Vinegar Lice Treatment. Can you use vinegar to kill head lice ? Using vinegar to treat lice is an urban myth. Vinegar does not kill lice or lice eggs. The only way to get rid of lice is to use a good metal nit comb such as the OMG Lice Comb. The OMG Lice Comb removes all of the head lice as well as all of the lice eggs, or nits. The nits attach themselves to the hair shaft using a kind of lice superglue and are very difficult to remove.
Vinegar Lice Treatment. Why can’t I see the lice or the lice eggs? Nits have camouflage in the form of iridescence making the nits difficult to see. Most parents over age 40 can’t see lice and nits. Head lice have developed clever ways to evade detection by the human eye. Lice have had 170,000 years to figure out how to become difficult to see. The lice themselves are clear like jellyfish, so if you have head lice in your hair you can’t see the lice because you look right through them.

Vinegar Lice Treatment. Parents are willing to resort to many alternative lice treatments, including vinegar, once they discover that pesticides no longer kill lice. This has resulted in the recent press dust-up about Super Lice. Are super lice really something that parents need to be concerned about? The term “super lice” has been passed through the media twice in the past year. The first time was in august of 2015 when the original report came out about the study done by Kyong Yoon, Ph.D.from Southern Illinois University “What we found was that 104 out of the 109 lice populations we tested had high levels of gene mutations, which have been linked to resistance to pyrethroids.”
Yoon’s study showed that head lice have developed pesticide-resistant mutations on a genetic level in 25 out of 30 US states, including Massachusetts.
