easy lice removal, promised someone

When I was a kid, lice was something from history books. But today, and when my kids were growing up, lice was something that fell in history books, or from head to head. One of those undesireable side effects of letting the kids meet others and frequently caught by adults.

When I was battling those little itchy bugs, a neighbor gave me a suggestion that develped into my "easy lice removal" method.

Three days of cheap salad, or baby, oil in the hair. Twice a day add more and comb out the bugs and eggs with a fine-toothed comb. Wipe the junk off of the comb with tissues or toilet paper.

By the end of three days, bugs and eggs all dead. Double shampoo and you're set. Just doesn't and can't promise that you'll never have the problem again. If so, repeat oiling. At least it's non-poisonous and non-irritating. You may want to wear clothes, or dress your kid in clothes that can survive the oil, or you don't mind throwing out.

Hello Batya,

I hope all is well. I wanted to bring to your attention a resource for lice that I think would be a great addition to you site. Healthline has a lice buyer’s guide that allows you to find the best lice treatment for your family.

You can see the guide here:

I am writing to ask if you would include this as a resource on your page:

Our buyer’s guide for lice products allows users to search for lice treatments in 5 different categories, view ratings and reviews for specific products, and receive information on where to purchase products.

Please consider adding this as a resource to your site as I believe it would be great value to your users.

I’m happy to answer any additional questions.

Thanks so much,
