There are two different types of head lice:

Nits (lice eggs) - these look like dandruffs except it is more difficult to brush or shake them off your head.
Louse (baby lice) - usually grayish-white or tan. They feed on blood several times a day and can survive up to 2 days off the scalp.
Signs of having head lice: When you start to feel things moving around or tickling your heads.

What are ways to prevent head lice?


- Change your bed sheet and pillows regularly.
- Do not share things that touches the head.

Treatment

1. Medicated shampoo: This is usually prescribed by your doctor or you can purchase them in a pharmacy or herbal store.
2. Comb and oil treatment: Coat the hair with olive or almond oil, section hair and use a lice comb to get rid of lice. Then rinse it out with shampoo. Remember to wash all the towels used and clean out the lice comb by soaking it in vinegar for 30 minutes. Continue this procedure for a week to make sure all the lice are gone.
3. Essential oil treatment: Mix 2 ounces of olive oil with 15-20 drops of essential oils. Then apply the solution to the scalp. Leave it on overnight. Then shampoo in the morning and comb out the hair. Repeat the process until the lice have been eliminated. Then use an essential oil spray for preventive treatment (spray recipe: Mix 15 - 20 drops of essential oil in 4 ounces of rubbing alcohol. Store the solution in a spray bottle and saturate the hair with it for 12 hours. )

Oh yeah mayo killed them all haven't had lice since
When I was younger I used to have lice. My neighbors and us used to pass it back and forth. We used the shampoo and boiled the brushes but they kept coming back. One day while getting picked up from the nurse because of it she suggested mayo. Covering your head in it then putting a bag over all of your hair. Kills them all as well as eggs. I still use mayo because it's good for my hair lol
It is Amy
@stargaze Isn't dandruff just a dry, flaking scalp? I don't think it involves parasites!
My 3 year old got lice from school and the nurse told me use mayonnaise. My mom and grandma told me 1 cup mayo plus an egg mixed.

Do You Also Have These Questions About Wigs?
People who don't know much about wigs will always have a lot of questions. If you want to have smooth and shiny wigs, you need some methods. 1. How do I know to choose the right to capsize? Choosing the proper cap size for a wig is the first and most important step. You can measure the circumference of the head and select full lace wigs human hairaccordingly to the different sizes available. And here is a capsize measurement method chart from West Kiss Hair Store. If you take your measurements and you find that there is no capsize that fits you. West Kiss can also customize the cap size for you. 2. Can the hair be dyed? The natural black hair can be dyed or bleached to any color you want, except #613 hair. As a general rule, it is easier to darken the hair than to lighter the hair. Highly recommend letting the professional hairdresser do the color things, improper dying will ruin the hair. Do not dye or bleach hair too frequently, because that will damage the hair badly. If you're worried that you will damage your HD wig by coloring your hair incorrectly, West Kiss has a variety of different colored bundles with closure wigs for you to choose from. 3. How to Comb the hair? When brushing use a soft bristle brush or Use a smooth-edged wide-toothed comb start at the ends of your hair and gently work your way up, in this way it avoids tangling and pulling damage. Always brush in a downward motion and do not brush harshly. 4. Which lace I should choose if I am light skin? There are three types of lace for the customers to choose from Medium brown lace, transparent lace, and HD lace. If you are light skin, then I suggest you choose transparent curly lace wigs or HD lace wigs. Actually, HD lace can match all skin tones. It's an update of transparent lace. That’s the reason why HD lace wigs are more expensive than other lace wigs. 5. Why did my body wave wig lose the pattern after washing? Most body wave wigs are styled by high-temperature steam and without chemical processing to keep them in natural condition and long lifetime, so the hair texture will looser after washing. You can use the curling iron or other tools to restyle the hair to make the wave, the hair will be more beautiful. 6. How to choose a trusted merchant? Nowadays, many websites or shops sell human hair wigs on the market. What kind of seller is trustworthy? First, wigs must be made from 100% human hair. Secondly, keep adequate stock of hair all year round. Usually, only sellers with their own factories can do this. Finally, use safe payment methods. This is the most important, only a secure payment method can guarantee the security of the customer's property. If you are not familiar with human hair wigs or have not yet found a suitable website to buy wigs, then I strongly recommend West Kiss Hair. They have been selling hair for more than ten years. You can buy the lace front wigs, human hair bundles, or lace closures you want at West Kiss. The professional customer service representative will be at your service all the time. Even if you buy a wig you don't like, West Kiss also offers 15 days return or exchange for no reason.

But which are the best ring candles? We’ve reviewed 5 of the best ring candles, that not only provide a variety of different rings and jewelry to choose from. But that also offers delightful scents and fragrances. One of the reasons ring candles are popular is that often you don’t know which specific ring or piece of jewelry you’ll get, so it’s a nice surprise to discover which you have found. This variety appeals to many, however, sometimes the variety might be too much for some and you might find a ring or piece of jewelry you don’t like. There are some ring candle manufacturers that may provide a random ring from a variety, but all these rings will be a similar style and not vary in appearance too much. So bear this in mind when you’re making your ring choices. Often people will forget to make sure that their jewelry candle actually has a ring that fits their finger. Most will have a good range of sizes for most people’s fingers, however, some have more choice of ring size than others. So make sure you buy a ring of the candle a ring the right size that actually can fit your finger! When you’re considering the scent of your candle, bear in mind not only the name on the label but also accompanying fragrances as these can have a big impact. You also want to bear in mind the scent throw of the candle (e.g. how well the candle ‘throw’s off iits scent/how strong the scent is when burning), as people have different preferences for how strong they want their candles to smell.
