Unable to find Delacet but I see this stuff:

http://www.walgreens.com/store/c/wild-child-quit-nits-complete-head-lice-kit/ID=prod6055340-product

Anyone have any thoughts if it is safe to use on dreads?

THANKS For all the replies and support!

Okay, I still have no idea if I have them or not. I guess if the rubbing alcohol/vinegar doesn't hurt, I might as well do it to myself.

Soaring Eagle, just to be clear, this is correct:

Put 70% rubbing alcohol on dry dread, wrap in plastic bag for 30 mins....rinse well, put regular white vinegar on for 10 mins.....rinse well. Should I then wash in dr bronners tea tree?

Do this every 3 days for 9 days

I'm going to start this today as soon as I hear back from you SE, thanks again!

they dongt fly they dont jump they have to climb hair to hair but can latch on quickly

teatreree they hate so use the teatree add extra teatree to the scalp oftento prevent them..if you have them pour 70% rubbing alcahol over the dreads in a bun wrap then in plastic for 30 minor longer the fumes kill em dread but u got to repeat it every 3 days to break the 5 day egg cycle u need to do it at least 3 times in 9 days soak in undiluted vinegar 10 min after the alcahols washed out that dissoklves the glue thsat holds the eggs on

fir the kid instead of rid try vasaline or mayonese cake it on wait 30 minutes then rinse off and do the vineger and combv out repeat every 3 days too wash everything u own spray the furniu8iture clean everythuing anything u cant wash seal in plasrtic bags 2 weeks if they cant eat they die

when you do the alcahol the fumes can get to yoiu too so breathe through a paper towel tube

it will sting bad u will curcse and scream and bang your fist (at least i did) but the sting steralizes and scratches so its good

tearttree oil prevents bugs use it always in yoyr and her shampoo

nem seed oil can be added to the shamopoo too it kills ..everything..even leprocy..any parasites and y bacteria ..it hardens at room temps so heat it up (put the bottle in hot water till its liquid) add a capfull to the sghampoo it ..smells lil bitter an earthy smell some ppl hate but it will kill em along with the alcahol u will see em raining everywhere and find dead ones on your pillow

always use teatree add lemmongrass and eucolyptus to really be sure

Ouch that sounds rough, sorry to hear about it ......okay I feel better using it, still a bit scared it will dry the crap out of my hair. Still don't know if I have them or not. Maybe I should just do the alcohol every 3 days just to make sure.

Could you please tell me what to spray for the house? Is it something you buy or make?

Thanks again, I sure am glad there is this website and you here

First thanks for the quick reply, you are the BEST

"they" being the lice or the eggs? Can they hold their breathe in regular water? Like what if I just dunk my head in the bath tub for 1/2 an hour? I'm scared of the Alcohol

What kind of spray to use on the house?

Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

Please post if you have any experience with this.

My 6 year old has been scratching her head the last few days, I kept looking in her not dreaded hair and not seeing anything. I've never had nor seen lice so wasn't sure what I was looking for. Then today as I'm looking in her hair, I seen some little white things but wasn't sure until I seen a freaking brown bug. Went to walgreens, got the rid stuff, used and attempted to get out the eggs. I only seen 2 bugs so I'm hoping its not too bad. Please let this stuff work.

From what I understand, its easy to kill the bugs but the eggs have to be combed out or they will hatch and be the lice bug which will lay more eggs.....NASTY!

So now I'm freaking out cause I'm scared that I have them in my 7 month dreaded hair which is still a mess by the way. Heck, if she can get them from school, It would be impossible for me not to have them right? I mean we lay in bed and snuggle, etc.......MAN this sucks.....hate to say it but its makin me squeemish to hug my own kid. And of course I'm scratching my head probably more than normal cause I got the heebeejeebies.

I use the dr bronner tea tree for what i've had this 7 months I assume is dandruff....don't really know as I never had dandruff before. I wash my hair every 2-3 days. So I can't really see if there were eggs in my hair....very hard to see scalp especially in the back. If I wait to see actual bugs flying around, it will be INFESTED. Shit do they fly, I don't know.

Help!

BS/ACV combining? residue in oils?


Dread Maintenance

So, found dr. bronners at target on the bottom shelf.......bought the tea tree (orange bottle) and tried it yesterday. I know it is super concentrated but figured I could just use it sparingly and not have to premix 12-1. I'm used to using either the the bs wash or dreadhead shampoo. Well in the shower, I would use 3-4 drops, rub my hands really well and then apply to my hair. I did that about 3-4 times.........couldn't really tell if I got my whole head, didn't really lather up.

Don't care for the smell, it is a cross between motor oil and furniture polish. So not really sure yet how I feel about it....will try again.
