I am a mother of three boys and when they were all in their younger years at primary school they would always seem to get head lice. They had short haircuts but they still managed to get head lice. I was sick of buying commercial products to combat the lice and they didn’t always work for us. I started using the conditioner and comb method which entails putting conditioner through their hair ( I used the cheapest brand I could find) and with a nit comb carefully comb the conditioner through the hair to expel the lice and eggs in the hair. This process was repeated every second day until I found no lice or eggs for two weeks. I forgot to mention that I also put some tea tree oil in the conditioner mixture. Seek professional advice when treating your children but this is what works for me.
