My kids are bathed every two days, including their head. They have fresh clothes daily and I wash their hair w/ tea tree shampoo, use tea tree gel and spray their heads, jackets and backpacks with tea tree oil/water mix. I do this, every day. I started this three years ago after our first round with lice. But every year, one of my kids get it. We knock it out for the rest of the year usually. The above regimen had me thinking I was safe (sort of) since we didn't get it multiple times in one year. Does anyone do something I am missing? If this isn't protecting them, what will? BTW, no hats or helmets are ever worn. I'm so frustrated, I'm afraid to snuggle with my kids! SO mad! Any advice??? PS: I have been told by another parent that another kid had lice in class recently but the school didn't send out paperwork. So I'm pretty sure it came from class, not that I can fix that issue....
