Coca-cola will basically just give you a sticky head and dry out your hair insanely. I understand the idea behind using an acid to degrade the exoskeleton, but sadly I’ve heard it doesn’t work.
The only sure-fire solution, is a bottle of cheap conditioner, and a fine toothed lice comb.
It will take up to a few hours, but once it’s done, it’s basically done.
Once it’s done, comb the hair daily with the lice comb to ensure no missed louse eggs hatch, and then you’re good to go.
It’s painful (for the parents) and annoying for everyone, but this too shall pass.
