We have finally won a months long battle to rid my daughters hair of lice, but she has so many of the "nits' in her hair and is so tenderheaded I am SERIOUSLY considering just cutting her shoulder-length hair as short as I can without her being too ashamed to come out of the house! After spending probably close to $100.00 on different commerical lice ridding products and homemade suggestions the ONLY thing that worked for us was coloring her hair, and I did mine at the same time, the same color so she would not feel too awkward.
My daughter has an incredibly thick head of hair. It is going to take days and days to try and get all those nits out, and it is so painful for her. Have any of you tried those special electric combs they sell in the sections with the lice removal products? They cost about $20.00. Since it is right after Christmas we are SO tapped for cash right now, I know it sounds terrible but I hate to spend that much on them if they don't work, like I did with the shampoo that was supposed to kill the lice but didn't work.
It has been months since she had a professional haircut and I would really like to get those out so I can take her to get her haircut.
