How To Get Rid Of Head Lice Permanently

How to get rid of lice permanently


How to get rid of head lice permanently is a dilemma I encountered when my daughter and I got head lice.

When my kid first came home from school with a letter stating she had lice, I was shocked and horrified. And then, I caught lice from my kid. No one in my family had ever had lice and we’re Black. My first thought was how did this happen – Black people don’t get lice. It’s both true and untrue. We’ll come back to this point later.

What is Lice

Head lice (pediculus humanus capitis) is a wingless parasite that lives on the human scalp, feeding off of human blood. They can not live more than a day without being attached to the host. They crawl and spread from one person to another through the sharing of hats, towels, combs and through head to head contact. The female louse lays 3-5 eggs a day called nits.

Lice Treatments

The most common treatment used in the riddance of head lice are over the counter concoctions. They contain harsh ingredients and head lice have become immune to what is on the market. There is a strong prescription available, but it also contains harsh ingredients. None of these can be used on very young children nor get rid of life permanently

What did not work

After two rounds of using over the counter box concoction and long bouts of nitpicking. we still had lice. It didn’t work. We then tried all the natural “cures” that folks were telling us about – olive oil, coconut oil, tea tree oil — none worked.

What did work

After thinking hard about the ½ myth that Black people didn’t get lice, I realized why. Black people use to always used heavy hair grease. With the rise of the “natural hair movement the use of hair grease had gone out of style. I had stopped using hair grease also opting for more “natural.”

I rushed to the nearest Walmart and bought a large jar of Grease. The tried and true of Black Haircare of a bygone era (now making a comeback). I believed that I discovered how to get rid of head lice permanently.

How I did it

Blue Magic Hair Grease had always been a staple of black hair care in the past. I parted the hair in four quarters and then took each quarter starting in the back and greased both the scalp and length of hair with a generous amount of grease. I put each quarter in braids.

At the 1 week mark, I rebraided with more grease. At the 2 week mark, I would wash the hair thoroughly and repeat the process. For another two weeks. All seemed great after that, but I did it again the next month and all was clear.

It has been 9 years and we haven’t had an issue with lice since then even with lice breakouts in school as I knew to keep a bit a grease in my daughter’s hair as she went to school.

How to survive a nuclear attack

How To Survive A Nuclear Attack

How to survive a nuclear attackThe Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Outlines How To Survive A Nuclear Attack

How to survive a nuclear attack is at the top of the concerns of Americans amid the increasing war of words between North Korea and the United States.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) will conduct a briefing January 16th “Public Health Response to a Nuclear Detonation,” to detail how to prepare for nuclear war.

“While a nuclear detonation is unlikely, it would have devastating results and there would be limited time to take critical protection steps,” states the excerpt from the CDC’s website.

The CDC also states that all the information is crucial to increase survival, “For instance, most people don’t realize that sheltering in place for at least 24 hours is crucial to saving lives and reducing exposure to radiation.”

War Of Words

As we know, the war of words of nuclear prowess between North Korean  Kim Jong-un and  President Donald Trump has escalated.

President Trump tweeted Tuesday night, boasting his “nuclear button” is  “much bigger & more powerful” than North Korea’s.


World leaders have expressed their worry in recent days as the U.S.  edges closer to nuclear war with North Korea.

Besides knowledge of  how to survive a nuclear attack, having the correct gear and supplies is crucial. Survival experts recommend having a bugout bag and at least 2 -3 weeks of food and water to last for each person.

Nigerian Prince Scam Busted

nigerian prince scam busted



Nigerian Prince Scam Busted in Louisiana.  The internet has made it possible for love (which lends itself to its own scams) to be found anywhere around the globe. It has opened the chances of one finding the love of one’s life, the job of one’s dreams, and untold other social and financial advantages. Well, some have taken it a bit further to exploit the desperation and greed of people.

Michael Neu, a “Nigerian prince” scammer is accused of pretending to be African royalty as part of a scam to trick people out of thousands of dollars. The Slidell Police Department in Louisiana says they have arrested and charged the scammer with 269 counts of wire fraud and money laundering by sending emails to people and then claiming to be a Nigerian Prince.  The email sent claimed that the recipients were the beneficiary of a large sum of money — but in order to receive their “inheritance”, they must first send him their bank account details. Police say people fall for these scams.

“Most people laugh at the thought of falling for such a fraud, but law enforcement officials report annual losses of millions of dollars to these schemes,” Slidell police said in a news release.

The End Of The Children’s Health Insurance Program

End of Children’s Health Insurance Program

Because the Children’s Health Insurance Progam has not reauthorized, Many children will be losing their health insurance coverage.
Many states are notifying clients that they will no longer have access to the Children’s Health Insurance Program, known as CHIP.

The Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) – formerly known as the State Children’s Health Insurance Program (SCHIP) – is a program administered by the United States Department of Health and Human Services that provides matching funds to states for health insurance to families with children.

CHIP provides low-cost health coverage to children in families that earn too much money to qualify for Medicaid. In some states, CHIP covers pregnant women. Each state offers CHIP coverage.

States’ Dilemma

According to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, a majority of states will “exhaust all available federal CHIP funding” by March 2018.

Several states indicated plans to transition children from separate CHIP programs to Medicaid such as Idaho and Oregan. Some states such as Hawaii, Utah, and Alaska plan to use the supplemental funding to cover the program. They face the challenge of plugging up the funding hole left by no federal funding.
