Head Lice & Nit Shampoo Bar
9 in stock
Head lice! Nits! Every parent dreads finding these right? So, when you find them, what do you do? Buy a shampoo specifically designed to get rid of the little blighters!
How do you choose the shampoo that’s right for your family?
Are you keen to try a natural way to treat head lice and nits? Would you like to avoid industrial chemicals which are not necessarily effective in treating lice?
Whilst wet-combing has been shown to be the most effective method for removing all eggs and lice, it is time consuming, and your little one may not be willing to sit still for long. Treatment with essential oils helps to cut down on combing time.
Using this bar is easy. Rub the bar onto wet hair until it forms a good lather. Leave the shampoo on your hair for 3-5 minutes, rinse, and condition as normal. (I use 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar mixed with 250mls warm water from the shower. Mix in a few drops of tea-tree oil to prevent the return of head lice and nits). Use a nit comb to get rid of the stunned/dead lice.
You can use this shampoo as a preventative measure (The little critters hate the smell of neem oil!). It has also shown to be effective in treating dandruff.
Ingredients: Olive oil, coconut oil, neem oil, castor oil, shea butter, lye, water, essential oils of tea-tree and eucalyptus
