HELP! Lice!

Postby Annikki on Tue Oct 25, 2016 7:08 am

I need to know what the BEST comb is and where to find it.

The current comb isn't catching all the nits and I am struggling to get them out of her very fine hair.

TIA

London Drugs had a metal nit comb on the counter at the pharmacy. It's fine toothed. I rinsed comb each time through the hair to be sure they left the head. Lice don't seem to die with standard treatment lately.

Use a cheap white conditioner and slather it all over your dd's hair, then put in sections and pull comb through, every time you do wipe on a white towel. That way you can see how many nits and louse you are getting. Not fun, have been there and don't envy you at all! Use a LiceMeister comb, it is the best!

Thanks.

A friend suggested Vaseline because it causes the nits to swell. Totally worked and it much easier to get them......but it a pain to get out of the hair...we have been using blue dawn.

Holy man hours! 4 checks through a day for about 2 hours spend nit picking...we seem to be clear but I am still checking twice daily.
