best treatment for anyone is just to wet comb with a nitty gritty comb. loads of conditioner on hair, then comb through. do it every few days til no eggs/lice seen for a week

the nitty gritty nit comb is really good - put in conditioner and then comb like crazy, repeatedly! Good luck, just doing this myself (again!)

Totally agree with others, don't waste your money on insecticides. Wet comb every 2 days for 2 weeks also use tweezers and catch the little blighters its very satisfying squashing them!!
