my boyfriend and i wound up getting a small case of lice. (prolly the first round of eggs with one or two laying adults per head) and i personally got really freaked out. my reasons to cut them where sorta personal along the lines of i dont wanna have a lice grave yard stuck in my lushis locks. or have eggs burrow in the core of the dread by the root of the hair. overall it just freaked me out and i wasnt feeling to good.i had dreads for 5 months, only used wax once (lack of knowledge) they were starting to get nice and tight esp. at the root..bill (bf) and i decided to cut a small one off and then cut down the center to see how bad the damage was. we found alot of undistinguished things. alot of white small flakies and circles and alots o' lint by the roots. i found some nats as well. any ways my hair is now blue and about an inch long. either way i miss them and will continue use on this site. im pretty upset they are gone. maybe i have a touch of ocd about parasitic organisms meandering through my head colonizing at my follicles

I am very sorry to hear this!I was actually just helping in my dad's garden the other day and ended up with a bunch of lice bites on my feet from the previous owners dog and started wondering what I could/would do if I got lice in my hair.

So sorry Cassie! :(I'd like to know how to handle lice as well. I have never had lice before but I imagine it would be a real pain in the ass. How would a person treat the lice without ruining their dreads?

i did a lice shampoo. well its not really a shampoo you more or less just drench the dreads in a semen looking solution wait ten minutes and rise. i was afraid that i would still have dead eggs in the core of my dreads... just a personal thing though. you can also use natural remedies.
