How do I use Diatomaeous Earth to treat head lice?

We have been battling head lice on my family and was wondering if the D earth I have purchased for the pets will work on our heads. If it works on Human head lice, how do I apply it for treatment? Would I add it to shampoo or conditioner or leave it in powder form and shake it on us?


Unfortunately none of the products that we sell, including the DE, are labeled to apply directly to humans.  We DO NOT recommend that you apply any insecticide to your body.  Please seek an approved product from a pharmacist, doctor, or over the counter that is labeled to apply directly to the body.
