I am totally baffled why so many people are so confused about lice treatment.

All that is required is a $1.09 bottle of 91% isopropyl alcohol from any drugstore. This treatment kills 100% of all lice in the first few seconds of application. I'm not certain yet, but I'm fairly sure that the eggs do not survive either.

I found lice on my daughter this morning (used alcohol and they are all dead) and have been searching the web for the best way to dislodge the attached eggs (I think heating the eggs with a hair dryer is probably the most efficient method). I can't beleive so many people do not know about this simple technique.

For one, the fumes sting the eyes and all that alcohol is absorbed through the skin not to mention the scratches the kids have on their heads from itching (poor things)OUCH! Nothing kills nits. Try going to www.licesolutions.org to learn all the true info about head lice.

Children's scalps absorb 80% of anything that is out on them. Isopropyl alcohol is toxic to children and their underdeveloped immune systems are not yet able to cope. So is anything that contains chemicals that attack the nervous system of the lice (and your children).

Another poster here (Susan) and I are members of a website called Live Lice Free http://www.livelicefree.com - the remedy is completely non-toxic, 100% natural and only costs a few dollars to make up.

Good luck!

That is insane it is not safe. The sores on the head will kill using that and never mind standing next to anything that might cause it to start on fire. Then it would dry the hair and scalp out you would then be scratching because it is to dry....And it wouldn't kill the eggs you would have to continue to treat it daily to rid it all. 7-10 days depending on the amount you have. I think people need to read more on things before they make a suggestion of this nature it is not responsible and if you want to use it you are taking a risk but for the love of god don't tell others to try it....

Definately dont put rubbing alcohol on your head, it can cause seizures!! Its not safe at all!!!! Good golly, miss molly. Anyway, be sure you use natural products. we used www.licetokill.com and the lice are gone. THANK YOU GOD!! We almost cut our daughters hair off, but didn't. I was in tears for days it was horrible...but the nightmare is over.

never heard of neon nits, but thats interesting, thanks for sharing!Lice CAN be stopped...they will not win! We also keep our daughters hair in braids now, and no more "borrowing" hats from her friends...sheesh!

As someone who is concsious of chemicals and the possible effects they have on our children,I was pleased to see that safetrap is usda certified organic.Other products can say they are natural, but without the certification there are no real standards. I bought this for my daughter and it worked very quickly without any odor.

Any mother should buy this if she is concerned about her child's exposure to chemical treatments and possible dangerous side effects or if your child has allergies...use chemicals on bugs not on kids

i do agree with the rubbing alcohol method...it absolutely works!!!kills everything on the spot!!! and as long as you dont use it continuously all day every day...i dont see where it can really do any harm...also, you dont drown your childs head in it...we just saturated it, waited a few minutes, then washed it out...we went almost 2 years battling lice and nothing seemed to be as effective as rubbing alcohol!!!!!

My suggestion to those who are all for dousing their kids with alcohol is to try it on your own hair first. See how long you can stand it before putting it on your child.

For the families who are looking for a more natural approach, Nit Picky offers both products to treat on your own and a service that will come directly to your home and help you get through this process. It typically takes about an hour per person for treatment.

Many people think that because they are using "natural" methods, they are safe. But, think twice before you put ANYTHING on your child's scalp.

The scalp is one of the most absorbent parts of the body – especially in children, and products that are applied to the scalp get picked up directly by the bloodstream, without being filtered in any way.  That means anything being put on the skin is being dumped directly into your child’s system.

Many parents run immediately to the drug store to pick up Rid or Nix, but pesticide based lice shampoos are full of chemicals that are known or suspected to cause cancer, negatively affect the nervous system, or have other harmful effects.

The safest, most effective way of eliminating lice in your child's hair is manual lice removal.

I just did it this morning. Left it on my pinned up waist length hair for half an hour. No problem whatsoever. Total cost $3 and I still have half the bottle left.
