Does bleach kill lice?

Answer

Bleaching your hair will kill adult and baby lice. The chemicals in the bleach attack the neurological system of the bugs. It will not kill the eggs since they have not developed a neurological system. The eggs hatch out every 7/10 days.You would have to repeat the bleaching process to kill the baby lice that have hatched out. Bleaching your hair often over a short period of time can cause damage to your hair and scalp.
