5. Tea Tree Oil
Tea tree oil is a natural insecticide that works well with lice infestations. But what is unique about this treatment that is not the same with some of the other ones described above is that it targets not only the adult head lice but also the baby lice and the eggs.
You may have heard of tea tree oil before now because it is one of the most effective treatments for nail fungus and athlete’s foot. The antifungal properties are more well-known in the insecticide properties, but this is still one of the best treatments that you could use to kill head lice.
In order to get the best results, you should apply tea tree oil every night before bed for close to a week. You’ll rinse out the tea tree oil the next morning and you can continue using it intermittently to prevent further infestations.
