No one wants a head full of lice.
Lice are tiny flightless parasites that feed on blood in order to thrive and multiply. What's worse about these creatures, aside from the itchiness they bring, is that it they are contagious due to their ability to jump long distances.
Whether you are a kid or an adult, getting lice is quite easy.
Although they do not pose a serious health threat initially, these annoying insects could cause an inflamed scalp which could lead to infection when left untreated.
The market nowadays provides various products that are marketed as being effective in treating lice problems, however, some of them are not only expensive but also ineffective. These commercial products also often contain chemicals that could harm the hair and scalp.
Another way to treat this problem is the traditional way of combing the hair. Unfortunately, this method lasts for hours and must be done meticulously. Otherwise, the lice can lay eggs and the problem will continue.
Fortunately, there is a better solution that can get rid of these pests! This amazing home remedy is said to be quite effective.

3. Afterward, wash the hair with vinegar and then cover it with a shower cap or a plastic bag again and let it rest for an hour. The vinegar will kill any eggs the lice might have laid.
