I use Hedrin, it is not a pestcide it coats the nits and smothers them. I can't seem to comb out my own hair. Better comb out the rest of the family to check. Nitti Gritti is the best comb in my opinion, it has long teeth.

thank you. have been trying to comb and agree it's really difficult!

I've got mid length hair and caught them from my ds about three weeks ago. I couldn't see anything with the comb but I am convinced I had them as I was scratching like mad. I used Full Marks Solution and that got rid of the buggers.
