I've never had lice in the house, but my neighbor gave me a tip to use coconut oil.  You can just use a coconut shampoo (like Suave) as a prevention tactic.  I didn't know if this was true or not, but I did research on it and found it was right.

Thanks. I bought some spray at Ulta that was suppose to prevent it. We haven't got it but who knows. Another Mom told me about another spray to get online but its $30 a bottle. The whole system shampoo conditioner and they even have mousse. It was really expensive. They also offer a service an RN comes to your house and shows you how to handle the lice so you can get rid of it. I hope we don't ever need this option.

Thanks for the info about coconut oil.
