  • It is extremely hard to get rid of them. We just went through this! Get a metal lice comb. In the shower, put conditioner in your hair. Then comb through. Look at the comb after every comb through. The eggs will look like pepper. They are dead once they leave the body, just rinse the comb in the shower water. If you are still itchy, you still have them. Get a bottle of tea tree oil and add it to your shampoo, conditioner, de-tangle spray, everything that you put in your hair. That will keep them away. I even put a few drops directly on my head while the conditioner is in. Good luck!!

  • Have someone else check your hair. Lice tend to hang out by the ears and back of head. If you still have it and they are alive check those spots. GL
