Yes listerine the original kind does kill head lice. You put it in a spray bottle and leave on for two hours you can add a spray off vinager during the last 30 minutes then was hair with a good shampoo. We use denorex then condition with a coconut conditioner and comb.

Do not do this!! I did this with myself and my children last weekend, and we all still smell like mouthwash! I am spending this weekend trying everything I can to get the smell out.
It worked on the lice, but the remaining smell is not worth it, in my opinion.

Olive oil in your hair, place a shower cap on. Leave over night or at least 8 hours.  That will do the trick.

It can work, but the best thing to do is to rub mayonase in your hair and leave it on for about 2 hours and then check your hair. If needed to, you can keep rubbing it with mayonase until the lice are gone.
