Coconut Oil Lice Prevention

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    Is there anyway to prevent one self from getting lice?
    I heard coconut oil, coconut shampoo or something derived from coconut can help w/ lice; but, what about prevention?

    • ANSWER:
      According to a lice treatment instructions,lice love clean hair and hate slightly to moderately dirty hair.
      Wash your hair at least twice week.
      Don't know about using oils and hair spray to prevent them,some lice bore into the scalp to hide and come out only at night.
      You could use a lice shampoo once in a while as a precaution.
      You might check WebMD.

  2. QUESTION:
    What is best: henna or coconut oil for natural hair conditioner?
    if you know the benefits of each thatd be great!
    and what type of hair each are used for

    thankyou!

    • ANSWER:
      That might depend on what you want to use it for.
      Henna is good for dandruff removal and prevention for a while afterwards. It has to be pure unadulerated henna though....be careful what you buy if you are going to buy henna....look for 100% pure henna only. Read the label before you buy. It is only really suitable for dark brown to black hair. It will gve dark brown hair a reddish glow and shine, particularly in sunlight. You can however add a little coffee powder to the henna powder before making a paste if you want to dampen down the red.It will condition the hair and scalp. It is perhaps too messy for regular use. You should always carry out a spot test first....to be sure you won't get an allergic reaction as it might not suit the scalp of everyone. It will take some washing off.....a few washes. It is difficult to apply....you really need someone to do that for you.

      Coconut oil is good for dandruff prevention if used regularly and you could use it once a week for that.....make sure you apply it to your scalp as well as hair. But you will have to wash it off with at least two washes. It also leaves your hair soft and quite conditioned.....though you can still use your regular conditioner afterwards. Coconut oil can also be used for lice removal. It can be used on any hair type and colour.

      Hope that is of some help.

  3. QUESTION:
    Why do I get a painful rash on my legs when I go for an extra long walk?
    I haven't walked my dog for a while now because whenever I do, I come home with a rash on my legs that itches like no other and is hot to the touch compared to other parts of my body. (My dog is getting walked by my parents for now, so he is getting his exercise.)

    What do you think it is?

    • ANSWER:
      Hi,

      Sounds like your malady may be a bacteria_fungus i.e. ringworm and/or yeast infection AND/OR an allergic reaction to something that is toxic to your liver/kidneys but it's hard to tell without seeing and learning the details about what you have been eating breathing and applying to your skin. SEE https://health.google.com/health/ref/Ringworm Monistat 7 will likely kill any fungus in a few days and better micro-nutrition will keep it killed and will also strengthen your liver lymph and kidney systems to handle allergic reactions with less suffering in the future.

      IF you think it may be an allergic reaction - although it may be a difficult process - try to identify your triggers from cosmetics meds nuts milk grains other-foods chlorine-water-in-showers etcetera by discontinuing them until the symptoms stop and then beginning them again to see how your body reacts. If you are like me you may start to see allergies to many things because the root problem for me was a severely weakened liver from too many nutritional supplements that were toxic and I never knew it until it was almost too late.

      After several months of pruritus Urticaria that began during the colder months of November inside a gas heated low humidity home, I have identified enough of my own triggers to allow my legs to heal with only a super-minimal amount of coconut cream and water rubbed on my skin and a minimal number of full body showers.

      After several applications my lymph glands have become severely allergic to petrolatum products that are similar to Vaseline Petroleum Jelly, and common sense has now taught me that any petroleum products should always become toxic to anyone’s kidney and liver with repeated applications. I had flare-ups immediately after I had applied organic olive oil so I eventually changed to minimal amounts of coconut oil after I had used a minimal amount of a petrolatum steroid for a few days to allow my legs to heal up. I also have flareups when I eat over 150 calories of nuts and/or milk fats and/or oils, but these usually flare up about three hours after eating them, but the olive oil always took about five to thirty minutes to begin itching.

      Skin diseases can always return again and again and again and can get much much worse over time if they are not resolved. Soo after reading your description I would strongly encourage you to seek out a 'good' doctor or a ‘good’ nurse and s/he will make a knowledgeable medical diagnosis and thoroughly explain the causes preventions and solutions much better than anyone on Yahoo_Answers could do without being able to see you personally.

      Also, to know how difficult or easy it should be for a doctor to make a ‘good’ diagnosis - I encourage you to also become a ‘good’ medical diagnostician from your doctor’s advice and your own research through Yahoo_Answers and via browser searches.

      PS - IF you are interested, I feel I have become a quasi-expert on rashes and pruritus itching after many years of off and on flare ups due to my own nutritionally related asthma and gallbladder disease that ‘continued’ to become heart disease and T2 diabetes and then non-alcoholic fatty liver disease with either PBC or PSC. So you are not alone. Many many people suffer from pruritus and I have learned very late in my own disease(s) that when it is nutritionally related most doctors do not tell their patients that inadequate micro-nutrition absorption in the gut and liver ‘might’ be the root cause and the best solution, and is also the most likely cause to the pruritus and liver diseases that are currently overwhelming our American culture. So to do my part to make a difference in the world I now take a little time each week to help others understand why better micro-nutrition absorption in the gut is so important, and I have posted much of my own story via the link at: http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20091025223942AAni6lC . I hope you will have learned something today from my own mistakes and would not duplicate them – please pass on what you will learn from your own malady to your family friends neighbors and acquaintances.

  4. QUESTION:
    Are there shampoos that repel head lice?
    Somebody told me if I wash my daughters hair in Suave's coconut shampoo, she won't get head lice. She said they don't like the coconut smell. Is this true? Thought it wouldn't hurt to try it out anyway, even though I don't like coconuts or the smell.

    • ANSWER:
      I am not sure about the coconut shampoo but here are 4 different head lice prevention methods using Tea Tree Oil:

      1. Mix 10 drops of Tea Tree oil in with her shampoo. This will make her totally invisible to the lice as they no longer regard her as human. As transferring to anything other than a human spells certain death, they are not even willing to take the chance.

      2. Put her hair up in a tight plait. Lice find it harder to get hold of hair that is well up and out of the way. Mist her hair with water in spray bottle and 10 drops of Tea Tree added. This will help to further repel them.

      3. It is possible to repel them by simulating dirty hair as this makes it hard for the lice to move around or attach their eggs. Gel is one way to simulate a dirty environment without the hair actually being dirty. Mix in a few drops of Tea Tree oil. This will be a double whammy as the lice will not think she is human as well as it being impossible for them to move around or attach their eggs.

      4..You can also get "leave in" conditioner which will do the same trick again. Add 10 drops of Tea Tree Oil and spray this over a tight plait every day.

      Feel free to check out the articles at the following sites for more advice.

      Good luck.
