We’ve all been there, searching frantically for a way to get rid of head lice. You turn to the internet and find a list of home remedies that someone swears will work. You dig through your cupboards and find the box of hair dye you bought once upon a time. What could it hurt to try? A new hair style and getting rid of the pesky critters doesn’t seem too bad, right? But will the hair dye kill all of the head lice?
Head Lice & Hair Dye
Hair dye is made of some potent chemicals. The ammonia and hydrogen peroxide in hair dye can be very toxic to lice in some cases. You would think it’d be the perfect mix to kill the nasty pests infesting your hair. Unfortunately, hair dye might kill the grown lice, but it won’t kill the nits. Nits are lice eggs often found attached to the base of the hair. Due to the protective nature of the egg, the dye won’t kill the nits. This means in three weeks the nits will hatch and start the lice life cycle and infestation all over. You would need to continue this process over and over again to keep the lice away. Hoping to eventually catch them at just the right time before any nits are laid. This could take several attempts and mean damaging your hair or living with lice for an extended amount of time.
