Been following the lice posts with interest, as my boys picked this up at preschool several years ago. We tried everything, mayo, vinegar, tea tree oil, every product you could buy–finally I got fed up and used Alcohol, that did the trick. I combed it through their hair every few nights for 2-3 weeks (to get the newly hatched buggers) and finally they were gone.
The kids hated the smell. and I really had to be careful to keep it out of their eyes, but it’s the only thing that worked for us.
