If the is a lot of itching and scratching you know the worst.
Try to find a fine comb and section small amount of hair, try to avoid products which are not natural.

I had the same problem years ago but to check her good separate her hair above the ears and on the very top back on her head and look. It will look like tiny little white dandruff but if you can pull one out and press it with your nails and here a pop it is lice, good luck. It cost me over $600 to treat my house, furniture, bedding and heads when I went through it.

You can go to Walgreens and buy a battery powered lice comb. It's like a bug zapped for lice. It's called the Robi comb. It doesn't hurt your child but if she has lice it will zap(kill) the bugs and comb it out of the hair. I routinely run it thru my children's hair as a precautionary measure. Good luck!

dont know if you know this but ,mayo is good for your hair also helps the dryness ..after i did my daughter it helped with drynness and shine..i kept mine out one day ..then repeated the treatment in a week...the schools need to be reported to health dept.or board education since they receive funds

Also if you get rid of it put hair products in their hair will prevent them from getting it. My friend had a little girl who got all the time and someone toldbher to put hair products like hair spray gel and mousse in her and she wouldn't get it. After she did they her daughter never got it again

My daughter uses hair products and got it so that's something sure did us no good. I have used tea tree oil in our shampoos and know many other parents who have done the same and I've never had a problem or issue sense and to my knowledge neither have the other parents children. You can also purchase tea tree shampoo at the salon, that's what I did. Salon professionals have said its good to keep lice at bay as well.

Shave her head, coat it with Vicks Vapo Rub mixed with turpentine. If it was good enough for your grandparents it's good enough for her. It'll kill crabs too. Pure turpentine soaked into a corncob and rubbed on hemorrhoids will give amazing results too.

Is your kid scratching her head? If not she probably doesn't have lice. And when the mother called to tell you about the lice you should have told her to come pick up her kid.
