lice-300.jpg Blog Guy, I want to travel abroad this summer, but one small problem is I have head lice. Will I have trouble?

Nah, you’ll just have to spin it the right way. Now listen. You’re not just some filthy foreigner carrying a head full of blood-sucking insects that are the stuff of grotesque urban legends.

Rather, your hair is ART. You are exploring the complex subject of guests and hosts. That should work. If you can, thrown in the word paradigm. Watch and learn:

Who would have thought that we could have been making money off an infestation of head lice. Had I known I might not have spent a couple hundred dollars trying to find something that would get rid of them.

Hey thats the ticket. The way to save the public school system. Everytime a child gets headlice, open the doors to an art project done by the kids to raise money. Public schools could make a killing

Who would win in a fight, a flea circus or a lice art festival? Take your time.

You can safely and effectively kill lice with salt water or a sauna – learn how to kill lice without killing yourself or the earth……

Pediculicide POISONS do not remove nits and are dangerous. Among the reactions to poison shampoo or lice “treatments” are seizures, mental retardation, many different allergies and respiratory problems, strange tingling, burning, itching, attention deficit disorders, brain tumors, leukemia, cancer and death.

I have used a sauna and/or salt water to safely and effectiely kill lice (but the nits remain).

I have also used ½ oz. of Safe Solutions, Inc. Lice R Gone® Enzyme Shampoo and/or their Enzyme Cleaner with Peppermint per shampoo-type application to safely remove both lice and nits.
