So we are all on schedule to be leaving for school/ work and I notice my 8 year old has head lice. ARGRHGHGHGH!!!
Im not worried by them or anything (im in early childhood so know how common they are) but Im wondering what treatment I can use on her that will be safe for me to apply- not to myself.
I dont think I have it at all so wont be using the stuff on myself but what product can i use to treat her that wont harm my baby?

Rinse her hair with fresh oranje juice (must be juice not fruit drink) and then comb through conditioner.

I have an electronic device but can't remember the name. You just comb it through and it stops making noise when it finds one. I'll find it and let you know. Just runs on AA batteries and it shocks them with a small charge. Nothing you can feel yourself and there is no need for chemicals at all. It is wonderful.

We just lather the hair in cheap conditioner and comb with a nit comb until you've got them all.

Lice blaster and apply olive oil to her overnight and rinse out with a few drops of washing up liquid in her shampoo. Works best.
If your strapped for time use mouthwash to wash her hair it will kill the live lice but not the eggs.

I use moove. The shampoo goes on for 15 mins and then you wash it out and out the conditioner in and comb through. It's all natural - no nasty chemicals! But it kills the live lice and eggs.
I dont believe that the normal conditioner method is effective at all!!!

Once you've treated, hot hair dryer or straightener helps kill any left over eggs or bugs.
