The basis of almost all natural head lice remedies is an attempt to suffocate the head lice where they are, so they can be easily removed and disposed of, thus preventing any further infestation. Olive oil is another useful remedy in this endless battle, as the thick viscosity of the oil can kill the head lice by denying them any oxygen. Most people suggest applying the oil to the hair, donning a shower cap, and wearing it overnight. In the morning, you can take a shower and scrub your hair vigorously, followed by removing any remaining head lice with a fine comb.
