    If you have a terry white chemist near you I would strongly recommend a lice breaker comb

    Went thru absolute hell last year with DD at 3yo kinder; and she has sensory issues so hated the lice treatment. I got rid of them with a lice breaker comb and a spray bottle of half conditioner; eucalyptus oil, lavender oil, peppermint oil and tea tree oil mixed with water.

    I would recommend having paper towels AND boiling hot water to dip the comb in between swipes.

    I used to spray her hair with the mix before she went to kinder too...and I finally got rid of them after 3 weeks of combing thru twice a week.

    My mum used to run a robi comb through my hair after school. It zapped them and killed them so there was no chance for them to lay eggs. I think there might be more brands on the market now but we never had to buy more lice treatments. Just be careful around the ears as occasionally she would zap me lol.

    The only time I can keep them out of dd's hair completely is during school holidays. All school days Im always combing out her hair and find at least one thanks to other kids at school whos parents dont take care of it

    Both my DD'S have had them more times than not this year. We've tried numerous different nit shampoo treatments which has irritated the scalp very badly. That Robi comb sounds like a good option, might need one of those. We got rid of them last school holidays only for both girls to gring home a head full of nits again on the first day back to school.

    The Robi comb is one of my worst childhood memories (and I grew up pretty rough lol!) I remember crying from being zapped a lot. Hopefully they have fixed that problem over the years but honestly since finding that spay I'll never use anything else. The kids were happy to get their hair done for the first time!
