Alternative Head Lice Treatments

When your regular anti-lice shampoo just wont work on your kid, or on yourself  (yeah sometimes when it gets too warm and you’re always outside, adults can catch it too! eww *sob* )

Funny that when I was a kid, I’m always playing on the streets outside with neighbor kids, and  yes, I get the occasional lice during summer. My mom would by “kwell” but time came when it just didnt work anymore. The lice still stayed there, bouncing around sipping my blood happily. Gross I know.

Then I remember, mom would resort to pouring beer all over my hair and leave it on until it is dry. Then rinse it off afterwards. Lice are dead! All dead! And she would use a fine tooth comb to remove those icky dead creatures.

Did you know that beer is a good treatment for lice? Besides that, it’s also good for our hair. It makes it shinier, bouncier, and more volumized! The smell doesnt last long and will wash away once rinsed off.

Another alternative is pure cane vinegar (which is also great for our hair mind you) the scent is milder than synthetic vinegar and will be gone once dried out.

Be careful in putting though it might get into your kids’ eye and it will sting!
