Parent Reviews and Comments

Not much good...I think unfortunately lice have become immune to ALL nit treatments currently around.  We have tried them all.  Latest effort was buying KP24's latest one at nearly $ down the drain.  Felt like taking back to the chemist for my money back but then remembered we live in the real world!!!  Let KP24 website know my feelings instead.  Fed up with this.


It has a strong smell but it works. I followed the instruction on the packaging. Removing head lices and eggs are a pain but end result was a 'happy dance' :)


At least this product worked, as along as you also changed all linen, sheets, pillowcases and towels daily.  Using conditioner and lice combing vigilantly got rid of the lice.  Strong but if used correctly works


I have 3 girls at home and have tried many lice products. I found KP 24 was useful sibling as it was used consists tly for a period of at least 14 days. It did help get rid of all the nits and eggs (so long as using a nit comb each time) but it didn't help keep nits away after we stopped using it. I found that after about 2 weeks of not using it, the kids would have nits again! This went on for over a year!! Grrr. 

It was an awful smell too. In the end I had to stop using this product as I felt as though it wasn't doing us any good, it was wasting money and the smell was aweful. 

I have used many lice treatments over the last 18yrs and this is the one I always come back to.  I don't really like the way it leaves the kids hair greasy but I find it to be the best out of a mediocre bunch.  I still think that conditioner and a fine tooth comb is the best, but when you have an infestation then kp 24 is the brand I always go for.
