I picked up head lice from my stepdaughter when I used her hair brush. I tried EVERYTHING - vinegar rinse, tea tree oil, rosemary oil, OTC products that smelled and burned my scalp. I needed to get my hair colored and there was no way I was going to go to a salon with head lice. So I bought an OTC box of hair color and that actually killed all the lice. I combed them out with a nit comb after I colored my hair and showered and dead lice and eggs were just falling out. That was 4 weeks ago and to my knowledge they are gone FINALLY. I haven't been itching and have been inspecting my hair and haven't seen any more eggs. I know this is not an option for children but just wanted to share for any adults that may pick up lice from their child.
