A step-by-step guide on keeping kids free from nits and lice without using chemicals.
It’s difficult these days keeping your kids totally free of nits and lice. I have found an easy, natural and cheap way to combat this nagging problem.
- Mix about 6 drops of tea tree essential oil into 100ml of water and keep this in a bottle with a spray top.
- Every morning before, or every afternoon after school, spray sections of the hair with this mixture and comb thoroughly with a nit comb. Search the hair occasionally to make sure you aren’t missing any bits.
- This sounds like hard work, but it takes just a few minutes and it does work. I have three kids, (two girls with immensely curly, waist-length hair) I wake up five minutes earlier each day to do this and have managed to keep my kids totally nit/lice free, since I started this nearly 2 years ago. A far cry from all the chemicals I had to use in the past.
If the hair dries out, a light serum, after the combing will put the sheen right back in.
