Here are a variety of home remedies, over-the-counter, and prescription treatments used to treat head lice.

Home Remedies For Removed Head Lice
1. Wet-Combing 

  • Combing wet hair with a fine-toothed nit comb may remove lice and some nits. Research is inconclusive on the effectiveness of this method.The hair should be wet, and you should add something to lubricate the hair, such as a hair conditioner. Comb the entire head from scalp to end of the hair at least twice during a session. The process should be repeated every three to four days for several weeks — at least two weeks after no more lice are found.

2. Coconut Oil

  • Coconut oil treatment every 3-4 days for 2 weeks. Have someone else search head for nits daily. Though we found a few nits on the first few days after the treatment, since then there have been none. That was 2 weeks ago. Don't forget to wash all sheets, towels, pillows, clothing, and quarantine anything that is suspect for at least 2 weeks. 

3. Apple Cider Vinegar


  •  Your best bet is to buy an apple cider vinegar which is not filtered. This is because it will most of the time have a 5% acid concentration, which is what you want. A higher concentration would not be so safe to apply to your scalp, and a lower concentration would not be as effective to unglued the nits from your hair.

4. Salt

  • Mix one-quarter cup of salt and one-quarter cup of vinegar thoroughly. Gently spray the solution onto your hair so that it becomes slightly wet. Put on a shower cap and leave it for about two hours. Then wash and condition your hair.

5. Tea Tree Oil

  • Take few drops of tea tree oil and sprinkle it on your scalp and hair This process will help to kill the lice why because lice will hate the smell of it and do this process at night time before going to bed. Leave it on for overnight so that there is a chance to kill some little ones and even eggs. Sleep it with a towel on your head over pillow to prevent possible staining. Next day morning, you have to tie your hair in plaits and put a little bit more oil on it. Then comb your hair as regularly as you do to get rid of the lice Finally rinse your hair with tea tree oil contained shampoo and conditioner or you can add few drops of tea tree oil to your regular shampoo and conditioner.

6. Shampoo

  •  Take a teaspoon of tea tree oil and add a teaspoon of rosemary or eucalyptus oil to it Mix it well and pour this to your normal shampoo mixture Stir it well and use this to rinse your hair thoroughly. But make sure that while using eucalyptus oil, you have to extra care that it should not get it into mouth or eyes as this will cause irritation and pain. Repeating the process regularly will helps to prevent the head lice completely.

7. Baby Oil 

  • For another easy natural treatment for head lice, you will need baby oil, laundry detergent and some white vinegar. It is believed that baby oil, too, helps suffocate the head lice. Apply some baby oil on your hair and then comb your hair slowly so that lice start falling from your head. Then wash your hair with laundry detergent and hot water. Before bed, put some white vinegar on your hair and cover your head with a shower cap or towel. Leave it on overnight. In the morning, wash your hair with regular shampoo and then apply some conditioner. Repeat this process for at least three to four days to get positive results.

8. Garlic 

  • The strong fragrance of garlic can suffocate lice, ultimately killing them.Grind eight to 10 garlic cloves into a paste and mix in two to three teaspoons of lime juice. Apply the mixture thoroughly onto the scalp. Leave it on for a half an hour and then rinse the hair thoroughly with hot water.Alternatively, you can make a thick paste by combining fresh garlic juice with some cooking oil, lemon extract, green tea and some shampoo and conditioner. Coat the hair thoroughly with the paste.
