Sorry I know its been done to death but not sure what else to do.
I've bloody got them DD's seem to have gone but I will be doing us all again tonight!
Felt a bit itvhy for a few days so decided to use nit comb on my hair with conditioner and found a few live ones but ouldn't see any eggs (though to ber honest not sure what I'm looking for!)
Still felt itchy on Monday so used the Full MArks Solution and again combed through.
Still felkt itchy yesterday so did what my mum suggested and used vinegar.
Guess what, I'm still bloody itchy!! Now not sure if its in my imagination or if I still have any but short of shaving my hair off (something I'm not that keen on doing!) what do you suggest I do now? Obviously I'm not keen on using any more chemicals but this is driving me mad. I desperately need a hair cut but can't go to the hairdressers with nits.
We had the Nits From Hell a few years ago - I used almost every product on the market and it didn't work. Along the same lines of vinegar, someone suggested I use a well-known brand of soft drink (the one that starts with a c), and it did seem to do the trick! I wet my and DDs hair well, put on a shower cap and a towel and left it for a good 30 mins... Very sticky and drippy but coincidence or not, the blasted creatures left the building.
IVe never encountered headlice until my d age 4 went for school visits - only did 2 and he came back with them. This is what I did and it got rid of them within one week:
1. Shamppo hair and use tea tree conditioner to make smooth 2. get a nitty gritty comb - dont mess about with any others this is the bee knees and well worth the £10 3. section into 4 then comb through each section from scalp down the hair shaft - wash comb after each comb. 4. Treat whole family with Lyclear, or Headrin ... we slept in the stuff overnight 5. Wash hair in morning and comb through again. 6. I combed through each morning and night for 7 days and had nothing since
We do the comb through with conditioner now every other night. Inform the school also as matter of courtesy so they can inform other parents
