The lice fight is back every year in schools, it bothers, it itches ... we do not know how to get rid of it! If the brushes are exchanged at home, it can quickly turn into a nightmare! Yep, it's not a very glamorous subject but very useful advice, especially when you have little things at home. Rest assured natural solutions exist.

Here are our tips for removing lice from your hairbrushes:

Start by removing all the hair from your brush and then wash it well. You can find all the steps to properly wash your brush in a dedicated article.

 

First tip: confinement

Simple and effective: Place your brush in a closed plastic bag, leave it for at least 48 hours or place it for 3 hours in the freezer (lice hate the cold). Following this step, thoroughly clean the pins of any residue. Remember to let your brush thaw before using it again to avoid damaging it.

 

Second tip: vegetable oils

You can use coconut oil, olive oil ..., they are very effective because they have an asphyxiant power on lice. Soak the pins (only the pins) in 2 to 3 cm of oil. Leave on for at least two hours before rinsing. For more effectiveness, you can add a few drops of essential oils to the vegetable oil. The most effective is obviously lavender essential oil, but you can also use lemon or rosemary essential oil which has insecticidal and antibacterial properties.

Third tip: white vinegar

 

This is a great weapon for cleaning your brush and removing lice in an environmentally friendly way. However, it should be used with caution because it can sometimes irritate the scalp. Soak the pins (only the pins) in 2 to 3 cm, remove your brush and leave for about 2 hours. Rinse and wash your brush.

 

And There you go ! You now have all the tips to eradicate lice from your brush.

 

A little tip, apply this simple rule: one hairbrush or comb per person. Personalize your brush so as not to confuse them!
