Lice Removal Instructions

without comments

This past summer, my son had lice for a second time in his life, not a good experience. Unfortunately we were traveling in Scandinavia and could not immediately turn to our Hisidic Lice Lady in Brooklyn, so we bought lice shampoo with a comb and got to work. After two weeks of combing through our hair each night as we traveled and a ton of laundry we returned home with bugs still in our hair. I immediately called the lice lady. She scolded me for having put poison in my son’s scalp and took all three of us into her home the following day. In under two hours, our heads were pronounced clean. I walked out with the lice lady’s formula and instructions which I’m likely to misplace or forget, so here it is:


  • Tresseme Conditioner
  • Baking Powder
  • Spray Bottle with Listerine & Vinegar
  • Paper Towels


  1. Wet hair with spray bottle this will paralyze the lice
  2. Take layer of hair starting from nape of neck and comb – North, East, West, South – each strand
  3. Sprinkle baking powder and keep combing

Hopefully it will not happen again and I won’t need these instructions as the essential part can not be included: PATIENCE.
