wow, I am impressed! I once found out that I had brought home a little passenger from school when it fell off my head and landed next to my breakfast. (thank god not in it but i suppose that would have been the ultimate revenge... )
Assuming you have no one competent and willing to help you inspect yourself and comb out... (my dh was utterly useless. He'd spend 2 seconds, then say "no you're fine!")
I recommend the electric combs, because you don't have to be able to see and identify the lice. It can be used to check for lice as well as to remove them. You hear a satisfying ZAP when the comb fries one. However, it doesn't get the eggs, so it's necessary to repeat the process once the next batch has hatched out.
Think they're gone - ain't found a critter for a couple of days now (but have hair very very very tightly tied up in a bun lol)! Combing my head into oblivion and contemplating going short-haired again now - well I was anyway...
