      months until someone told me about that stuff and after 1 treatment we havent had them anymore, thank god. that was 4 years ago.

      <div style="font-family:arial, helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:12pt;">Lice don't like hairspray or sticky hair products or dirty hair. When my daughters were continually getting them I finally decided to treat them with Nix, bought one of those$20 electric combs they sell at Wal Greens and combed their hair every night for2 weeks or until nothing showed up. Then on anongoing basisI washed their hair with T-tree oil, which I mixed myself and smells gawdawful (I bought the T-tree oil from a healthfood store and put it in their regular shampoo), and put mouse and gel and hair spray in their hair anytime they went out. We haven't had it since.

      How long are you leaving the mayo or olive oil on your

      head? A couple of hours should do the trick.



      And are you sure you still have lice? You can still

      itch for a while after they're gone...

      FYI lice Love clean heads so it is not a matter of clean or dirty. Has anyone seen any lice on your head since all this treatments? Do you think that it could be an irratation from all the products and treatments, over washing your scalp? Like dry skin or dandruff. And if you think it is still the lice are you making sure they are not in or on your bedding, clothes, If you have a stuffed animal or something on your bed etc. Are you sure you got all the nits out if not you will keep getting them.

      Hi Donielle,



      If it has to be really cheap, you may want to check out the mobile home

      parks in your area. Around here they sometimes give the homes away for

      the fixing up. Then you would still have the lot rent, but probably

      cheaper than rent.

      Yes, EVERYTHING needs to be treated. Things that can't be run on HOT

      in the dryer need to be bagged up andelft alone. Couches and such

      need to be sprayed with a special lice spray as well as all the seats

      in teh car, car seats, strollers, etc. Anything like rugs, drapes,

      couches, etc can temporarily 'host' lice.



      When lice are in ones hair, they tend to stick close to the scalp, so

      a haircut would not do alot of good. I remember getting them myself.

      I have full, thick hair almost to my waist. I was working a new job

      as a preschool teacher. Never having had lice, I did not know the

      symptoms. By the time it was discovered, i was completely infested

      (ewww!). I had my boyfriend at the time going through my hair,

      individually taking each egg (nit) out. It took him over 48 hours non-

      stop. I got so upset, I finally told him to take a knife and cut them

      out. I had a hairdresser that saw me after hours (they're not allowed

      to touch someone with lice). That did not help. I went to a

      dermatologist. Believe me...I was at wits end.



      If the mayo and all does not work, I can tell you somethign that

      might, but I have to deliver it with a warning. Kerosene will do the

      trick. If you use it, only do it on yourself. It is illegal to put it

      on your child's head. I think the warning is that it could cause

      neurological damage, but so can the prescription lice medicine they

      give you to use on children. If you use the kerosene, make sure it

      all gets rinsed out too.



      If you were able to leave the house for 2-3 days, that would be ideal

      as lice can not survive without a human body for very long. So, even

      if your house was infested with them, they would be dead upon

      returning. Just make sure you don't bring them along in suitcases or

      on your own heads.
