Ok, my 2 y/o has lice, I don't know how she got it. My school-aged children don't have it, I have checked, my husband checked and both my sisters checked, they don't have it. My boys are getting their heads shaved, my husband shaved his head last night. I know people have said that tea tree oil is a lice repellent, how much do I use and does it go in the shampoo or conditioner? Every one is being treated and everything is being washed, just so you know.

  • Oh my!! How horrible! I have never heard anything about the Tea Tree oil remedy. Here is the link to a site especially for this particular issue. They help parents with really good info to get rid of the pesky little creatures.

  • Does she go to Daycare? that lice treatment at wal-mart works good ( i had lice like last year, i worked in a daycare..haha, and caught it for the first time in my life) but clean heads get it the fastest
    Hope no one else gets it!
