Running your mouth seems to be your business. Gotta brag about cash because of other deficiencies you have.

my friends children have lice (they are not on benfits) and ive had to stop contact with her as she doesnt seem to care! As soon as i see my children itching i look through their hair. I pull every egg an lice out-even the tiniest lice. I found heating the eggs with hair straighteners loosend up the eggs. The lotion didnt seem to help and irritated my childrens head.

When I had scabies it was the most horrible thing , I felt uncomfortable around everyone and thought it would never end,there is a quick way to end your breakout safely. Permethrin does not work folks if you have had scabies for a couple weeks and it is dangerous.

Olive oil works. Grease them up and comb away...leave oil on for at least 8 hours. Shampoo out with dish detergent and search net for treatment schedule (it's about every 4 or so days for 3 weeks). Nit pick on the off days. Persistence!

Just use the cheapest Mayonaise you can find, before bed put it all over the head, place a plastic shower cap on over night, they will go nuts for awhile, and then they will be dead from suffocation. Leave it on all night.
I do not like chemicals on the head. and the lice can get resistant to the products that they sell for head lice.
Your hair will be soft and shiny. This has been proven to really work

look whatever people are saying to you dont believe it i mean olive oil and any other regular oil has grease lice want to eat more you know and so if you keep feeding them oil thats going to cause more lice. DUH!!! Grease is going to make it worse and so is mayonaise. SO my suggestion is that you should visit your doctor before touching anything at all i mean you waste $20000 by buying treatments that WONT WORK!!

There is lice removal center in Pittsburgh that sells an organic yeast based solution that works super well and is safe for kids. Me and my wife used it on our hair and it worked great. Just grab some of there product and one of there special nit combs and you are good to go. It will take about 2 weeks to get rid of em.

Look for LRC in Pittsburgh online you should find what you need!
