These natural ways can be used by pregnant women to treat head lice but with some care.
1. Tea tree oil in its pure form can get rid of lice without causing any harm to your fetus. You will need to mix a few drops of the oil in baby shampoo and apply it on your scalp while bathing. Depending on the extent of the infestation, massage it into the scalp. Let it stay for around half an hour, after which you can rinse your hair thoroughly. You can repeat this method as many times as needed.
2. Nitpicking is another great way to help you get rid of lice. First, divide the scalp into eight manageable areas, and then comb each one thoroughly with a lice comb to get rid of as many lice as possible. Then, you can use your fingers for a more thorough search. Repeat this after a week to get rid of the lice from the hatched eggs.
3. Lavender oil, neem oil, eucalyptus oil, and clove oil are also great to combat lice infestation.
4. Wet combing can also help get rid of lice. After a thorough head wash, comb your hair (you may use a conditioner to smoothen the hair). Then, use a lice comb to remove as many head lice as possible. You can also part your hear in several sections and use your fingers to search through clean the infestation.
When to Consult a Doctor?
If you have tried natural remedies and nothing has worked, you might have to consult the doctor to get rid of the lice infestation. Do mention that you are pregnant so that you get only the medication that is safe for you and the child growing inside your belly.
