So I have a sinus infection, Sara has strep and lice is spreading through their school. (Have I mentioned schools are germ infested!!!). I had to break out the lice repellant spray and pull everyones hair up again. Please send stay away lice vibes this way :)

I'm telling ya get the repelant spray!!!!!!! After all the shampooing use it everyday on everyone for a week or two and they will not come back. I have seven people in our hose. Two of my children got it and we immediatly used the spray on everyone and no one else got it and it never came back. The stuff was the best thing ever!!!!!

I agree with people not telling the school. I have heard good things about the comb too. Luckily we caught it early with my kids because only two of the five got it. I say it is because my other teo only wash their hair every other day where the two that got it are everyday washers lol!!!!! Lice love clean hair.

I can only imagine what you are going through. Thought I would give you some advice, thats not too costly too....
I grew up in South Texas. Lice is a raging epidemic down there. Lice are so bad the rx treatments from the doctor and the over the counter medications do not work. They have grown immune. They do not kill the eggs, your lucky if they actually kill the lice, much less getting the eggs out.... what a battle. I tried tea tree oil. It worked like magic. I did not even have to treat the house, which I know sounds gross.... but.... if you want to you can put some of it in your laundry... It is very very very strong smelling. I put a little bit in our shampoo, (hint: you want to use a bottle of shampoo that isn't full.) Within in days the lice were gone and she never got them again. Of course we kept using the tea tree oil. It is really amazing and about 3 or 4 bucks a bottle which really really lasts a long time..... Hope this helps... The smell is not something I prefer, that is why I put it in the shampoo, so the conditioner would mask it a little.

My DH is so tired of everything smelling like tea tree oil...I put it in everything...but come to think of it I didn't put it in the newest bottle of shampoo...I have read that coconut is also a bit of a repellent so everything for the last few months has been coconut with tea tree oil in it.
