Lice love my hair
(Las Vegas, NV)
No kidding, I have had head lice at least three times in my life, they love certain types of hair. I am Caucasian/Italian with med course hair. A moving guy helped me move my bed into a new place and I am sure that he and his son had head lice. A couple of weeks later, I started to notice the itching. My mattress was covered with little brown lice. Sprayed the whole thing down with chemicals and then vacuumed it.
I refuse to use chemicals on my head,(they don't work) so I tried the Tea Tree first. Initially the tea tree oil was put in my shampoo and that started to help with the infestation. Then I read about Neem. Unfortunately, I am not completely free after one year of lice. I use both the neem and the tea tree oil together in my shampoo and on my head at night when I sleep.
The eggs are easy to see, but when they hatch, these things are like grains of sand, impossible to pick out, much less pick a live one out. I continue to use olive oil packs for hours at a time. I feel that I am being reinfested. Probably why I still have it.
Believe me I do everything and have studied how to clean everything etc. One whole year of this and I am ready to move into a new place and start over. Neem has helped to control this situation, but I still feel that maybe the carpet or something...
These things die when they have no blood source. It just does not make sense to me. I don't have close contact with anyone and no one sleeps with me. I give up. I comb and comb and comb my hair with lotions, cream rinse, olive oil, you name it I have tried it and still have head lice. What to do?????
