I’ve managed to get to almost 40 with no sign of the little buggers and I’ve worked in a school for all of 4 weeks and a live one just fell off my head!

What’s the best treatment?

Daily combing! Don't bother with the chemical stuff!

Do the Hedrin leave in overnight lotion. Make sure you do right over your temples, behind ears, and nape of neck. Then do it again 4 days later. If you can, get someone to go through all your hair in good daylight, and pull any remaining eggs off your hair strands. That's the only way to get rid completely.
They can't jump they can only walk so keep your hair short or tied back as touching heads is the only way they can get to you.
