  • Placer mining operations 1960s
    I enjoy watching the television shows about mining in Alaska…. May I say they are nothing like this video shows about mining in the 60s. I know that I have said on some of these videos that my back aches watching people work so hard…. When I watched this one, I not only thought that […]

postheadericon Getting Rid of Head Lice

I received a question on my Facebook Page from someone who’s daughter was getting head lice at school.
This is the question and what I replied back to her.

My daughter keeps getting head lice from school. Do you think rubbing DE in her scalp might get rid of them? And would it be safe? Thanks

You bet… diatomaceous.net/flying-and-crawling-bugs/ There is a bit about it on that page… Cover your daughters eyes and nose area with a moist washcloth.I would sprinkle DE on dry hair you may even want to rub it so it gets down onto the scalp…. using a fine tooth comb… comb it also … your goal is to get it on all of the hair strands. Cover with a shower cap or wrap securely with a towel and leave on all night. In the morning shampoo the DE out of the hair and use that fine tooth comb again. Rinse with a solution of 1 cup vinegar and 2 Tablespoons of water…. don’t get that in the eyes.
DE is very drying so make sure you use a conditioner after you have used the shampoo.
If there is itching or irritation remove the DE with shampoo and apply a conditioner.
Your hands will be dry after applying DE so wash them good, you may want to apply a lotion to your hands as well.

Treat everyone and everything at the same time…. other wise they will still be there. You may have to repeat this treatment a few times to make sure that you have gotten all of the eggs as well as the lice.
Please keep us posted on how this works out for you.
