    The baby oil will smother them, it works best if you put a plastic bag over the hair. The main thing is using a nit comb and combing thru her hair and removing bugs and nits. If all the nits are not removed, new bugs will hatch. I am so sorry you are going through this. There is nothing easy about it, trust me I know.

    My daughter has lice not to long ago and we tried the over the counter stuff and it didn't work at all.

    I would recommend http://www.lice-rx.com/ I bought thi product after spending money at the local grocery store for the over the counter stuff that didn't work, I can honestly say this stuff worked.

    http://www.lice-rx.com/
    In only 1 treatment of this stuff, she no longer has lice.

    We struggled with that for a long time...... seems my daughter kept getting reinfested. I have 3 kids. #1 Treat EVERYONE not just your daughter. I used the walmart brand of lice shampoo and comb gel. Wash all bedding and spray the mattresses, throw all pillows and stuffed toys in dryer for 10 min on high heat. If too big for dryer put in plastic bags for 14 days. Sterilize and wash or replace all grooming items. After 1st treatment make sure you retreat in specified time to get newly hatched eggs. After you shampoo, have child sit still and literally pick all the eggs and bugs out of her hair. Put a bright lamp overhead where you can see better. After nits and bugs are out, rub Olive oil in daughters hair then put shower cap on head until morning....... not only does the oil work on lice, it conditions it at same time. (you can even add a bit of lavender oil scent for a better smell) Do this on a weekly basis to prevent reinfestation. The best shampoo to keep lice away is Green Tea or T gel. It took us 6 months to become lice free! Stay on it and good luck!
    We have been lice free for 3 1/2 years now.

    (I could not figure where we were getting it, then noticed neighbor girl (daughters friend) sitting on couch scratching away.... called her mom and she told me that she cant get rid of it. This child had spent nights at my home and her mother never told me!)

    ok ladies.....i treated everyone in my house too. i forgot to mention that in my 1st forum. i will keep the baby oil in her hair for now. my plan is to keep baby oil in her hair for a few weeks just for prevention. i will try the t-gel & green tea. that sound slike a excellent idea. i just can't figure out where she got it from, since she don't go to school or never has play dates. i figured my older kids were carrying it, but they don't even have it. well thanks for all the great advice, i appreciate everything. i will keep you all posted!!!! thanks again!!!!

    Having gone through it a couple of years ago I can sympathize with you.

    1. Do go through her hair each night and pick out the eggs.

    2. Real Mayonnaise also works. No Miracle Whip

    3. Dry Everything in HOT. That will kill the lice in the bedding and clothes.

    I've used olive oil with success. You still have to meticulously get rid of the bugs and nits, though.

    I went through this w/my Dd a few yrs ago...it REALLY creeped me out.
    The Dr. told me I could apply "real mayonaise"..not miracle whip to her hair and have her wear a shower cap over night and it would kill the lice.
    No matter what you use (I dont reccomend chemicals, if possible) you will have to go through all the hair & remove the lice & eggs...good luck!
