as the proud parent of 5 school age children head lice are something of a specialty aroung here. commercial poisons are shit and don't kill lice, chemicals just seem to stun them.
your main goal is suffocation. with the kids i've found that cheap hair conditioner slathered on thick and left on overnight sorts em right out.......but that just aint gunna work with dreads. whatever you use needs to be thick enough to suffocate them. my suggestions: cooking oil (dunno how the oil would effect dreads...) aloe vera pulp? something thick and goopy that will stay in overnight. i'd also add a few drops of tea tree/ lavender or eucalyptus oil to the mix as a poisoning agent.
if the lice have laid eggs you will need to repeat this process a minumum of every three days so any newly hatched lice are suffocated before they reach egg laying age.
* lice will only lay eggs very close to the scalp so any eggs found on hair more than 1cm away from scalp have already hatched and u don't need to worry about them. if you keep suffocating the adults you really dont need to worry about brushing out anything
* lice can only live for max 24 hours without feeding so it isn't absolutly necsessary to boil every thing in your house! i'd just make a point of soaking/washing any sheets/ pillow cases and hair accessories anything that can't be washed can be quarantined in a garbage bag for that 24 hrs until the lice starve
Tea tree oil for the win.
hey man, check this stuff i found on the dreadlocktruth website it sounds pretty good, http://dreadlocktruth.com/community/index.php?name=Forums&file=...
ok i wanted to fill u all in on wat we tried and ouyr experinces (mostly mine)

1st off let me stresss one point, acting fast is very verty important!
due to multiple disasters we were unable to act fast and several weeks went by wit only 1 barely effective treatment, and no housecleanning done, te result was te infestation getting extremely bad, and causing near insanity dealling wit the constant itching
i was picking out bugs bout 100 a day and burning em wit a lighter
but still it got worse and worse till my head was swollen and bloody

te semi effective ting we tried was mayonase, it killed some but cevy insisted i didnt need to treat beard or all of dreaDS ONLY TOP 3 inches so it killed just a few and te mayo was very hard to rince out

insanity prevention was only accomplised by constant teatree use, putting teatree al;l over my scalp prevented most bitting for a couple ours or so, allowinjg at least an ours sleep (for 2 weeks i didnt get more then an ours nap in now and ten)
15 minafter teatree stopped preventing bites id be ripping my scalp to peices scratcing like crazy and cursing loudly involuntarily

they got worse and worse i was pulling most of te air around my ears out (easiest place to find alot to piuck out and burn) ten my neck trought shoulders arms started being bit up badly till i ad a severe ras like condition that burned
finaly i eneded up moving out unable to deal wit it anymore (te house needed to be bombed, blankets and pillows were infested and were not being dealt with)

so now im back in philly in a otel for 3 days and bug free finaly
soon as i got ere i poured alcahol all over my hhead ..it burned so bad due to the condition of my scalp, but witin a minute it started raining dead bugs by te hundreds
i planned on leaving it on 1/2 hour, but te burning was too intence so barely did 10 minutes
but it was enough, undreds more came out in te rince
i followedr tat by pouring vinagar over my head..wic also burned very badly, left tat on only few min ten rinced and wased very tourougly wit dr bronners (citrus, all i ad i wis it was teatree)
washing made it itc really bad wic made me scrub my scalp like a madman

all nigt and next day dead bugs were falling oout all te time
id find 20-30 on the bed every 10 minutes
but felt not 1 single bite or itch tat wasnt from the rash or scalp condition
next day (today) i did a second treatment just to be sure, even shorter tough cause te burning was intence
te ras especialy (going to see a dermentologist asap)
afterwards washed with ead and soulders
i got gold bond cream for the rash tinking it would elp..but oh god no it burned so intencely i was pounding my fist in pain and rubbing it off with a towel

again ill stress..if u get lice..act fast act torougly, do not let em go or it can get extreemely bad

but alcahol will kill em fast and tourougly, vinagar will dissolve te eggs, and repeatting te treatment every 3 days for 9 days will break te birthh cyclke and rid u of bugs for good..without hhaving to cut dreads
deeeeeeauym!!! all i can say is im very happy u made through alive and with those locks still flowin!! whata nightmareeee.
God bless n keep on soarin
you could try dying them. A friend of mine got lice in his dreads, and they all died after dying the dreads, as there are LOADS of poison and shit in the chemicals they use...
Hi, I have been at war with the lice for almost two months. I am commited though, I have been putting rubbing alcohol on every night after shower wrapping locks in a bag, all night some nights, anywhere from thirty minutes to hours other times. then I slather my head with coconut oil, tea tree oil, eucalyptus oil, ( I have heard rosemary oil is good too), sometimes I use diluted listerine, and leave it on.Now atleast once a day I boil a pot of water and dip my dreads. then once a day I go through my head and pick out any eggs. I don't know where these things came from, but they are not taking my hair or getting on anyone elses's head. I was doing these procedures every other day or three days, and not delousing my head in some way every day, well they would be gone for a day and then full force, so for the next month this will be my routine until I boil my hair and nothing comes out. Good luck let me know how long it takes you!
get neem seed oil too
the alcohol vinager neem seed oil did the trick for me

wash everything treat your furniyure
use enough alcohol that the fumes are overwhelming so breath thru a tube or wrap it up but u should only need it on 1/2 an hour not overnight
between treatments teatree and neem seeed oil appliesd to the scalp

the goal is sufocation they gotta be breathing alcohil fumes with not much air
so it needs to be enough to nearly overwhelm u so thats why u need to wrap up or breath thru a tube so u get clean air while denying them any

thats not easy when u gotta treat a beard too..lol
so i just sucked in tiny tiny breathes and mostly tried not breathing fir 20 minutes..lol
Thanx, congrats on defeating the bugs!!
