  • usually 7-10 days. Go buy the lice shampoo now and treat their hair now to avoid any eggs hatching.

  • As mommy of two said 7-10 days. You can check now to see if there are any lice that transferred to your childrens hair.

  • if you get a good tight teeth metal lice comb and dampen the hair with a little water then a small amount of conditioner proceed running lice comb through the hair in different directions every few swipes take lice comb and wipe on soft tissue or paper towel if small pepper like specs or live lice appear then you need to take action .

    this type of check will be able to detect any lice exposure
