  • lice like "clean" hair. always put something like hairspray, gel or moose (i know that is an animal but I don't know how to spell the hair stuff since I don't use it) Put girls hair in ponytails or braids.

  • Lice LOVE CLEAN HAIR.... So I always put hair gel in my little mans hair... He got them three times due to a follow mom not getting rid of them on her kids, which got them from a day care... I had to buzz my sons hair, but since he turned two he fixes his hair in a fohawk or spikes & hasn't gotten them

    also you can try any kind of coconut hair care.... Lice dislike it... ALOT

    & for you mommas who have kids that get lice & dont want it yourself, straighters, blow dyers, hair dye all help!!!!!!

  • use shampoo with coconut oils in it and i also spray my daughters hair with hairspray every morning... a couple years ago she got it and kept getting it back and since we started doing these things she hasnt gotten it....

  • Remove lice, clean out nits, and use coconut oil or baby oil - the lice don't like the oils and can't cling on. Luckily my girls don't get them anymore.
