Unbelievable. I know, right. What is it about a bunch of kids hanging together, sharing EVERY SINGLE THING THEY OWN, that makes lice spread like that. Yes, that was some serious sarcasm there, if you didnt catch that. Lice are a nightmare, we seem to get them every few years it seems. We used and THANK YOU GOD it worked , so we keep that on hand now. But a few good tips i learned from going thru this myself is this;

put some hairspray or gel in their hair in the mornings before school, and CHECK their hair after school. Trust me , you wanna know right away if you got them, not after a week or 2....they get more infested by then. I know, gross right.

Also, tell them to not share hats/brushes/hair accessories with friends. problem is they will still hug their buddies, and that spreads them too.

Hmm, what else. I dont use Nix/rid anymore since it does nothing but damage our hair, and burn the scalp. doesnt kill them all anymore. The more natural treatments seem to work better, since lice are immune to chemicals in the over the counter stuff.

Also, if you are dealing with killing them, be sure to lysol your home/car, that will help kill some of the ones hiding around, and in the closet too. Wash everything on hot water too.

Good luck! hang in there!:) they will be killed.:)
