First we washed the hair with Denorex, then conditioned it with Coconut Conditioner, to get the nits out we combed through with  olive oil. then to do her hair I mixed tea tree oil in hairspray.

I believe in natural remedies and organic products, but when it comes to something like that I'd be wasting not a second on anything short of RID.

Robi comb, it's a battery powered comb that zaps them dead. I bought one when my dd brought lice home constantly from school. I also do a weekly treatment of cocoanut oil. It's good for the scalp. Now I run the comb through her hair every other day and have found nothing in a few weeks.
