    Basically I saw some headlice in a girl's hair, and I hugged her the last day.
    Then I noticed I started itching
    I had a look and I have headlice.
    WTF am I going to do! I have beautiful clean hair what shall I do?

    Wash it with special cream/headlice lotion. It's not rocket science.

    Unfortunately they're not fussy and how clean your hair is doesn't make a blind bit of difference. You could use a medicated treatment and if you do follow the instructions to the letter - best to do one treatment too many than have to start all over again - it's a very short life cycle. If not go through your hair with a fine-toothed comb and plenty of conditioner regularly (ie every few days), making sure you start right at the roots.

    Also keep in mind treatments only kill live lice, not the eggs so you'll still have to comb even if you do use one and many lice are becoming resistant to different treatments so you might have to try a couple before you find one which works.

    Hope this helps

    Lotions, potions, and combs will be your friends for the next couple of weeks.

    Is there people really this needy that they need to make a thread for every little thing in their life? I'm pretty sure you'll have seen the adverts for head lice solution, so the obvious answer would be to go and get some of that then use it.
