  • the other day a lady on here said she had lice and she used mouth was, she got it all over her hair wrapped it and let it sit for 15-20 minutes and she said it killed all the lice, so maybe this will work for you

  • You can cut and thin your hair
    that is what I did when i was in 2nd grade when I got lice nothing worked so we had to cut my hair and thin it out then stuff worked.

  • when I had it as a kid my mom put all of our stuffed toys and bedding in the big black garbage bags with the lice spray and left it like that for 2 weeks, then washed it. for my hair she used rid. put it in my hair, used one of the combs, then put plastic wrap over my hair and let it sit. she also had me sit out in the sun so it would get warm. I had VERY long VERY thick hair and that did the trick. if they come back again, my guess is that someone at school has it and isn't being treated. you can also flea bomb your house. they sell them at grocery stores and work for lice too.
