I would seriously condition and comb. And comb. And get dh to comb! Get a nitty gritty comb. Pur loads of conditioner on your hair and leave overnight, then comb out dead lice in the morning. Tea tree is good.
i cant remember where i heard it, but definitely works. i did it when i was pregnant. cover your whole scalp, leave for 20 mins then comb out with a proper nit comb (preventative rather than just detection eg. nitty gritty comb). i did it on a hot summers day and the mayonaise melted and all the oil rolled down my neck, gross! be warned it is messy, but really did work!
YES! Discovered this about 10 years ago. Absolutely brilliant product (don't know WHY anyone bothers with the ghastly alternatives)! I can't personally vouch for the pregnancy safety side (but they overtly advertise that it is). I can certainly vouch for it's effectiveness. My daughter (now 16) has waist long corkscrew curls, so you can imagine what a nightmare that was, when the blighters hit! 'Not Nice to Lice' is easy to use, pleasant and best of all, can be used as a PREVENTATIVE if you suspect they're out and about! Lice can't become resistant because of the unique way this works. Just use as a normal shampoo over about a 3 week period, and problem's gone! The bottle may look like a pricier option, but lasts for ages (even now my kids are teenagers, so much less of an issue) I wouldn't be without a bottle in the bathroom cupboard. What beats me is why it isn't market leader!
