Well they will hatch so yes she will need treating. Best thing to do is get a njit comb and comb them out with conditioner, do it every day for about a week.

once they're clear, ASDA do a cheap tea tree shamppoo and matching conditioner. Works for my three as a preventative (smells uper fab!), won't clear them though.

You have to ask the chemist, they have certain ones to give out on (i think) a rota so that they can try and keep them effective. Mousse, IMHO, worse than useless but that only me. Best thing is the combing / conditioner/ paper method. So I'm told, favour chemicals meself.

Nits! They will harch (most of them) and breed. Condition and nit comb rule, most chemicals are ineffective and you have to comb anyway to see if they have worked. Every 3 days for 2 weeks. Put a video on and bribe them. Do the whole family. It doesn't have to be tea tree conditioner, and cheap stuff will do. Wash hair and rinse. Slather the stuff on and comb out in inch area segments. make sure you cover the whole head

She's right, do it that way, I only try the other coz ds has terribly curly hair which is hard to comb and I gave up on that one.
