Headlice. Vaseline smothers head lice

Submitted by Helen

Vaseline will suffocate head lice. This can actually be the nest treatment for head live. Smother the hair right down to the roots. Leave on for 30 minutes. Shampoo with dish soap or any other degreasing soap.

It takes about 6 shampoos to get it out.

More time, easier to get out Comments By: Anon on 2005-01-29
I have found that you should wait at least 9 hours to effectively kill the nits. Baby oil before washing will help get the vaseline out.
