Is there any natural remedy to get rid of lice from hair?

My daughter and I recently discovered we have lice. I have shampooed us both with Rid and have been combing out our wet hair with conditioner and a lice comb. Is there other natural remedies we can do to help the process of ridding ourselves of the lice. ?

Hi,

There are no natural remedies for head lice. You have to apply Permethrin lotion on the scalp, keep it for 1 hour and wash it off.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
