Ok...I have a filename...the lovely Dcs seem to have picked up headlice on hols...and am sitting here a little itchy.
I washed my hair a couple of days and have walked around with a frizzy mop cos I don't use products before I dye as per recommendations. I also leave at least 24hrs after shampooing.
Now my plan was to dye tonight to let it settle before seeing a potential love interest next week. But I really ought to Nitty gritty myself....but then I was wondering with all the harsher chemicals in hair dye might prove fatal to the critters anyway?
So do I dye tonight and hope the critters are poisoned by the hair dye Or Nitty gritty myself and go mother couple of days before dying and hope I don't bodge it before I am in the same room as the main I have my eye on
I would treat now and dye in a couple of days, this is what my SIL a primary school teacher was told by a hairdresser, also she was told to use a plant spray with a warm water and tea tree mix once a week on the DC and herself, we also do this also and both houses have been nit free for 2 years HTH
Yes it does. I'm a hairdresser, and I was once colouring an older lady's hair, and I thought she must have been gardening as I noticed little bits in her hair. Halfway through I realised though, so had to continue. Killed all the blighters nicely!
Well I was a.good girl. I Nitty grittied. Found one louse which I don't think was fully mature based on size. No eggs. So I think I should be clear but will check at the weekend. Have stopped itching. May try and dye tomorrow night which will be bordering on 24hrs after washing.
