If you have fleas in your hair, you can use simple personal hygiene techniques to get rid of them. There are several ways to go about this. Depending on your hair type and the fleas that are in it, you may need to do it multiple times in order to effectively get rid of them.
The best way to start getting rid of fleas in your hair is to first remove the eggs from the hair. You can do this by using a fine toothed comb. A comb will also help you to catch the fleas that are flying away.
Once you have removed the eggs, you can then wash your hair and scalp. Using a good shampoo will help to kill fleas in your hair. However, you should use a gentle shampoo so that you don’t irritate the fleas.
Another way to get rid of fleas in your hair is by using baking soda. This is an effective treatment to kill fleas, but it is not a permanent solution. Make sure to rinse your hair well after applying the baking soda.
Apple cider vinegar is another great flea treatment that you can try. It is a natural substance that can change the acidity of your hair, and it can also help to change the environment. Apply it to your hair and then let it soak for a few minutes.
Lemon scented dish soap is a good option for flea treatment. The lemon extract will kill the fleas by killing their larvae. Using a diluted form of tea tree oil can be an effective flea treatment. Tea tree oil helps to decrease the itching of a flea bite and it is also very effective at controlling the growth of fleas.
You can also make a spray to treat your hair. A citrus spray can be made by boiling thin slices of lemon in water. After pouring the liquid into a spray bottle, you can apply it to your hair. Keep in mind that you shouldn’t mix this recipe with dishwasher detergent, as it can irritate the hair.
Another flea treatment is to wash your hair with a baking soda and water paste. You can also leave it on your hair for a couple of hours. Be sure to rinse it off with warm water.
If you still have fleas in your hair, you should comb them out and cut your hair short. Alternatively, you can take a shower, but make sure that you use soap and water to get rid of the fleas. Adding some tea tree oil to your shampoo will also help to control your flea infestation.
Fleas are tiny parasites that can get into your hair and cause itching. They can also infect you with diseases and allergies. They can be hard to get rid of, but you can treat your home to help eliminate them. Remember, if you don’t get rid of them, they can infect you and your pets.
