    Thanks everyone for your support ❤️ I forgot to mention tho, I am anti-chemicals!! I have the lice blaster comb. I will try the tea tree spray. I need something super fast in my busy day to keep them at bay, even if it's not guaranteed to kill them all, as I fear even the best nit comb won't do...

    The lice breaker comb and the cheapest possible conditioner & some water in a spray bottle is the way I do it, boiling hot water after every swipe, a wiggle in the boiling hot water jug and a wipe on paper towel before next comb.

    Dog flea products! My parents were vets and used to shampoo us in flea shampoo, I've heard from friends these days the top spots are awesome, few drops of frontline or advantage on the head every few weeks and your protected and nits sorted! Will be doing with my ds if he gets them, not in childcare so haven't had the issue myself....

    I doubt they are tbh! I have heard people at school talk about using kero or frontline for nits. I couldn't believe my ears

    Please don't use systemic animal insecticides on your child! They are not designed for human application, potentially toxic and unsafe 😁

    please do not use animal flea treatments on your child !!!


    as far as what to do - I have tried a lot of products.

    KP24 is good and is my preferred treatment as it doesnt smell too bad and is easy enough. I do a treatment with that, and then use conditioner and comb every 2nd day for about 2 weeks.

    Essentially it doesnt get all the eggs (I have not found a treatment that does) - but the combing gets the baby nits outs before they can lay eggs.


    my daughters hair is a mid-brown so the eggs/nits are incredibly hard to see. Conditioner doesnt kill the nits or release the eggs ... just makes it so that the nits cant run away from the comb. They stick to it so that when you comb, they come out.

    Sorry to be a bit blunt, but... If you are anti chemical, then you will HAVE to just find the time to comb your child's hair properly with the nit comb. No excuses.

    Removing every nit and every egg.

    I'm sure you can't be serious.

    This is dangerous. It's an insecticide for animals. Don't do it!
