My daughter and I just got through a head lice episode. Our very first, probably not the last! I came to this sight and tried all sorts of things. The mayo thing, Rid Shampoo, and tea tree shampoo did not work for us. However, drenching our hair with listerine and keeping it on with a shower cap for 1-2 hours, then washing with Suave coconut shampoo and conditioner, leaving the conditioner on with a fresh showercap for 2-3 hours and some heavy duty combing with the Rid comb seemed to do the trick! I also blow dried our hair with a metal backed hair brush (goody makes them). The hair dryer heats the brush up and lice don't like heat! Just for extra precaution I flat ironed our hair too. I also used a Robi Comb when we first realized we had them! Its a bit pricey, but works wonders with the big ones!
