Research Proves Coconut Oil When Combined With Anise Is Effective At Killing Head Lice
Coconut oil proven to banish head lice
Medicated treatments are often used to help combat head lice; a lotion containing permethrin has been used to help eliminate head lice manifestations. However, permethrin is becoming much less effective due to the fact that lice are thought to becoming resistant to it, but research has shown that coconut oil can help banish head lice naturally.
According to an article in the PubMed journal, coconut oil, when used in conjunction with anise, can be more effective than permethrin at treating a head lice manifestation.
100 participants took part in the randomised trial. The participants had an active head lice infestation; researchers used a spray that combined coconut oil and anise to determine if it would kill the head lice.
The study concluded that while permethrin was effective, the natural spray containing coconut oil and anise was more effective, and helped to treat the lice in 82% of the cases. 41 out of 50 participants that used the coconut oil and anise spray were treated effectively.
Scientists have said that although permethrin worked in some cases, the natural treatment containing coconut oil and anise was a more effective solution to this common problem. It was also determined that applying lotions to the scalp that contained alcohol could cause irritation to the scalp in some participants; a natural spray solution would avoid this type of irritation.
