Garlic And Vaseline Combo To Get Rid Of Head Lice Quickly

Did you know there are various natural remedies against lice? Head lice are pretty annoying parasites that all affected people want to get rid of.

Unfortunately, when a louse epidemic is triggered in the area where you live and your children’s hair is infested, it will not be easy for you to fix the problem. After all, the lice can reproduce very quickly.
Even if they are not dangerous, there is no point in wearing them in our hair, hoping they can finally find a new home. Head lice won’t disappear like magic. In fact, the only way to remove them right away is cut your hair short…baldy short! And I’m sure you don’t really want that, that’s why I suggest trying the following remedies:


You need:

– 10-20 garlic cloves (this number depends on the hair length)

How to prepare?

– Peel off the garlic cloves and crush them in a mortar until you form a paste.
– Then apply the paste directly to the hair.
– Let it act for 1 hour.
– Finally, wash your hair with your regular shampoo.
– After the garlic remedy, try Vaseline!

How to use?

Apply a large amount of Vaseline to your hair, and then cover your head with a shower cap and leave the grease to act overnight.

The following morning, remove the Vaseline from your hair with baby oil, and then rinse with plenty of water. It’s advisable to comb your hair when showering.

Remember that Vaseline has a very sticky consistency and can clog the pores of the skin. For this reason, it’s not advisable to apply a big amount. Focus on your hair. Also, don’t apply this remedy for more than 3 consecutive days.
