A lock of curly, black and long hair is a symbol of health and beauty. It is every woman’s ordent desire to have such hair which could be the envy of others. But, hair care is a constant process and one cannot afford to be slack. Any clackness in cleanliness breeds lice. A louse is a wingless parasitic insect with 6 claw-like feet. It is grey in colour but it turns brownish after suckign blood, which it does with 2 small trunk like whiskers. A louse egg hatches in 9 days and within a fortnight the young ones attain maturity.

An anti lice oil can also be made with coconut of mustard oil mixed with 0.2 per cent lindane or 0.1 per cent prethrum essence. This oil can be rubbed well into the scalp to kill lice.
The above mentioned concoctions should be used at night. Tie a cloth around your head after applying any one of the medicines. let it remain at least for 24 hours. While washing off, do not use soap or shampoo. Repeat this for a week. Lice and their eggs will both be eliminated.
