Today in the Huffington Post I read about ‘super lice’ and it’s resistance to ‘traditional treatment’. What a load of crap! And I say that in the most disgusted manner. Why are we amazed at creation’s ability to evolve to save itself? And why on Earth are we dumbfounded when life becomes resistant to human’s insane chemicals? We have seen resistant bacteria, super weeds and other man-made problems all thanks to our love of better living through chemistry.
Not once in the article did it give alternatives to junk science. Out of 2000 or so parents surveyed 68% said nothing in the chemical aisle worked for their child. Good going Big Pharma!
I am here to give you an answer to the lice problem. It isn’t new either. Some ten or so years ago our little, at the time, family came down with lice. Having a new baby on the way we were not keen on chemicals on me or the rest of us, so my husband asked the pharmacist who in turn showed him an electric comb that kills lice. No chemicals needed! It worked brilliantly. Within a few hours our hair was clear of the little critters. Within days there were less and within a few weeks we were clear of the memory.
Now let’s be clear on this, the house must be cleaned. Hot water washes and dryers can come in handy. But a lice can only live for two days without a host so just by using the electric comb everyday for a week you have the battle won. The kids will even do it themselves. No bad smell, no chemicals, no embarrassment, just clean hair and happy family! Remember,too, if one person has it in the house then more than likely others do too.
This product is still available. One source is called LiceGuard for about 30 dollars. If you have to buy a chem shampoo more than once for more than one person then this is cheap! And you can use it again and again. You can clear the bugs AND not contribute to the growing SUPER BUG problem.
There are other home remedies but none are as quick an easy as this. We have used a vinegar rinse on our hair to loosen the glue of the egg sacs. It gives your hair a nice shine as well!
Good living!I used this product and did not get compensation for this post, though it would be nice!
