    My mum combed through all my hair with a nit comb and washed it all out with whatever stuff she bought. I was 13 so this was almost a decade ago.

    I'm not sure if the lotion kills the eggs? If not make sure to do the lotion then get a nit comb from the pharmacy and spend a good while combing them out in front of the mirror. I'm not sure how you would check the back though, could your mum help?

    The lotion kills the nits, but the nits leave a lot of eggs which you need to get rid of. The eggs stick to the hair, get a nit comb.

    Get a treatment from a pharmacy and follow the instructions. That should be leaving it in for some amount of time and combing through your hair with a bit comb to remove the eggs.
    Make sure you comb through well and keep going until you stop seeing any bits in the comb.
