The key is not in what kind of shampoo you use initially, but in combing the nits out. Skip the plastic comb that comes with many kits and invest in a metal comb. And comb out every strand of hair. There is also a product you can by the not only loosens the nits, but also colors them bright pink so they are easier to detect, then you know when you have gotten them all out. Don't skimp on this process or you will be right back at it a week to 10 days later when those eggs hatch. To prevent re-infestation you should also go through all of the precautionary measures you can like washing all bedding, vacuuming well around the bed and in the child's room, sofa, etc. bag up all stuffed animals in a trash bag and store for at least 2 weeks in the garage or basement.
