    I used to teach with this guy who had lived and taught for years in Papua New Guinea, and he once told me that the "standard" head lice treatment there was to wrap the hair in a towel, turban-style with a tiny opening in the top and spray an ENTIRE can of mortein into the hole!

    Wowzers! Why wouldn't they just use other chemical lice treatments. Frontline is highly toxic and super expensive!

    I know, crazy right? My girl has had nits twice and I just used good old teatree oil (which I use for a million different purposes, love my TT oil lol) and a cheap bottle of conditioner to get the eggs. It worked too

    I just don't understand Why... I mean... what for?? Perhaps next time I suspect DS has worms I should go to the vet and grab some dog woming treatment?

    Truly bizarre!

    Her reasoning is it lasts months and even though it's dear you only need a tiny bit.

    We have used the same mostly. A few years back we had a bad re-occuring infestation and used a chemical treatment. I remember it costing around $40 to treat the family and I was shocked at the cost.

    I couldn't imagine using any kind of chemical lice treatment regularly, let alone Frontline!

    OMG that's terrible!!
    I too remember in my past career as a hairdresser, clients using Kerosene and petrol to get rid of them... Mum always used to say when my sister got them that when she was a kid they used petrol
    I used to sell a great product that i will get once bub is school age only becuase i love the smell.... its by PPS and is a more natural one they have a leave in conditioning spray that's really good for detering them and stuns the lice for 20 minutes giving you heaps of time to get through the head to get the eggs etc out before using the gel.

    Without getting shot, dogs skin is actually a lot more sensitive than most other animals - including our own.
    There are a lot of people who recommend using dog flea shampoo as an effective shampoo treatment in removing head lice, including health nurses and pharmacists.

    While frontline is different to dog shampoo maybe we shouldn't all jump to conclusions without actually researching whether it is effective or not.
