Nits

ive got nits. Well, i had nits last night. plural as i found 1 and figured there was at least a mate in there somewhere. I doused my head with tea tree soloution and combed this morning. i found 2 more of the bastards. I feel VERY unglamorous, not that i felt particularly glamorous last night in the five minutes before i discovered i had nits. But i feel pretty daggy. Haven't scratched today so thats a good sign but i keep worrying that a big dead one will fall out and land on my white tee when im out. Ugh. The kids are s'posed to get nits not me, but i suspect that one of them has given them to me, so its treatment and combing for them tonight too. Sigh. i thought we had left nits behind.

Treat everyone together , that way they cant hop from 1 host to the other.

You know they only like clean hair anyway.

Dont buy expensive nit treatments, t tree solution is good or exelpet dog soap (bar) has same ingredients as nit shampoo at 1/5 of price.

Hide toothpicks , little buggars can pole vault..

Well Damn! That is so unfair!

Brings a whole new meaning to the term, nit picking. :-)

Oh ugh Kel...you have my utter sympathies. I used to work in childcare and only once (I was so lucky that it was only once) I found two live lice, both large and adult size, in my hair. I am sure I found them the same day I picked them up as that was all there was, no nits, no juvenile lice.

Do you use the hair conditioner method for getting rid of the buggers..?? It's just the best method and is actually good for your hair.

Let me know if you want more info on it.

You need a large G&T after dealing with all that combing and treating.

LOL. i think i git rid of them. No more movment...sometimes we use conditioner and comb othertimes we have used tea tree. Long hair and 2 girls (3 inc. me) are a pain when it comes to lice, ive offerred to cut their hair really short...
