    Brisbane has a head lice centre at Kelvin Grove if that helps. The guys there use all natural products. We went there last year for my DS because they were so bad at his school that even all the short haired boys were getting them.

    They were awesome and we've never had them back. Best money I've spent and they're open 7 days and late at night.

    DD has had them a few times and this method has got them first time:

    Spray bottle with water and a good dose of TT oil. Spray through being careful to get every area until wet. Put hair up in a towel and leave for an hour. Wash out. Get a cheap bottle of conditioner and a nit comb. Put loads in the hair and comb out section by section, repeat. Wash out. Blow dry and straighten with a straightening iron to at least 180 degrees.

    Repeat process another 2 days.

    I also check her hair about twice a day in those days, just while she's watching TV to look for nits and eggs.

    The last time DD got them so did I... and well DH didn't do a very thorough job of looking for eggs and they would hatch I put thru a hair dye and it killed the eggs I know it's extreme but depending on the age of the child I would find a shade identical to their natural and dye it. It does work

    When we moved here I didnt realize that lice was such a problem, I had never had them on my kids so we battled them and finally got tired of battling them with stuff that didnt work so I put frontline on them according to their weight and all is well a month lice free.

    Frontline is nasty stuff, I would be reluctant to use it on animals.

    LMF, i havent gone through lice for over a year. A quick spray of my lice preventative spray each day before school helps plus a check once a week is all i have done.

    Using PET products on children esp young children doesnt sit well with me. There are many other options out there you can use rather than animal treatments

    some TT oil mixed with water in a spray bottle is a great preventative

    With my TT oil and conditioner treatments we had the nits and their eggs beat in a few days. You just have to be persistent for a few days that's all.... no need for any other treatment.
