Head lice scourge of schools

by / May 3, 2007

Everyone remembers the nit nurse at school and the horrors of having to see her. But if you are a parent you will also wish Nora the nit nurse was back in business. Ever since my children started school we have been plagued by head lice. And sitting and combing long curly hair every night with a miniscule comb isn’t my idea of fun. I thought I had found a solution — using tea tree shampoo and conditioners seemed to get rid of them and for over a year our house has been nit free. But I recently heard that tea tree oil shouldn’t be used on children long term so stopped — and we’ve got nits again!! Does anyone know if this is true? What do you recommend to your clients? I’d love to know. ruthx
