    Head lice breath through openings in their body. They can hold their breath for 2 hours. after 2 hours they are forced to open up and breath in the mayo, suffocating themselves! No combing for nits is needed with this treatment. This does not kill the nits, but doing the treatment allows them just enough time to hatch and suffocate, it does not allow them time to breed and lay eggs again! It is also a fantastic conditioner for your scalp and hair! *Note- I buy the mayo by the gallon in the instatutional isle at walmart or at costco. It is alot cheaper this way!
