DS has got lice I conditioned and ran the comb through it earlier today and found 3 big ones and quite a few little ones. I was going to treat his hair tomorrow, but I could only find the KP24 medicated lotion. I can't find the 2nd step shampoo part for it. Do you think the lotion will be enough and follow that with a shampoo, condition and comb through again? I don't have enough money to get something more than that until Friday.
And now I'm scratching

Also blowdry on hot helps kill the eggs by drying them out.

Yeah, I was going to condition and comb through until I got something more heavy duty and change all his bedding. I need clean the brushes too. He hasn't had them in over a year which is why I'm not stocked up on stuff anymore. Might need to get some more conditioner but thankfully that's only $1 at Coles this week lol.

I just get cheap conditioner and manually remove all the lice and eggs. Works every time.

Cool. I'll get a couple of the cheap bottles and hope that does the trick. Thankfully he already has the day off school tomorrow so I can get on top of it a bit then.

Put vinegar in a spray bottle and use a lice comb to brush them out. It's the only thing that worked for DD. A few years ago I had a massive problem with lice. Got to the point that everyone in the family got them. I spent literally hundreds on shampoos and spent hours on the conditioner method. Vinegar got rid of them once and for all but you will need to do it every day or every second day a few times over. Make sure you have a large bowl of water next to you so when you brush them out you can put them in the water... Or pop them which is kinda fun. They become resistant to shampoos.

Bahaha I thought I was the only one who enjoyed popping them Might have to give the vinegar method a go too.
