Hair color and flat iron. I am a licensed cosmotologist and when we were in beauty school I remember a whole chapter about lice and dealing with it. The number one remedy that was listed in the book was hair color with ammonia in it. It kills the lice and most of the nits. I would not necessarily recommend this for children but it really works on adults. I also recommend blow drying the hair and flat ironing it. The heat from the iron will pop the nits that are left making it really easy to comb out what nits may have been left. The flat iron in my opinion is better for this because of the direct heat applied to the hair. The only difference in the use of this flat ironing technique is you need to section your hair into 1/4 inch sections instead of 1/2 inch sections. That way the iron will touch more hair each time.
