Listen up, here's what you do: Put CETAPHIL coating the child's head and then blowing it dry w/ the cetaphil in it after combing for lice. Do this every day (rinse out at night and apply in the morning or vice versa). Old lice suffocate, new lice and eggs suffocate and any brand new ones cannot cling to the hair shaft. The blow drying also kills lice/nits. You must really saturate the hell out of their hair so it's completely wet. Drying takes extra long but leaves the kid looking like he's sporting the "wet" look or you can comb it to look all dry. It has to stay on 8 hours. Do this every day for two weeks following the last time you see a live louse. If you don't see one for three days and suddenly one appears, do it again for 14 days (starting over, new lice cycle). You don't have to wash everything, but you must DRY it for at least 25 minutes to kill lice/nits. Towels, coats, backpacks, clothes, pillow, stuffies & vacuum .
