Head lice are tiny insects that make their way onto your scalp and feed on your blood. Lice occur and spread when you are in close contact with others, according to the Mayo Clinic. They also spread by sharing personal belongings with many other people. There are medications and over-the-counter products that can help kill the lice, but these items can get very pricey. There are a couple of concoctions that you can create with lemon juice to help kill the lice within a week.
Mixing with Garlic
Crush a garlic clove into a paste and mix it with lemon juice.
Rub the concoction into your scalp and massage it before you go to sleep.
Wash your hair completely when you wake up in the morning, as you normally would in the shower. This will help get rid of the concoction and any dead lice bodies lying in your hair.
Continue this process for four to five days and the lice should be completely gone.
Mixing with Egg
Mix two egg yolks with 3 tbsp. of vinegar and 3 tbsp. of lemon juice. Stir the mixture thoroughly.
Massage the concoction onto the scalp and let it air dry for about 20 minutes.
Wash your head thoroughly with water to get rid of the mixture and remove any dead lice bodies from your head.
Continue this process for four to five days and the lice should be gone.
