My children had to spend every other week at their father's house and every time they came home they had lice. I tried many different things and I finally found one that works for all three of my girls and they each have a different hair type. Put mouthwash in a spray bottle, soak hair in it. Put a shower cap on and leave it sit for at least an hour. Rinse mouthwash out of hair and shampoo with Suave Coconut shampoo and conditioner. Scrub scalp very good with the shampoo, rinse out. You can actually see these nasty bugs come right out of the hair, dead. After the hair is rinsed, blow dry it just as an extra precaution. After this process, put white vinegar in a spray bottle and soak hair with vinegar. Let sit for at least an hour and a half - the longer the better- with a shower cap on. After time is up scrub head again with shampoo and conditioner. Blow dry hair and straighten if possible. The vinegar dissolves the nits and the glue that holds them on. Anything that is left on the hair is flat and dead. Repeat this process one week later just to make sure. Also, wash all bedding and pillows. Make sure to either dispose of your brushes and hair things or boil them to make sure any bugs are off. I hope this helps!! These things can be very bothersome and quite a pain to get rid of. This has worked for me so I hope this helps someone!!!!
