Don't leave! lol I know it's not a pleasant subject, nor is it controversial (I don't think) but I could use some help. If you know anything....please, please, please help!
We found some nits in my oldest daughter's hair on Tuesday and some nits and one nymph on my middle daughter. We did the shampoo treatment and then picked out all the remaining nits. I didn't find any dead adults on my middle girl but found three on my oldest. (We also vacuumed all the furniture and washed everything.)
Yesterday we found about five nits on both of them but they found a few more on my oldest daughter at school and they thought they found a live one.
So my question is, is that normal to find a live one after using the shampoo? How long are we going to keep finding nits? The shampoo says to repeat treatment after 7-10 days but can we do it sooner? Also, when can they go back to school? The school said we could send my oldest back after her treatment but I kept her home today since they thought they saw a live one.
I bought some tea tree oil shampoo from California Baby that's supposed to control lice. It's an every day shampoo that you can use whether you have lice or not so we used that yesterday and will keep using it. I thought that might help so they don't get any new ones plus I can use it on my one year old. I also ordered a spray on, leave-in conditioner that's supposed to keep you from getting lice. I thought that would help with not getting any new ones.
This is such a pain. I just want to make sure I am doing everything I can to get rid of them and so they don't come back.
