Home Remedies for Head Lice
Head lice are fairly common, especially among small children. They are easy to spread and can be quite irritating. However, they do not carry any diseases and there are many things that you can do to get rid of them on your own.
One of the most useful things that you can use to get rid of lice is a lice comb. For about three weeks, every morning and evening, you can simply comb infected hair with this comb. In addition to this, there are also some other items that you can combine with this to help speed up the process.
Tea tree oil and olive oil are a couple of items that you can apply to the scalp to help kill off head lice. This will help to suffocate the head lice so that you can remove them easily. While many people use Vaseline or mayonnaise, this is not recommended because they are extremely messy and difficult to wash out of the hair.
Essential oil is also very effective in treating head lice. Mix 20 drops of the essential oil with about 4 ounces of rubbing alcohol and place it in a spray bottle. You can then saturate the hair with the mixture and leave it in for about 12 hours before rinsing it out.
Home Remedies for Head Lice,
Be careful when and how you use it
I bought into the hype and broke down and tried this product. After all, how can you resist something that claims that the fat is literally taken out of some of the food that you eat! I must say, though, pay attention to the directions on the package. I used it for a few days with none of the negative effects that many people experience. But during those times I ate fairly healthy meals and nothing too fatty. Then I went out with friends and didn't think about the fact I had taken these pills. I ate chicken wings, blue cheese and french fries. And spent most of the night and a good portion of the next day with several occasions of racing to the bathroom because of digestive issues. I suppose it shows that it does remove "stuff" from your diet because I sometimes have issues going at all and with using this product I went several times a day. But is it worth the risk? Besides, I have no idea if taking the pill was making a difference in my weight loss or if I was having success because I was being more careful in my food choices leading to lower calorie intake.
Weight Loss through Fear of Embarrassment
Was excited to try Alli, heard such great things. Did not see anything for the first couple days I took this. Then came the HORRIBLE side effects. Oily, greasy residue in your underwear and the toilet, and the smell. Oh my gosh. It was awful. Talk about eating healthy - for fear of what this will do to you. Didn't even finish the first bottle it was so terrible.
