What is the olive oil treatment for head lice?

I don't want to put harsh chemicals on my child.

Soak the hair with olive oil. Cover the head with a shower cap for at least 8 hours and then wash the hair thoroughly. You should comb hair in sections with a nit comb to remove all eggs. Repeat this treatment every 3-4 days for at least 2 weeks.

Olive oil works well for the treatment of head lice by suffocating the bugs. You must saturate the hair with olive oil. Leave on for a minimum of three hours, than wash off. You still have to comb through hair to remove all nits.

Apply liberal amounts of olive oil on hair. Cover the hair with plastic wrap and a shower cap. Leave it on the head overnight. Comb hair the next day several times to remove nits. You can use a special nit comb to remove nits. You will have to comb through the hair several times and then shampoo. Repeat as needed.
