Double Rainbow
Default Lice?   #1  
I don't think I have lice, just dandruff, but what if I'm wrong? I'm not insured, and I'm embarrassed to go get my head checked. I think it would be a great idea, just so the hair stylists can't get in trouble for spreading lice. The barbers I've gone to haven't mentioned anything, but I don't know. They don't inspect hair. They just cut it. I have noticed my head becomes itchier while at work, and while I'm elsewhere, my head isn't really all that itchy. Also, unless it's hot out, then my head is itchy. I might have lice, but there's only one way to find out... I don't know how much it'll cost without insurance, though.

EDIT: I just looked up where you can checked up for lice. I was unaware you could do it yourself.

yes, you can check for yourself, and you can pick up lice treatments for anywhere between $8 and $30, depending on the kind of treatment it is. tho, when grabbing over-the-counter treatments, you absolutely HAVE to follow the directions. most times they don't work, it's because someone thought they could split the dose or some other nonsense that goes against the directions.

Oh, I see. Interesting... hmm, well, I should go get the stuff. I do prefer a professional to do it, which would be more expensive, but me following instructions... things don't work out the way they are supposed to, so I feel incompetent when following instructions. One day, I spent 24 hours trying to build my younger brother's toy to a T, but it was... less than impressive. My mama and I decided to say "let's do this" and made a minor adjustment. Did it work? No, but oh well. It's gone now, and I never want to do it again. Helped build a thing with my mama, and it works and is still standing, so there's that.

It does work somewhat better if you can have someone else help you with it, but that's just because it's kinda hard to see the top of your own scalp. It doesn't require any special qualification, just good lighting and patience.

I have read there is a special comb to use, and once used, wipe it on a white... paper towel, and then, if the colour iss a certain colour, it's nits... which are eggs. That's all I know. Anywhere I should go specifically?

Specifically? Nah. Any pharmacy should carry the relevant stuff. Head lice is a common childhood ailment.

A friend told me about a dermatologist... but I'm not insured.

mm, i got it really bad in high school, dunno how long it had been but it got to the point that i couldn't wash my hair without noticing actual grown live bugs ending up on my fingers. even as bad as that was, a dermatologist wasn't necessary. just had a long afternoon doing a thorough job, and a secondary go a few weeks later.

i've had lice a couple of times and here everyone uses an oil called Mediker but it's a long process like oil, shampoo, then multiple comb-throughs... and usually multiple oils and multiple shampoos. but i once used something called NYDA lice treatment and that was just something you apply to your scalp/hair and leave on for a few hours. then you comb out once and shampoo and that's it. if you can find something similar it should work cos with the lice treatment thing the directions were simple and they worked for me

I never had lice... when ever mom heard about a lice outbreak she would rinse my hair out with apple cider vinegar every night.

It's a good preventative, and it also helps kill off the lice if they already started an infestation.

I still do vinegar rinses as an adult.. never hurts to be careful.

It doesn't actually kill the lice -- if they're chewing on your skin, it's too late for vinegar to be helpful and you'll need something stronger. And it doesn't prevent the eggs from getting there in the first place, because once your hair has dried it doesn't do anything anymore.

But it does WORK: The acetic acid in the vinegar dissolves the substance that makes the eggs stick to your hair, so they don't get a chance to hatch. So doing vinegar rinses after a risk of exposure will prevent the infestation. It's a good strategy when you have kids going to school, especially in poorer areas.

I might try that some time.

I should try that some time, but only when I have concluded tht wht I am using is not helpful.

That's awesome! Maybe I should try that.

I did a little experiment. I used the anti dandruf thing on my hair twice one week, and I noticed my hair was less itchy while at work, so I believe it is nt lice;however, I do wanna get my head checked out.
