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.
