Bit the bullet - cheap conditioner and combing. Have just finished DD2 and she's sitting with a final conditioner & tea tree concoction glad wrapped to her head.
On to DD1 next, then over to Mums to have her comb me through and check. Please cross everything.
Not looking forward to rounds 2 and 3
It's been 3 years since we last dealt with them and I'm usually super vigilant with spraying tea tree and slicking the girls hair back into plaits and buns with gel. Got lazy with MS. Regret that now.
Good on you. It does work but you have to repeat the treatment.
I did DDs hair about every 2nd or 3rd day for a week then every 5-7 days for a couple more weeks, then repeated if I saw her start to scratch. Eventually they were all gone. You have to make sure you catch the lice when they are immature so they don't lay an more eggs.
