DIY Lice Prevention: How to Make Head Lice Prevention Shampoo by Heather Holter
Why wait until you need to deal with hard-to-get-rid-of parasites, like lice, living on your child's head and all the cleaning that is involved? I suggest preventing lice all together! The first step is to teach your children the rules:
- No head-to-head contact with other children, sharing combs, brushes, coats, hats and sweatshirts or lying on carpet in classrooms.
- At sleepovers, bring your own bedding and leave a fair amount of space between yourself and friend's bedding.
- No sleeping together on the same bed or pillow.
And there are things you can do to help prevent your child from getting lice:
- Before school, spray children's hair with lice prevention spray (recipe below).
- Put girls' hair in a tight ponytail and spray with a lot of hairspray.
Whenever your child bathes, wash your child's hair with lice prevention shampoo (recipe below). When making the following recipes, be sure to use 100-percent pure essential oils that are steam distilled or cold pressed for the extraction process.
Also, make sure they come from a botanical plant source and don't contain synthetics or impurities. I get mine from Melaleuca. Other companies that provide good-quality essential oils are Young Living and DoTerra.
