  • cetaphil..the face cleaner..rub it in your hair and let it sit for about 20 mins and then wash it out and ex's daughter had a bad case of it and the pediatrician told us to use it

  • I've heard of that before too as well as Scalpacin, of the off brand from CVS..its about $6.00....... It stuns the live ones and kills them eventually when your head is soaking in have to keep pouring it over your head or have some one pour it for you.

    Nit picking is the only sure fire way to get the nits.........hate those dang things too!

    GOOD LUCK!!!!

  • I have very thick hair and had a problem with lice when I was a child. Nothing worked until we tried vaseline and a shower cap. Put the vaseline in your hair and put a shower cap on for about an hour. The lack of oxygen smothers them and they die. Those OTC shampoos do not work

  • Vegetable oil. It smothers them, then use the a comb with teeth that are close together to get the eggs and nits out.
