I thought it was every third day for 10-14 days (or until you get no
live lice out for two sessions) j9

Have you seen pictures of billys hair? In Scotland they fry Mars Bars in

For full access to the web pages referred to below please use this URL.
This is NOT a commercial site.

There is a very comprehensive FAQ page which many will find of use. I
found that after finding a powerful treatment that was not poisoning my
girls, head lice became as treatable as a cut knee or a headache. No
worries or anxiety. Now I may be biased because it was my tiny
brainwave, but that is exactly how I felt then and do now. Please note
that I have passed on the information in full to help parents and
children everywhere. I put up the pages to help as many as possible,
knowing full well that in many cases where the need is greatest there
will be little or no web access. Those in a position to pass on first
hand experience of this method are strongly urged to make the effort to
do so. Thank you Mae Loat

btw read the post and by washing your hair in rosemery it stops and kills lice. Before washing your hair take a piece of rosemary off a bush (me mum had some, u could grow it) and place in boiled water and then wash your hair normally with shampoo and conditioner. After you have finished take the bowl of rosemary water and cool it with some cold water then rinse it through your hair and LEAVE IT IN. Your hair will smell of rosemary but the lice wont be there, this is safer then most solutions!

The conversation seems to be rather aged, and it looks like something out of an irc database...

your best with conditioner and a nit comb, cheap, little bit painful but it does get the job done

I find rosemary oil is better. Comb it through the hair and it repels the little blighters.
On another note this thread is rather old. I thought there was something wong with my pooter! :eek:
