  • AWWW! Yeah, you may have to strap her down to make her stay still long enough! LOL

    Try washing everything in HOT water 2x, unless you can just trash it. I would also recommend sprinkling baking soda or ajax on the floors and letting it sit overnight. Keep washing her hair w/ the rid shampoo and use no more tangles to help get the comb through. I had lice at 10 yrs old and I had hair down to my BUTT. Oh Lord, I thought I was going to die! My neck was sore for 3 days from leaning over the sink! LOL GOOD LUCK!

  • Wash or throw away all stuffed animals.Try combing out her hair before bedtime when she's too sleepy to put up much of a fight or ,instead of the comb the shampoo provides, purchase a regular fine tooth comb. It'll cover more ground quiker.
