DSD had nits so as a precaution I optioned myself up. Washed hair 4 times in last 2 days and still look as though i have been swimming in baby oil!! How do I get this stuff out?!!

Try putting shampoo on dry hair and then washing it out. That's what Hedrin recommends, I think.

It's hedrin isn't it! I found I had to just wash my hair a hundred times before the bloody stuff went. A dry shampoo and/or talc in your hair (random I know) might do the job.

instead of using the lotion, buy a 'nitty gritty' comb from Boots for £9.99, it gets rid of nits/lice/eggs. It's briiliant and really works, much better then a regular cheap nit comb. I know that doesn't help you now....but for furture? You just put lots of conditioner on hair and comb through each section at a time...
