No, but I've read that it works too. And tea tree oil too?

Sorry, thank goodness we haven't had lice.

I hope it's gone soon!!

Look up Cetaphil face washl. It works great, isn't toxic & is easy. There are a couple good websites that tell how to use it. I'm on my phone & can't fibd them right now.

My DD also had lice and I tried olive oil. It seemed to work on the adult lice, but not the eggs. I went to walgreens and tried about every product out there. (She kept getting reinfested at school). I gave up on the all natural stuff because it simply didn't work. I was about the pull all my hair out at my last attempt to find a good product that worked and wasn't time consuming. Believe it or not I actually found one! It is called Licefreee Spray. (Freee is not a typo that is the name of the product). It is non-toxic, has no harmful pesticide residue, is environmentally safe, and contains the stainless steel lice comb. (That comb is the best by far! Don't waist your money on the plastic ones. They do not work well). You don't have to wash the hair at all you just spray and comb out the lice and eggs. So easy to use and it was very effective. You can take a look at the product on Walgreens.com. That is where I found it. I bought it in-store though not on-line. Sorry to sound like an infomercial, but I was at the end of my rope and this product saved me from going crazy. Good luck and I hope this is helpful!

Diatomaceous Earth should do the trick if you're looking for a natural way to get rid of them...

I know tea tree oil and a eucalyptus shampoo (I think??). Good luck!

We just dealt with this. Melted coconut oil and added TTO. Coated hair and let it sit. Lice combed And we've been good since

My daughters school gives this to you when they get sent home with lice

Don't forget to treat the carseats too! Anything that is soft but a nonwash item needs to go in a trash bag, tied up for at least a week. Hope you find a solution!
