    Tea tree oil is the best to treat with. My sister had nits for 9m and in the end it was Tea Tree oil that got rid of them. Our school would send a note home asking that every parent treat on the same night.

    My DD1 has only had them once and was such a chore to treat.
    I used the kp24 then sat there with a lamp shining light on her head and a pair of tweezers along with the metal nit comb and went thru her hair a tiny section at a time.
    Her hair is blonde so the eggs were hard to see.

    I have since used hairspray on her each day and whilst some argue its not a deterrent we're up to 4yrs without another nit

    At one school I taught at,I had a boy who CONSTANTLY had lice. He would sit there scratching, I would send him to the office to check his hair, it would be FULL of hundreds of lice crawling all through his hair,we would ring his parents to collect him. The parents would crack the sh!ts because they didnt want us to call them, & they didnt want us to - find his lice? They wanted him to be at shool with the lice & didnt think it was fair that we had checked & would send him home. They would 'treat' it that afternoon & send him back the next day,only for the whole process to be repeated in a few more days time. It was soooo gross to see lice scurrying & crawling on his hair. They eventually shaved his head, thank god.

    We've had one breakout here- it was awful! I used the KP24 range- literally everything in that range i could get my hands on! The treatment, lice de-gluer lotion and then a shampoo. When it was dry i straightened my dds hair using my ghd, which burnt any remaining ones. I did this twice a week apart and that got rid of them (& she has thick long hair). Washed all bedding/towels in hot water after treating (although I've read this is a myth, that lice don't live long away from human heads).

    Another little trick is to fill a spray-bottle with 1/4 white vinegar, and 3/4 water. After using the medicated shampoo and conditioner and metal comb, spray the child's hair with this solution whilst wet, and re-comb with the metal comb.
