Home remedies: Althogh home remedies have been tried by meny and are popular but it is not the best treatment option.Treating head clice with tea tree oil and olive oil are very popular.Some people claim mayonnaise help control the head lice.And washing hair with vinegar has been tried, use of coconut oil following vinegar has been suggested.Mixture of lemon and butter after application of vinegar has been used.
