You not only have to use the shampoo, you need to use a nit comb to get all of the eggs out.

Have you done that?

How did they get them in the first place?  Could they be getting exposed to the original source repeatedly?

The shampoo is very toxic!!! how long has your child had it that you could use it 5 times?  Did you read the bottle?  i think you can only use it like once a week or you can poison your kid!

I just combed the eggs and bugs out.  you dont need chemicals for that.

 Pour olive oil all over their hair, have them sleep in a shower cap. In the morning re-soak in olive oil and use the comb. Continue over and over with the olive oil and shower cap at night. To wash out olive oil use dawn dish soap then your regular shampoo and conditioner. The longer you can keep the olive oil in and the shower cap on the better.

Tea tree shampoo. Lice hate it. You probably need to go to a hair salon to get it, but it works amazing and if you use it, they will stay away from you.

You could also just buy a bottle of tea tree extract from Walgreens or somewhere like that and add it to your regular shampoo.I agree with you it works GREAT!

I saturate the hair in baby oil, put a shower cap on and leave it for the day. Then wash hair after supper and go through with a baby comb section by section and it all cones out. Wash pillow, spray furniture, vaccuum attack the whole house, every nook and cranny
