      This is gonna sound crazy, but try flea shampoo for dogs, get the cheapest you can, just be sure to read the label and make sure it says lice too in addition to fleas and ticks. Use it every day, make sure you wash all pillows and bedding as well. I had to do this with my daughter when she had it, her hair is sooo thick and after a few days no problems.

The next morning just wash your hair

      In general: These three clean up steps should be done once a week at the time of the weekly treatment. 1. Sterilize all the family's combs and brushes. You can choose one of two methods. You may soak the combs and brushes in isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol for 10 minutes or you may put them in the dishwasher on the full hot cleaning cycle. 2. Treat all bedding at the time of each lotion application. Take all sheets, pillow cases, blankets, comforters, and bedspreads from the beds in your house and run them in the dryer for 10 minutes on high temperature. Then put the bedding back on beds. You do not have to wash it. 3. Patients should change to new fresh clothes after each treatment. Put dirty clothes
      in the laundry hamper for later laundering. <DIV apple="true"><SPAN class="Apple-style-span" style="FONT-WEIGHT: normal;FONT-SIZE: 12px;COLOR: rgb(0,0,0);TEXT-INDENT: 0px;FONT-STYLE: normal;FONT-FAMILY: Casual;LETTER-SPACING: normal;BORDER-COLLAPSE: separate;FONT-VARIANT: normal;"> <SPAN class="Apple-style-span" style="FONT-WEIGHT: normal;FONT-SIZE: 12px;TEXT-TRANSFORM: none;COLOR: rgb(0,0,0);TEXT-INDENT: 0px;FONT-STYLE: normal;FONT-FAMILY: Casual;LETTER-SPACING: normal;BORDER-COLLAPSE: separate;FONT-VARIANT: normal;">

      FYI... The cleaner your scalp the more likely you are to attract the critters. It is an ugly trick they pull but try not washing your hair for a while because by this point I am just wondering if you have the "phantom itches". When ever anyone says the "L word" around me I start scratching and won&#39;t have been anywhere near anything to be in contact with the bugs! You may have over cleaned your scalp to the point where it is lacking natural moisture that belongs there making it dry and itchy. Try going a few days with doing nothing and see if it doesn&#39;t start to feel better.

      My hairdresser told me that you really have to treat every 3-4 days

      for awhile to get all the ones that hadn't hatched when you treated

      originally. This past year lice found its way into our home, three

      kids and I got it. Oh, the itch (and did I mention I was pregnant at

      the time?). I had been checking them because they were itchy but

      couldn't find anything and chalked it off to cold temp change and dry

      scalp. Then I saw some bugs in my daughter's head. I started out

      with the Nix stuff, but when I'm still getting lots of LIVE bugs I

      knew I had to use something else. So, next day or so did the olive

      oil treatment and I saw a huge improvement. Then about 3-4 days

      later started to a couple of live bugs (when combing with the lice

      comb) so did another treatment. I found the olive oil treatment

      worked far better than the chemical ones. Pillows and such that you

      can't wash, toss in the dryer on high heat (can't remember how long,

      30 mins?). We did vacuum everything we could. I washed

      sheets/blankets/coats every day for close to a week. I can't even

      begin to imagine trying to deal with this and working full-time.



      I did read somewhere that it could take awhile for the itch to go away

      even if the lice is gone.

      Have someone else check your head. I agree about itching after they

      are gone. My son was bit by a flea (we think from the rabbits) but he

      was still in diapers and going to nursery school. Anyway, the flea set

      up an allergic reaction and he had dry bumps all over his arms, legs

      and some of his tummy. It looked bad and felt even worse - felt like

      sandpaper but large bumps!! Dr finally prescribed some type of silver

      cream that finally worked but he had those bumps for almost a month. I

      put long sleeves and long pants on him and took a note from Dr that it

      wasn't anything contagious. Amazing what your body does!! KarenMO

      If you have left the Tea Tree oil on at least 45 minutes, and at least

      4 nights in a row, you are lice free, what about your pillow? I am

      sure you washed your pillow cases, but did you treat your pillow? You

      can do this, either seal it in a bag for at least a week, or seal it

      is a bag and put it in the freezer for 24 hours. That should do

      it....you can also make a mist with the Tea Tree oil to help kill any

      that my be living in your bedding, if you can get your hands on a

      plastic mattress cover ...even if you can borrow one for a week, seal

      your mattress in it, this is good and should be done once a year

      anyway to kill dust mites.

      Blessings
