted with long hair will most certainly find this method quite strenuous, but nevertheless, it is one of the most effective anti-lice solutions known today.
- Essential oils - which make up most vital constituents of a number of anti-lice products, and which are known to be able to disinfect and annihilate this threat completely. Also, such products are not only extremely effective, but they are also much safer than the aforementioned shampoos.
- Home remedies – which include the methods rooted in food products aimed at dealing with head pediculosis, i.e. a lice outbreak.
