    Ok I've come back to this thread as we are really struggling here.. I first found headlice in my children's hair around the 10th of June and I still can't get rid of them!! This is the first time we have had them. I washed all of our hair with the shampoos straight away and combed through with the not comb. Repeated in 7 days. 6 days later found a nit in my DDs hair so did all of our hair again. Then did it again in 6 days time. So I've done 3-4 major not washes and comb throughout since we first found them. Last one was Thursday night, look in my dds hair this arvo and find a nit soo tiny I had to use my phone light to find it I only just washed her hair 2 days ago! And so many times before that. I can't seem to get the eggs out with the nit comb and nits the size of the one I found today just go straight through the comb. I went and bought kp24 egg remover yesterday and they still don't come out, it's like I have to pick each one individually out which is hard enough on my sons short hair, let alone my dds long hair and how am I supposed to get them out of mine? Arrgh! I don't want to ask my DH to do mine lol. This is my stash of products so far, and it hasn't even been a month since we first found them ImageUploadedByThe Bub Hub1467455001.774144.jpg

    Still struggling here also ds1 has been clear for a week as well as DH and I, but a few eggs for dd1, ds2 and dd2. Driving me nuts! The little ones have hardly any hair and it seems we got them all, but dd has been combed (with conditioner) three nights in a row and still found a few eggs

    Out of curiosity, what does one pay. for such a service. I used to do it in the school holidays as part of babysitting and got paid $20/day lol. I would section the hair into 1 inch parts and pick every egg out then plait it. I would take about 3-4 hours.

    Please check these:
    Did u use a metal nit comb? ( I found that a plastic one doesn't pick up a tiny nits)(metal with grooved teeth is the best)
    Did u section a hair when u comb? Find from YouTube some professional person shown the tip for how to comb head lice.
    Did u put enough solution? Make sure that u put all over the scalp too. ( not just only hair)
    Don't forget to wash the regular comb, hairbrush under hot water over 60*c (hat, pillow case, bed sheet) to kill the live nits.
    As u know head lice resistance to many over the counter head lice treatment.
    Try neem oil spray, neem conditioner or neem shampoo. No combing required. But if u comb, it will give a better result. Easy to use. As it works great for my kids. The products in your photos( KP24, lotion ). ( They didn't work for me either)

    Thanks Lucida, I'll look for the neem range. I have a plastic and metal comb but the metal comb I bought is sooo hard to get through the hair. I couldn't even get it through DS's 1 inch long hair without him screaming and it doesn't slide through easily. On my hair it was ripping lots of hairs out and I couldn't even pull it through without holding the start of my hair as it was hurting so much. Does your metal comb go through the hair ok? Obviously it has closer together teeth, but it was beyond a joke how hard it was go get through!

    I've bought the KP 24 bedding soak stuff so I've just washed the sheets and towels with that today.

    I'll check out YouTube and see how people are doing it on there, I am sectioning the hair but without pulling each egg out individually I feel like I'm failing.

    Our local kids hair dresser is a nit-pro salon and I think I asked last time the kids got haircuts and it was about $45-$50 for the treatment. Which is ok for one child but for two kids and myself, $150 is a lot to spend on nits! Lol. Although every time I'm coming their hair I think about going there I'll see how things go over the next week and decide from there.

    Even from the time when I was a teenager with a case of nits, I've have never found that shampoo on the right in your picture to work. The best stuff I've found is called full marks, we use that on everyone every 5-6 days for three treatments.

    Yes the metal combs hurt a lot. I comb with the plastic comb first to get the knots out and then use the metal comb. It is painful but it worked. I sat with a magnify glass (that has a light) and individually removed each egg. It was painful, but I found that combing alone, even with a metal comb, would always miss some.
