Natural Remedy for Head Lice

Head lice can be contracted via schools and public places. Hair to hair contact is the general way in which the head lice are transferred.

Schools generally send children home with head lice until they are eliminated to prevent the spread.

Head lice can be difficult to treat and generally become somewhat immune if you use the regular treatment regularly. Harsh treatments are also not healthy for your child.

You can naturally get rid of head lice in several ways.
