I think some people are more susceptible to them than others but I always use hairspray on my daughters hair and knock on wood, she has not had them. Her hair is also thick. There may just be a few select children that yours is in contact with frequently that keep getting them.

Braid your daughters hair and add tea tree oil to your shampoo. It deters lice

I've always been told to use hairspray and lots of it! The lice have a hard time hanging onto strands of hair that have hairspray. I have put mousse on the hair too then spray hairspray. I hope this helps-it can be so aggravating to deal with. No-one is beneath getting lice-happens to many kids. Oh, also check your child's hair overnight for eggs or bugs. May need to put his/her backpack in a plastic bag each night just to make sure they are not coming home from school, same thing for clothes and jackets. Good luck!

We looked online when my child brought it home and we couldn't get rid of it believe it or not our savior was olive oil, conditioner and alcohol so far we haven't had them in over 6 mths!!

Also tell your child not to share hats, head bands, brushes, clothing with others. Look for dark teardrop shaped nits close to the scalp, especially around the ears and nape of neck. Remove these ASAP. Section hair into small manageable sections and use bright light to look for nits.
There is a product called Lice Shield. I've seen it at CVS. It received mixed reviews online but some swear by it. Good luck!!!

go to walmarts and ask the pharmacy what it is that people put in their conditioner, many have said it works and no lice again. I can not remember what it was but my cousin said the pharmacist or worker at the shampoo area told her what to get and said everyone was buying it and putting it in their shampoo or conditioner. Good LUCK!

Tea tree oil in your shampoo or conditioner is suppose to help as like a block to keep from getting them.

I can't believe we have a coach that's letting kids play basketball, that weren't born and raised here in the county, and you people are on here talking about head lice.
You seriously need to get your priorities straight. I for one, am not going to stand for this, and you people shouldn't either.

First thing you need to do, is file a complaint with the school system. Then we will go over there heads.
We'll get these out of towners off this ball team, one way or another. Thanks for your support on this matter.

I have a child with supper thick hair too. We have just been leaving conditioner in (without washing out) and have managed to not have any. It works two ways. It unsticks nits if you happen to get any, then makes if nearly impoasible for adults to stick to the hair shaft.

We were having the same problem. We went through the battle for 3 months and I did everything I was supposed to. You mix the conditioner and the olive oil and leave in on their hair for an hour with a shower cap on their head then you rinse it out. We combed their hair with the lice comb and then carefully poured 99% alcohol on it and then after it was covered we left it on for about 10 minutes with the shower cap on then preceded to wash it like we always would
