We seem to be constantly infested with head lice at the moment. We treated ourselves overnight with Hedrin lotion but I'm pretty sure I saw a live one this morning...

We have a nitty gritty comb and are trying to get into a routine of using it every hair wash but obviously the Hedrin is not working so I need recommendations for other similar products but not same active ingredient.

We use nyda. It is supposed to kill eggs as well. Worked on dd2 after nothing else had.

Vamousse is good.
