Kids are back at school and those classrooms are breeding grounds for something that every parent dreads. Lice! Sarah Cregan, co - owner of Combers KC, debunks myths of those itchy bugs and explains how to really get rid of them quickly and effectively. Myth 1: Lice gravitates to dirty or unhygienic hair and scalp. Fact 1: False, Head Lice PREFERE clean hair and scalps. This allows them to move more freely through hair as well as allows their nits to bond strong hold to hair strand. Myth 2: Head Lice can jump and fly, making them highly contagious. Myth 3: Hair color, mayonnaise, coconut oil, vinegar and Vaseline kill bugs and their nits. Fact 3: False, Hair color does nothing to aid in treatment of Head Lice and nits. While thick consistencies such as mayo, coconut oil and Vaseline can sometimes be effective in killing adult bugs, they have little to no effect on killing nit or baby louse. Nits MUST be manually removed from hair strand to kill it. Myth 4: Over counter Head Lice treatments are safe and effective. Fact 4: False, many Over counter products are highly concentrated pesticides that can be absorbed through skin and into our blood stream. They are also ineffective, Head louse have built up resistance to pesticides and they also do nothing to kill nit. Myth 5: Head Lice can survive OFF scalp for up to two weeks, as well as live on carpets of our homes or on our family pets. Fact 5: False, Head Lice can only survive OFF scalp for 24 - 48 hours. They can not live in any other species, their only food source is human blood. Dogs and many other animals have their own form of lice, that in turn, can not survive on a human head. Always use All Natural Treatment products, such as Happy Heads. Check all members living in the household, treat all members infect. Have good quality nit comb, such as Terminator comb and comb thoroughly. Break hair up into manageable sections. Follow up weekly to ensure you have got it all out. Don't stress yourself treating your home. Focus on getting rid of bugs and nits from your head. Once every trace of Head Lice has been eradicate, begin your prevention routine, You are now more susceptible to future Head Lice outbreaks.

4. Clean, Clean, Clean

On scale of worthless mumbo jumbo to hey, it really work, coconut oil falls somewhere in the middle. In a clinical trial composed by Medical Entomology Centre in the UK, researchers found the combination of anise spray and coconut oil outperformed traditional over - counter lice treatment chemicals, specifically permethrin lotion. Out of 50 patients, 41% were cured using this combination, while only 23% were cured using permethrin lotion. First, permethrin's declining effectiveness as a standalone treatment for head lice has been well document. As a pesticide, it is only natural that head lice would eventually build up immunity, making them less susceptible to treatment. As these so - called super lice have grown more resistant to insecticides, effectiveness of chemicals has declined significantly. The second reason is little less obvious. Coconut oil itself acts much like mayonnaise, olive oil, and most other oil - base solutions that rely on their viscosity to suffocate lice and loosen bonds. We prefer it over those other methods only because it provides nutrients to your hair that other concentrates do not. But what makes the treatment in the study so effective is not necessarily coconut oil, but rather anise oil with which it was mixed. In previous post, we discussed the valuable role essential oils can play, and this also applies to anise oil. Before you rush to your local apothecary and buy their supply of anise oil, consider that tea tree oil, much more prevalent and easy - to - get essential oil, is even more effective. In fact, we use tea tree oil as an active ingredient in our lice treatment products, and highly recommend it as a preventative solution. Apply bonding agent - this can be coconut oil or Nit Zapping Clenz Cream. This helps loosen lice from hair and can also help suffocate some active lice. Mix with essential oils - tea tree or anise oil both work fine. Leave in for a few hours, then comb out the lice and pick nits. This is the most important step - be sure to purchase a special lice comb for this - regular combs are not fine or strong enough to comb out active lice. Wash hair with cleansing shampoo. Again, no need to add harmful chemicals here; shampoo with lots of essential oils works just fine! Repeat as necessary. There is no substitute for good old - fashion combing and Nit picking. Hair Fairies have been the leader in manual removal process for almost 20 years, and this has proven to be the single most effective head lice treatment option. Chemicals come and go, and there is no limit to the number of oil - base compounds you can choose to apply to your scalp, but at the end of the day, there is nothing better than having a qualified professional comb and pick your problems away.

The Statement

Coconut oil has been gaining attention as a possible treatment for Head Lice. Head Lice are tiny, blood - sucking insects that live and lay eggs on your scalp. They cause itching and irritation, and infestation can cause mild complications IF leave untreated. Lice is also extremely contagious. Lauric acid in coconut oil may help kill lice. This treatment is not as effective as other over - counter treatments for lice, but it is less toxic to your body. Coconut oil might be a viable option for people who ca tolerate stronger treatments.

The Verdict

Base on evidence, AAP FactCheck has found the post to be mostly false. The post states that coconut oil dissolves lices outer skeletal shell instantly, and that all lice will be killed and disappear. Two experts tell AAP FactCheck that were no products available to guarantee this remedy. While Professor Craig Williams says there was some evidence to show coconut oil repels head lice, both experts say there were more effective treatments. There have been no proven studies to suggest apple cider vinegar works as a treatment. Partly False - claim of content is a mixture of accurate and inaccurate, or primary claim is misleading or incomplete.

Summing It Up

Coconut Oil has about 80% kill rate for lice bugs. I recommend leaving it on scalp for at least 8 hours. You can add essential oils to coconut as desire to increase its effectiveness. Coconut Oil does nothing to affect lice eggs. If you leave lice eggs in your hair, they will hatch. If you plan to use home remedy for lice, then Coconut Oil is one of the better ones. But, even if youre using a decent home remedy like Coconut Oil, it is only going to kill a percentage of lice bugs, and it wo kill any of the lice eggs. So, you should anticipate retreating every 5 days for several weeks. On the other hand, if you want to Get Rid of Lice quickly, then you should check out How to Get Rid of Lice Like Pro!
