These Lice Clinics of America owners from across the country have heard clients tell of many wacky home remedies they tried, but failed with. Read on for some of the strangest head lice treatment ideas reported by families across the USA.
**Please do not try any of these at home, as some seem down right dangerous!**
Gerry Wolburg, Owner of www.virginialiceremoval.com in Virginia: “We had a boy show up at Virginia Lice Removal with Vaseline in his head!”
Kristen Hollingsworth, Owner of www.lcadanvers.com in Massachusetts: “Mixing up eggs and putting it on the kid’s head, then letting it harden like a helmet thinking it would suffocate the lice and nits”
Timika Downes, Owner of www.liceclinicsmedford.com in Massachusetts: “Putting hot towels straight from the dryer on the kids’ heads, and then dousing them with olive oil”
Judy Hinant Hayden, Owner of www.liceclinicslexington.com in Kentucky: “Putting Noxema in the hair. Even after washing it out, the family came in for treatments and the heat from the AirAlle’ caused the remnants of the Noxema to fluff up like little puffs of shaving cream in the hair!”
Suzanne Danita, Owner of www.liceclinicsevansville.com in Indiana: “One family said they were so desperate after several failed treatments, that they soaked their daughter’s hair in kerosene”.
Tanya Kensley, Owner of www.liceclinicsfortcollins.com in Colorado: “Mayonnaise with a large zip lock bag over it. She actually showed up at the clinic like this”
Jacqueline Huynh, Owner of www.liceclinicssf.com in California: “Mayonnaise, followed by tea-tree shampoo and coconut oil”.
Marianne Gonsalves , Manager of www.lcabraintree.com and www.lcanorton.com in Massachusetts: “She put a bunch of her family’s belongings into a rented storage space, moved the family in with her mother for two weeks and bug bombed her apartment”.
