I used to get them badly in highschool of all places, I could be infested for 6 months at a time and the only thing that worked for me was dousing my hair in vinegar, leaving it over night under a shower cap, then washing out and daily hair combing in the shower until they went away.
AHHHHHH lice. PIA they are.
DD had them constantly for about 6 months. Ive used pretty much everything on the market hahah. Started with MOOV...didn't work, them used two bottle of KP 24...didn't work. The last one I tried was neutralice...finally worked. It was the best one. worked in one go, easy to comb as its a conditioner type one.
Since then I spray teatree/water mix every day onto her haor to keep them away. So far, no more lice
As per instructions, I don't get a drop of frontline/advantage/etc on when applying. I also won't let the kids pat our dog after treatment (until after dog's next bath)and when pregnant would make DH apply it.
A quick google shows info like this. I couldn't link the WA one on my phone as its a PDF but it states that it is actually against the law to use these products on humans.
Please, random strangers on internet, don't put this stuff on your kids!
And here >> http://www.public.health.wa.gov.au/c...il%20FINAL.pdfWithout realising the risks, parents are self-medicating their children with dangerous insecticides. The active ingredient of concern found in animal flea treatment products is called Fipronil.
“Fipronil is a phenylpyrazole insecticide and acts to block the normal functioning of the central nervous system in insects and also mammals.” (WA Department of Health, 2008)
According to the Beyond Pesticides website, symptoms of exposure/poisoning from Fipronil can include headaches, nausea, dizziness, weakness, irritations, lethargy and convulsions. In short-term studies adverse side effects occurred in the central nervous system in all test species.

WTF. Why would you even take the risk putting frontline on your kids?
There are products meant for humans that kill lice well and if you repeat after a week the babies are also dead and life cycle ended.
Absolutely no need to use a product meant for animals
