Head lice can be a real problem for families with small children in primary school. It seems that once the lice begin to be spread around the school it takes forever for them to all be stopped. You can use Neem oil to treat the heads of children and adults that are infected with head lice.
What you need
You will need to gather a few items before you apply the Neem oil to get rid of the lice.
A large piece of plastic, or a plastic garbage bag
Applying the Neem Oil
Use the following steps to apply the Neem oil to the affected scalp.
Apply the raw Neem oil to the head of the person by having the person lie down with the plastic spread under their head. The plastic will stop the oil from running all over the area the person is lying on. Be sure you saturate the hair completely with the Neem oil, and massage it into the scalp well.
Let the oil remain on the hair and scalp for a period on one hour
Towel dry the hair and leave a towel around the shoulders of the person you are treating
Take the person into a well lit area such as outside in the yard or on the patio. The sunlight will allow you to see the eggs and the nits that cling to the shaft of the hair better. Then use the small tooth comb to section their hair and comb through it to remove any eggs or remaining nits. These nits and eggs will likely be on hair follicles at the very back of the head or at the temples. They are usually clear or white in color and are very hard to see especially if the hair you are treating is blonde or light in color. The hair may still be slightly oily from the application of the Neem oil but this will allow the comb to slide through the hair more easily.
Allow the hair to dry after combing and do not wash it again for two days and after two days repeat the application of the Neem oil.
Once you have gotten rid of the lice put a small amount of Neem oil into your favorite shampoos and use it regularly to avoid a re-infestation
It is a myth that people who get lice have dirty heads. Lice like beautiful clean hair and will not go to the head of an individual with oily or greasy hair. If your child is getting lice from school you may want to massage a very small amount of Neem oil into their hair and allow it to stay there all of the time to discourage the lice from jumping onto their heads. You can also spray their hair with hairspray to help deter the lice.
