4. Baby oil
The viscosity of baby oil can be an effective way to kill head lice and rid your hair of them. It also moisturizes the scalp and conditions the hair. To use baby oil for a lice home remedy, apply a few drops to your scalp and hair. Comb your hair with a fine-tooth comb to help the suffocated lice fall out of your hair. To remove the baby oil, wash your hair with laundry detergent and the hottest water you can stand. This will help to rid your hair of any residue left behind by the oil. Lastly, wash your hair with regular shampoo.
