I pulled the fire alarm, and I'm still waiting outside with a camera, so if you could just come outside so we can get this over with... The fire department is sort of in a hurry, so if you could please put a rush on that, thanks!
Aren't there shampoos for that? Why would you use mayonnaise?
I don't know how to get rid of lice, but I would use Head & Shoulder shampoo. Or is that dandruff? Either way, mayonnaise in your hair and going outside for people to see you. FYL
There is a super expensive dandruff shampoo that helps with lice. I used it after I put the actual lice shampoo in and it helped get rid of all of them. Mayo works to a certain degree, it covers the lice in oil and suffocates them and makes them easier to comb out but the lice shampoo kills the actual live lice.
Use teatree oil! Also very useful when trying to quit biting your nails.
Actually it isn't "bull shit". Lice can't grip to dirty hair as well as they can grip to clean hair. It's a proven fact. The only reason you should be washing your hair more than twice a week is if you use a fuck load of product or have seriously oily hair. It's actually unhealthy for your hair as you're washing away the natural healthy oils.
ee13lbp - 1) lice can move around better in clean hair, the thicker the hair the harder to move (think swimming in water vs. swimming in caramel) 2) the person said it's unhealthy to wash your hair more than twice a week UNLESS you use a lot of product or your hair is extra oily. This is true, because our hair does have natural oils etc... that shampoo strips away, without them our hair can look like a ball of wool that's had a run through the wash cycle and was given to a cat to play with You really need to learn to recognize when you're wrong and read more closely, both of these (especially the second) will end up being Very useful in life for you, trust me, in two years you'll be fucked if you haven't learned this already.
Might I also mention that, as a guy, you probably have short hair (as a majority of guys do) and therefore have less experience with the finer points of haircare etc... The longer the hair the more work it takes (plus the whole social, media, gender role argument but I Really don't want to get into that nor start it on here)
Okay people. Lice are animals. Any animal likes clean living spaces, but WILL deal with dirty ones if they have to. So basically, clean hair gives you more of a risk BUT it doesn't mean you won't get them with nasty hair. Another thing, like someone up there mentioned, is that lice can't grip greasy hair as well but even that doesn't mean you won't get them.
